Mentorship with The Oak and Apple Coven

Mentorship with The Oak and Apple Coven

 

In order to complete mentorship you need to display knowledge and understanding of what the three elements of Earth, Sea, and Sky are. It is your mentor’s job to help you with your understanding and guide you along the way.

 

Below are some examples of ways that you to complete your requirements:

 

Earth: Physical

 

  • Crafting items
  • A study in ecology, geography, or geology
  • Crystals
  • Clothings
  • Food
  • Physical activity
  • Drum making
  • Animal husbandry
  • Gardening

 

Sea: Emotional

 

  • Emotional work
  • Dreams
  • Soul Retrieval
  • Creativity
  • Music
  • Art
  • Poetry
  • Journaling

 

Sky: Mental

 

  • History
  • Knowledge
  • Mythology
  • Speaking
  • Singing
  • Writing
  • Essay
  • Blog writing

 

Keep in mind that there are many ways in which Earth, Sea, and Sky can overlap and you are welcome to combine projects together if you understand which elements make up what part of the project. There is no particular order in which they need to be completed.

 

This is your pagan path and only you can decide how it plays out and what level of work you wish to put into it. You can ask your mentor any questions and no question will ever be taboo or wrong. If your mentor cannot answer your question, they will seek out the answer for you or direct you to someone who is more experienced.

Full Moons of 2018

Part of my practice is following the moon cycles, not only the lunar ones but also my biological one as well. I have put together a chart for you to keep track of when the next full moon is happening in 2018.

Welcome to our new website

Hello and Merry Met! We are the Coven of the Oak & Apple!

Found on Mabon in 2015 in Kelowna BC, the Coven of the Oak & Apple is dedicated to learning about the old ways of our pagan ancestors, following the Wheel of the Year, and creating new traditions.

We seek to cultivate individual spiritual practice while giving our members a group to bounce ideas off of, offer a place to celebrate the Sabbats together, and share knowledge with.

We practice both spiritual paganism as well as reviving skills honed by our ancestors such as food cultivation, brewing of mead, fibers arts, and herbal medicine.

We have members who read the starts, journey into the Otherworld, and research our ancient ways.

If our Coven sounds interesting to you, we encourage you to send us a message either here on our site or come to our Facebook page and message us there. We have a Facebook Group that we can invite you into if you want to join us in Kelowna BC for our events. If you live elsewhere in the world and just want a group to learn with, we welcome you too!
