Founded in 1995 by Kaitlin Creed and the Shadowfolk Coven, The Temple of the Spiral Path represents the family of covens - Strangers' Gate and North Wyldewood - practicing the Shadowfolk Tradition of Witchcraft. We keep our focus simple so we can have the biggest impact possible. Everything we do is filtered through our focus on helping our communities and coven members live their best lives, in harmony with Nature and the Gods.
Our tradition honors the artistic soul of the Old Religion and celebrates our connection to the Old Ones through ritual music, transformative storytelling, poetry, and many other art forms. Devotion to the Lord and Lady is expressed by drawing upon the magickal creative abilities inherent in everyone. Our public Sabbat rituals are open to all, whether you've been practicing for years, or are just starting to explore Witchcraft and Paganism.
