I live in Hamilton and had lived in Newfoundland for some years and was a part of a quarterly discussion group called Women of the Wheel, for women, by women. I thought I'd start something like that here in Hamilton. If you are from Hamilton or the surrounding area, hit me up:

I'm on Witchvox too.

Sounds like a great idea. My area use to have something similar, (but for men and women) on the Wednesday after the new moon, called Moon Talks. I loved doing that, and was quite sad to see the shop that hosted it had closed down...
That is such a shame! I had a group in Newfoundland for both men and women, as well as the women's only group I was a part of. Since I am Heathen, my group for both genders ended up being a group full of men and me...haha good ole boy's club. We have Hammertown Pagan Pub Moot here which is wildly successful(they can even wrangle free live concerts at the pub they host from) but I thought it would be nice to have the women's group again.
It's too bad your group stopped being hosted. :(
That sounds really neat(I love that it's woman-idenfied people), too bad I don't drive!
That sucks! I don't drive either though, the perks of being a poor student.
It was a really unique circle. People from all different paths would get together, write questions they may have or topics of discussion on a piece of paper, which was then divided up, so that the questions were anonymous. People could voice their ideas or answers to the questions. It was neat, because it was such a wide range of people and beliefs. We had Druids, Asatru, Sumerians, Wiccans and a Voodooist, and others, so it made for some unique viewpoints. I have always thought about starting something similar at my university, but I don't have the time to commit to something like that, and I have had to move back into the broom closet regarding my wife's family, so I cannot be as open as I once was...
It really is so unfortunate when you have to hide something as benign as what you do with your free time that others don't(even rituals :P) or how you perceive the world around you. I guess that's why the internet and groups like this are so great.
I might have to take that idea about the anonymous discussion questions. It sounds awesome.

It helped give unique perspectives to things. I remember I was getting ready to move, and was shipping a bunch of my things with Greyhound. I was worried about the condition they would be in on the other side, so I asked what protection spells others had. Various symbols, chants, etc were brought up, but the one I remember best was the Voodooist, who described how he has used the rubbing of raw meat on the outside of the box while preying to a specific deity (Can't for the life of me remember who It was) as a protection spell. I thought it rather odd, but in the end, I learned more about his religion/practices, and my stuff ended up at its destination in one piece!
If only for the smell of the souring meat fat on the boxes repelling potential thieves, eh? :P
Shipping stuff with Greyhound sounds like a true royal pain btw.
I hope I get to get some perspectives like that if my group gets on the go and some people join up. Perhaps I need a little spell of my own to kick things in gear.
