BlackHeart is a branch of the Feri Tradition as descended through Victor and Cora Anderson (founders of Feri Tradition). The lineage was founded, developed and is currently taught by Karina, an Initiate of both The Third Road and Feri Tradition Witchcraft. BlackHeart combines traditional Feri teachings with a sprinkling of Third Road exercises and a strong helping of Karina’s own contributions. We are one of the few lines of Feri only lightly influenced by the BloodRose line. There is a strong shamanic emphasis on ecstatic experience coupled with practical application; a focus on full integration, embodiment and Be-ing the Craft rather than doing it; the development of personal power and responsibility; communion with and possession by divinities; the development of a Lover/Warrior Ethic; and of course, the unending pursuit of BlackHearted Innocence so integral to working this level of magic with integrity and sincerity.
BlackHeart Feri takes few students and makes very few initiates. Among our goals is the development of powerful, ethical Witches whose magic is consistently effective and whose devotion to the Gods is unshakable. Students train rigorously for many years. During this time, trust and friendships develop not only between student and teacher, but among all initiates and students of the line. Over the years we have happily discovered BlackHeart is not only a lineage of Feri Tradition, but a close knit family with members spanning the United States and Europe. Some students never seek initiation, but if they are worthy of trust, they remain welcome members of la Familia.
