The Wild Blackthorn
-Coven and Grove-
High Priestess: Nyt
The Wild Blackthorn is a Coven and Grove, forming in the Orlando, Florida area, based up the Jolean Tradition. The tradition was originally founded in 1981, Los Angeles, CA by Lady Teara Wolfrose, and is composed of a Grove, Seekers through Dedicants, and a Coven, Initiates and above. The Outer Court (Grove) of the Wild Blackthorn follows the blended traditions of Welsh & Irish Celtic, Gardnerian and 1734. The Inner Court (Coven) adds the traditions of the Tuatha de Danaan.
Both the Coven and Grove are an extended family that augments the biological and love families of its members. As the local branch grows a children's class can be offered, taught by either our Maiden or Crone priestess, for member children up to the age of sixteen.
Lady Teara Wolfrose, sadly slipped past the veil in 2004. Nyt, her student, and last holder of the tradition in Orlando, has decided to bring back these teachings, coupled with her own, that it may once again be available.
