The Pagan Federation

https://www.paganfederation.org

The Pagan Federation is an umbrella International organisation that benefit all pagans. Find out more about them on the above link.

We DO NOT charge for anyone to be a member of the Order of Celtic Wolves. This is because we believe that our path is tailored around individuals and should be open to everyone. We do occasionally make reading recommendations and organise rituals.

Rituals rarely come without cost, so how they are run is up to individual Nemetons or Groves. We encourage Groves to align themselves with the Order of Celtic Wolves and will advertise them. Just drop contact us with details of your Nemeton, Grove, or group. We encourage Groves to be open and public, wherever it is safe to do so.

We encourage ALL Pagan members (we welcome people from all faiths), though, to become members of the Pagan Federation and, if you want their magazine, take the digital option (let’s save the trees!). Here’s a bit about the Pagan Federation from their website: –

Founded in 1971 the PF seeks to support all Pagans to ensure they have the same rights as the followers of other beliefs and religions. It aims to promote a positive profile for Pagans and Paganism and to provide information on Pagan beliefs to the media, official bodies and the greater community.

The Pagan Federation regards membership of any organisations that refuse to support freedom of religion and equality of race, gender, and sexual orientation, as incompatible with our aims, objectives and values.

Membership is open to those aged 16 and over who identify as Pagan, and we welcome genuine seekers who accept and support our aims and objectives below:

  • To seek to support all Pagans in their personal and public life, to help ensure that they have the same rights as the followers of other beliefs and members of other religions.
  • To promote a positive profile for Pagans and Paganism and to provide information on Pagan paths and beliefs to the media, official bodies and to benefit the greater community in improving their understanding of Paganism and Pagans as a growing spiritual community.
  • To facilitate effective communication, education and dialogue within and between Pagan communities and with non-Pagans, through publications and events.
