Hello I’m Noel, I’ve been following the path for about 6 years. I consider myself an eclectic pagan with Norse leanings. Although our path is an ancient one, I embrace technology and am always open to learning new tools to aid in my spiritual journey.

Geurin is a current dedicant with the Rose of the Sea teaching circle. She focuses her talents on healing. Her favorite thing is meditation, and she often helps others learn to do so. She has been a solitary for 3 years and this is her first year with Rose of the Sea.

Marius is one third of the Rose of the Sea’s triple goddess. He is also a second degree dedicant. Marius has a path in Wicca that has been influenced by the Cultus deorum.

I am Silas Cain, (Paul Martinis), fiancé of Noel. I have been a Pagan my entire life with the exception of a BRIEF flirtation with Christianity. Later in life I was called to be a Tree Speaker and more importantly a Witch of the Elements. I follow a Wiccan Path but not strictly as I love all Pagan paths. Shamanism has been screaming my name recently, might have to chat some of you Shamans up!!

Anja is Elder of the Rose of the Sea Teaching Circle. Born to a long line of teachers and educators, she is a Sea Witch by calling, Slavic Shaman Fam Trad, Anderson Feri initiate and 3rd degree Wicca. She and Tempus are the owners of Ancient Light. Her blog the Daily Stuff comes out each day with shop info plus the kitchen sink.

Rozaylia is an eclectic Pagan who over the last 20+ years has studied Gardnerian, Alexandrian, Reclaiming and Anderson Feri traditions, with smatterings of Sufi-ism, Buddhism and all kinds of other things thrown in. She is a spiritual seeker as well as a teacher, and vows to never stop learning and finding the mystery, romance and magic in the Ordinary. She has been teaching for 10 years and across three states. Her main interest in the Pagan community is social action, rights for Pagans, and helping to people of all paths connect with their commonalities. As a result she has been a Pagan religious service volunteer in Oregon State Prisions, on the BOD for several non-profits, and ritual coordinator for Salem Pagan Pride Day. In every day life, Rozaylia is a web developer and lives in Salem with her partner Dustin, stepdaughters Riley and Brisa and daughters Lyric and Maisie

My name is Tempus. I am an eclectic Wiccan and a pursuer of old truths in new bottles. My main interest is in trying to find a philosophic framework that enables me to integrate the old metaphysical truths with the new understandings of the Universe afforded us by modern science. I’m the other half of Ancient Light, run Magycke Mower Small Engine Repair and have a degree in physics which I’m using mostly on lawnmowers and wine at the moment….. Briggs and Stratton did put out a line of engines named Quantum at one point, so I have to say that I’m a Quantum Mechanic…

Debbie White is a retired teacher, having taught 6th grade for 30 years. She is currently immersing herself in understanding the healing properties of crystals and like most teachers, is excited to share her new found knowledge and skills with others.

The Rose of the Sea Wiccan Teaching Circle was founded on Mabon 2004 by Anja and Daniel (now Fawkes). We’re an eclectic group from the lineage of Ferion Wicca, oathbound not to each other, but to the Work, the God/dess/es and our Selves. We do open Circles for each Sabbat, having an active group that meets for work circles on the esbats. We have a full curriculum starting with a Wicca 101 class and leading up to 2nd degree initiation.

Lupa is an author, artist and amateur naturalist in Portland, OR. She is the author of several books on nature-based paganism, and as an artist she works with hides, bones and other natural materials. She may be found online at http://www.thegreenwolf.com (She’s the Wednesday 10/15 workshop)
