Effigy is co-owned by H.P. Rev. Mark and H.P.'s Donna who, after finding one another years ago, realized they have been true friends/partners for a great many past lifetimes and now have an inseparable life and committed path with one another. Effigy is our tribute to the old ways of true Witchcraft. While we each practice our witchcraft from two separate and different paths, we find that they cross and balance one another completely and perfectly. We share a vision for ourselves and for our witch brothers and sisters to be able to find and utilize the tools, supplies and guidance we all need to practice our craft. You will also find that almost 90% of our items and supplies are unique, custom and one-of-a-kind that represent the lighter side of our personalities.
Rev. Mark is Effigy's Magus and H.P. and is one of the very select, few formally trained witches who resides in Connecticut. He was educated in his witchcraft in Salem and is an Ordained Third Degree Initiated High Priest of the Cabot Tradition of Witchcraft and the Cabot-Kent Hermetic Temple, where he was personally trained and mentored by H.P.'s Dame Rev. Laurie Cabot, one of the most famous witches in the world and The Official Witch of Salem, Mass. He is also a graduate in Italian Witchcraft (Stregheria) from Raven and Stephanie Grimassi's College of the Crossroads. Mark is available for Handfastings, Wiccanings, Cronings and Passings, as well as Spiritual Counseling/Life Coaching, all for nominal fees. He is also an expert in demonology, paranormal/psychic research and possession/exorcism and has traveled the country investigating internationally known cases for the past 36 years.
Donna is Effigy's H.P.'s and is an eclectic shamanic witch who practices herbal and crystal majick and has been involved in witchcraft since she was 12. In addition to offering a full apothecary, Donna gives , which include a personalized mojo bag of a combination of herbs, oils, resins, roots and stones, specific to your reading. She also specializes in healing spells, both for humans and animals. Readings are available, preferably by appointment . Walk-ins are welcome based on availability.
We both, in our own special ways, have to express our deep love, respect and utmost gratitude to Mark's High Priestess, the Rev. H.P.'s Laurie Cabot, without whose dedication, devotion and tenacity over the last 60 years would not have made this venture of ours possible. Let none of us ever forget what She has done . . . we love you Laurie!
