WSM I: Sparking the Inner Flame – 2017-2018 – One year, ONLINE Apprenticeship … Starts March 1, 2017! Application period opens in January! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to be placed on the waiting list for an application when available!
Next Class Starts March 1! Application period opens in January! Application deadline is a week prior to the class. Please email email@example.com for an application. This is our 7th WSMI apprenticeship! Watch for our new public Facebook event page.
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.
The application period is open! For a copy of the application, please email Shea at firstname.lastname@example.org. Application deadline is one week prior to March 1.
Homework will be required. There will be an online group component. Class instruction will be provided via online video format, written lessons and photos. 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.
First “virtual” class is March 1, 2017. Each lesson is the first of the month thereafter. All class submissions due by March 1, 2018.
Fun news for our Spirit’s Edge Mystery School Online Apprenticeships! As part of this apprenticeship, you will have the opportunity for three in-person gatherings during the year. These are also offered for our online students as a virtual in-person offering as well. We plan to do these jointly with all WSM apprenticeship classes. These are casual opportunities to hang out with classmates, other Mystery School students and the instructor and/or the teaching assistant to ask questions, discuss homework, your spiritual paths and journeys.
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; the fee will be a $75 deposit with your application, followed by $25 due by the first of each month starting April 1, 2017, with last payment due Feb. 1, 2018 (there is a surcharge with the payment plan). 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)
Books for Class: Though many books will be referenced during the class, the required books include:
Animal-Speak: The Spiritual and Magical Powers of Creatures Great & Small by Ted Andrews
The Four Agreements by don Miguel Ruiz
Inner Temple of Witchcraft and its companion CD (sold separately) by C. Penczak
Kissing the Limitless by T. Thorn Coyle
Natural Witchery by Ellen Dugan
Psychic Self Defense by Dion Fortune
Psychic Vampire Codex by Michelle Belanger and

Of course there will be additional resources and teachings referenced during each class.
There are also WSM II, WSM III apprenticeships that will start on March 1, 2017, along with the first WSM IV apprenticeship beginning Jan. 2017! Prerequisites for WSM II and III are rigorous and require a similar level of study/work equivalent with WSM I and WSM II respectively. Prerequisite for WSM IV is successful completion of WSM III and admittance is based solely at the discretion of the instructor.
I look forward to journeying with you on the path of the Witch, the Shaman and the Mage!
