Children & Youth

  • We respect, honor, and hold children as sacred within our circle and we also honor the path of parenthood – we are on your side and as a community we are learning to step up and raise them as a tribe – please help keep children safe and report anything that feels off to you
  • Please bring the young people in your life to this experience as we believe that they also have wisdom to share
  • Please bring things for them to do in the circle, or nighttime activities that can be done quietly around the mystical circle
  • Be aware that your young person may witness someone’s release within the circle – they may scream, or express anger, sadness, pain, or even a traumatic event. So please be aware of your boundaries with this kind of experience and young children – we honor their innocence
  • Yes young people are welcome in the circle, yes they can sing, dance, drum and all else that mystics do
  • We ask that you manage your child’s behavior and ask for help if you’re struggling, there are many wise people in our circle that could help if you’re open to it
  • Give a childless person a chance to be part of your child’s life – we all have wisdom and we all want to be part of influencing the next generation in positive ways
  • If you find yourself with a child, never take them away from the group alone unless this is agreed with the parent BEFORE you walk away
  • Please be aware of the young people in our circle as a community, respect the parents and always ask for permission about food, activities, and questionable conversations
  • Hollis Taylor (facilitator) is very experienced with helping young people get connected with their magickal selves and is always open to finding ways the community can support parents. Hollis is a grandparent to two and a lifetime mystical scout leader.
