The Spirit’s Edge Shamonial Tradition and Temple brings together both shamanism and ceremonial magick in the context of Witchcraft. It merges teachings, breaks boundaries, bringing these concepts into a cohesive whole. It is a tradition not easily pigeonholed into one thing or the other. It also is a tradition that honors all traditions and that honors and welcomes all seekers.

Shea offers Witchcraft, Shamanism & Magick Online One Year Apprenticeships (levels I-V) in the Spirit’s Edge Mystery School.

She teaches metaphysical classes at The Center for Mind, Body and Spirit and offers Witchcraft and shamanic classes, individual teaching and meditation sessions, shamanic healings and readings via phone appointments. On occasion she offers classes in her magickal space The Witch’s Croft. She also writes this blog, Thoughts on the Edge by Shea Morgan at Spirit’s Edge, which you can follow HERE. You can follow her on Twitter HERE.

She has been a student of all things spiritual throughout her life, always seeking to answer the question of “why” and discover the mysteries of the universe – a curiosity that has continued since childhood. She has been on the path of the Shaman, Witch and Mage officially since 2000.

In addition to her extensive studies listed above, she also has attended miscellaneous classes and/or seminars by Ted Andrews, don Miguel Ruiz, don Jose Ruiz, Dorothy Morrison, Judika Illes, and many more.
