Tintalle Foxwood is a Clinical Herbalist, artist, traditional Celtic Witch of the Foxwood Temple of the Old Religion, and a long time apprentice and practioner of Faery Seership. One of Tintalleí s first jobs after leaving the United States Army did not offer health insurance- igniting her journey into herbal medicine. Since then she abandoned her pursuit of becoming a psychologist and planted seeds to become an herbalist. She holds a Masterís of Science in Therapeutic Herbalism from the Maryland University of Integrative Health (formerly known as Tai Sophia) as well as a Post Masterís Certificate in Clinical Herbalism. A permaculturalist, Tintalle is committed to using and working with locally grown, ethically harvested herbs wherever possible. She is a firm believer in herbal medicine as the peopleís medicine, honoring the inherent wisdom of herbs in supporting the body and our ancestral connections to earth based healing. Tintalle integrates her practice with her connections to the natural world.

Who We Are
Keepers of the Holly Chalice is a Wiccan coven based in North-Central Maryland. We draw from many sources for our rituals, celebrations, and magick, with a focus on Celtic lore, Astrology, and Qabala. We are members of the Assembly of the Sacred Wheel which arose from our beginnings in 1984 and later became incorporated as a Wiccan tradition. The Assembly currently has eleven covens ranging from Southern Delaware to Northern New Jersey and westward to the outskirts of Washington, D.C. As a service to the community, we sponsor a number of open circles, workshops, and social gatherings each year. Most of our activities are in or around Northern Maryland.. More…
