Sylvan Hearth Pagan Temple

Dillsboro, North Carolina

Cause Description:
The Sylvan Hearth Pagan Temple owns private property on which all rituals, workshops, festivals and social gatherings occur. We are very careful about not disclosing the physical location of our Temple to non-members for safety reasons. We are very traditional, and acceptance for training and Initiation will take time. We do not seek out or chase down prospective students. Having said that, we are not so rigid that we ignore new things and opportunities for personal growth. We are VERY approachable, friendly and down-to-Earth here. No big egos here! Our credentials and verifiable references are available upon request. We are family friendly (open to gay, lesbian, bi and transgendered folks) and drama free. We are traditional, yet we are most definitely not snobs! Snobbery and "witch wars" are two things we all have no time or respect for, in others or ourselves. We believe that "united we stand, divided we could burn.....again...." and it saddens us whenever we see some of the arrogance, snobbery and "snubbery" within some of the Pagan community at large. We remain open to kinship with other individuals and groups and we always respect the confidentiality and privacy of others, especially those who choose (or need) to remain in the "broom closet" for whatever reasons. Most Pagan paths are esoteric paths that involve at their core the search for balance, to know oneself, and to put aside the ego to become a sacred, altruistic and empowered being. For many esoteric paths, the spiritual death of the ego should precede the physical death of the body. Here, we search also for balance in all things. We involve all our children whenever it is appropriate to do so. (We do not train those under 18) We are a sincere bunch with a solid group mind and bond, a shared intent and style, love and trust between us, who have become a happy and mutually supportive family. Most of us are of a very scholarly bent, but although we love our books and esoterica, nothing replaces *doing*. The experience is where it's at. Feel free to contact us with questions, or just to say "hi"! We do welcome visiting fellow Pagans from other established groups at our open events, however there is a caveat: Our "open" events are open by invitation to those whom we know or are able to meet with ahead of time in order to get to know each other a bit, and to let them know, more or less, what is expected behaviorally (decent etiquette, appropriate behavior) , and find out how we may best serve their needs. We require oaths never to reveal our location or the identity of our members to non-members. We welcome friendships with other Temples and groups!
