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.

Sacred Fire Circle Sept. 2 - 6

  • sfc21-square

    September 2-6, 2021

    at Circle Sanctuary Nature Preserve
    near Barneveld, WI

    Come join us for three nights of sacred ceremony and community as we dance beneath the stars, sing, serve one another and bear witness to each others' truths! 

    Come connect deeply with community as we support each other on our mutual journey toward wholeness and holiness! Using the portals of Voice, Music, Movement and Service, we work ritual together from midnight to dawn, with the intention to release painful patterns and energies, gain access to our deep wells of creativity, and find personal transformation. We invite you to join us as we prepare the space before ritual by creating visual beauty and places for healing, meditation, and nurturance. As we work together, we also build bonds of community, friendship and mutual understanding which allow us greater trust and freedom within the Fire Circle. Join us in this powerful, deeply transformative journey. Songs, rhythms, poetry, dance or simply a hand to hold - your gifts are welcome here!

Community Day 8/14

  • aug21-wd

    Lend a hand!  Doing good, does you good!

    It’s time for our next event of the first phase in implementing our new and improved volunteer program!  That is getting you, our valued volunteers, back being of service on the land!  This couldn't come at a better time, as we need all the support we can gather in preparing the land for our first in-person festival in 16 months, Green Spirit! The Sanctuary really needs your helping hands! 

    During this phase of our re-opening, we’d like to invite all fully vaccinated volunteers to join us as we come together to work on defined community projects to get the sanctuary ready to re-open at the end of July.  At this phase, masks will be worn in buildings and portapotties. It’s going to take many helping hands to do this work!  We need yours!
