Degarrin originated with an open study group of like-minded individuals who were interested in studying pagan religions and the psychic sciences; the groundwork for this began in 1995.

Eventually, several study group members decided to establish a more formal system for learning, growing, and assisting the community. With the Divine's guidance, they accomplished this goal by creating Degarrin on October 31, 1997.

As the Coven advanced, its members discovered a need for a different type of structure and leadership. Based on this need, Degarrin recreated itself with a new vision. It was at this time that the Coven implemented the use of Clans, established a Seminary for its members, and created ministerial positions. All of these changes provided a way for the Coven's vision to be more easily realized.
