Coven Title: Council
Hello I work with High Magick. I am that practitioner who performs ceremonies lit by fire and the light of the full moon. I work with and beyond the basic elements that you see put forth in standardized literature, and my interests show no restraint. My gods are the trees, and my spirits are the birds that sing sweetly with the rising of the the morning sun. I believe there is spirit in us all and in everything and because of this I've found connections between things, and it's through those connections that I communicate and direct my will throughout the world and our universe.
I grew up just outside a First Nations Reservation and spent a lot of my teen years there learning about spirituality, my inner self, and their traditional way of life. I am friend of the Stoney, Cree, and Sioux nations. We break fry bread together.
From 1997 to 2013 I was a member of an esoteric club of sorts. Save for the High Priestess, I was the longest serving members. I began as initiate, reading the knowledge they had; with a grain of salt. I took knowledge tests, and I would help teach new initiates even when I was still on my 3 month probation. Shortly after I was fully initiated which allows everyone to get a sense of each other, I was promoted to a co-mentorship with one of the prophets we had come in and out of the house. In 2004 I was offered to hold the position of the Keeper of the Scrolls, in which it was my responsibility to know the literature that we had, and our inventory was just shy of 450 different books, including copies of religious texts. In 2009 our High Priest stepped down and I was offered to train to become an ordained minister and a High Priest, however I declined and in 2013 our "club" disbanded and the High Priestess decided to sell much of what we had attained at a private auction. Shortly after we disbanded I took a course to become an ordained minister, and since then I have wed just over a dozen people since 2014.
Pleasure to meet you, I'm Minister Rod Wendell.
