Welcome to Oak Henge Grove!
Oak Henge Grove was founded December of 2010. It is a daughter coven of Phoenix Moon Grove, which closed its doors in 2010. We were part of the Unicorn Tradition of Georgia which began its existence over thirty years ago, but as of November 2012, the Texas branch has separated and we claim our right own tradition. That tradition, here in Texas, and largely in this area, has been going since 1982 and has seen four generations of Covens. By what name we distinguish ourselves with will be forthcoming soon.
Oak Henge takes as its emblems three things: The Oak tree (the Live Oak hereabouts), the stone circle, or Henge, and the Dragon.
- We look to the strength, stability, beauty, and knowledge of the Oak, as well as the water, soil, sun, and air that comprise its birth and existence.
- We revere the mystery, and secrets of the Earth evident in a old circle of stones, as well as the yearly wheel it can represent.
- Balancing this with firey breath and airy wing, is the inspiration and transformative magic inherent in the Dragon.
Oak Henge Grove is an eclectic Grove and Coven, but with strong traditional foundation. We are a teaching and working group. We celebrate the eight sabbats of the year, as well as the phases of the moon. To those who are interested, we teach our way of spiritual reverence and practice in class form. We are also an initiatory tradition. We offer a five level, three degree system of practice, training, and achievement.
As a nature based religion, our beliefs are garnered from what we observe and experience in viewing life, as well as our highest hopes and ideals. We see nature and diety as having a polarity we view as female and male. Goddess and God. They exist equally, neither more important than, nor less, than the other. Without either, there would be no life.
Oak Henge Grove does not discriminate on basis of race, sex, age, gender, or sexual preference. The classes and ritual group work we offer does not require initiation. Nor does it promise it. Initiation is something acheived after study, practice, honorable intent, evidence of the will, and the agreement of Spirit. While we do not discriminate on basis of age, we do not take on students below the age of 21 without the signed agreement of parents or guardians. Before becoming students, everyone goes through a screening, and interview. This is to ensure a safe, comfortable learning environment and spiritual practice for everyone. Also, we teach in private homes, so we require confidentiality, and the ability to get to class under your own steam. We ask our students to treat it like one would a class in college, with respect to your teacher and fellow students. This includes: Responsibility, Promptness, Courtesy, Preparedness.
