NORTHERN NEW JERSEY
SONGS OF THE WOODE
CITY: New York City/Northern New Jersey
TRADITION OR SPIRITUAL PATH: Celtic Traditionalist Gwyddonaid
CONTACT NAME: Asherah Woode
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 second source is the Book of Shadows and other teachings of the Welsh Rite Traditionalist Gwyddonaid (WRTG), as founded by Lord Gwion.
Our coven is about self-transformation through a relationship with nature following the cycles of the Moon and honoring the Goddess and God at the Sabbats. We celebrate our connection to the Gods and nature with teachings of the Celtic Traditional Gwyddonaid and lessons of nature lore. Most of all initiates become part of our coven family. Practicing in an environment of love and trust is very important to us. Our mythological pantheon is derived from Celtic and Welsh folklore.
Songs of the Woode Coven has an active Outer Court which is open to sincere seekers. We do not discriminate based on race, sexual orientation, or gender identity. You must be at least 18 years of age to apply.
HANDS OF CHANGE

We are a well-established coven, having announced our formation in early Fall 1997. In 2000, HOC became a Church with all rights and privileges afforded by the government. Our open circles are open to all respectful seekers. They are “teaching circles,” where we explain the magic we are creating.
Besides open circles, workshops and invitation-only sabbats, coven members meet regularly for social and spiritual reasons. We are working on empowerment, healing, and growth, not on maintaining hierarchies.
PORTAL OF THE PORCUPINE
TRADITION OR SPIRITUAL PATH: Eclectic Pagan/Serendipitous Wiccan
CONTACT NAME: Sue Wolfsong
FACEBOOK: Sue Wolfsong
We're a very loosely formed group without an official membership roster. More of a covenstead than an actual coven, the "Portal of the Porcupine" hosts open sabbats throughout the year and circles on request when the 'moon is full and sincere practitioners desire to gather for magikal & celebratory purposes'. The space is also available on request for small groups to join in for rituals.
Family friendly and embracing all ages and experiences, our events are comfortable for seekers from all paths. They are spiritual, but undogmatic & open to free-thinking people--generally informal where participants may have input during rituals if they're so moved.
Because this place is also a residence, the exact location of our gatherings is not posted on public lists. If you have any questions or would like to be included in our rituals and celebrations, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and you'll be put on the email list.
