If there is one thing we all know, it is that the spirituality is unique and tailored to the individual spirit, and that many who come to our community do so as seekers hoping to walk a new path towards the goddess, the craft, and personal growth. Lady Wynifred, though a lifelong Witch, took time after her vows and walked her own path through the witch world, guesting with many groups and learning with many teachers.
What she found, was a younger generation of spiritualists seeking open, enlightened, and accepting spaces where they could be guided to their own personal truth. Many of these souls sought to shed the chains of traditional religious and spiritual dogma, and longed for the freedom to grow and learn in a setting that would teach at the pace of the student. It was these findings that would inspire Lady Wynifred, along with a group of her students to began the journey towards the covenant!
FORMING OF THE COVENANT & OUR FIRST MEMBERS
After finishing her spiritual travels, Lady Wynifred returned to her home in Seattle, Washington, and sat down with her student and friend Aurelia Rose to draft the formal mission and plans for the Covenant. As the project began coming together, so did the coven itself.
Members from all different backgrounds came to the covenant and shared their path's and practices with their fellow conveners; creating a unique aspect of our tradition. Like many traditions, we have priests and priestesses, but in an attempt to create a safe and welcoming space for our trans and non-binary friends, we adopted a third leadership role; PriestX!
COVEN TRADITIONS & UNIQUE PRACTICES
In addition to our extra title, we also firmly believe that everyone should have a platform to share their specific practices and beliefs. As such, members of all kinds are welcome to teach and lead circles as long as they coordinate with the church's leadership (so that no one gets forgotten).
Moreover, we invite honoured guests and potential members to attend our open events and parties, as well as our worship services, where they can meet with our current members and learn about our tradition and our church. At these events we strive to provide open and honest answers to any questions to be had, and welcome potential members to our classes.
WHY CHOOSE THE COVENANT?
At the Covenant of the Rose's mother coven and all its affiliate circles, you will find a warm welcome and a place where you can truly be yourself. We encourage free expression and welcome all members and guests to attend in their own aesthetic and styles! We have also made accommodations so that differently-abled persons and those with limited mobility can attend in comfort and safety.
The Covenant believes that peace is always possible and talking about our troubles helps lessen the burden we may feel. As such our coven's leadership, including our Maiden, Priestess, Archpriestess, and board of directors are always available to hear member concerns, and if need be, mediate conflict.
