Looking for Initiation?
Gay men were meant to be witches. When this magical purpose was acknowledged, we were embraced by society. However, the centuries of homophobia have taken that calling from us, leaving many of us feeling isolated and alone. The simple fact is that the current incarnation of the Gay Community has forgotten its magic, and it’s time to remember.
Gala helps heal Gay men by reclaiming that ancestral magical purpose.
Through the process of dedication and initiation into Witchcraft, Gay men are provided with support through their journeys of self-improvement and creative expression.
Advice from an Elder
Initiation means to begin, with the implication of into the Mysteries. However, initiations begin nothing, they confirm the level of spiritual awareness an Initiate has already gained by study and induction into the esoteric Wisdom Lore of the Ancients.
An Initiation Ceremony is not undergone until the Ordeal of Mastery has been successfully experienced. It must be earned and shows the Initiate to be qualified to be considered an Initiate of a specific Level or Grade in the Craft.
If one is asked to undergo a Ceremony, first, before one may study the Craft, or Wicca, the process is being worked backwards. When one studies first and attains a certain body of knowledge and then is given the Initiation Ceremony, as a Confirmation of that level of lessons, one can be assured the true Occult Wisdom Tradition is being worked.

Gala covens don't hive. Instead, we unite.
Each year, all the covens within the Covendom get together at a secluded location for a week-long retreat.
During that time, we celebrate our shared love of the Craft, bond within our Circles of Companionship, and expand our understanding of the occult wisdom that underlies the Gay Mysteries.
