Welcome to the Sonoma County Pagan Network.
In Service of the Community
We are a network of groups and individuals who like to share in community and social activities. We welcome Pagans of all paths and persuasions. We do not generally hold public rituals, but have members that do. If you are interested in an open circle stop by and see what is going on!

There is a list of links (not always a complete one, as new finds are added when made available) of local Pagan and Pagan-friendly retailers, and we would encourage everyone to support these wonderful people. We do not accept paid advertisement, but list these because of their positive impact on our community.
If you are new to the area, please come to a meeting and introduce yourself, or join our email list. We are all members of this community and would like to foster that feeling in others.
We do not maintain a list of general contacts; however we would highly recommend Witchvox, an excellent site for Pagan contacts in your area.
The Sonoma County Pagan Network was founded in November of 2000 to help fill the need of having a centralized point of contact for the North Coast Pagan community. It has been very difficult to find the necessary resources that a Pagan needs, one of those resources being like-minded others. We all need community to share our trials and tribulations, our knowledge and traditions, our joys and accomplishments, yet it has been very difficult to find others or make contact with existing groups. This is very ironic, as this area has one of the highest concentrations of Pagans in the country!
The first meeting was held Yule of 2000, with Jonathan, Lacrima, Moki and Wren. The Sonoma County Pagan Network was born from that night and has grown to about 30 individuals representing several different Pagan groups, covens and Solitaires. Each meeting sees many new faces, and at any given meeting or gathering there are usually 10-20 people. The success of this group has been the wonderful people that give their time and energy to maintaining a great community of learning, teaching, sharing and friendship. If you are new to the area or a long time resident, we would encourage you to join us for an evening of friendship and community, and to share your experiences as a member of our Pagan community.
We do enjoy the talents of many wonderful people and encourage anyone who wishes to share a topic relevant to our lives as Pagans to do so. Check our event calendar on our Yahoo e-groups for upcoming meetings, and please come visit with us for a couple of hours. All brooms are to be checked at the door unless previous arrangements have been made!
The Sonoma County Pagan Network is a non-profit organization.
