WELCOME TO THE
DESERT HENGE COVEN WEBSITE
changed the contact address to one I actually check.
Welcome to the website for Desert Henge Coven, located in Tucson, Arizona. Our coven practices British Traditional Witchcraft, more commonly known as Gardnerianism. Our coveners take pride in their Tradition and are always happy to help seekers along their path. Go to the Desert Henge information page for a little more about our coven, classes, and members.
We do not hold online classes, but our site has an extensive selection of articles that may help you along your path. If you are looking for hands-on training, Desert Henge welcomes all seekers who wish to attend our weekly classes at our covenstead in Tucson, Arizona. Click here for our contact information!
May the Gracious Lady and Her most Noble Consort ever be your guide on your chosen path. Blessed Be!
The contents of this site are loosely grouped by topic. Our articles don't contain "How To" information, such as spells or rituals, because we teach those lessons in our weekly coven meetings. They are simply informational pieces on the topics outlined below.
The latest changes and additions will be listed at the top of the page.
If you would like to submit your work to be posted on our site, feel free to contact us!
- Biographies of Desert Henge Members
These are somne of the biographies of Desert Henge Coveners, past and rpesent. We invite any current and former members to submit their bios for this page, but won't force anyone to do so as everyone has the right to remain in or come out of the Broom Closet.
UPDATE: Biographies of Shea and Cerridwen.
- Gardnerian Wicca
Gardnerianism, like all Traditions, has certain beliefs and ritual actions that make it different from other Traditions. Much of Gardnerianism has been developed and is followed simply because it works well! Although our theology is not as rigid as are some of the monotheistic religions, still we have a set theology that guides us in our lives.
- Theology of Witchcraft
Although not specifically Gardnerian, these papers do not counter Gardnerian belief and help to explain much of what British Traditional Witches do and believe.
UPDATE: Added a paper on Sexual Ethics by Cerridwen.
- Myths and Legends
Myths and legends from Traditional Wicca.
UPDATE: Added The First Woman and The Nightmare of the World.
These are some puzzles, crosswords, logic, etc that I have collected over the decades. Feel free to print them up and enjoy them. Also, feel free to clean them up, identify the author return them to me in a nicer format and also submit your own for inclusion
The Goddess tells us to perform our Rites in Mirth and Reverence. We take that to include our mundane lives as well. The Theology is the Reverence, here is the mirth part.
updated 7 December 2007 Wicca is a religion of sexual freedom. This means that so long as your partner(s) are a) consenting and b) adults, anything goes. Itís when that partner is coerced or forced that the act becomes a crime against man and God/dess!
UPDATE: Added a statue from Vietnam.
- Links to Other Sites
Links to other Gardnerian and pagan sites, along with our favorite pagan-friendly comics!
UPDATE: Added links to Rick Johnson's persona websites.
