The Coven of the Elemental Woods is currently serving the Western Region of South Dakota through the Black Hills Spruce Circle. We are group of folks from various backgrounds. We gather for Sabbats, Full Moon & New Moon Esbats. All rituals include a Potluck Dinner for fellowship & fun. We are dedicated to the Temple of Witchcraft Tradition, which was founded by Christopher Penczak, but, we also explore many other traditions and ideas along the way. Our Co-High Priestesses have 25+ years of experience between them and are both 3rd Degree (or Higher) Witches. Our "Mission Statement" that we call a Declaration of Higher Purpose is listed below.
We currently offer a beginners class called The Elements of Wicca. New classes start in December 2016! And we have other classes available as well.
DECLARATION OF HIGHER PURPOSE:
1.) We strive to see the divine in nature and nature in the divin...e, while living in a manner that honors and celebrates the goddess and the god.
2.) We practice eclectic Wiccan beliefs with a primary focus on the Temple of Witchcraft tradition, while honoring and exploring all cultures and belief systems.
3.) It takes work and dedication to be an active Witch. Therefore we support our fellow covenmates in our aspirations and encourage each other to continue growing and learning.
4.) We will regularly hold rituals for Sabbats and Esbats to commune with the Goddess and the God and each other to work magick, and recognize rites of passage. We are devoted to our Shamanic Duty to turn The Wheel of the Year.
5.) We will nourish the Earth and all Her creatures. We will honor them as they are sacred. We will work to heal and protect the environment in our communities, throughout our nation and across the world. And As we walk between the worlds we revere all mystical beings and treat all seven plains of existance with respect.
6.) We will teach Wiccan Beliefs and Pagan Skills to all interested coven members and any seekers of enlightenment.
7.) Where appropriate we will strive to educate the general public about Wicca and Paganism.
8.) We vow to communicate in a way that is truthful, necessary and kind and we will make every effort to choose our words carefully.
9.) REQUEST OF COMMITMENT: All initiated members of The Coven of the Elemental Woods must have fully committed themselves to this Declaration of Higher Purpose in their beliefs, their activities and their lives. So, Mote It Be.
