Come As You Are Pagan Congregation’s Sprouts Family Circles are monthly gatherings of eclectic, interfaith families with a desire to co-create safe, fun, loving, magical, child-centric spaces where kids and their caregivers can come together to deepen their relationship with Nature, Mother Earth, and each other. We honor all spiritual paths and strive to create a mutually supportive environment in which to explore and develop our own unique practices to integrate Earth-based spirituality and parenting.

Families of all sorts, with children of all ages are welcome. Activities can be shortened or modified to make them suitable for even the youngest child, and the older children are encouraged to deepen their practice and develop their leadership skills by assisting adults with the planning and facilitation of structured activities, as well as assisting with caregiving and mentoring during the kids free-play/adult discussion time.


Our monthly circles include 8 seasonal celebrations and 4 community social gatherings. The loosely structured format is split between family time engaged in focused, age appropriate ritual and/or devotional activities (e.g. songs, stories, crafting, gardening, nature walks, etc), and kid's free social, snack and play time, during which the adults relax over coffee or tea and a snack while engaging in a facilitated discussion of monthly selected topics related to the integration of Earth-Based spirituality and parenting. Those who wish to go deeper can participate in suggested at home activities and join our online community to keep the discussion going at home.
