We are a teaching coven with an emphasis on training Clergy. We offer a degree-based program for beginners as well as those with experience looking for formal training.

Our goal is to be a spiritual family, as well as a place to learn, grow, and challenge ourselves. We honor and encourage diversity among our members.
As a group, we expect openness, trust, and integrity from our members. We desire commitment of time and reliability. We also expect you to have a good life/work balance and be willing to do the deep, personal work that is required for true growth.
We honor both the Goddess and God, as well as Androgyny and non-gendered aspects of deity. We are LGBTQ+ inclusive and expect anyone who joins us to be LGBTQ+ friendly as well. CHW is an adult coven; our members must be at least 21 years old.
We use a private interview process to meet with you and get to know you, and to let you get to know us. If we think you will be compatible with us, and you think you would like to work with us, there is then a "trial" period of candidacy lasting a minimum of one year and one day. We look forward to hearing from you.
