The coven has been operating in Auckland since 1996 in the Alexandrian tradition. The elders of the coven later undertook further training and initiation in Gardnerian Wicca overseas. Since then, the coven has operated primarily in this tradition.


Ideally a Wiccan coven has between six and a maximum of thirteen members, with a balance of men and women. With this in mind, we are pleased to announce that as of January 2016 we currently have spaces available in our coven and are welcoming enquiries from those who are interested in pursuing training.



We are aware that people are often curious about who we are and what we do. As Wicca is a mystery tradition there are certain aspects that we do not divulge to the uninitiated, but we can provide answers to some commonly asked questions: 



What kind of people join a coven?

Witches! Wicked, wicked witches! - Just kidding :) Actually, contrary to some widely held beliefs, most covens, including our own, are made up of utterly ordinary people who share an interest in the occult mysteries. Our coven's members come from a range of professional backgrounds. 


What is the age range of members of your coven?

Our current members are aged between approximately 20 and 40 years old. However, we have had members outside of this range before.

 

Where are you located?

We are in the Auckland region. However, to maintain our privacy we do not give out our physical address to just anyone. Usually, when we first meet a candidate, we do so in a public place that is convenient to both parties in order for us and them to get to know each other. It may be helpful to know that we are located near several modes of transportation and our current members travel from all over Auckland with ease.


How often do you meet?

Initially, candidates who have been accepted into training attend monthly sessions with the High Priest and High Priestess or another senior member of the coven. These training sessions take place on a week night that suits and there is some flexibility with available times.

Later, there is also the opportunity to attend seasonal celebrations that occur at six weekly intervals - usually on a Saturday evening. These are planned well in advance so plenty of notice is given and again, with some flexibility.

After initiation into the coven proper, we come together to celebrate the eight seasonal sabbats as well as the monthly full moons.

At times we may meet less often depending on the availability of coven members and their own personal commitments/circumstances. 


Does your coven have a lineage?

Yes, our coven's lineage is of the English Gardnerian Tradition of the Craft (in the line of Eleanor Ray Bone).

We also have lineage in Alexandrian Wicca, and influences from Folk Pagan traditions. Some of our groups philosophies and ceremonies also derive from these sources, which creates our unique approach.
