The Shenandoah Stone Circle is a small extended-family stream of traditional Anglo-American folk wisdom and the cunning arts. It was established as a current in its own name by Richard and his wife Cynthia Turrentine-Hanson, better known in these parts as "lf".
The Shenandoah Stone Circle is a heathen animist Mystery tradition, drawing it's core praxis largely from the lore and methods of the shamanic/ecstatic Northern European and English hedge riders of old, coupled with the natural healing arts of the village witch-doctor and herb-wife. The emphasis is on the Hidden Arts worked as a practical matter without the ceremonial trappings of rote religion. Apprentices are taught to work both sides of the hedge, as sorcerers and healers, necromancers and diviners.
The Shenandoah Stone Circle holds to the concept that witches, like any other mystical practitioners, are born with certain natural abilities that only need to be unlocked and nurtured to be fully empowered.
Being an oral tradition, The Shenandoah Stone Circle has no Books of Shadows or grimoires. Instead, members are expected to be Keepers of the wisdom, and teachers to others so that the Virtue and knowledge will not be lost. The Shenandoah Stone Circle is also involved in establishing a sacred land conservancy for the use of the entire extended family.
One will recognize some things as common to many of the better-known streams of traditional crafting, but The Shenandoah Stone Circle has a lore and methodology all it's own. The Shenandoah Stone Circle is always careful to point out that it is not in any way derived from or beholden to any other stream of practice, except where wisdom is graciously shared through teaching, collaboration, or correspondence. Similarities will always exist, because history is common to all and ultimate Truth is universal. The Circle respectfully holds its peer groups in the highest regard, while keeping its sui generis Virtue as its own.
