President/High Priestess - Syleena
Syleena was born in the multicultural city of Seattle. She feels have very lucky to to have grown up in a place where she always felt free to practice her path, no matter what the path may have been at that time. Her hereditary background is very mixed, but mostly of Norse and American Indian (Chippewa Turtle Mountain Band) heritage. Both sides of her genealogy share familial and ancestral magic and clairvoyance. Though her mother is a Roman Catholic and father a Lutheran to Catholic convert – there was no denying the strong pull of clairvoyance that seeped through the gene line. She spent many years of her youth trying to make sense of things that she could see and feel that no one else could.
From then she walked many religious paths and ended up settling in Wicca by the age of twenty-five. British Traditional Wicca felt the most comfortable to her. She started to dabble in Tarot at the age of twenty and began giving tarot readings professionally soon after.
From there her path fell before her and she landed under the wing of some of the best Witches of our time. In 2017 Syleena started Triple Goddess Coven with a few Witchlings and received the church’s federal 501c3 non-profit church status the same year. Syleena has always wanted to be a spiritual mother to many and opted out of having children. She is completely fulfilled with her church, her amazing brother and sister, and two beautiful nieces. Her life’s mission is to create the first brick and mortar Wiccan Church in her community.
When Syleena is not being magical, she is the Lead Laboratory Assistant of the very hospital in which she was born. She processes specimens and draws blood from people on a very mundane non-sacrificial level. She also loves animals and hopes to pet a tiger someday…without getting eaten.
Vice President - Aura
Aura was born and raised in Tacoma, Washington. She grew up in a pagan household and was raised by a dynamic force of awesome women – her mother and grandmother. She has been looking for community for many years and has found a spiritual home in Triple Goddess Coven. She holds a Bachelors degree in Business Administration from Pacific Lutheran University and is part owner of a successful lawn care and landscaping company.
Aura joined TGC in January 2018 and earned her First Degree. Soon after she stepped into the role of Vice President. Aura helps write and conduct Triple Goddess Coven’s public rituals, is responsible for food and drink at the annual Witches’ Ball, helps with public outreach, and supports the High Priestess (president) as needed.
When she is not helping the church, she is sewing clothing out of vintage sheets, traveling with her family, and enjoying her pet chickens. She also follows the High Priestess around and feeds her crackers and water – mostly because no one likes a dead or whiny High Priestess.
Secretary - Serenity
Serenity was born in Tukwilla, Washington and raised in Edgewood, Washington. Her mother immigrated from Costa Rica to the USA, married, and began a successful family business. With strong Latino parents. Serenity was raised speaking Spanish and English. Her life long dream was to bring communities together and transform them through story telling, so she auditioned for Ithaca College’s Theatre Art program and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting.
Serenity felt she was a witch her entire life, but having been raised in a strict Roman Catholic household, was never able to truly pursue her calling until her thirties, when she and her husband bought their own home, and she had a safe space to explore and practice her true beliefs and spiritual interests.
In 2017 Serenity joined Triple Goddess Coven. She earned her first degree and became the Church’s secretary soon after. She is grateful to have found a community where she can merge her passion as a professional theatre artist, educator, and earth based spiritual practitioner. Her hopes are to continue to serve Triple Goddess Coven as secretary and to help produce public rituals in an effort to continue to provide meaningful, creative and enlightening experiences for members of our community.
She hopes every magickal working she generates will enrich, inspire and encourage deeper spiritual engagement for every participant.
Together, we can honor our ancestors, honor our beloved Gaia, honor the divinity within ourselves, and choose to live more harmoniously as a people connected to all of Mother Nature and our goddesses’ many generous blessings.
When Serenity is not recording events and details for Triple Goddess Coven she is helping her mother run the family business and memorizing Shakespeare. She also likes bunnies…a lot.
Peridot - Treasurer
Peridot Winkler was born in Auburn, and grew up in the South Puget Sound region. She was raised Lutheran by a fairly generic but loving family, and severed ties with organized religion by college. She spent most of her childhood and early adulthood pondering various religions and philosophies, before turning rather Epicurean. She is a strange mixture of pragmatism and fantasy, with an obsession over human nature. Much of her early explorations away from Christianity were Pagan, Daoist, and Buddhist.
When given the chance to join Triple Goddess Coven, Peridot got to live out a lost dream. Making her way to her First Degree gave her a chance to reclaim much of her former spiritual life. She is particularly drawn to the act of ritual, supplication, and altered states. She currently serves as the Coven Treasurer, making no more than 7 mathematical errors per annum.
By day she inspects flight structural airplane parts, so your wings won’t fall off mid-flight. By night, Peri enjoys reading, writing, eating, traveling, fashion, socializing, witchcraft, and tasting the flavors of life. Ironically, her lifelong dream is to one day become a mad scientist.
