Going Dark

Thanks so much to all of you who have taken time to contact us over the last few weeks. We’ve had more messages than usual and we will hopefully contact you all in the next few days.

We will be going dark for the first three months of this year, using the time to reconnect, reintegrate and deepen our group mind after the interruptions and ravages of Covid during the last two years. So we will be hiding away in the darkness of the woods, and will not be accepting any new members.

Our very successful Introduction to Witchcraft Circle will be repeated this year hopefully starting the last Wednesday in April. Applications to be added to mailing list are now open. Please send a message ( we will need an email) or email if you are interested and you will receive updates when details are finalised and bookings are open.

Taking place once a month, in the evening, for three months, beginning in April 2022. For anyone looking at applying to become part of our coven it is an essential first part of your training. The course is based on our own tradition and our own personal views of witchcraft. We encourage everyone to explore and study on their own. You need to be prepared to engage with the course, as it will involve discussions and practical work

Winter 2021

Following our tradition, we met in the woods to celebrate the turning of the year and to work magic at the full and dark moons.

Covid stalked the land and we were not left untouched. We only had a full group once, on one rainy cold night in November. Healing became our main focus and sent out to all who have been affected by the seemingly endless pandemic.

Here’s hoping it is on its way out in 2022.

Only four of us left standing at Yule this year

Witchcraft Introduction Circle

Thanks to all those who attended our 2021 Introduction to Witchcraft Course.

It was wonderful to meet so many other like minded people and to give some of them their first experiences of being out in the woods at night.

A belated welcome those who chose to join the coven in May 2021.

We plan to hold another course in Spring 2022: dates TBC
