Our Wicca 101 Course Series is offered on a continuous cycle throughout the year and is focused on learning the Wiccan religion and attaining magical skills and competencies. Understanding that spiritual learning and development is a lifelong journey, our hope is that our Wicca 101 Courses lay the foundation for deeper synthesis and understanding of Paganism, Wicca, and Witchcraft as a religious practice, as a magical system, and as a lifestyle. 

 

Led by experienced Pagan ritual leaders, magical practitioners, and devoted clergy, we offer rote material typical of Wiccan first degree training (and beyond!), and invite you to interact with the material, critically, and explore the undercurrents of our basic assumption about Wicca, Witchcraft, and modern Pagan worship and find the “notes in between” what we know and what we dare to dream for our beloved Pagan faith.

 

Our intention for this series is to help you build your understanding of the Wiccan religion, attain magical skills and competencies, and to dig deep into all aspect of “first degree” learning.

 

All Classes are offered for a nominal fee of $30 and are let by knowledgeable and dedicated Pagan clergy, educators, and mentors.

Due to Covid19 all of our open rituals are now being offered online, please use our meetup page link to learn more.

Class 1: Welcome to Wicca!

Date: May 16, 2021

Time: 2:oo p.m. - 5:oo p.m. EST

As the first class in the series, we will set the foundation for our exploration of Wiccan beliefs and ethics by exploring the history of Wicca in the context of other great spiritual traditions and unpack frequently used (and misused) terminology. Students will be invited to think critically about the popular information about Wicca as it is found in the media and around the community and look at the ways in which Wicca is not one path but an evolution of many paths coming together.

Date: August 8, 2021

We will develop our understanding of the classical Freudian and Jungian models of consciousness by touching upon every day states of consciousness such as waking consciousness, sleeping consciousness. We will work with meditative consciousness and visualization to harness magical consciousness by developing the skills to move between states and learn to bring more magical awareness into everyday life and to attune to the magical world.
