Rick Silfies Potter has been a witch and Celtic mystic for 30 years. He is the author of two books, “Walking a Magic Path” and “The Noble Art of Divination: A Journal for Tarot & Oracle Decks“. He has served as High Priest of several magical groups and is a member of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids. In 2013, Rick founded the House of Blackthorn, a training program that blends Witchcraft with Celtic Paganism and Druid Philosophy. The House of Blackthorn was re-named the Blackthorn Druid Order in 2019.
Rick has taught both publicly and privately for several years, on various topics related to Witchcraft and Magic. He is a regular guest speaker at pagan events and festivals, where he shares the mysteries of druid witchcraft. Aside from training students in the Order, Rick offers other services to the community. These include tarot and oracle readings, Magical Reiki, spell candles, ritual oils and incense, Witch Bottles and Healing the Three Cauldrons (an energy healing technique based on ancient Celtic text). Rick lives in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania and is a devotee of Cerridwen, the Witch-Mother-Goddess of Welsh origin.
