Welcome to the official home of Georgian Wicca on the web

We hope that you will explore our site and learn more about our Wiccan tradition. Thank you for visiting and enjoy your stay.

About the image: We hope you will not be offended by this image of Pat and that instead it communicates his humor and that of the Georgian community in general.

The Georgian Manifesto

  • to honor the Gods of the Old Religion;
  • to aid the members to progress and improve themselves mentally, physically and spiritually;
  • to work magick for the benefit of members and any others who may seek out aid for right purposes;
  • to aid others in learning the Craft who truly desire the knowledge of the Craft for proper reasons;
  • to combat the untruths and to spread the truth about the Craft to those outside the Craft;
  • to work for peace, harmony, and unity among the various branches of the Craft;
  • to work for a better understanding of and a better relationship between man and nature.

The Georgian Tradition of Wicca was founded in 1970 by George (Pat) Patterson, Zanoni Silverknife, and Tanith in Bakersfield, California. We value the autonomy of our initiates and covens and uphold the principles of respect and privacy within our community.

Please note the following:

  • Online Initiations: While each teacher and coven operate independently, it is generally advised that Georgian Wicca does not provide online initiations.
  • Fees: We do not charge for training and initiation into Georgian Wicca.
  • Ritual Nudity: Ritual nudity is not a requirement within our Tradition. We respect individual comfort levels and personal boundaries.
  • Privacy and Respect: We prioritize the privacy of our members. Nude photographs are not requested, required, nor published, and we respect each individual’s right to privacy.
  • Consecration Rituals: Our Tradition does not include rope or cloth consecration rituals.
  • Global Presence: We do not know any initiates or covens affiliated with Georgian Wicca in Brazil.
