Sandy English - Founding Priestess
Sandy English has been a practicing Pagan for close to 20 years. She was trained in faery and priesthood traditions by RJ Stewart and Orion Foxwood. She has some training in Celtic Traditional craft and Strega (outer court), as well as some workshop-based training in the Western Mystery Tradition with Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki. through workshops and mentoring, Sandy's work was influenced by talented teachers in different traditions, including significant work with Ivo Dominguez, Jr. and T. Thorn Coyle.
In 2008 Sandy began teaching spiritual work to a small group of students. In the year that followed, the ground was laid for the Silver Branch Priesthood. Through a strong practice in visionary work, the initial tenets, practices, spiritual lines, and magical work of the priesthood was revealed to Sandy, and together with her students she began working with the revealed knowledge and practices. This led to the initiation of the priesthood (and its first initiates) on the Summer Solstice in 2009. Our gods and guides continue to work with us to strengthen our core practices and expand our teachings in service to re-enchanting humanity.
