Crooked Crossroads Society – We follow our own tradition known as Primitive Witchery, which incorporates American Folk Magic, the Crooked & Poison Paths, Hedge Witchery, Spiritism, Hearth/Kitchen Witchery, Wortcunning, and some Trad Craft.
Founded in 2006, the Crooked Crossroads Society is one of the oldest continuously running covens in Nashville. We follow our own tradition of witchcraft, rooted in Primitive Witchery, American Folk Magic, Spiritism/Spiritualism, & Traditional Witchcraft.
We’re an initiatory, oath and blood-bound coven consisting of both initiates and other members. We believe in honor & service to our ancestors, our community, & to one another. We meet twice per month on Full & Dark Moons for workshops, rituals, & other activities, and we celebrate several seasonal festivals every year as well.

Raven Moon Hearth – A group of motivated, Germanic Heathens in Middle Tennessee. We are a non-racist/nonpolitical tribe of doers.
We pride ourselves on our no-nonsense approach to Heathenry. We don’t mind getting our hands dirty, and we love being outdoors. We honor the Gods, our Ancestors, and all the spirits of the Northern Tradition.
We describe ourselves as “Pan-Germanic Heathens” because our traditions come from a wide variety of Germanic origins. Some of us celebrate the revitalization of our ways from the standpoint of our German ancestors, or from those of Saxon origin, and some still celebrate those ways from ancient Scandinavia with which it seems people are most familiar. Though some of us may hail the God of Thunder by the name Donar, some of us by Thor, and still others by the name Thunor, we recognize his universal influence and proudly call him Brother.
Thus it is with all the Aesir and the Vanir. We do not ascribe to any dogma and neither do we force our members to believe a certain way. We are tolerant. Some of us have a very literal understanding of the Gods and Goddesses while others prefer a more poetic approach. We encourage this diversity, and we proudly claim the title, Heathen, as our own.
We, like our ancient Germanic ancestors, are accepting of all peoples and all cultures save those who actively harm others. We believe that different peoples have their own understandings of the Divine and that this knowledge to them is as important as ours is to us. We do NOT condone ANY form of racism, hatred, or intolerance. We actively war against this tragic misapprehension as we believe it stains not only us and our traditions but also our Ancestors. The Germanic peoples of ancient times were powerful warriors, brilliant poets, and expert sailors. They acted as we strive to do with COURAGE and FIDELITY to our beliefs. Their contact with virtually every culture in the world has been established. They traveled all through the lands of Europe and the Middle East. We strive to rekindle this spirit of friendship and adventure. We strive to do HONOR to our Ancestors. We strive to promote SELF-RELIANCE and HOSPITALITY. We believe that we have found TRUTH in the DISCIPLINE of the Northern Tradition, and we will always PERSEVERE through whatever the Norns weave for us.
This is who we are. We are strength. We are unity. We are humble and yet we will proudly boast of our accomplishments. We are our Ancestors. We are their traditions. We are new traditions yet to be formed. We are the Doers! We are HEATHEN! We are RAVEN MOON HEARTH!
