The Sequel to Cora Anderson's Fifty Years in the Feri Tradition

The Heart of the Initiate: Feri Lessons

Author: Victor and Cora Anderson

Publisher: Harpy Books

Category: Feri Tradition Witchcraft   Level: Intermediate

"We believe that the Craft is a very good thing. It's a solid foundation if anyone gets the right teachings and they do the right thing."--Cora Anderson, from _The Heart of the Initiate_

"How the heart of the initiate thrills when the antique mysteries are written of. She or he recognizes the same great truth expressing itself in many forms, yet as one thing."--Victor H. Anderson, from _The Heart of the Initiate_

Featuring rare teachings from Victor and Cora Anderson on the Feri Tradition of Witchcraft, this compact and unique resource covers Feri initiation, sexual ethics, the Guardians, Deities, and much more. Picking up where _Fifty Years in the Feri Tradition_ left off, this new volume includes commentaries, letters to students, and extraordinary interview excerpts. _The Heart of the Initiate_ reveals profound insights into the Goddess, rites, symbols, and the mysteries of the Craft.

"An inspired poet, he was a brilliant creator of myth and liturgy. He was allied spiritually with all the indigenous traditions of the planet; a true shaman."
--Starhawk, author of The Spiral Dance

"Victor Anderson, the most important exponent of the Feri/Faery Faith in America, is also the person responsible for bringing it to this country. Victor has been a teacher and friend to some of the most influential personalities in the Craft today...

"The name of Victor Anderson is mentioned with a great deal of reverence, as he is one of the few direct descendents of this ancient faith. He is a keeper of the flame."
--Ellen Evert Hopman, Being a Pagan (with Lawrence Bond)

"Victor wrote beautifully poetic rituals for the Faerie Tradition. Over the years, a number of remarkable people were trained by Victor... The influence of the shamanic tradition now called 'Feri' has been enormous."
--Oberon Zell-Ravenheart, Grimoire for the Apprentice Wizard

"Victor may be even more influential in the Witch and Pagan movement than Gerald Gardner in the long run. He wrote very little, but his students have burst upon the scene over and over with the most creative and forceful visions of any set of trainees I have ever seen. Either more creative, dynamic and intelligent people were attracted to him, or he truly was exceptional."
--Penny J. Novack, author of "A Gift for Living"

Author's Notes: Victor H. Anderson is the acclaimed author of "Thorns of the Blood Rose"; "Lilith's Garden"; and coauthor, with Cora Anderson, of "Etheric Anatomy: The Three Selves and Astral Travel." He was a featured contributor to "Witch Eye, " "Green Egg, " and "Nemeton" magazines. In 1975 he won the Clover International Poetry Competition Award.

Anderson was the Grand Master and (with his wife, Cora) the foremost teacher of the Feri (Faery) Tradition. An accident during childhood left Anderson almost completely blind. He was a brilliant linguist and spoke numerous languages, including Spanish, Hawaiian, Creole, and Gaelic. An extraordinary shaman and priest, he was also one of the last Kahuna. He held ministerial credentials from the Covenant of the Goddess.

Cora Anderson is the author of "Fifty Years in the Feri Tradition"; "Kitchen Witch: A Memoir"; and "In Mari's Bower: A Biography of Victor H. Anderson." Her articles were featured in "Witch Eye" and "Circle" magazines, and her recipes were published in "Women's Circle." A Feri Grand Master, Cora helped train some of the most influential voices in neo-Paganism. Her straightforward approach to the Craft earned her the respect and admiration of many around the world. She received a two-year diploma in children's education from Jacksonville State Teacher's College in Alabama. She also held a certificate in autobiographical writing from Chabot College in Hayward, California. She held a ministerial certificate from the Covenant of the Goddess.
