Group Overview: Established May 10th 2017, the Coven of the 5 Points is an active working coven that is about the “actual” practice witchcraft. What this means is, we are about using magick to improve the lives of our members and the surrounding environment vs being “only” a place to socialize and stoke our egos. We do not discriminate. We accept both young and old, new to the craft and experienced—we ask only one thing, that you are serious about practicing magick and have a critical mind. All of our members practice meditation, visualization, energy work, and studies that takes up 30 minutes to an hour of their lives. This is done 4 to 6 days out of the week in the privacy of their own home by choice. Because we spend so much time and dedication to the Craft, we assume and expect you the seeker to be willing and able to do the same. Without such dedication our coven magick would be ineffective and meaningless.
In addition to “actually” studying and practicing magick, we are also concerned about the maturity level, balance of morals, courage, intellectual honesty, level of ego, and mental state of possible members, so out of a spirit of fairness, I will tell you what will get you rejected. First, you must be over the age of 18, and be emotionally mature. Simply put, we don't have time for child-like mentalities. As for morality, we are a coven based on a balance , in other words, we don't believe morality is cut and dry, therefore, we do what is right at the time, according to the situation. Having said this, we are about taking action, and are not afraid to confront darkness, so if you lack the courage to do that, then this is not the place for you. Another thing that will get you overlooked, is not having a critical mind, meaning, if you lack the ability to distinguish fantasy from reality, then you won't make it-I am taking about those people who think they have special powers they really don't. If someone claims that sort of thing, those claims get tested. You need to have a critical mind. Also, if your ego is SO huge, it hinders your ability to work with others, or causes you to want to become the coven dictator, then you are out-we don't adhere to titles and we operate as a collective of equals. As for mental state, we understand that people have problems, however, performing magick requires you to be in control of your mental faculties. This means you must have a good grasp on reality and be willing to transform both your life here in the physical world, as well as evolve spiritually. What I am talking about here are people that come with a sh*t storm of problems; such problems being the result of the choices which they are unwilling to to change along with the an inability to recognize those problems. A member of this coven, must be willing to examine their life, face their problems and change for the better. If you are comfortable with your problems, then sorry, no progress can be made at this time and you cannot proceed. Unfortunately such people are usually not aware they fall into this category—if they were, would they have those problems in the first place? If any of this seems harsh, I’m sorry, but it would be irresponsible of us to teach those who are simply not ready.
2017 has been a year of profound accomplishment for us—we have finally found those with true talent, who are qualified to teach and lead others. Because we have decided to open membership up to the public, we feel the best way to be successful is to adopt a traditional coven structure—by doing this we will keep things moving in the right direction. This structure implements a total of 3 degrees, with a 0 degree for Seekers, and leadership positions called Elders. Each of these degrees and titles are explained below. Please note, each one of these degrees not only requires the member to learn about the craft, but to be proficient in it, and be able to demonstrate his or her skills—in other words, no imaginary powers. This is unlike any other coven that you may have been a part of, or perhaps that you will ever be a part of because we are only interested in what works. We pride ourselves on the fact that we have real skills to teach—we are not just puffing our chests.
0 degree (Seeker)
Anyone who inquires about the coven, and wishes to participate in open events such as lectures, celebrations, classes and circles.
1st degree (Initiate)
Someone who is under a year and a day contract. Although such a person is considered a coven member, that membership can be terminated if they break the contract. All initiates are taught Witchcraft 101.
2nd degree (Apprentice)
Someone who has become a permanent member of the coven by graduating their year and a day. Apprentices are typically assigned to an Adept or Elder to be trained in the higher magickal arts.
3rd degree (Adept)
Those who have completed their training as an apprentice by demonstrating great skill, and knowledge. Because of this great knowledge and skill, an Adept is qualified to train others, and participate in serious projects geared towards higher goals.
Adepts in our own rite, we are the original founders of the coven. We teach, manage projects, act as counselors to our members, perform administrative duties, and are ambassadors to media.
The Coven of the 5 Points, we holds to the traditional “year and a day” contract, which simply means, if we decide to take you on as a student, you are under our supervision for a period of a year and one day. During this period, we watch to see if any of those undesired traits manifest, and if they do, we ask you to go in peace. If that is something you cannot agree to, then we cannot teach you. If you survive a year and a day, then you will either be approached and asked to join or be required to spend a little more time shoring up any lack of knowledge or circumstances that may be effecting your ability to practice within the coven. It may sound harsh, but it is necessary. It is also worthy to note, unlike traditional covens, we do not hold any ranks or titles; we believe such things encourage overblown egos, and that respect should only be given when it is deserved. Past the year and a day period, we see you as a family member, therefore, we openly share all our knowledge freely and without any filters, and we are proud to say that it is that bond that makes us so effective.
An important thing to realize about this coven is that we are about action, and are only interested in using what works. For this reason, we study and test everything we practice, to see if it can actually produce what it claims. If it doesn't, we don't use it, and if it does we keep it. Not only this, be we also incorporate science, technology, psychology and illusion (magic vs magick) into our studies and practices. It is for this reason, we have no problem taking scared knowledge, rituals and spells and shredding them--nothing is so sacred that it should be accepted without first examining and testing it. If you just accept what you've read or been told, you often times end of practicing things of no value and wast your time--and sense our time here on Earth is so short, we had better use it constructively.
At this point, you may be asking where do we stand morally. Are we Black Witches or White Witches? Neither. We represent the middle path, meaning, we believe that the true path to ascension is a winding one that leads from light into shadow and back. We hold that true understanding comes from the knowledge that magick is neutral force that can be used for good or ill, and therefore, we choose to use this force to not only improve our lives, but to enhance the world in a positive way. We believe, one can become just as insane by exposing themselves to too much divine light, as they would if they were to totally embrace darkness and become a black Magickian. True evil is the result the imbalance or extremes. We use magick to protect the innocent, and to mindfully build reality as we see fit. At the same time, we have no desire to make pacts with vile spirits, although we may chose to subdue or destroy one.
Having said all this, I must give warning to those of you who wish to become a member. If you are afraid of things that go bump in the night because you fear that you might be sucked into the abyss, then this is probably not the coven for you. We are looking for brave folk. If you join us, you will most likely be confronted by these things and will at some point have to step into the shadows to deal with these dark forces.
