Our Coven is represented by 4 pillars that are our core principles. These are Growth, Balance, Responsibility and Unity. They are the basic philosophy of our Coven. As a Circle of women we honor the 4 pillars as the foundation of our Coven.
The initiatory system of the Ancient Witch is comprised of 3 distinct levels or Degrees. These are said to be transmissible at the hands of the duly initiated Witch. Beyond them is a final stage, that of full initiate, which does not so much comprise another level as represent the completion and perfection of a High Priestess of the Goddess. This later stage can only be obtained by individual effort and realization and is there for said to be non-transmissible but only gifted by Goddess.
It is also true that no process of initiation can impart to a person any power or faculty which She does not already posses. The purpose of the transmissible initiation is thus to assist the candidate to realize by experience, in stages which reflect the natural evolution of the functions and faculties of the psyche, those inner powers whose due awakening and correct ordering result in the attainment of magickal power, with the dynamic integration of all aspects of the personality.
It is, furthermore, the purpose of the initiations not only so to mark out the parameters of advancement but to encourage the growth of the various faculties which are evoked thereby. This is an art, a craft, and a high responsibility on the part of those who would confer initiation by ritual means.
