About Us

Our Sisterhood

Sisterhood of the Moon is matriarchal, Goddess-only Tradition and community for all, offering open lunar, solar, and other cosmic rites, devoted to the empowerment of women and people of integrity, honoring the Goddess within and without.

Sisterhood of the Moon was born on Imbolc 2010.  Our Tradition is connected to a vortex of energy that is primal, creative, and improvisational whilst remaining grounded in a shared cosmology framed by the cycling of the Moon and the Sun.  Our intention is to encourage each person to find their own Path to and connection with the Goddess.

Our in-person community gathers in the Bay Area of California, near Oakland.

Sisterhood of the Moon Tradition is inspired by Women’s Spirituality, Feminism, New England Witchcraft, Green Witchcraft, the Dianic Tradition, the Wise Woman Tradition, the Aloha Tradition, and the myriad other studies, trainings, and experiences of our High Priestess and Priestess-Initiates. We are a living, breathing Tradition, shifting, growing, changing, and expanding at all times. You are invited to align with our mission and add your magick to ours!
