are loose tissue beneath the skin. The tissue may be manipulated surgically so that the two buds become fused together and grow out as a single massive horn perpendicular to the forehead. The procedure is performed with local anesthetic.
The Zells created several unicorns, including pets Lancelot and Bedivere, and made appearances at Pagan festivals and medieval fairs. In 1984, they signed a contract to lease four unicorns to Ringling Brothers/Barnum and Bailey Circus. The animals caused a great deal of controversy and were denounced by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), an accusation some consider ironic, as the Zells are animal lovers and volunteers for a wildlife rescue organization. Under the terms of their contract, the Zells were prohibited from publicly discussing the unicorns for a number of years.
Another ERA project was an expedition in 1985 to search for ri, unknown sea creatures associated with legends of the mermaids off the coast of Papua New Guinea. They discovered ri is the local term for dugong, a type of marine mammal, and concluded that the mermaid legends relate to dugongs.
In 1978, CAW merged with Nemeton, the Pagan organization founded by Pendderwen and Alison Harlow, and Nemeton became CAW's publishing arm. In 1987, CAW also absorbed Forever Forests, another of Pendderwen's organizations. Annwfn, Pendderwen's 55-acre land in Mendocino County, was deeded to CAW, which operates it as a wilderness retreat. Lifeways, a teaching order founded and directed by ANODEA Judith (past president of CAW), is no longer active. It was an outgrowth of Forever Forests and focused on healing, bodywork, magic, psychic development, dance, ritual, music and religion.
Another subsidiary is the Holy Order of Mother Earth (HOME), a group of individuals dedicated to magical living and working with the land.
CAWmunity, located in Brushwood, New York, is a campsite in Fairy Woods for CAW members and friends who are attending the Starwood and Sirius Rising Pagan festivals.
