TRADITION OR SPIRITUAL PATH: Traditional Arte "Willow Path"
CONTACT NAME: Kerry Wisner
Our's is a system of the Arte drawn from the rich traditions and magical practices of rural populations reaching back through history. Labeled as Witchcraft the reality is that these form a shamanic spiritual wisdom that continues to be practiced today. Drawn from personal teachings passed on through families, individual teachers, rare magical texts written by 'cunning folk' and Witches from the pre-industrial era, as well as certain Hermetic disciplines, we work with a system of practical magical techniques long known as "The Willow Path".

PATHWAY OF THE MOON
TRADITION OR SPIRITUAL PATH: Celtic Traditionalist Gwyddonaid
CONTACT NAME: Carol Cafarella McPhail
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, Lord 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 Lord 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 Lord Taliesin) and the NECTW materials, the latter which were made available to him subject 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 God's 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 once-born 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.
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 serious intentions of learning this Tradition. Basic knowledge of the craft is a plus.
