Covenant of Rhiannon Community is the oldest established
Coven in the South Jersey area.
The Covenant of
Rhiannon is a Welsh Faery
Tradition Coven. We are a
left hand path tradition...Our primary focus is the FaeryTradition
of Victor and Cora Anderson, but, the Covenant
Rhiannon is also descended from Sybil Leeks Horsa Coven...for
information on that lineage click
Victor Anderson is often quoted as saying "Anything
dangerous", and Faery is both. The current in which we work is that of
life and creation. The very power that maintains the cosmos. This
current flows through all things, whether we're conscious of it or not.
Faery isn't really something that can be taught, it can only be
We can only teach one how to learn it. One learns it from deep within
ones self and from the living world around us. We can only teach the
ways to look deep within, and the tools to become conscious of this
deep lusty current of life.
Our training and practices place a much greater emphasis on developing
the most important tool of the craft; the very self of the Witch.
It stresses the importance of deep inner work, the acknowledgement of
things which we'd rather not face, which are buried deep within us.
Yet in so doing, we not only come to terms with those things that we
fear and loathe, but also the true beauty and grace of our own humanity
and our own divinity.
Faery Tradition is the wild
power of the woodlands and of the Lords of the Outer Darkness. We tap
current of energy that
other traditions would just as soon leave alone, or not recognize at
all. And this can be
frightening to the student of our path. Indeed, our version of Faery,
possession by the Gods during ritual, similar to the rituals of Vodou
Condomble, and we have
our darker aspects, just as the Gods do...We are not ALL light and
love...and deeply...but there is a darker side to our nature also, as
is in all of
creation, and we recognize that darker side. We feel that there is a
danger in Not
recognizing the darker aspects within yourself... To be touched by
Faery is to be touched
by the wilderness... all that is wild and free... and it is not
a path to tread on
lightly...but it IS a path where you can lightly tread!
