Group Overview: This is an additional listing!
[TSBW is a restricted Coven but we do accept new people from time to time. You need only apply. We are drug-free and relatively dry. We are an Adult AND Family group - associate and full members range from 10 (a member's child) to 69 with the average age of 36!]
We are an eclectic, hierarchical and initiatory Coven and we are a teaching [and healing] Coven. We are descendant from the oldest continuously active Wiccan Coven in Fresno County, The Temple of St. Brigid's Moon Coven. Our tradition is Celtic Woodland which combines Celtic, Green and parts of Gardnarian/Alexandrian traditions with Kitchen Witchery and some aspects of Druidic beliefs. Our patron Goddess is Brigid or St. Brigid [of Kildare] and our patron God is the Green Man. We are a relatively new Coven and are working toward developing community service projects.
Coven Membership is NOT required for *student training*, provided by St. Brigid's Academy and Seminary, though there will be Coven exposure through all Degrees. Potential new students / members are well screened for suitability before acceptance is granted. While we would love to grant the requests of the many nice, sincere people who have approached us, it is just not possible due to a number of reasons (member limits, mental state, antisocial personality, our student load, etc.) . When we do accept those who are considered compatible, they must be at least 18 years old (16 with notarized, written parental permission or 13 if parents are Coven members) . They must be of sound mind, of reasonably stable health and free of substance dependencies. Orientation, disability or gender are never a limitation as long as the member can abide by our rules (applies to all members) .
In regards to new initiates beyond First Degree or an equivalent, Coven membership is generally required. We do not normally actively recruit new members. It is up to the seeker who walks the Path to find us and request membership as well as initiation. We are very happy with our current family but will consider and assist all seekers. We will usually meet with and get to know a potential member socially for a time before deciding if we feel they would be a good match for our Coven. Decisions are made by the Coven Executive Council (Elders and Leading Clergy) and are final.
When someone does not "feel right" for membership in our Coven, we will attempt to direct them to other Covens or study groups if possible. Please feel free to contact us by e-mail or arrange a meeting with us in a public place for coffee and conversation.
While we do not offer 'Open Circles' officially, we will allow sincere individuals to join us at ritual. They must go through our interview process first, however.
*CAUTION*: In contacting people for training, please be smart about how you do so and follow what your instincts tell you. This even includes contacting us!!
