Group Overview: Service to the Goddess and to humanity is an important part of a priest/ess's life and character. We believe that there are many paths to enlightenment and to truth...no one path is "better" than another. All have validity. As such students in the Apple Branch serve in a variety of ways. All are trained to assist others in life passages. There are those who specialize in the healing arts. They may be teachers, counselors and artists. There are those who serve as Green Men and Guardians and who specialize in the awareness of and use of energy. Regardless of the specialty, all work with the natural order of life, in balance and harmony with all.

A priestess is taught to not only channel for the Goddess, but also to hold and maintain the energies within the Circle. Unless she/he has someone appointed for this task, she also provides energetic protection for the Circle (Sacred Space) . We have found that this works quite well but that sometimes the roles can be shared. There are women whose natural inclinations lean in this direction and that in many cases, as priestesses, they would opt to serve in a Guardian role. For men, that role is as priest and Green Man.

Green Men and Guardians serve as what we call "edge walkers" and monitor not only the energies of those in sacred space, but also provide energetic protection against any outside forces beyond the boundaries of the Circle. A big part of their task would also be to monitor the energies of the Priestess, making sure that her energy levels are maintained.

Women and men who have applied to the Apple Branch to train as Guardians and Green Men receive exactly the same training as the ritual priestesses. Because they wish to serve with special emphasis on working with energy using the shamanic techniques needed for "edge walking", we offer deeper training in these area for them.

Magic is viewed as a potential for creation. A potential that exists within all things, living and non-living. We draw upon this energy and the energy within ourselves to bring into manifestation that which is needed for the highest good of others and ourselves. We give thanks and offerings respectfully as we know we still have much to learn.

Our cosmos has three interconnected realms...Land, Sea and Sky, interwoven with the Sacred Fire, the Divine Spark within all living and non-living beings. We of the Apple Branch follow the Lunar Cycles applying our knowledge of the Ogham as our guide. Work is done on the 13 New Moons, as well as on the Full and Dark Moons. We keep the Cycle of the Year, that Great Spiral that guides us in our daily lives. The pantheon followed is a personal choice.
