On July 12, 2000 our coven officially became recognized as a church in the State of Kansas...
Church of the Mystic Moon.
Check out our Class Schedule for 2009 and get an idea of what sorts of subjects we teach our students about.
And now, a little about
Mystic Moon Coven. Dreamweaver and I received our 3rd Degree elevation in February of 1998 from the High Priest of Crescent
Moon Coven (the group we were studying with),
Shanem Falconfire. He asked us to take over his teaching coven for a time due to personal reasons. The group evolved and
transformed over time and so did we (student and teacher alike)... until Spirit said it was time for us to take a new name,
so in October 1999, Shanem took back the coven name he had given us at our 3rd Degree and we became known as Mystic Moon Coven,
one of the few teaching and working covens in the Kansas City. In July of 2000, we became a legally recognized Church in the
state of Kansas... Church of the Mystic Moon.
The group follows an eclectic path and we believe that spirituality is a very personal experience. We understand that what clicks with one person may have little meaning for another so even though we primarily teach the Mystic Moon tradition, we also try to expose our students to many other traditions of Wicca, Paganism and Shamanism in order to provide them with a wide, sturdy base on which they can build their spiritual lives. We also believe that the more we understand about other beliefs, the more we understand the people that follow those beliefs. In keeping with this, we also expose our students to other belief systems and encourage them to continue expanding their knowledge about beliefs other than their own.
As a coven (and as a Church), one of our goals is to train caring and competent Clergy for the Pagan community. To this end, we hold weekly classes (coven
meetings) at our Covenstead. We teach with a combination of discussions in class, hands-on experience, and written lessons (via our Degree
System). We celebrate the monthly Esbats and the eight Sabbats together and find time to have social outings as well as the spiritual celebrations. Mystic Moon
Coven comes together as an extended spiritual family. We care deeply for each other and offer each other unconditional love and support. Like any family, we do
occasionally have our differences, but we seek to resolve them calmly and from the position of love and understanding.

It is important to note that we are a teaching and working coven, not merely a social outlet.
If you are looking for a place to learn about the many facets of Wiccan Spirituality, then this may be
the place for you. If, however, you are only looking for a social outlet, you need to keep looking
because Mystic Moon is not the right place for you.
One of the methods that we
have in place to help our new Dedicate Seekers become oriented to the coven is our the
