About Fifty Years in the Feri Tradition

The Definitive Text on the Feri Tradition

Written as a gift to the author's husband, Victor Anderson, for their fiftieth wedding anniversary, this book explains the Andersons' work and teachings in the Feri (Faery) Faith of the Old Religion—its thealogy, physics, and social structure. Profound and insightful, this slim volume is packed with information not available anywhere else, and is the definitive text on the Anderson Craft Tradition.


About the Author: Cora Anderson

Cora Anderson (1915–2008) is the mother of the Feri Tradition. Known for her straightforward, down-to-earth approach, she is the author of Fifty Years in the Feri Tradition; Kitchen Witch: A Memoir; In Mari's Bower: A Biography of Victor H.... Full biography

 

Writing about a subject that has more than its share of glamour and glitz, Cora Anderson writes in a voice that is refreshingly genuine, heartfelt, and wise.

 

Everyone who is interested in the Feri Tradition or the work of Victor and Cora Anderson should read this book. It provides a basic overview of the Craft, its deities, sources, rituals, soul manifestations and types within the Feri realm. It also remedies a lot of misconceptions promulgated by students who received only a piece of the teachings or who claim their own inventions as Feri. But its greatest gift is in giving voice to the clarity of vision and heartfelt sincerity of Cora Anderson, a wise woman who walked the Path with her beloved for over fifty years.

 

With 'Fifty Years in the Feri Tradition,' author and Grandmaster Cora Anderson reflects on various aspects of this often misunderstood branch of modern Witchcraft, touching on such topics as the Three Souls, the Divine Twins, the role of sex in the Craft, the Black Heart of Innocence, and more. ... A real gem for the Feri/Witchcraft enthusiast.

The writing style is veiled and conversational, so much so that at times it feels as if you are hearing her speak to you in a dream and engaging her words more symbolically than literal. (I recommend repeated readings of this work in order to better understand some of the deeper points that are introduced...) Some of the information is specifically directed at parts of the Feri tradition community, while others can be more generally applied to the wider Pagan movement.

... If you are looking for even more information about this often secretive tradition, then 'Fifty Years' ... offers some interesting morsels, straight from the horse's mouth.

 

'Fifty Years' provides a rare glimpse into the applied metaphysical science of the Feri tradition of Witchcraft. … It closes as many doors as it opens though, ... but what can you expect from a largely oral tradition that ultimately and ideally teaches how to walk between the worlds somewhere along the curved mirror of space ... and still get your dishes done.

 

For the first time in print, Cora Anderson reveals some of the practices of Feri tradition spirituality, and explains a little bit of our history. ... This book is an elegantly simple window into a darkly powerful, and joyously beautiful path of deep personal transformation.
