Tradition

Hands of Change is an Eclectic Wiccan-Pagan tradition that celebrates and honors world customs as they relate to the seasons and our lives.

We practice rites to attune ourselves with the natural rhythms of life forces marked by the phases of the Moon and the seasonal quarters and cross-quarters.

We recognize our intelligence gives us a unique responsibility toward our environment. We seek to live in harmony with Nature.

We believe all spiritual paths are equal in the eyes of the divine. We respect all spiritual seekers and paths.

We believe that every faith is a road that leads the individual to their Higher Self and the Divine. We do not proselytize, but believe that each individual is unique and will find the path that will lead them to enlightenment.

We do not discriminate against a person based on religion, race, sexual preference, gender or political view. We celebrate the different aspects of god and goddess as manifesting in all people in a non-gender specific fashion.

We conceive of the Creative Power in the Universe as manifesting through polarity-as active, dynamic, and magnetic, intuitive forces-which support each other.

This same Creative Power lives in all people, and when balanced, manifests its self as an integrated force which creates a mature self-actualized person.

We seek to control the forces within ourselves that make life possible in order to live wisely and well, without harm to others and in harmony with Nature. We use meditation and magick, as tools to enable us to see ourselves clearly and with compassion, so we may constantly strive to keep our intentions and ourselves centered and in balance with the World.

We see religion, spirituality, magick, and wisdom-in-living as being united in the way one sees the world and interacts with it. We identify this worldview and philosophy of life as the Wiccan or Pagan Way.

We acknowledge that a depth of power far greater than is apparent to the average person exists in the universe. Because it is far greater than ordinary, it is sometimes called “supernatural”, but we see it as lying within everyone’s potential.

We recognize both outer and inner, or psychological worlds-sometimes known as the Spiritual World, the Collective Unconscious, etc. We neglect neither dimension for the other, seeing both as necessary for our fulfillment.

We empower those who join us by giving them a voice in coven matters by using an agreement seeking process and encouraging a permeable hierarchy of leadership.

We believe that by maximizing member participation in the decision making process we relate openly and continually improve communication skills. This enables every member to build upon the foundation of perfect love and perfect trust that is pivotal in our relationship with each other.

We promote growth in our members by offering opportunities to lead rituals and teach classes.

Our goal is to foster spiritual community through a policy of inclusion, which creates a diverse, powerful, and caring coven.

We reach out to society through our actions and intentions to create healing change and a stronger, more viable pagan community.
