Shining Moon Coven

6) Do you teach classes?  We do have free spiritual classes and I teach Reiki. Please look in the class tab for information.



 7) How can join your group? well we don't proselytize like some groups most of our members come to the group by word of mouth, friends. We do not take our spirituality lightly as members are screened very carefully to see a person's personality and energies will fit with the group. We do have a period that you can get to know the members of the group, and members to get to know you so you can be comfortable within the group. If you are interested can email Lady Artemis at and she will answer you as soon as she can. You must be 21 or over to join


 8) Why can't just anyone who  comes to circle  be a member of the coven? Well, you have to fit the energies and personalities of the group. All must get along with no issues. We are not like a  traditional church who accepts all that walk in the door.  If you have a conflict with the group,  do not mesh well with members, or a bad record you will not be admitted to the group as we are a place of  peace and love.
