HEARTH OF THE WOODE

CITY: Bronxville

TRADITION OR SPIRITUAL PATH: Celtic Traditionalist Gwyddonaid

CONTACT NAME: Ciaran Woode and Aaliyah Woode

EMAIL: ciaran.woode@gmail.com

UPDATED: 4/18/2022

 

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.

Located in Westchester New York, the Hermetic Circle is a gathering of thinkers, magicians, poets, and artists, interested in exploring a shared praxis of remembering together. It is as this, as new-old friends, that we come together to explore the mysteries of remembering. The aim of our Hermetic Circle is to provide a safe space to explore the idea of absolute self, to remember and create an identity beyond self. This concept is explored through the idea that there is nothing to learn, only to remember. Awakening the memory through nostalgia and synchronicity, through the exploration of remote viewing, astral projection, the light body and ceremonial magic.
