All potential students are interviewed in person and must meet certain requirements.

The Blackthorn Druid Order was founded by Rick Silfies Potter. He has been a witch and Celtic mystic for 30 years. Rick is the author of two books, “Walking a Magic Path” and “The Noble Art of Divination: A Journal for Tarot & Oracle Decks“. He has served as High Priest of several magical groups and is a member of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids. In 2013, Rick founded the House of Blackthorn, a training program that blends Witchcraft with Celtic Paganism and Druid Philosophy. The House of Blackthorn was re-named the Blackthorn Druid Order in 2019. Rick has taught both publicly and privately for several years, on various topics related to Witchcraft and Magic. Aside from training students in the Order, Rick offers other services to the community. These include tarot, oracle and ogham readings, Magical Reiki, spell candles, ritual oils and incense, Witch Bottles and Three Cauldrons Healing (an energy healing technique based on ancient Celtic text). Rick is a devotee of Cerridwen, the Witch-Mother-Goddess of Welsh origin.
