Originally started classes in 2002 and officially Founded on July 4th 2007, the Wiccan Family Temple tradition at its core, is a practice based upon many traditions. This core tradition has been conceived by two eclectic witches by harmonizing and synergistically blending time honored tradition(s) into practical modern based witchcraft. The Temple follows the Wiccan Rede and Wiccan traditions. We believe in the threefold law, but do not necessarily believe in covens. Coven are not for everyone. We respect Witches of all traditions, levels and we enjoy coming together to celebrate, raise energy and commune in LIKE MIND. The Wiccan Family Temple creates an environment where witches can learn, share and gather to trade knowledge, experience and power. We study in solitude as well as in groups to gather hands on experience. The study of the divine and the craft and is an infinite process. We believe that a wise witch who is Wiccan never stops learning. For there is an entire world to learn about and many traditions to be. Our tradition has dedications NOT initiations. We believe that Wicca and Witchcraft is a way of life that should be shared with the entire family. We welcome our members to bring their children and their non-Wiccan family members to share in our open celebrations. We love to chant, sing and dance. We believe in healthy living, taking care of the Earth, our communities and the environment. The Wiccan Family Temple strongly believes in becoming politically involved and aware.

Luna is an Eclectic Solitary Wiccan Witch. She studied theology, mythology and magic since she was a child, where magic seems to have always been a part of her life. Luna is a teacher, artist and scientist by trade, which means that she cannot be a part of any religion that cannot accept evolution. Becoming Wiccan was like coming home to her.
