Village Witchcraft with Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki

The Temple, in cooperation with Moth & Moon Studio, is pleased to offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to study with a renowned elder and scholar: Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki!

Dolores will be offering her “Village Craft” Witchcraft teachings for the very first time here with us in New Hampshire: Friday evening, all-day Saturday and Sunday, and a Saturday evening ritual. Visit the event page for much more, including an outline of planned topics and details about our guest teacher.

Space for this weekend workshop is limited, so please don’t wait to register! Because of the nature of this event and the need to cover the costs for our special guest teacher to visit us from the UK, registration must be pre-paid and no refunds will be available due to cancellation.

Queer Spirit Cafés

For Pride Month, the Temple’s Gemini ministry is pleased to announce it will be offering a monthly “Queer Spirit Café” event on Saturday afternoons at the Temple’s home in Salem, New Hampshire, beginning on July 8th, 2017, from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.

What is a Queer Spirit Café?

The purpose of the Queer Spirit Café is the creation of safe and sacred space for the discussion of LGBTQI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, and intersex—under the general banner of “queer spirit”) topics and issues with relationship to spirituality, particularly neopagan spirituality and Witchcraft. Although facilitated by Temple volunteers, the cafés are informal events and all are welcome, regardless of membership, spiritual practice, or identity. A few key points:

  • The Queer Spirit Café is a safe and affirming space for queer spirit. Prejudice and disrespect will not be tolerated.
  • Anyone is welcome, regardless of how they identity, and no one is asked to disclose or proclaim their gender or sexual orientation, if they do not wish to do so.
  • Similarly, the event is offered for the community. You do not need to be a Temple member to attend. Although discussion will often focus on queer spirit as it is expressed and experienced through the Temple’s theology and practices, we welcome respectful outside views.
  • Attendees must be 18 years old or older, please.

At the café, we’ll have introductions, discussion topics, opportunities to speak and ask questions in safe space, and some light refreshments to share along with good company. For further information or to confirm your intention to attend, please email gemini@templeofwitchcraft.org, or simply drop by!

Temple founder, teacher, and High Priest Adam Sartwell will be offering the Temple Mystery School’s Witchcraft I and Witchcraft II year-long classes at The Robin’s Nest in Bellingham, Massachusetts, starting this October, 2017. Registration is open through the shop by calling 508-244-4881 or emailing therobinsnestma@gmail. Registration will run until late September, right before the classes begin. This is an excellent opportunity for students in the greater Massachusetts area to embark upon the Temple’s complete five-year Mystery School course.

A year-long in-person apprenticeship of Witchcraft III: The Shamanic Temple with High Priestess Silver Lyons is now open for registration. Classes will be held in Salem, NH, starting in October of 2017.

Reclaim the shamanic ancestry of the Witch using both European and core shamanic journeying techniques to travel the middle, upper and lower reams of the shaman’s world tree. Focusing on the element of water as the gateway to the spirit realm, learn to reflect on your inner emotions and dive deep to heal your past. Learn techniques to further your relationship with your shadow self.

See the Witchcraft III class page for details and online registration form. Email cancer@templeofwitchcraft.org with questions about the course.
