About CMA

Our Mission

The Council of the Magickal Arts, Inc. is a spiritual and civic organization and multi-cultural foundation that is committed to promoting spirituality based on spiritual, nature-centered, magickal beliefs and practices. 

Through multiple fundraising and community building endeavors, CMA supports, organizes, and hosts a variety of religious and educational programs as well as gatherings for members and interested public to celebrate the holidays of Beltane, Samhain, and other religious holidays. 

CMA offers organization opportunities to increase a sustainable community by promoting, educating, researching, and supporting green technologies. We promote and educate members and the community at large in environmentally friendly construction and life practices.

Our Principles

Inclusiveness
As a member of CMA I recognize that each individual comes into the divine in their own way. I will strive to include every member of CMA and honor their person and their background. I will not prohibit or discourage others from participation in CMA on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, national origin (ancestry), religious affiliation, sexual orientation, caste, sex, gender, gender identity and expression, relationship status, military status, age, immigration status, or serious disease or disability.

Tolerance
As a member or guest of CMA I accept that there are many ways one can integrate religious practices into their daily lives and lifelong beliefs and I will promote the idea of tolerance at all times. I understand that CMA as a corporation will not advocate one path over another; nor disparage others for their beliefs; and I will not disparage others for their beliefs.

Confidentiality
As a member of CMA I acknowledge the right of each individual to maintain their own privacy as they see fit. I will, within the limits of the law, protect the confidentiality of others at all times. I will not reveal, share or discuss the personal information or image of others without their express consent.
Neither member identities nor personal information will be revealed without the member's express permission.

Liberty
As a member of CMA I will support each individual’s inherent freedoms, including belief, thought, or action. Further I will support a minimally restrictive environment to protect each person’s liberties, consistent with each person’s safety and privacy.

Stewardship
As a member of CMA I will be a responsible warden of the resources at my disposal. I strive to protect, defend, and use responsibly what has been given to me. I will practice good stewardship of Spirit Haven, my resources, my fellow persons, and my planet.

Accountability
As a member of CMA I will conduct myself with integrity at all times. I accept that personal responsibility and accountability for my words, actions and magicks is the best way to promote a healthy environment for all members of CMA to thrive in a positive light. I will not participate in, or encourage violence, slander or libel of any sort.

Governance

CMA is governed by a member elected Board of Directors, who work on an entirely volunteer basis (as do all of our staff). If you're curious about the structure of our organization, feel free to check out our Organization Chart.

Each member of CMA that is over the age of 18 is eligible to vote in electing our Board of Directors and on Bylaw and Policy changes. The Board Candidates are voted on in the time leading up to our Great Works meetings.


Great Works are CMA's business meetings, which are held on the Sunday of our Samhain + Beltane Festivals (weather permitting). Bylaw + Policy votes are also conducted at Great Works, as is other CMA business that needs to be addressed. If a member is unable to be present for Great Works, they are able to assign their proxy to another member.

Only CMA Members are able to access the Voting area, Festival Registration, and various Files + Forms, so if you're not finding what you're looking for, try logging into your membership account!
