Founders

August 12th 2010
Misfit Sanctuary was Founded in Love for the Gods & Goddesses, the Continuation of the
Old Ways & sheer determination to follow the Words of the Goddess.

The Divine Blessed us with such a Wonderfully Diverse Bunch of Crazy People that quickly
grew into a Family that never stops growing. One of our goals was always been to be a
Safe Haven, where people could feel comfortable enough to drop down their walls &
truly be themselves. Spiritually this has worked very well for us ūüôā it’s allowed us to learn,
share & grow. But on the other side of that………. my goodness ….. it opened up something else ūüôā
THESE PEOPLE ARE CRAZY!!!!
They will make ya Laugh until ya cant breath, Smile until your face hurts & Love until your
heart could burst. Just by being Themselves!!!!! They tireless give of their time & energies,
while supporting one another through the Ebb & Flow of life. Their Love for the Divine,
as well as their Beloved Misfits has Created a beautiful thing…….
Misfit Sanctuary, a place unlike any other

Below you meet our Founders, along with Founding Members. Without whom,
none of this would be possible.
Thank you all for all of the love & Spirit shared, for all of the fun & laughter & those stories
we cant share with others, because they “happened around the Fire pit”
I’m honored to call myself a Misfit, because I’m surrounded by true Blessings of the Divine ūüôā

Puck

Puck

¬†My name is David, aka Puck. I’m in my 12th year of being 27. I am originally from Blacksburg SC but now live in Kings Mt NC. I have been on the spiritual path all my life it seems in some form or fashion and I guess you would say I am an eclectic Pagan with very strong Celtic leanings with a good chunk Native American thrown in for good measure. I believe blood is a very powerful element and whom you share your bloodline with can empower you greatly and I share bloodlines with those two predominantly..but blood isnt everything! Although I’ve read about alot of deities, I resonate mainly with Cernunous/Pan and Cerridwen/Hekate as Patron deities…but then…I don’t like to name the Divine as it tends to limit it. God and Goddess would pretty much suffice it for me or the All or the Force (sorry Star Wars, that term was around long before you were!)…so I suppose if deity was a relationship category on facebook..it would say..”Its complicated.” Hee hee :)I am a certified Tree Hugger and proud of it! I am first and foremost a spiritual being who lives in an amazing Universe that I talk to daily! Second I am an Earthling as I live on the Earth in this incarnation..Spirit wise I don’t think I am from here originally…and get told that quite often LOL! Anything after that isn’t as important. If I had a motto to live by it would be.. “If you are not here to do good, then what are you here for???” Only you can answer that! I try to live my life as softly as I can upon this planet as I love Her greatly because She is beautiful and my one main wish has always been that all fellow Earthlings would feel the same. I try to love my fellow man as much as I can, when I can…but sometimes..its hard…but I try.. ūüôā I guess I’m getting ornery in my old age.I have been apart of Misfits since its inception and with the group for about 5 years before that! We are all works in progress and I love my spiritual family like my own family. We stumble and fall, we make mistakes, and at times piss each other off but we all have come to love one another and depend on each other and because of that I believe we are the bestest big group of dysfunctional¬†codependent spiritual beings there is! Hee hee

jonathan ¬†My name is Jonathan Jordan, also known as Hecate’ Owl.¬† I have walked many paths searching for Spiritual Enlightenment. I studied the Bible and the different paths to Christianity, at one point I even studied to be a preacher. Even though I tried very hard, I never found a place to fit in.¬†Then by ordained steps 1999, I met Raven & Willow. Together we were Blessed to meet Ted Morris, who first touched our hearts & souls with the Charge of Aradia, and later touched our minds with the Teachings of the Old Ways. Based upon those teachings Raven, Willow & myself formed Aradia’s MoonShadow. As time often does, things changed and we became¬†Misfit Witches and as the Goddess saw fit, She added to our number and we became not a group but a family, thus¬†becoming Misfit Sanctuary.¬†We have endured the storms of life and have remained firm. Currently¬†I can honestly say¬†I am happy and at peace with myself. I’m divorced and have two sons Nathan and Ryan. I am Proud to say I’m at home and I’m a Misfit.
