Welcome to Circle Sanctuary!

DSC 9611Founded in 1974 by Selena Fox, Circle Sanctuary is a 501(c)(3) non-profit Wiccan 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 and through our quarterly CIRCLE Magazine.

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

Beltane Lore & Rites

  • by Selena Fox

    DSC 2730-smallAlso known as May Eve, May Day, and Walpurgis Night, happens at the beginning of May. It celebrates the height of Spring and the flowering of life. The Goddess manifests as the May Queen and Flora. The God emerges as the May King and Jack in the Green. The danced Maypole represents Their unity, with the pole itself being the God and the ribbons that encompass it, the Goddess. Colors are the Rainbow spectrum. Beltane is a festival of flowers, fertility, sensuality, and delight.

    Come lend your hands and voices as Circle Sanctuary gets ready for Summer and Pagan Spirit Gathering.  This free event is open to all willing to volunteer. 

    This year the theme of Pagan Spirit Gathering is Celebrating Community, so we'll be bringing both to our work as we craft the community Spirit Bags and pack up all the gear that is needed to make PSG happen.  We will conclude with a ritual to energize and bless the Spirit Bags we have crafted and the Pagan Spirit Gathering.
