Starhawk is an initiate of Victor Anderson. There are elements of Faerie
in the Reclaiming work. There is information about the tradition -as well
as contact inf- at the COG web site.

Blessed Be

What, something the Great Tyagi doesn't know? ;-)

Yes, Starhawk was trained by Victor Anderson, who lives in a suburb of 
San Francisco. This Faery Wicca or Feri trad (the spelling keeps 
changing) is loosely connectly with the mythology of the Sidhe.

An even looser and otherwise unrelated connection to the Sidhe comes 
through the Radical Faerie movement (everything *but* the spelling keeps 
changing), which is for gay or feminist men attempting to change gneder 
paradigms as pert of their magickal work. The S&M branch of this 
movement are the Leather Wing Faeries, which also includes women.

Are you confused yet? Thee's more in the winter (current) issue of 
_Green Egg_.

Victor's wife of 50 years, Cora, has a lovely booklet out titled _Fifty 
Years in the Feri Tradition_.

Thank you for highlighting the difference!
