Seax-Wica - what exactly is it?

Seax-Wica: Founded in 1973 by Raymond Buckland a protégé of Gardner. He moved to the U. S. A. and in 1973 started his own tradition based on Saxon traditions. Hence Seax-Wica.

Briefly, Raymond Buckland and his wife Rosemary were initiated into a Gardnerian coven in the UK in 1964 or 1965. They subsequently founded the "Long Island Coven" in the US, which is the parent coven of some of the oldest Gardnerian lines in North America. However, at some point Buckland became dissatisfied with some of the strictures within Gardnerian Wicca, and began writing books intended to make Wicca more accessible to the general populace. Seax-Wica outlines Buckland's idea of an "Anglo-Saxon Wicca." Regardless of how one may feel about Buckland's premises here, the book does provide a structure upon which one can build a working coven on the Wiccan model. A parallel book on "Pecti-Wicca," which purports to explain Scottish Wicca, has not enjoyed a parallel success.

There is now a confederation of Seax Wica covens world wide with the UK, USA, CANADA, GERMANY, HOLLAND and as far afield as PERU.

The main difference between Seax Wica and other Wiccan traditions is that it is a "Progressive tradition." and has never held with claims of false lineage. And with no oath of secrecy as such it can not lend itself to "one-up-manship" or elitism or the "I am considerably better that you" attitude that has plagued other traditions in the past.

Seax-Wica: This tradition (also known as Saxon Wicca) was founded by Raymond Buckland in 1973 in the United States. Buckland was originally a follower of Gerald Gardner, but he moved to the U.S. in 1962 and gradually moved away from the Gardnerian tradition. Buckland made up his own rituals based on ancient Saxon traditions. Covens decide for themselves whether to work skyclad or robed, and witches can be initiated either by the coven or through self-study
