The Definitive Text on the Feri Tradition
Written as a gift to the author's husband, the blind poet and shaman Victor H. Anderson, for their fiftieth wedding anniversary, Fifty Years in the Feri Tradition explains the Andersons' work and teachings in the Feri 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 Feri Tradition.
Cora Anderson helped to train some of the most influential voices in neo-Paganism, including Starhawk and Gwydion Pendderwen. She worked as a hospital cook for many years and was a contributing writer to Potpourri of Cookery. Her articles were featured in Witch Eye and Circle magazines, and her recipes were published in Women's Circle.
"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. Written as a gift for her husband, the blind poet and shaman Victor Anderson, this book is an elegantly simple window into a darkly powerful, and joyously beautiful path of deep personal transformation... a real gem for the Feri/Witchcraft enthusiast." -- Storm Faerywolf, editor of Witch Eye magazine
"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." -- M. Macha NightMare, coauthor with Starhawk of The Pagan Book of Living and Dying
"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." -- Mary K. Greer, author of Women of the Golden Dawn: Rebels and Priestesses
"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." -- Thom Fowler, contributor to Celebrating the Pagan Soul
