Sacred Grove Community Circle in Fairfax County, Virginia, is an open circle welcoming people of all traditions and paths to our sporadic events and reaching out to serve people of any faith or none in times of need. Most of us are affiliated with other spiritual groups as well, and most of us have traveled winding paths. We meet here and online, a place between the worlds, for refreshment of spirit and swapping yarns with others on the way.
Sacred Grove is grounded in the Bhakti-Wiccan tradition of the Fellowship of the Sacred Grove,
We are one of the few civilian circles of Sacred Well Congregation (SWC), which is a universalist, independent, non-evangelical Wiccan Church organized for the purpose of conducting and promoting religious worship on alternative spiritual paths. SWC is a 501(c)(3) organization based in Butler, Missouri, which provides open, public venues for the practice of the Old Religions, promotes community benevolence efforts, provides spiritual support, and offers religious educational programs. Most of the other SWC open circles are on military bases, where they are open to all under the care of SWC-endorsed Distinctive Faith Group Leaders (DGFLs), who are under the authority of the military chaplains. Like those circles, we adhere to the Covenant of Five Tenets of SWC.
