There is a great deal of misunderstanding and confusion about Paganism and Wicca, often with some negative historical Christian connotations. However, the traditions under this umbrella comprise one of the fastest growing new religious movements in the country. Wiccan High Priestess Gwendolyn Reece will introduce these traditions and the ways in which practitioners can seek to create a generative new vision by daring to live a magical life.

Gwendolyn Reece holds a Ph.D. in education and master’s degree in religious studies. She is the Associate University Librarian and Director of Research, Teaching, and Learning at American University. Gwendolyn has been a member of the Theosophical Society in America since 1999 and is a Wiccan High Priestess of the Assembly of the Sacred. She leads the Theophania coven in Washington, D.C., and organizes the Sacred Space Conference, the largest annual esoteric conference on the east coast.
