Fundamental to our practice is keeping the magic and traditions alive within the craft. However, self development , growth and pushing boundaries is a key focus for our group members. There will be homework.

MORETON-IN-MARSH
THE COTSWOLD COVEN

CITY: Moreton-in-Marsh/ Glastonbury

TRADITION OR SPIRITUAL PATH: Traditional Witchcraft

CONTACT NAME: Veronika

WEBSITE: THE COTSWOLD COVEN

UPDATED: 11/22/2020

Our coven was formed back in the early 1960’s by a group of dedicated folklore enthusiasts with a particular interest in the witchcraft of the Cotswolds. Gerald Gardner’s books on Wicca inspired them to use some of the Wiccan practices outlined by Gardner as a platform upon which to place local Traditional Witchcraft practices.

 

We are based in the Cotswolds and honour the local spirits and the sacred places of which there are many, some well known and others less so. Our Tradition venerates both God and Goddess equally, however we do not demand that our members adhere to specific forms of God and Goddess, but leave this to the individual.

 

We believe that witchcraft should be experiential, ‘armchair witchcraft’ is not for us. We try to hold outdoor Esbat and Sabbat rituals as much as possible – weather permitting – and in doing so, connect with the Gods, the spirits, the land and our ancient ancestors.

 

We enjoy group work, but also encourage our members to practice alone and share their experiences with us. We are a close and friendly coven and welcome sincere seekers whether experienced or complete beginners. We believe in mutual respect, loyalty, openness and honesty.

 

No payments or hidden payments are required, teaching and membership is free.
