Group Overview: Merry Meet!

The Songs of the Woode is a small coven dedicated to teaching the ways of The Celtic Traditionalist Gwyddonaid. It is lead by High Priestess Lady Asherah and her High Priest Ciaran. We are a Family Tradition that follows the core teachings of Lady Gwen. Below is a short history of our tradition:

The Celtic Traditionalist Gwyddonaid (CTG) is a tradition which stems from the hereditary family lore of Lady Gwen (Gwynne) Thompson (1928-1986) and subsequent research and writings of Edmund M. Buczynski (Lord Gwydion) (1947-1989) , founder of the Brooklyn Heights Coven with Lady Vivienne. The Celtic Traditionalist Gwyddonaid is based upon two textual sources. The first source is the Book of Shadows and other teachings of the New York Welsh Traditionalist Gwyddonaid (NYWTG or "Welsh Tradition") , as founded by Lord Gwydion.

The Welsh Tradition was not and is not acknowledged as a member of the New England Covens of Traditionalist Witches (NECTW) family of traditions. The essential form or outline of the CTG Book of Shadows is that which derived from the reorganization of the Welsh Tradition materials by Lord Taliesin. By 1986, Taliesin had, with the help of Welsh Tradition Elders in the New York City area, reorganized the Welsh Tradition book into its current, widely disseminated form. As is traditional, no materials were removed from the book as received by Taliesin; rather, an attempt was made to logically organize the material to better suit both teacher and student.

The second source is the Book of Shadows and other teachings of the Welsh Rite Traditionalist Gwyddonaid (WRTG) , as founded by Lord Gwion. Lord Gwion commingled the Welsh Tradition materials (as received from both Lady Vivienne and Taliesin) and the NECTW materials, the latter which were made made available to him susbequent to his initiation and elevation in that line. This commingling led to the founding of the WRTG. The WRTG line is accepted by the NECTW family of Traditions.

These two sources, and our beloved ancestors of the blood, Lady Gwen and Lord Gwydion, are the cherished life's blood of the CTG, for it is by the Goddess' and God's hands we are guided and continue to thrive. Guided by the Gods, we have brought the bloodlines fully together. We vow to ever reveal the mysteries, but we also remember that those who cannot put the Gods before their own prejudices are but the onceborn masquerading as the wise. Learn and teach of true love and compassion and laughter; learn and teach too of darkness and death and rebirth, for it is only through this balance that we may serve the path of light truly.

Now that you had a short history lesson, here is more about us!
We celebrate our connection to the Gods and nature with lessons of the Celtic Traditional Gwyddonaid and lessons of nature lore. Most of all, initiates become part of our coven family. Practicing in an environment of love and trust is very important to us. Our mythological pantheon is derived from Celtic and Welsh folklore, specifically the Mabinogion .

Our outer court is held once a month, around the New moon. We offer serious training to those who would like to learn a traditional path with a possibility of receiving initiation into our coven. Experienced Craft students are preferred however brand new seekers are always welcome. We do not discriminate based on race, sexual orientation or gender. You must be at least 18 years of age to apply. If interested please email us at We looked forward to hearing form you

Disclaimer: We respectfully decline any association with the NECTW or any of it’s branches or greater family tree.

Blessed Be,

High Priest
Celtic Traditionalist Gwyddonaid.
