The Blackthorn Druid Order is a formal, private training order developed by Rick Silfies Potter. The curriculum is a blend of Celtic Paganism, Druid Philosophy and Old World Witchcraft. These thirteen monthly lessons are presented in person in a group setting. Classes take place the first Sunday of each month, and each class lasts around three hours. We are located in the Lehigh Valley area of Pennsylvania.

Develop a strong foundation for your personal practice and learn the ways of the Draighean: the Blackthorn Druid Witch.

The path of the Draighean honors Nature and Celtic Lore, the study and application of Magical Wisdom and Occult Knowledge, and the dedication to Healing and Service. This triplicity of magical wisdom is represented by three symbols: the Triquetra, the Triskele and the Celtic Knot Circle.

Topics include: Witchcraft, Druid Philosophy, Celtic Mysticism, Circle Casting, Ritual Structure & Leadership, Creating a Personal Altar, Sacred Space, Gods and Goddesses of Celtic Lore and Legend, Meditation and Creative Visualization, Magical Theory and Practice, Spellcasting, Divination, Animal and Tree Lore, Crystals, Magical Herbs and Plants, Candles and Essential Oils, Energy Healing, Magical Spirituality, Activism and Community Service.

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

Cost is $25 for each lesson or a total of $325. Monthly payments accepted.
