This is the official informational website of the Correllian Nativist Tradition.

Here at Correllian.com you can learn more about the Correllian Tradition, its leading members, locations around the world, legally incorporated churches, and enjoy photo essays about Correllian events.

The Correllian Nativist Tradition is the largest and fasted growing Wiccan Tradition in the world.

Many Correllian organizations having state level incorporation in their own right include Selu Temple, Enchanted Realm Temple, and the Correll Mother Temple itself among others.

The Correllian Nativist Tradition 

The Correllian Nativist Tradition has locations in countries around the world including the USA, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Denmark, Sweden, Uruguay, Mexico, Belgium, Argentina, and Spain and members in many other places including Peru, Brazil, Hong Kong and Singapore. For a list of our locations click HERE.
 
The Correll Mother Temple is located in Danville, Illinois, USA, but meets in many locations. Any location in which the Mother Temple meets is said to be "Under-the-Hill" after the name of its original meeting place.

So what is the Correllian Nativist Tradition, and what makes it different from other Wiccan Traditions?

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 us apart.

But perhaps the one thing that most sets Correllian Wicca apart is that we have embraced the internet as an educational tool. 

Correspondence teaching is nothing new in Wicca, but we were the first to utilize the internet as a serious tool for training new initiates. This has brought  great expansion and many changes to our Tradition, and we are still in the process of mastering this new teaching medium.

The Correllian Tradition is dedicated to the advancement of the Pagan people. We believe strongly in the need for increased communication and co-operation between Pagans everywhere, from all Traditions.

We stress the importance of the Pagan Clergy as teachers and facilitators, and the need for a strong public presence. 
The Correllian Tradition emphasizes celebratory as well as initiatory Wicca, and is strongly committed to accessible public ritual.

TRADITION LEADERSHIP   

Another 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. 

The 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 Witan Council, which is made up of all Temple Heads, Elders, and Officers of the Tradition; And the Correllian Council of Elders which includes the Heads and Officers of the Tradition, and its most respected members.  


Using Third Degree teachers assisted by First and Second Degree Mentors, we have  worked with witchschool.com to build what we consider the best Wiccan correspondence education available online, backed by a real-time support network of Temples, Shrines, and Study Groups around the world.  

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