A new free Wiccan outer court is coming to Issaquah. The outer court will take the format of a quiet discussion and meditation group Sundays at 6:30pm at a private residence. The outer court is backed by an elder of the Kingstone path of British Traditional Wicca, with the support of a coven.
What is Wicca?
For the context of an outer court, Wicca is an oath-bound, initiatory, mystery tradition. Practitioners worship through experiential ritual. There are many other eclectic Neo-Pagans that do not have aspects such as initiation, mysteries or oaths, but they also do not have outer courts. To learn more about Wicca and Wiccans, a good first step is to inquire about an outer court.
What is an outer court?
An outer court is a group in which potential seekers of Wicca can ask questions and get to know Wiccans to see whether they would be the right fit for the coven or "inner court," typically for at least a year and a day. It isn't necessarily a class, and initiation is not guaranteed upon completion of any materials or amount of time.
Who should come to an outer court?
Nobody will be turned away from the outer court due to gender, race, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age or even creed, though respect is expected. Children should be accompanied by an adult, since some topics of discussion will require parental discretion.
Are there male Wiccans?
In stories and fairy tales, male witches are rare, but in the vibrant Pagan community in the Pacific Northwest, men of any sexual orientation or marital status are welcomed. As such, guys are especially invited to attend the outer court as seekers.
