Dynion Mwyn

Our Beliefs

Dynion Mwyn has a statement of beliefs which is only a small portion of their belief system. Similar beliefs can be found among a number of other pagan religions. Among their beliefs, they believe that every Witch should welcome sincere cooperation with other traditions of the Craft and other religions. They accept several basic principles:[21] (With permission.)

ʶ They believe all of nature is a Sacred manifestation of the Great Spirit, where all things seek balance and are interconnected. The Goddess and God are a personification of this Great Spirit and are incarnate in the soul of each human.

ʶ They believe because there are so many spiritual paths, each person must find their own way, searching for the deity in whatever form it may manifest. We respect all such attempts to find spiritual enlightenment.

ʶ They believe they should respect all life-affirming teachings and traditions, and seek to learn from all and to share their learning within the Grove.

ʶ They believe their God and Goddess is in all things. The Great Spirit shows itself as the female principle of ecstasy, fertility and creation: The Lady (or the Goddess) of Nature and the Earth; and the male principle of procreation: The Lord (or the God) of the Sun and the Hunt (which are only a few of their aspects).

ʶ They believe they should offer love and spiritual dedication to the Divine Earth Goddess and the Celestial God. The confirm a dynamic balance between female and male deities honored and/or invoked at every ceremony and encourage a gender balance within the priest/esshood. They communicate directly with and relate to their God and Goddess and with the Elemental realms on a personal level.

ʶ They believe Magick is a viable tool to bring about change in their lives as well as the things around them, ever remembering the Law of Threefold Return, that whatever is sent forth, returns threefold; therefore they believe in a form of Karmic law which reminds them that their actions affect everything, and retribution comes from the Law of the Gods.

ʶ They believe the Soul is eternal and all the children of the Gods Reincarnate, but the form of the Reincarnation may vary depending upon the spiritual maturity of the individual and whether he or she wishes to follow his or her soul’s pathway.

ʶ They believe Nature and Spirit are linked…that without this relationship there is disharmony and imbalance.

ʶ They believe it is necessary to have a respect and love for Nature which is divine in her own right and to accept themselves and all humans as a part of Nature and not as her “rulers.”

ʶ They believe they must honor the four sacred elements: Earth, Air, Fire and Water…and believe that no one can own them or use them for their own personal gain.

ʶ They believe every living and non-living thing are a part of the Great Spirit; the animals, humans, forests, mountains, lakes, fields, rocks, and soil. They believe that all living creatures are the children of the God and the Goddess and have a spiritual as well as a physical existence.

ʶ They believe the human body is a beautiful work of nature, therefore, sometimes their rituals and festivals are conducted in a naked and natural state showing respect for and identity with the Earth Mother.

ʶ They believe when a seeker is initiated, the seeker is joined spiritually, mentally and physically with the Dynion Mwyn tradition. Prior to initiation the seeker receives a comprehensive knowledge of Dynion Mwyn heritage, lineage, history, philosophy, and religion.

ʶ They believe it is possible for Initiation to give the seeker a true realization of a Oneness with the God and Goddess, the Lord and Lady. They believe this is Enlightenment and should be the ultimate goal of Initiation as well as the result of your spiritual evolution.

ʶ They believe you should respect Nature, the Gods, the Old Ones, your parents, and your ancestors in the Religion.

ʶ They believe Rituals are a celebration of religion, recognizing the cycles of the Moon and the turning of the seasons. We thus become attuned to Nature, bringing us closer to the natural rhythm of life.

ʶ They believe intelligence gives us a unique responsibility toward our environment. They seek to live in harmony with Nature, in ecological balance offering fulfillment to life and consciousness within an evolutionary concept. They consider ecological awareness and activism to be sacred duties.

ʶ They believe in a depth of power far greater than is apparent to the average person. Because it is far greater than ordinary, it is sometimes called “supernatural,” but they see it as a natural potential existing within all people.

ʶ They believe in a Creative Power in the Universe as manifesting through polarity – as masculine and feminine – and that this same creative Power lives in all people, and functions through the interaction of the masculine and feminine. They value neither above the other, knowing each to be supportive of the other. They value sexuality as pleasure, as the symbol and embodiment of Life, and as one of the sources of energies used in Magical practice and religious worship.

ʶ They believe in both the outer worlds and the inner, or psychological worlds – sometimes known as the OtherWorld, Spiritual World, the Collective Unconscious, the Inner Planes, etc. – and they see in the interaction of these two dimensions the basis for paranormal phenomenon and Magical exercises. They neglect neither dimension for the other, seeing both as necessary for their fulfillment.

ʶ They believe that we must honor those who teach, respect those who share their greater knowledge and wisdom, and acknowledge those who have courageously given of themselves in leadership.

ʶ They believe that religion, Magick, and wisdom-in-living are united in the way one views the world and lives within it – a world view and a philosophy of life, which they identify as Witchcraft or the Witches Way.

ʶ They believe that calling oneself “Witch” does not make one a Witch – but neither does heredity itself, or the collecting of titles, degrees, and initiations. A Witch seeks to control the forces within him/herself that makes life possible in order to live wisely and well, without harm to others, and in harmony with Nature.

ʶ They believe Dynion Mwyn philosophy is the affirmation and fulfillment of life, in a continuation of evolution and development of consciousness, that gives meaning to the Universe we know, and to our personal role within it.

ʶ They believe Christianity, and other religious institutions which have claimed to be “the one true right and only way”, have sought to deny freedom to others and to suppress other ways of religious practices and belief. They reject this idea and accept that there is no one true way; that each individual must find the way that is right for them.

ʶ They believe as Witches, they are not threatened by debates on the history of the Craft, the origins of various terms, the legitimacy of various aspects of different traditions. They are concerned with the present, and the future.

ʶ They believe there is no “absolute evil,” nor do they worship any entity known as “Satan” or “the Devil” as defined by Christian or other tradition. They do not seek power through the suffering of others, nor do they accept the concept that personal benefits can only be derived by denial to another and They believe Witches must work within Nature for that which is contributory to health and well-being.
