The Anderson F(a)eri(e) Tradition is an initiatory tradition of contemporary American witchcraft. It is an ecstatic tradition (rather than fertility based) stemming from the teachings of Victor and Cora Anderson. Strong emphasis is placed on sensual experience and awareness, including sexual mysticism, which is not limited to a heterosexual expression.
Core teachings include the concepts of the Three Souls, the Iron and Pearl Pentacles, the Black Heart of Innocence as well as an emphasis on trance experiences and personal experience of the divine. The Tradition also passes a specific energetic current.
While some lineages place an emphasis on certain deities or pantheons there is not a universal pantheon amongst F(a)eri(e)s. However, a few specific deities are given special importance in most lines of the Tradition. In addition to the Gods, F(a)eri(e)s also work with Seven Guardians. The Guardians are seven primordial beings associated with the directions North, South, East, West, Above, Below and Center.
