Merry Meet! We are a diverse Eclectic Wiccan Teaching Coven. We do not discriminate based on race, gender, or sexual orientation. Sacred Rose is one coven/circle/hive in a family of covens. In our tradition, Circle, Hive and Coven are used synonymously as they are led by a High Priest and/or Priestess. We celebrate the monthly Esbats with our individual circles, and the eight Sabbats of the year with the family. The family is the total of all members of each coven.. We primarily meet in person, in Southern Maryland. For these reasons, we screen our applicants as follows:
Someone interested in our coven is considered a 'Seeker.' Once you reach out to us, an Elder will respond with further information. That Elder will be your ‘Sponsor’ until you choose a circle and/or Teacher/Guide. An Elder in our tradition, is someone who has been initiated and elevated to at least First-Degree Priest.
You will be given a list of questions and a small assignment. If our goals are in alignment, you will be invited to attend an event. After you have attended several events (rituals, workshops, etc.), you may choose a High Priest or Priestess (HPs) and Circle You may choose a Teacher/Guide/Mentor from our Council of Elders who you will establish a bond with and learn from going forward. It may or may not be your HPs depending on the rules set forth by the HPs of the circle you’ve chosen. We have a degree system and our tradition states that you are elevated to the next degree, by way of your chosen Teacher, in order, beginning with Seeker. The guide and teacher you, the Seeker have chosen, will determine your readiness for your passage to the next level. Blessings in Between!
