ARLINGTON

 

PHOENIX SONG

CITY: Arlington

TRADITION OR SPIRITUAL PATH: Initiatory religious witchcraft

CONTACT NAME: Jenett

EMAIL: phoenixsong@gleewood.org

WEBSITE: PHOENIX SONG

 

Phoenix Song is a small coven in the Omphalos-Tri-Cellan tradition established in Minnesota in the late 1990s. After several moves, Jenett (the High Priestess) has ended up back in the Boston area, where she grew up.

 

We focus on:

  • Work with and service of our Gods (both communal and personal) in polytheistic practice.

  • Patterns and cycles that lead to understanding and self-transformation.

  • Music, rhythm, and movement in ritual and personal practice.

  • Development of ourselves as competent and well-rounded witches and priests/priestesses including a development of personal practice in daily life.

 

Our tradition has a three-degree initiatory system as well as tradition-specific practices and mysteries, but much of our practice is similar to common Wiccan practice - we work in a ritual circle, celebrate the Esbats and Sabbats, and so on.

 

We gather for ritual, for discussion, for music and other creative arts, for crafts, and for good food and drink. Our ritual work is often reflective and introspective (divination, guided meditation, and interaction with deity are common) but we also do magical work together at times.

 

We value ongoing connections and relationships, mature commitment to religious practice, clear communication, and a willingness to learn new things. We have an ethic of intentional simplicity and at looking at how we do things as well as why.

 

Jenett is also glad to connect and chat with people in the area looking for resources or additional information, and maintains an extensive website of additional information about religious witchcraft, Seeking, at http://gleewood.org/seeking .

MALDEN

 

CORON NADROEDD COVEN AND OUTER COURT

CITY: Malden

TRADITION OR SPIRITUAL PATH: Celtic Traditionalist Gwyddonaid

CONTACT NAME: Lady Faolan

EMAIL: Lindajc74@gmail.com

UPDATED: 10/28/2020

Bendith mae! Coron Nadroedd Coven is lead by Rev. High Priestess Lady Faolan who is a HPS in the CTG and Welsh Trad and her husband acting High Priest Luscian  3rd degree CTG).

We are proud to teach and carry on our Tradition to seekers on the celtic path. We are a non-discriminating coven of the Celtic Traditionalist Gwyddonaid. We are a Family tradition that follows the core teachings of Lady Gwen. The Celtic Traditionalist Gwyddonaid (CTG) is a tradition which stems from the hereditary family lore of Lady Gwen (Gwynne) Thompson (1928-1986) and subsequent research and writings of Edmund M. Buczynski (Lord Gwydion) (1947-1989), founder of the Brooklyn Heights Coven with Lady Vivienne.

 

The Celtic Traditionalist Gwyddonaid is based upon two textual sources. The first source is the Book of Shadows and other teachings of the New York Welsh Traditionalist Gwyddonaid (NYWTG or "Welsh Tradition") , as founded by Lord Gwydion. The Welsh Tradition was not and is not acknowledged as a member of the New England Covens of Traditionalist Witches (NECTW) family of traditions. The essential form or outline of the CTG Book of Shadows is that which derived from the reorganization of the Welsh Tradition materials by Lord Taliesin. By 1986, Taliesin had,with the help of Welsh Tradition Elders in the New York City area, reorganized the Welsh Tradition book into its current, widely disseminated form. As is traditional, no materials were removed from the book as received by Taliesin; rather, an attempt was made to logically organize the material to better suit both teacher and student. The second source is the Book of Shadows and other teachings of the Welsh Rite Traditionalist Gwyddonaid (WRTG) , as founded by Lord Gwion. Lord Gwion commingled the Welsh Tradition materials (as received from both Lady Vivienne and Taliesin) and the NECTW materials, the latter which were made made available to him susbequent to his initiation and elevation in that line. This commingling led to the founding of the WRTG. The WRTG line is accepted by the NECTW family of Traditions. These two sources, and our beloved ancestors of the blood, Lady Gwen and Lord Gwydion, are the cherished life's blood of the CTG, for it is by the Goddess' and Gods' hands we are guided and continue to thrive.

 

Guided by the Gods, we have brought the bloodlines fully together. We vow to ever reveal the mysteries, but we also remember that those who cannot put the Gods before their own prejudices are but the onceborn masquerading as the wise. Learn and teach of true love and compassion and laughter; learn and teach too of darkness and death and rebirth, for it is only through this balance that we may serve the path of light truly. Coron Nadroedd Coven formed our grove at Summer Solstice 2006 and are a fully functioning coven. Our mythology mainly stems from the Mabinogian and other welsh tales. We are a FAMILY and treat each other as such. We are accepting new students, with at least two years of Craft experience, basic knowledge, etc.. 

 

Sincere Seekers only.. Y gwyr yn erbyn y byd! Blessed Be!!
