Coven of the Crossroads is the founding coven of Ignis Spirae. Established by Lady Wynter in 2018, COTC is located in Charlotte, NC. We are a training coven open to Seekers of all experience levels.For more information or for online classes offered by Lady Wynter join us at the Liminal Spaces Mystery School.
We have two levels of participation: General Membership and the Coven Membership.
General Membership is available to individuals 21 years of age or older who have been invited into the tradition or are students of the Witch’s Tree of Life Mystery School’s year long classes. Students of these classes will still need to petition for membership into the tradition and enrollment in the class does not guarantee acceptance. Members may attend any open event or ritual. Those interested in membership will need to complete an application and agree to the Bylaws and Code of Conduct.
Dedicants are considered General Members. Dedication is for those seeking coven training and practice in preparation for initiation. Any general member may petition for acceptance into coven training.
All active initiates are considered Coven Members.
First Degree Initiates: Members who have completed a minimum of a year and a day as Dedicants and have met all the requirements for First Degree as defined by the Coven.
Second Degree Initiates: Initiates who have been active in the coven for a minimum of one year and a day beyond their First Degree initiation and have met all the requirements for Second Degree as defined by the Coven. Second Degree Initiates receive the title of Priestess, Priest, or Priestex.
Third Degree Initiates: Initiates who have been active in the coven for a minimum of one year and a day beyond their Second Degree elevation, who have undertaken extensive advanced study and ritual training, attainted advanced craft knowledge and experience, have met all the requirements for Third Degree as defined by the Coven, and have been recommended by the High Priestess, with the approval of the Elder Council. Third Degree Initiates receive the title High Priestess, High Priest, or High Priestex. Third Degree Initiates are eligible to establish their own coven in the Ignis Spirae tradition or remain in their training coven as an Elder.
Initiates in good standing may choose to step away from active coven practice and still remain General Members of the tradition.
