(Click on title below to go there)
The Tennessee Pagan Page is not associated with any particular group or coven. We are hosted by three groups who donate space on their server. We are an educational network dedicated to correcting misinformation about Pagans, Witches and Witchcraft in Tennessee. Witchcraft and/or Wicca are legally recognized religions in the United States and it is our mission to protect their rights through education and awareness.
It is our belief that Tennessee Pagans are generally good people! By keeping abreast of the latest news and updated information, as well as having ready access to critical resource tools, we, as Witches and Pagans, can not only empower ourselves, but we can develop programs to educate our local Tennessee towns and cities on who we are and what we do.
For information contact Lady Boudicca at: firstname.lastname@example.org

The Tennessee Pagan Page provides enhanced communications between Pagans throughout Tennessee and the Southeast. It also provides a buffer between Pagan groups and other religious organizations, helping to create the needed dialogue between religions. The Tennessee Pagan Page recognizes the diversity of beliefs within the philosophies of all Pagan and Wiccan traditions. This diversity makes us unique and viable, and will be preserved at all costs.
Members of the Tennessee Pagan Community practice a variety of positive life affirming faiths that are dedicated to healing the people of the Earth as well as the Earth herself. As such, the Tennessee Pagan Page does not advocate or condone any acts that victimize others, including those proscribed by law. We absolutely condemn the practices of child abuse, sexual abuse, and other forms of abuse that does harm to the bodies, minds or spirits of individuals. The Tennessee Pagan Page does not acknowledge the Christian "Satan," who is not in our religious pantheon. Tennessee Pagans do not practice "Black Magick," or the desecration of any person, place or thing. The Tennessee Pagan Page does not agree with or condone the practice of Satanism. Pagans are not Satanists and do not believe in the concept of a devil.
The structure of the Tennessee Pagan Page is made up of those who participate in its continuation.
There is only one level of "membership". Those who list themselves on the contacts page. There is no charge for "membership". Neither is there a charge to be listed. We subsist by efforts of volunteers.
The Tennessee Pagan Page is NOT a forum for a particulat group. The Tennessee Pagan Page is a group of Tennessee Pagans and Neo_Pagans; not Satanists, not Christian, not Buddhist, etc. We accept organizations and individuals as listees who accept the following five general elements of belief:
1. One must have an attunement with, a Love for and a kinship with Nature rather than the more customary attitude of being separate from and manifesting aggression and domination over nature.
2. One must have a reverence and respect for the life force and its ever renewing cycles of life and death.
3. One must follow a Pagan Ethic similar to: "Do whatever you want as long as the purpose of the action is not to harm another in body, mind or spirit, except in self defense."
4. Each and every individual must accept responsibility for his or her own actions and words (the devil did not make you do it!).
5. One doesnt have to accept the polarity of Nature but one must declare oneself to be a Pagan.
We offer Pagan Political Neutrality to all God/Goddess Earth_Based Traditions and Solitary Practitioners that follow a similar, Code of Ethics to that stated above.
How Can You Be involved in The Tennessee Pagan Page?: Help us to keep the right to religious freedom of Tennessee Pagans viable for future generations by volunteering your time and energy. Due to the donation of Web Space, we will not need financial support for the forseeable future. But, there is a great deal of work to do. Even if all you can manage right now is to submit letters and articles involving Tennessee Pagan issues, that will help to make more Tennessee Pagans aware of the importance of networking.
