Brotherhood by the Bog

Brotherhood by the Bog is an annual men's spiritual and bonding experience that takes place in the spring at First Landing State Park in Virginia Beach. The focus is primarily Pagan though all respectful seekers are welcome. We welcome men of all sexual orientations and backgrounds.

This year's theme includes:

Finding and connecting with your tribe.
Rediscovering the magick within.
Achieving the balance between your inner adult and your inner child.
