Wica in Ayrshire was origionally started during the 1960′s when Charles Clark was initiated into The Wica of Gerald B. Gardner. For moreinformation please read my fellow priestess’web site at:www.thewica.co.uk
The coven was run strictly on the rules of Gardnerian Wica and many were taught initiated and some hived off to form their own groups or work solitary. All members had to hand copy the ‘Gardnerian book of Shadows’ as produced by Gerald and Doreen Valiente in the 1950′s. It was revised again in the 1960′s & 70′s. Anything else we learned or had an interest in was put in a separate book. In all the coven produced 13 volumes including the BOS.
John Upton – the coven High Priest worked as an Artist and the volumes are ornately decorated and the texthand written. Sadly our two other High Priests Charles Clark and David died leaving just one 2nd Degree and one 1st Degree Priest still with us. For a coven to work well it is important for the HP & HP’s to work well together and both be working towards the same goal. Sadly many covens disband when there is a split of some kind between the HP & HP’s.
As an Iseum we also lobby theHouse of Lords & Parliament in order to change laws and support abused women. We have a list of Members of Parliament & Counselors who also support our cause. I took an interest in Reiki and went through attunement for Usui Reiki, Kundalini Reiki and some other healing modalities. I felt something was missing and devised Dakini Reiki which I used to work with women who are also undergoing Counselling and Psychotherapy. Using an hour of Talk Therapy coupled with Dakini Reiki can greatly improve their mental and physical beings.
