Meet Our Elders

By High Priest Cianaodh Óg a.k.a. Troy Young

My Pagan (Craft or Magickal) name is Cianaodh Óg (Key – Ah – Knee – Some say Kenny) which is Old Irish for AncientFire and (Og – with a long O), also Old Irish for Young or my modern English surname. Yes, I do appreciate the irony of having a name that begins with Ancient and ends with Young. I am the High Priest of Tribe Of the Standing Stones which is a member of the Spirit Of the Sycamore Tradition.

I have been an ordained Universal Life Church Minister since January, 4th, 2001 as well as having been initiated as a 1st degree priest and witch of the Alexandrian Tradition of Wicca in June of 2002. I also served as Grove Organizer for a local A.D.F. ( Ár nDraíocht Féin ) Druid protogrove for a couple of years while studying with that tradition. I have been active in the Dallas / Fort Worth Pagan community in some fashion or another since the late 1990s including a couple of past Community Centers (Betwixt & Between in Dallas and Ancient Traditions in Grand Prairie), Amy Martin and Earth Rhythms’ Winter Solstice Celebrations (I was The Boogeyman for a few years). I once hosted two previous study groups in the area (Pagan Mediterranean Study Group or PagMed for short in the early 2000s and DFW Pantheons around 2006 to 2007 which was more of a social group). I have also helped with DFW Pagan Pride Day occasionally over the years in various capacities from building and maintaining a website a few times for them, serving as a Promotional Coordinator on the planning committee and once as a Local Co-Coordinator. I attained my 3rd degree priesthood from the Esoteric Path of Enlightenment tradition which derived itself from the Correllian tradition and I am additionally a member of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids studying my Bardic grade materials.

As a community service I offer handfastings, house and item cleansing and blessings, counseling, etc. and only ask to be compensated for any travel or materials expenses I might incur. But please understand that I have only so much time I can devote to such work and can not always fill everyone’s needs. I will try to help all that I can however.

We also have a High Priestess named Wahya and a second High Priest named Ta’li Seabhac who have trained with me up their degrees in Spirit Of the Sycamore tradition and help tremendously with the events and projects of our tribe.
