Sphinx Clan is a family of training covens and study groups in the Black Forest Clan tradition of Witchcraft. Within this tradition, initiates serve the Gods as pagan clergy. Our primary focus is Celtic/Germanic Witchcraft including folk magic and Pennsylvania Dutch Pow Wow. Black Forest Clan covens are not social clubs, although we do enjoy the company of our “family”. Clan members experience Traditional training in a family-style environment, and encouragement of personal development and interests.
As a training clan, we extend into the community as well, offering the First Directions course to adults new on the path, as well as those interested in training with the clan.
This introduction to the Craft is designed for those taking their first steps in the world of the Craft. It is also a pre-requisite for all traditional training in the Sphinx Clan, regardless of prior Pagan experience. Those who have long-term experience should be able to work through the course without the purchase of the textbook.
This series will not teach you Traditional Craft, but it will teach you about it. You will walk away with a basic understanding of the backbone of Wicca. If you should wish to continue your studies, this class will give you a strong foundation to move forward from.
