Christina Oakley Harrington gives an inside view on how covens of witches up and down the land go out to perform rites at the full moon in the more remote woodlands, stone circles – and even the parks of London.
Wicca – the initiatory tradition of it – remains largely hidden, even though it is called ‘the only religion England has given the world’. At its heart is a form of moon worship. Tonight’s speaker gives an inside view on how covens of witches up and down the land go out to perform rites at the full moon in the more remote woodlands, stone circles – and even the parks of London. She examines how witches understand the moon as goddess, how they relate to it, and how it informs their cosmology, along with some of her most memorable adventures in her life as a practising witch.
Christina Oakley Harrington, PhD, FRSA, is a former academic historian who founded the famed Treadwells Bookshop in 2003. A Wiccan priestess of 30 years standing, she writes and lectures on her tradition in addition to her day job at Treadwells, where she is the Director and brand ambassador.
