Blacktree Coven

Age Range/Type: Adult
Located in: Clementon, New Jersey
Key Contact: Chris Orapello

Spiritual Path: Traditional Witchcraft
Status: Established Group
Community Support: Teaching Available

Group Overview: Blacktree Coven is a regionally based, non-Wiccan, initiatory tradition of sabbatic witchcraft. We combine backwoods and bayou folk magick, western esoteric ritual styling, and other influences into a unique blend of Traditional Witchcraft which grows from the genius loci roots of the (in) famous New Jersey Pine Barrens.

What we do.

We offer a well rounded formal education in the diverse arts of witchcraft.
We honor and venerate the genius loci and the ancestors.
We observe the full and dark moons by a calendar of our own design and naming.
We meet for magick, camaraderie, and personal exploration.
We work clothed.
We do a lot of reading.
We offer experience in witchcraft within a safe working environment of like minds and friends.

What we DO NOT do.

We DO NOT follow the common Eight-Spoke Wheel of the Year.
We DO NOT consider the tradition to be a religion in an of itself.
We DO NOT view ourselves as a fertility cult.
We DO NOT cast circles or call quarters.
We DO NOT utilize an inner/outer court coven structure.
We DO NOT view ourselves as being Priests or Priestesses.
We DO NOT honor, worship, or venerate any deities.
We DO NOT view witchcraft as being a community faith tradition.
We DO NOT think witchcraft is a religion.

Who or what are our influences?

In no particular order, we are influenced by the work and writings of Robert Cochrane, Nigel Pennick, Nigel Jackson, Peter J. Carroll, Peter Grey, Phil Hine, Peter Paddon, Gemma Gary, Sarah Anne Lawless, Aleister Crowley, Doreen Valiente, Joe Wilson, Paul Huson, Isobel Gowdie, Andrew Chumbley, Kenneth Grant, and others along with witchcraft history, the grimoire tradition, folklore, cunning folk practices, and some western esotericism.

What are our goals and expectations?

To learn, educate, and offer a unique and regional approach to the practice of witchcraft.
We DO NOT anticipate ever hosting open public rituals.
We may offer a short public class series on Traditional Witchcraft in the future.
Last but not least, the future is bright so one can never tell what’s in store!
