|Covenant of Rhiannon Community: The Witches of Cape May
A Congregation of the Church of Ravenstar: a NJ non- profit corporation
...The Covenant of Rhiannon Community is the oldest established Coven in the South Jersey area.
The Covenant of Rhiannon is a Feri Tradition Coven. We are a left hand path tradition...Our primary focus is the FeriTradition of Victor and Cora Anderson, but, the Covenant of Rhiannon is also descended from Sybil Leeks Horsa Coven...for more information on that lineage click here
Victor Anderson is often quoted as saying "Anything worthwhile is dangerous", and Feri 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. Feri isn't really something that can be taught, it can only be learned. 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.
Feri Tradition is the wild power of the woodlands and of the Lords of the Outer Darkness. We tap into a 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 Feri, practices possession by the Gods during ritual, similar to the rituals of Vodou or Condomble, and we have our darker aspects, just as the Gods do...We are not ALL light and love...Yes, we 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 Feri 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!
