Temple of the Old Ways
Age Range/Type: Adult
Located in: Auckland, New Zealand
Key Contact: Cian or Ceallaigh
Spiritual Path: Gardnerian Wicca & Trad. Craft
Status: Established Group
Community Support: Legal Clergy... Teaching Available
Group Overview: THE TEMPLE OF THE OLD WAYS consists of both an Outer Court study group and an inner initiates-only Coven. We offer training that may 'possibly' lead to initiation into Gardnerian Wicca to sincere and proper persons.
LOCATIONS: Whilst being based in Auckland we have trusted Gardnerian & Alexandrian associates throughout the world. If we can help seekers connect to genuine teachers then we will attempt to do so.
THE COVEN is an authentic lineaged initiatory group practicing and teaching the mysteries of Gardnerian Wica and Alexandrian Wicca, with some influence from Sussex traditional Witchcraft. The teachings, rituals and lore from these three sources formulate much of the groups work and the basis of our training.
OUR APPROACH: The modes of training and ritual that you can expect if accepted for initiation will be principally Gardnerian Wica with secondary influences from Alexandrian Wicca and Traditional Witchcraft. While we honour the Old Ways we seek to explore the practical and experiential aspects of magic within our ceremonies and our lives - with a special emphasis on connecting to energies of the land in which we live (Aotearoa) .
THE OUTER COURT TRAINING GROUP meets fortnightly for classes, training and supervision. The Coven meet monthly for full moon Esbats, and 8 times a year for the Sabbats. The Lesser Sabbats (Solstices & Equinoxes) may be attended by Neophytes who have completed a dedication ceremony and a certain period of training. Major Sabbats and Full moon rites are restricted to initiated (Gardnerian or Alexandrian) witches only.
APPLICATIONS: The coven may consider applications for new members. There is a selection process and membership is not a right, but a privilege and a commitment that entails hard work, commitment and sincerity. We are however open to assisting seekers and referring or advising them if we are able.
May the Old Ones bless you as you walk the Spiral Path
