Welcome to Circle Sanctuary!

DSC 9038Founded 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.

Young Professionals Network

  • ypn-logo2Are you a recent (or in some cases, not so recent) graduate who is finding it difficult to navigate the job market?  Are you finding it difficult to gain experience in professional skills needed to be competitive in the work place?  Do you wish that there was a way to develop your professional skill set by working with leaders in the Pagan community? 

    The mission of Circle's YPN is to engage young professionals and empower them to become future leaders within their community.  Through the YPN, individuals looking to develop professional and career soft-skills can take advantage of this opportunity to become engaged in online workshops, webinars, one-on-one calls, networking with other young professionals on our Facebook page, as well as workshops conducted at Circle's annual Pagan Spirit Gathering.
