Why become a monthly member of F.I.R.E.?
By becoming a F.I.R.E. Member you stay connected with F.I.R.E.’s events, educational resources, and programs. Membership is a way for you to directly:
- Receive the latest updates on F.I.R.E.’s work and upcoming events through email updates and a members-only quarterly newsletter
- Connect with like-minded people, coming together with a common intention to honor Divinity in Nature and establish a strong community
- Exchange information with The Elder Council of F.I.R.E. to help guide our programs and events. Your connection with F.I.R.E. will help us develop programs and services to better serve you as well as our entire community.
As we grow and develop additional programs, events, and resources for our members will be created, with the direct input of members as to what will benefit you and your spiritual journey.
Our membership program is just starting, and we hope you will be part of guiding its development!
Who can become a member of F.I.R.E.?
Just like the Pagan and Earth Based Spiritual and Religious community, F.I.R.E.’s membership is diverse.
Membership is open to those who practice one or more forms of Paganism or a related path of Earth Based Spirituality including Wiccans, Druids, Polytheists, Heathens, Unitarian Universalists, Witches, Humanists, Shamanic practitioners and those who use many other names.
Diverse is how we like it. F.I.R.E.’s membership program is not exclusive, and we welcome those who are also part of other organizations, traditions, covens, groves, kindreds, circles, fellowships, as well as solitary practitioners.
While the specifics of individual beliefs and practices may differ, members agree to a set of basic tenets including:
- A deep reverence and respect for Nature.
- A code of ethics that promotes and values well-being and harmonious relationships.
- Respect for the sacredness and essential human dignity of all persons, as stated in our Inclusiveness Policy.
- A belief and resonance of the mission of F.I.R.E.
