The Witchcraft, Shamanism & Magick online, one-year apprenticeships (I-V) begin March 1 of each year, with a few exceptions for upper level classes IV-V. The application period opens in mid-January every year. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be placed on the waiting list for an application when available for the next apprenticeship class. Here is the information on WSM I: Sparking Your Inner Flame. Please visit the Spirit’s Edge Shamonial Temple’s website for more details.
Witchcraft, Shamanism & Magick I is not like most introductory courses and is not centered on casting spells. Rather, it is a spiritual approach that will provide the deep foundation needed to build a powerful and effective magickal practice. You will learn easy but powerful relaxation techniques, develop your psychic skills, learn how to shift consciousness and tap into your full potential, discover synchronicities and messages from Spirit, how to create a simple sacred space to begin your inner work, how to work with energy, astral travel, cleanse your aura and balance your chakras. You will also learn about psychic self defense, psychic healing, spirit guide contact and many more powerful techniques.
Intensive homework will be required in an independent study format. There will be an online group component. Class instruction will be provided via online video format, written lessons and photos and is directed self-study with mentoring. Class will culminate in your personal Year & A Day Initiation Ritual to mark your completion of Witchcraft I. Please note that ultimately no one can make you a Witch, a Shaman or a Mage – it is between your Higher Self and the Gods.
Dates: First “virtual” class is March 1. A new lesson begins the first of each month. Last lesson begins on Feb. 1. The last lesson submission and your A Year & A Day Initiation Ritual due by Feb. 28 of the following year.
Cost: Course investment is $300 if paying in advance for the full year of 12 classes. Payment schedules may be arranged on a case by case basis and are based solely on financial need; the fee will be a $75 deposit with your application, followed by $25 due by the first of each month starting April 1, with last payment due February 1 of the following year. Certificates of completion will be mailed after final homework and ritual experience is submitted and upon receipt of final payment. Each class builds on the other, so this is a year-long series/class. (cash or check only please; paypal available for a 3% surcharge)
