What is Coven Morannwn?

By Traditional, we mean that we are a group that descends from other groups with similar core teachings.  By Initiatory, we mean a group that focuses on the spiritual development of each of its members through mystery rites.  By Wiccan, we mean a group based on the thealogy and liturgy of Gerald Gardner, Doreen Valiente, Alex Sanders, Stanley Modrzyk, and others.

Coven Morannwn descends from First Temple of the Craft of WICA through Pagan Temple of Arkansas and the Conclave of the Craft working group Naofa Tintean.  It is a mixed-gender coven following a three-degree initiatory system, celebrating the balance of feminine and masculine divine energies, and reverencing the special relationships we have with the elements, our ancestors, and our familiar spirits.  It welcomes participants regardless of race, color, sex, gender identity or expression, age, national or ethnic origin, disability, marital or familial status, sexual orientation, political belief, or military status.

Who is Coven Morannwn's high priestess?

Coven Morannwn's high priestess, Rev. Amy E. Rhea, was elevated to clergy status in 2011 by Susan Stoddard and JoMichael Stoddard of Pagan Temple of Arkansas. She was initiated to the second degree in 2016 by Victoria Chance and Alex Gonzalez of Naofa Tintean. Previously, Amy studied under H. Salyx Nuit and Rune Kai S. of Circle Fey. She received initiation to the first degree in 2003.

Amy has presented workshops and rituals at events including Pagan Picnic in St. Louis, Goddess Festival in Fayetteville, Arkansas, and Pan Pagan Festival in Knox, Indiana. Her special interests include historical and folkloric witchcraft, sacred sexuality, and clergy training.

Eight-Week Seekers Class starting in November!

Our Seekers Class is an eight-week course which introduces participants to the Wiccan religion and to the Conclave of the Craft's particular tradition of Wicca.  It is held twice a year, beginning at Samhain and Beltaine, and costs $25 per person for the entire course. This fee goes directly toward defraying expenses such as the cost of printing materials for each class and renting the meeting space. The Seekers Class is open to sincere seekers ages 18 and over. We accept seekers under the age of 18 with written parental consent. For more information, email Conclave of the Craft.

Our Dedicants Class is a longer training program, lasting a year or more, and prepares participants for initiation into a Conclave working group or competent practice as a solitary practitioner.  The Dedicants Class is open to those who have successfully completed our Seekers Class and who have established a good relationship with existing Conclave members.

Our Topics in Witchcraft series consists of one- or two-part classes designed to educate participants on a specific subject of interest to Pagans, such as tarot, meditation, sacred sexuality, or ritual design.  These classes are offered periodically throughout the year.
