Key Contact: Gaelan ElfDragon
Spiritual Path: Eternal Harvest Wicca
Status: Established Group
Community Support: Legal Clergy... Teaching Available
Group Overview: We are a selective, initiatory teaching coven of the Eternal Harvest Tradition of Wicca, founded in 1990 by Douglas Helvie (Lord Gaelan Firestorm) . We are currently one of threeteaching covens within this Tradition. Our sister covens are the Coven of the Eternal Mysteries in Goldsboro, and the Coven of the Harvest Moon in Beaufort County.
We revere the Lord and the Lady by many Names: Herne, Robin, Puck, Pan, Cernunnos, the Dagda; Hertha, White Lady, Queen of Elfhome, the May Queen, Diana, Rhiannon, Brighid. Many of our covenors are personally dedicated to a Celtic-inspired path, and that influences our circle work as well, although we are by no means reconstructionists.
We have also evolved into Ancestral reverence, maintaining a covenstead shrine to our Ancestors of Land - the native peoples who walked this land before us; of Blood - our personal, familial ancestors, and Spirit - the Witches and Mages who have passed on before us in days of old; the people who inspired modern Witchcraft, such as Gerald Gardner and Doreen Valiente; and individual tradition members who have passed through the Veil.
Our tradition teaches complete balance between Goddess and God energies, and encourages its members to connect with the pantheon of their choice and to offer Them regular devotion. We are a robed tradition, believing that putting on your robe helps you to put on your "magickal personality." We observe all Esbats and Sabbats. We offer formal classes leading to first and second degrees and initiations to third degree. Membership is open to adults who are sure that they want to practice Wicca at a priesthood level in a formal, degree-based coven environment and who are able to commit to classes, circle, and homework. We provide instruction by in-person classes or by correspondence course; the same initiatory opportunities are available to both kinds of students. People who cannot commit to regular class meetings, but who would still like to work in a Tradition-based environment, are encouraged to check out the correspondence course.
We ask that interested people to attend the Eternal Harvest Church of Wicca for at least two meetings before deciding if they want to study with the Coven. That way they can get to know us, and we can get to know them.
Currently new in-person classes convene around Beltane and Samhain. An application can be downloaded from the website. Our mailing address is 2130 Hills Neck Road, Ernul, NC 28527.
