Our High Priest

Jim Dickinson is a Third Degree Initiate of the Assembly of the Sacred Wheel and has been practicing Wicca for 36 years. He is a founding member of the ASW, having been a member of its first coven, Keepers of the Holly Chalice. He later founded and served as High Priest for the ASW's Coven of the Rowan Star (founded in 1992) and Guardians of the Windsword (founded in 2002). Both are based in Georgetown. Jim is a ritualist, magician, priest, and teacher that draws on qabalah, astrology, sweat lodge, divination techniques, divine possession, shamanism, and anything else that works, is of positive intent and can be used within a syncretic Wiccan practice.

Jim has a BS in Behavioral Science and MS in Health Promotion. He is currently retired. He has worked for the Delaware Division of Public Health, managing the state's HIV Prevention program and was in the fight against HIV/AIDS since 1987. He has provided health and wellness programs for the incarcerated and has worked to investigate and mitigate violations of person and property within the disabilities service system. He has a very wide range of interests that includes, in no specific order: counseling, architecture, design/tinkering, human sexuality, construction, gardening, regular bouts of thinking, media as art and influence, writing, music and singing, and ethical evolution of decent human beings! He lives with his husband of 30+ years, Michael Smith, and their husbank of 5+ years, Andy Keiss, on Herne's Hollow with his wider intentional family at Seelie Court in Georgetown, DE (also known by some as 'The Delaware Daddy Enclave' and 'Our Gayborhood').
