Once the Coven has been established, it will operate mainly through the Long Island/Olwen Line of the Gardnerian Tradition of Witchcraft, but degrees and training are also available for Farrar Line Alexandrian, the New York Wica Tradition, and New York Welsh. The Minoan Brotherhood is potentially available for males through Temenos ta Theia, however there are two other active Groves in the area to which a person might be referred.
