Group Overview: Founded by three great Witches: of water..of earth..and of fire, Rysynysys (RIZ-uh-NICE-sis) is today a small Wiccan temple in Pittsfield which seeks to perfect a unique trefoil tradition composed of Hereditary, Egyptian and Alexandrian Witchcraft practices. The coven was born in 2002, and we are dedicated to the Great Queen of Nature, Lady Isis.
Membership in this Temple follows a four degree system where the 4th degree is an extension of the traditional 3rd degree Alexandrian. Candidates must be 18+ years of age. Esbats and sabbats are met with circle regularly, and several Goddesses and Gods are favored amongst others. We recognize 13 sabbats, 13 esbats, and 13 pasdats (new moons) as comprising the magical year. We adhere to the Law of Three, the Wiccan Rede, and the Law of Isis, and we also teach the implications and applications of the Hermetic Laws. We trace our magical lineage to a peculiar form of Alexandrian Witchcraft practised in Central Berkshire County.
We regard Wicca as a Multiethnic Shamanic Religious Tradition. Our particular paradigm for Magical, Spiritual and Religious Training (The IsisMethod) is long, literate, demonstrative, rigorous and rewarding, and prepares initiates to become well-educated, well-rounded, wise and powerful Reverend-Witches. All coveners are considered to be "Students in the Temple of the Gods", and are enrolled into the EarthGate School, where progress and training is monitored and honed.
The development of psychic force and power is established and delineated using scientific protocols, where applicable, and is tempered with the force of love. On a regular basis, various methods of spell casting, prayer and philosophical discourse are researched, tested and presented by members of the coven, to the coven. We are traditonal in that we feel certain core aspects of The Craft should never be changed or discarded, and eclectic wherein we feel that The Craft must change its mode of delivery to fit [a society's needs] in the present time. Physical fitness and personal hygiene in our tradition are inextractible keys in the proper growth of psychic power and contact with the Gods, and each member is encouraged to exercise daily.
The Inner and Outer Courts of Rysynysys are led by High Priestess Essti (3*) , and by High Priest Tish (3*) .
Our Temple values and supports diversity of body, mind and soul, and enjoys a gentle, familial coming together when we gather to worship and play. We identify as feminist, we support Straight/LGBTQ lifestyles. We speak candidly; we demand truth. Our Goal is to educate, empower and initiate those who are willing and strong enough- loving enough -to be The avatars of our Goddess today. This is a coven of trust, and a family of peace.
The Coven is open to accepting new initiates. We must be clear: membership in this group is neither trivial, nor subject to conventional social-group norms, we are a sacred college of Priestesses and Priests. Our course of study and practice demands that coveners schedule very clearly their work, home and other responsibilities- We meet 1-4 times per month and a list of annular coven meeting dates is given to each covener months ahead of effective time. Coveners must make sure their personal responsibilities do not conflict with coven moots and vice versa..this is extremely important, and it is only respectful. However with advanced notice, in most cases, meeting dates can easily be changed. We offer: Our expertise, time, facilities, community relations, our resources and our energy...we ask that YOU offer: your Loyalty to Our Hive, and to The Wiccan Ethics and Teachings; to respect your teachers and the time and magic they donate to YOU, the child or elder of promise..We ask that you respect first, the greatness and the gravity of the Craft Teachings as is taught in the Law of Perfect Love and Perfect Trust, and second, that you respect and seek to nurture, above all, the community into which we hope you will soon enter. We seek individuals of any ethnicity, gender, sex, age, and socio-economy, of any Indigenous, Pagan or Earth-Based religion/spiritual Path. We are a Pagan religious association searching for members who would like to learn, and become, their magical career. Academically-minded students are preferred, though it is best if all types of minds apply. Serious inquiries please send detailed email about your prior experience and magical literature background, your future aspirations, your present questions and your talents. PLEASE SEND email with subject line reading "RYSYNYSYS 3X3X3".
May the Goddess be Borne in every Heart today.
Blessed Be Well
In perfect Love and perfect Trust
