So what is the Correllian
Nativist Tradition, and what makes it different from other Wiccan
Usually when people ask this they are expecting a liturgical answer
-some special beliefs or ritual forms that are unique to Correllianism.
Correllianism does put an unusually strong emphasis on the
philosophical aspects of Wicca, and on the spirituality and inner
mysteries of the Wiccan religion, but liturgically our beliefs do not
especially differ from those of other Wiccan Traditions. Rather it is
our attitudes toward the Pagan community and its future that tend to set

thing that makes Correllian Wicca different from many other Traditions
of Wicca is that we are a unified Tradition with a single leadership.
Although increasing numbers of Correllian Temples have their own
incorporation, they are they are all part of one Tradition, an
inter-dependent whole which stands together as a family.
entire world-wide Tradition has a single structure allowing us to act
together as few other Traditions can.
The leading bodies of the Correllian Tradition include; The
Council, which is made up of all Temple Heads, Elders, and
the Tradition; And the Correllian
Council of Elders which includes the Heads and Officers of the
Tradition, and its most respected members.

we have worked with witchschool.com
to build what we consider the best Wiccan correspondence education

revolutionary idea in the Wiccan world, and has upset a few people,
we are proud of our online curriculum and our Clergy and students have
been very pleased with the results.
