the Goddess. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

births a daughter.

Often people come to Clann C as a group they are interested in because of our longevity,
organization and structure. However if the Celtic, specifically Arthurian Celtic, is not your
pantheon of choice, there really is NO point in you becoming an aspirant to us.
So how do you know??
Below are suggested books to read and websites to check out.
If none of these sing to your soul, or even pique your interest, we are not the coven for you.
Brightest Blessings on your journey.
NOTE: Besides the obvious classics, many books and authors which are required reading for
Clann C initiates are NOT on the below lists. So be advised that there are many other authors
we do admire/learn from, which we will not list publically.
