In 1999, a group of Initiates in Hermetism met with Raymond Buckland to unveil the mysteries of the Wicca. This first encounter was in the Official Seax-Wica of yahoogroups. Our people shared a lot with others gesiths in that group, and we checked that a lot of matters of hermetism are relate with the practice of Wica by Buckland. On 2001, seven members decided perform the self-dedication and become in Seax-Wica(n)s. In those times, all communication was by e-mail, a couple of Seax-Wica(n)s from New York, USA, planned their trip to Perú on february 2002. Ethan and Sofia Lauber did tourism and met with the Circle of AU – Thot´s Scribes Hermetic Order. In this long meetings between Initiates, they conclued that was necessary do the Initiation by them, because is the way in hermetic tradition, and they had a connection with Raymond Buckland for the formation that they had. In this way on May, 1st 2001, the seven members was Initiated by the Laubers and the first Priest was known as Mars and the first Priestess was known as Roselynn in the country of Perú.
