SONGS OF THE WOODE

CITY: New York City/Northern New Jersey

TRADITION OR SPIRITUAL PATH: Celtic Traditionalist Gwyddonaid

CONTACT NAME: Ciaran Woode

EMAIL: ciaran.woode@gmail.com

 

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.

QUEENS COVEN

Traditional Gardnerian coven in New York City. "Traditional" does not mean "conservative". We welcome people of all walks of life, but you must be openly accepting of LGBTQ, racial, and sexual equal rights.

 

We will not tolerate sexism, racism, ageism, nor all other bigotry of any form. We meet in Queens twice a month, but have coven members from all over the city. We train witches who are also priestesses and priests, and as such, we expect you to be able to meet the standards of what those titles imply.

 

Please note that attendance and training does not guarantee initiation, nor contacting us guarantee we will accept you as a pre-initate student. As much as you are trying to find the right fit for you, we are doing the same. After contacting via e-mail we will schedule an in person interview if we are currently accepting students.

 

We look forward to welcoming you back.
