The National Committee

All members of the committee, subcommittees and project organisers are volunteers who donate their time, skills, and energy to further the mission of the association and to try and make our community better for all of us.

David Garland
President, Media & Interfaith Officer
David is the founder of PAN Inc. He started the public full moon circles in Sydney's Seven Hills that have run continuously since 1997. Although raised a Roman Catholic and an altar boy at the Church until age 14, he found that, after a discussion with the priest about graven images and idol worship, this was not the place for him.

His Italian Grandmother, who read playing cards, first sparked his interest in Tarot and things magickal. David has been practising earth-based magick since 1986, as a healer, Tarot reader, and psychic, and leading to his formal Gardnerian Wiccan training.

David has been President of PAN since he founded it in 1997.
Pete Christie
Vice President & Diversity Officer
Learning and practicing Sharmanistic styles of healing and energy workings as a child, Pete has been involved in magic, energy movement and healing most of his life. A touchstone of this path culminated in 2011 with his initiation as a Reiki Grand Master (Master Usui Reiki, Master Karuna Reiki, Master Tibetan Reiki) while living in Vashisht, a small village in the Indian Himalayas.

Pete has conducted many public and private rituals with Ostarian Grove and The Circle Of The Cross Roads and his private practices include Family Vodu, Chaos Majick, and Sharmanistic works.

Pete holds a B.A. - Psychology and PGDip Social Health (Psych).

Vincent Coles
Secretary
Vincent is a recent convert to Paganism after growing disgusted with the misogyny and hypocrisy he'd witnessed in the Catholic Church. His belief system can be best described as eclectic, but tends to worship the Nordic goddess Freya the most. Vincent is a strong believer in individual freedom and has respect for those of differing beliefs and hopes to aid others in achieving this.
Bec Hearne
Treasurer

Bec was born and raised in South-West Sydney. From the age of 16, Bec has been drawn to the Spiritual-based paths, Witchcraft and Paganism. Practicing her craft and path as a Solitary Pagan Witch for many years, although not tied to any tradition of Witchcraft, she has felt the pull and thirst for knowledge in Wicca, Celtic and Nordic Pagan paths due to her Celtic and Nordic Ancestry. Bec also has connected with Aboriginal Spirituality and identifies as a proud Wiradjuri woman.

Bec is currently working in the Funeral Industry. And provides Celebrant Services- for Funerals, Vow Renewals, Handfasting’s, Child Naming days and other special reason to create ceremonies.

Charlotte, or Charli for short, is an eclectic and somewhat eccentric Wiccan. They have been practising witchcraft since 2016. They were raised a Christian, however they never found their spiritual belonging in Christianity. From a young age Charli has found themselves attracted towards witchcraft. Charli has a keen interest in history (especially that of various pagan beliefs and cultures) and is somewhat of an activist for people with a disability and the LGBTQI community.
Mara Carter

Carole was well-respected in the Witchcraft community, having been herself initiated into the Alexandrian Wiccan tradition by Alex Sanders.

As an initiated Priestess, Mara later became a teacher for Carole’s Golden Zenith coven. With some 20 years experience Mara has gone on to run her own Alexandrian Wiccan coven.
