Group Overview: Rowan Earth - Non Deity Path of life, with a direction of balance, moderation, honour, loyalty,

Rowan Earth . (a synopsis)

Founded in early 2000 by Rowan Wolf (Magickal Name) – English born and initiated in an branch of Gardnarian tradition in early 1988 in Kent, age of 19.

Eventually reached 3rd degree but always had a growing detachment from the deity side as time went on, whilst relishing nature and being more active around natural creations, broke off from the Gardnarian path in late 1990's to focus on the non deity based element of craft work and natural energy without any influence or limitations of deity worship.

Founded in 2000, The Rowan Earth path does not use deities or celestial beings, but uses the elements, wood and metal and reliant on the energies of nature, spirit of Will and the universal energy (creator) directly that makes all things.

Everything was/is created from an energy or manipulation of energies and it is this energy, whether active or dormant, that is the basis for utilisation, unlike traditional crafts using spiritual energies/ deities or some form of divine intervention often requiring apeasment in one form or another..

Some brief main points;

Male and female are equal in status with both needed for the wheel of life. The human on Earth is a vessel where the energy enters upon creation to form male or female, with influences from different elements and energies to form personality traits, ie; firey temper has more fire energy, a tranquil person has more water energy, stubborn or grounded person - earth , etc.

Rituals, chants and spells;

These are still used in this path, however not worshipping a deity{s} but directly using the energy that is available, via outer or inner senses, utilising either brand new formations, loosely based traditional ceremonial rituals with the deity reference removed. yet bringing in the direct energies of Fire, Water Earth, Wind, universal energy, natures creations, will, etc.

In many cases, the rituals are completely different and are adapted/ personalised for each task or doorway.

Only Five main Sabbats are celebrated, unlike the traditional 8 in Wicca, etc. All Sabbats are however non deity with focus on nature, the elements and energies intwined.
Mid-Spring (Beltane) , - Celebration of nature and the growing year along with all the flora, fauna and new life erupting upon the earth.
Midsummer- The life giving energy of the sun, nature and the creative energy of the universe,
Fall harvest- the celebration of the land and harvest, of those whom work the land and their bounty for the year,
Samhaim - celebration of the energy of those passed on and the ground laid or lessons they offered us.
Yule - a celebration of the family and the coming year. Thanks given to the experiences of this year, with plans being made for the new year.

The ways of Rowan Earth.

1) Do what thou will yet harm none with unjust intent.

2) Mark ye the three fold law, peace be sent for peace at home, yet balance be natures way.*

3) Protect that which is an innocent as forbidden harm be condemmed in upmost.**

4) Suffer ye a fool shall not, a betrayer cast aside. For forgiveness once is forgiveness spent, thou shall not suffer the same crossing once more, lest be tormented twice.

5) Liveth thee in balance and moderation with nature and nature’s energies therein.

6) Honour thy word, speak as it is and breaketh not a promise, for without honour, thou art a barren shell.

7) Thou shall not be forced against thy belief for the gain of another. For their actions are condemnable and low. ***

8) The vessel doth seek the path, the vessel doth choose the path, for none other made the first step, though others may show the way. Blame not on another for the decisions made, unless it is they whom endeth the journey.”

9) Thou shalt not desecrate or violate any sacred area.

10) To end ones journey as a grand and wise as a balanced oak, thou must nurture, educate and train oneself in many paths and open many doors, else be left but a withered sapling.

11) Creation’s vessels, thou art sacred and both male and female thou art equal. Honour thee and corrupteth not. ****

12) Taketh from nature only as thy need and seek to balance where possible.

13) Spread this craft as those may request, yet thou shalt not force thy way or view on another or gain a hand by threat, bribe or other low action.

14) An honest question, doth invite an honest answer. If thou art without said knowledge, show thy seeker another way,

* Universal balance in creation – Energyand Nature by themselves are neither good nor evil – they are impartial, and dispassionate, occasionally extreme in restoring order and decision. Infact, you cannot have the light without the dark, therefore, it stands tor eason you do what you can to remain good and just in this existence, howeverthere will at some juncture be those wishing you ill or trying their upmost to destroy your happiness. The Balance law within nature dictates a response isjustified in this case to restore the appropriate balance without being open tothreefold repercussions - (without advocating murder unless the life and deathfork arises, of course) . Thus, the universe and nature always strive for balance.

** The Innocent – a baby or child – untainted, unknowing, unprotected. Must be protected, nurtured, kept from harm until such time it grows to form its own journey with mature and wise decision. Forbidden harm is any non-balancing /nurturing, protecting action whether physical, emotional or ANY sexual activity to aninnocent. For this action ESPECIALLY the latter is to be condemned in the highest with retribution to match the action. The threefold law is negated when protecting an innocent.

Balancing action is standard corrective punishment or scolding (example; smacking the wrist if the innocentis about to put its hand in a fire or run near danger, etc) , in order to keep an innocent from harm to itself or others whilst learning in the early stages of the journey.

*** To condemn one for their beliefs when they harm none, is a direct contradiction of their own laws and tolerances of anothers' beliefs. Each vessel is entitled to their own path of free will, yet respect the rights and laws of another’s boundary as long as doing such is not purely for anothers gain. Two classic and alernate examples are;- being forced to adopt another religion under threat of death or persecution. The second is being forced to think differently just for political gain.

**** Both male and female are required in their own form for the natural eternal cycle and balance. Each vessel is filled as the great energy created, none to be treated as more important or higher in status than the other, or to be physically disfigured or dramatically altered to create something it is not. Obvious exceptions are to improve or restore function not caused by abusive self infliction - (excessive drug or alcohol abuse destroying the vessel from within, for example) - such as replacing a disfigured or severed limb to allow one to walk or lift correctly, mending eyesight to see and so on, are all welcomed.

'Tiers' in this path are;

Neophyte - Beginner no path, undecided

Seeker - Once the path chosen, first steps to become a 1st degree initiate (a year and a day) .

1st degree initiate

2nd Degree follower

3rd Degree priest

Elder*

* As Rowan founded this path and was not yet ordained as a High Priest when he was Gardnerian, he does not feel it is right to call himself a High Priest, as he no longer follows the path, even though others have stated otherwise, being this is his own founded path, so classes Elder as the highest rank.
Ordained a minister by ULC hq, this is added to the rank (Rev. Elder, Rev Priest) ) in order to carry out hand fastings, or other ministarial ceremony.
Rowan Earth has its own handfasting ceremony without any deity referrence.
