Group Overview: Merry Meet!
The Coven of the Black Thorn Raven is the Mother-Coven of Clan of the Black Thorn Raven. Our particular Clan has four individual covens here in Pennsylvania and also two individual covens located in North Carolina and connected with three Sister-covens that cross multiple traditional-lines.
Our Clan is one of the 29 chartered Clans in the Black Forest Clan and a member of the Sacred Order of the Black Forest, which is our legal religious/church name. Each particular Clan has a number of covens in which they are affiliated with.
Each Clan is led by a Clan Head, known as an “Elder” in other traditions and each coven is led by either a 2nd or 3rd degree High Priestess, High Priest or both.
Our Coven’s focus is to provide a broad-based, tolerant and loving spirituality which will enable each individual witch to find his/her own form of spiritual expression that suits them best. I hope that each student will truly connect with the divine in the way that speaks most clearly to them, and that they will use what they have learned to reach out the community, regardless of degree status.
A little about what our coven in particular does:
Three members of the High Priesthood lead and teach in our particular coven, as each member has their particular roles they serve in our temple to follow the Wiccan cycle, and also teach fellow Seekers of the Art.
Our coven participates together in all eight traditional Wiccan Sabbats. We also keep ALL Full Moon Esbats and New Moon Esbats of the Wheel of the Year, although because of frequency of Esbats; some are in person and some are performed on the Astral.
Our coven meets frequently for coven meetings in which teachings, spellcasting and other rituals are performed.
Along with Wicca, our coven also teaches Pennsylvania Dutch Pow-Wow magic along with Spiritism (including mediumship) in order to carry forth these old traditions into modern times.
Training in our coven is marked by advancement through Dedication, First Degree, Second Degree and Third Degree initiations into The Craft. Members of the Third Degree that have completed the clergy exam are eligible to become legally ordained clergy one year and a day after Third Degree Elevation so that adequate time is allowed for you to grow into a leadership role to be able to serve not just the Wiccan and Witchcraft community, but members of any faith. (We seek to reach out and work in cooperation with other religious faith)
There are many groups around, and we sincerely hope that if you are looking for a group that you are able to find the group that is right for you. (If our approach is something that you like but you are not located near our covenstead, our coven is connected in a network of approx. 70 covens worldwide, and some do teach long distance – in which I can refer you to if you are not in driving distance to the Harrisburg, PA area.) Our particular group trains seekers of The Craft to become and advance to legal Wiccan clergy.
