The Queensberry Coven is the coven that gives origin to the Queensberry Line. The coven is a Traditional Alexandrian coven with direct lineage to Alex and Maxine Sanders.
The Queensberry Coven is a traditional Alexandrian coven working in the city of Boston. It has a direct lineage to Alex and Maxine Sanders. The Coven has two different roots; the Du Bandia Grasail Line of Alexandrian Witchcraft from Boston (Boston Line) and London with Maxine Sanders. The training is then a blend of two distinct but equally essential branches which makes it unique.
As a training Coven, the Queensberry Coven meets for all the Sabbats and Esbats, as well as Training Circles and Working Circles.
In this work, the members connect with the tides of the Universe and observe the Inner Mysteries of Witchcraft in a Traditional Alexandrian Coven.
We also focus, develop and teach on Hermetic pathworking, Qabalah and the Pauline Art of Angelic Magic.
The Queensberry Coven also hosts an Alexandrian Evening in Boston once in a while to meet with those who are interested in the Alexandrian Tradition and to answer any questions that candidates might have. Please refer to our event page for dates and the RSVP process.
REQUEST FOR INITIATION INTO THE QUEENSBERRY COVEN
Please note that the following is the protocol for requesting initiation into the Queensberry Coven and the Queensberry Line of the Alexandrian Tradition of Wicca only. By the time an individual requests initiation and subsequent training in the Alexandrian Tradition, contact with a prospective coven and teacher would have been made, either through one of the Evenings held regularly or through whatever other means.
To request initiation and subsequent training in the Alexandrian Tradition of Wicca, you will have to send a formal letter to the coven, containing the history of your own path up to the time of the application. This letter must include which groups you attended and of what tradition if any. It needs to include what your experiences have been within paganism or witchcraft or Wicca, including any teachers or mentors who assisted you in your training, if any. You will also have to state why you wish to be part of The Alexandrian Tradition – given that there are other forms of witchcraft, paganism, and Wicca available. The letter will also have to include what it is you think that the Craft can give you, and also what you think you can bring to the Craft. Finally, it has to clearly state in the letter that you wish to be initiated and trained within the Alexandrian Tradition of Wiccca.
Be aware that although this letter will be read by members of the Priesthood, there are no guarantees of acceptance or consideration of your request.
**Also note that if you are accepted for the pre-initiatory preparation sessions conducted by the Priesthood of the Alexandrian Tradition, you will have to cease any and all magickal or religious practices and activities including participation in other Traditions, Orders and groups, Open or closed rituals, or any other type of occult or witchcraft-related training, with the exception of personal devotional practices. **
Once the request is made, the candidate must be aware that he or she will have to devote themselves exclusively to training within the Alexandrian Tradition. Any candidate who is accepted for Initiation will have to travel to the coven at least 3 times per month, unless in a different province, in which case there will be different protocols. As such, please consider travel plans and the feasibility of them before applying for initiation.
We do not initiate any individual whose profession puts them into intense contact with death regularly, such as gravediggers, abattoir workers and butchers, and morticians. This regulation does not include medical Doctors. We do not initiate individuals with severe disabilities, either inflicted by accident or by birth.
