Songs of the Woode - Celtic Traditionalist Gwyddonaid
Group Name: Songs of the Woode
Location: Northern New Jersey (NJ) based
Tradition/Spirtual Path: Celtic Traditionalist Gwyddonaid (Initiatory Wicca)
Contact Name: Artos and Luna
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 enviornment 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.
Grove of the Other Gods (ADF)
Group Name: Grove of the Other Gods
Location: New Brunswick, New Jersey (NJ)
Tradition/Spirtual Path: Druidry
Grove of the the Other Gods, ADF serves Druids and like-minded Pagans in the greater New York metropolitan area. We've held celebrations and rituals in New Brunswick, Jersey City, Manhattan, Morristown, and the Jersey Shore. We've also been involved in rituals and workshops at various Pagan festivals. We've been around sine Samhain 1990, when we performed our first ritual - in Liberty State Park under the skirts of the Goddess of Liberty Enlightening the World, as Green Man Grove - and we're members of Ár nDraiocht Féin (ADF), which is Gaelic for "Our Own Druidry." We are a group of experienced Pagans who believe that the best way to approach the Goddesses and Gods of an earth-centered religion is through practice and dedication and scholarship and fun.
Àr nDraiocht Féin is an international NeoPagan organization whose worship centers on Indo-European pantheons. The study program is based on guilds that are devoted to specific areas of interest. They have a clergy training, a magazine, and groves throughout North America and Europe. ADF is recognized as a non-profit religious organization, and they are also an honorary member of the British Council of Druids. To learn more about ADF, check out their website at www.adf.org.
