Welcome to Circle Sanctuary!

IMG 20180708 165956Founded in 1974 by Selena Fox, Circle Sanctuary is a 501(c)(3) non-profit Nature Spirituality church and 200-acre nature preserve dedicated to networking, community celebrations, spiritual healing and education. Circle Sanctuary sponsors gatherings and workshops at the Circle Sanctuary Nature Preserve in the forested hills of southwestern Wisconsin, USA.

Our vibrant community converges in person at classesFull Moon circles, seasonal sabbats, volunteer days, Sacred Fire Circles and at our annual week-long Pagan Spirit Gathering. Circle Sanctuary also keeps in touch with national and international Pagan communities through our email announcement lists, our social media presence, and our membership newsletter.  We provide information and aids to spiritual practice through our weekly podcasts, publications, and online shop.

We also advocate religious freedom and civil rights through the Lady Liberty League and participation in interfaith dialogues. We serve active and retired troops and their families through our military ministries, and we also operate a 20-acre green cemetery.

Celebrating Spring Equinox

  • Ostara-Sabbat-Plate-EggsLore and Rituals by Selena Fox

    Spring Equinox, also known as Ostara, occurs in the middle of March. It marks the beginning of Spring and the time when days and nights are of equal length. The Goddess manifests as Ostara or Eostre with her basket of eggs. She is accompanied by the Hare or Rabbit, a manifestation of the God. Green has been sacred to this Sabbat since ancient times, because it represents the greening of the land with vegetation. This is a festival of new growth.
