Regional Spiritual Groups

Ardantane Pagan Learning Center
(North of Albuquerque near Jimenez Springs, NM)

From their website:

Ardantane is created to serve Spirit, the Pagan community, and those who hold the Earth sacred. It does this in many ways:

Ardantane is a Pagan learning center based on the Wiccan Rede and serving all positive Pagan traditions. It is based at one main campus (north of Albuquerque), but serves as a catalyst and resource for the creation of regional learning centers elsewhere.

Ardantane's primary purpose is to offer high quality programs of study for Pagan spiritual leaders, the Pagan community, and those from other spiritual communities who share similar values. It fosters excellence in teaching, using a national pool of skilled and well-informed teachers who are committed to their own continual growth.

Ardantane is an educational, social, and recreational center for the local Pagan community that collects, preserves, and makes accessible a central archive of Pagan information and historical material, including recordings of related visual and performing arts.

Desert Spirit CUUPs is a Las Cruces chapter of the Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans. We practice and educate others on Earth-centered spirituality.

No matter what your path may be, we come together to celebrate and share our beliefs.

The Sonoran Sunrise Grove
A Druid Fellowship (ADF)

P.O. Box 17874
Tucson, AZ 85731

From their brochure:

Neopagan Druidry is a group of religions, philosophies and ways of life rooted in ancient soil yet reaching for the stars. We are a part of the large Neopagan movement, one of the world's most vital and creative new religious awakenings. Like much of that movement we are polytheistic nature worshippers, working with the best aspects of the Pagan religions of our predecessors within a modern scientific, artistic, ecological and holistic context using a nondogmatic and pluralistic approach.
