Initiatory Wicca
Riverwood Coven - Traditional Gardnerian Wica

Group Details

Group Name: Riverwood Coven

Location: Frederick, Maryland (MD)

Tradition/Spirtual Path: Traditional Gardnerian Wica

Contact Info

Contact: Aeowyn & Hermes

Group Description:

Riverwood Coven is a Traditional Gardnerian coven located in Frederick, MD, open to serious seekers of all skill levels considering initiation into Gardnerian Craft and looking to join a working coven.

Traditional Gardnerian Wica is an initiatory path of Gardnerian Wicca, focused on preserving and practicing the tradition as received by Gerald Gardner.  Our particular practice of Gardnerian Wicca draws from both Long Island Line and Sheffield Line knowledge.  Characteristics of Traditional Gardnerian Wica that differentiate it from other forms of Gardnerian, BTW or General Wicca include:

 

  1. A focus on the development of the self

  2. A cultivation of Awareness

  3. An orientation towards responsibility in both coven and community dynamics, and

  4. The stewardship and preservation of the Gardnerian Mysteries. 

 

Traditional Gardnerian Wica is a good path for individuals looking for original source material and quality scholarship related to Gardnerian practice, for couples looking to explore their sacredness through the God and Goddess, and for those seeking a true experience of Gardnerian Craft.

Joining Riverwood Coven is possible, but not easy.  We are discerning in our choice of candidates and require that the seeker be serious about their admission and dedication to the Craft.  Traditional Gardnerian Wica is not for the meek, or the vain, or those who wish to continue to see the world through the dichotomy of Christian ideals.  We are unabashedly Pagan, and will teach you to see life through a Pagan world-view.

If you are interested in learning more about Traditional Gardnerian Wica, or would like to discuss joining or training with Riverwood Coven, please contact us at riverwoodgrove@gmail.com.

Working with us for at least a year and a day, you may be considered for, upon request, initiation into our coven. This may or may not require additional time or work, depending on the dedication you have shown in our training group and your aptitude for the material we present.  The training is not a formal outer court or grove model, but rather an ongoing monthly offering which you may or may not choose to continue.  From serious students, we would expect to see consistent effort and attendance, before considering them for admittance to our coven or for further training.
