Initiation in British Witch Tradition - A HexFest 2020 Workshop with Gemma Gary

Initiation in British Witch Tradition

Featuring Gemma Gary

Saturday, August 8

1:30 pm

St Ann Cottage 1 [map]

Full Schedule

The rite of initiation is threaded throughout the history and lore of the witch – from present-day inductions into the streams and currents of individual witch-lineages and the ‘passing of the power’, to the old-time pacts and pledges to the old one, often bound to traditions of the landscape.

With this talk we shall explore specific traditions of witch initiation extant in British witch-lore, the common threads often at their heart, and the commencement of a working relationship betwixt the witch and the ‘Other’ – establishing a conduit of power, wisdom and virtue.
