Oak and Willow
Do you have a correspondence course?
No, we do offer, from time to time, workshops and conferences that are open to the public, but no distance learning.
Can you initiate me?
Initiation in the Assembly is only given through the covens to their members. Membership does not automatically lead to initiation; this is a lengthy process.
How do I join?
Membership involves a getting to know you period of at least 6 months. This allows time for both the petitioner and the coveners to work together. If you are geographically distant from a coven, it is unlikely that you will be able to participate in a way that leads to membership.
Can you put me in touch with other covens or traditions?
The volume of email that we get is considerable, so please use the magic of the world wide web to search for resources in your area. A good starting point is: The Witches' Voice or The Broomcloset.
Can you tell me how to cast spells.. do rituals... etc...?
No, seek out teachers, workshops, organized groups, and books. You may do yourself a great disservice by jumping into something without enough information and guidance.
I'm under 18, can I join or come to your events?
To join an ASW coven you must be at least 18. Parental permission, and ideally their presence, is required for participation in many of the workshops or events.
Can I come to your open events if I am a beginner or a member of another faith?
Yes, our open events truly are open to all that bring good will and an open mind.
