Congregation of the Oaks
ｩ 2011 COTO | Template design by Andreas Viklund
The Congregation of the Oaks (COTO) is a congregation of likeminded people who follow The Way also called The Old Path. We are a Wayest Congregation, and see our path as our way of life and our spiritual journey.
You will find The Way in many cultures, from the Norse, Teutonic, Britannic and Gaelic, Celts, and others all over Europe to even the Americas. In the New world it is known as Mountain Way, Holler Way, Peoples Way, Warrior's Way and the Peaceful Way. To most The Way is simply a philosophy of life. In COTO our clergy are following a druidic study. Therefore we have Ovates, Bards and Druids to call on. Only the Priest are actually called Druids, but our clergy are all capable of handling their duties at their levels. Our congregation is composed of others not following the druidic teachings but still very much of like mind and in beliefs, much like shamanism. We celebrant the Wheel of the Year in our Rituals, fellowship with Drumming Circles and have classes on Sundays to teach the virtues of The Way. We of COTO strive to live each day by our beliefs and philosophy, honoring our Ancestors, Loved Ones and Gods. We walk the OLD PATH known as THE WAY!
