New Class Offerings

In addition to our new in-person and online Mystery School classes now open for registration, the Temple is pleased to announce the following new class offerings:

The Mysteries of the Wheel of the Year, online with Christopher Penczak: In this year-long class, go deeper into the soul and spirit world through the Turning of the Wheel of the Year. Examine specific mystical teachings involving the approach towards the Wheel found in the Temple of Witchcraft, yet adaptable and inspiring for your own personal practice and traditions. Class begins November 2020.

Uniting Our Archetypes, online and in-person with JT Mouradian: In this series of classes we will explore four archetypes of mature masculinity. We will delve the concepts of the Sovereign, the Warrior, the Magician, and the Lover as four elements that, when combined in due measure, produce men of great value. Class begins January 2021.

The Queer Mysteries, online with Erica Baron: Dive into the Queer Mysteries through this 11 month online class. Queerness and Witchcraft have many points of connection, from the creativity that comes from a spirit of transgression, to the insight available from an outsider position, to the magick of speaking truth about ourselves and our experiences. Class begins January 2021.

Kitchen Witchery & Crafting for the Home, online with Karen Ainsworth: Each class in this nine-month series will seek to connect us with Gods, Goddesses, and seasonal spirits, and will include recipes for foods, medicines, self-care remedies, gifts for others, as well as crafts and ideas for the home. Class begins May 2021.

Be on the lookout for more exciting learning opportunities from the Temple and its teachers in the year to come!

Healing Case Study Group

Healing Case Coordinator David Erwin

Healing Case Coordinator David Erwin

The Healing Case Study Group, part of the Temple of Witchcraft’s Virgo Ministry, started in 2011 to give Temple initiates a forum to develop their skills with psychic diagnosis and to practice sending the healing techniques learned in the Mystery School and Seminary.

We follow the Lunar cycle, starting a new case each New Moon. Members perform a psychic diagnosis and send healing to the subject. At the Full Moon the information shared by the subject is shared so members can compare their results, as well as encourage each other by posting in a Google Group. We then schedule a Group Healing for the subject.

Membership to the Healing Cases Study Group is open to any Temple initiate (graduate of Witchcraft 1) and is renewable on an annual basis. Aside from interest in developing this skill, there are two main requirements: strict confidentiality and active participation.

If this ministry interests or intrigues you, please email coordinator David Erwin at Don’t worry if you’re “not very good at this”…that is why this group was started, to practice and deepen your magickal healing practices!

TempleFest 2020 Moved Online

From the announcement on the TempleFest site:

“When we announced that TempleFest would be held this year as planned, we had the highest hopes that the pandemic would be better controlled and our community would be able to come together safely to celebrate and reconnect. Unfortunately this is not the case. There is no way that we can ensure that everyone coming to TempleFest is 100% Covid-19 free. Even one person in the close quarters that we share in workshops, dorms and cafeteria could infect the majority of our community over the four days. This is not an acceptable risk to us. The health of every member of our community is too important to us for us to take the chance of someone contracting Covid-19.

TempleFest online will be held on August 22nd and 23rd. Over the two days, we’ll have a marketplace that will showcase our vendors, (because what’s TempleFest without something special from the crafts-people that you love), ten workshops, a ritual and a keynote address.”

Please see the TempleFest site for more details and stay-tuned for more news about TempleFest 2020 online!

Now that you have developed your third eye and opened up your seer abilities from all three classes, we will each be given four rites that have been passed down from our great indigenous masters and by our wisdom-keepers. We will become our own personal healers and magicians, healing our past karmic and genetic inheritances by raising our luminescent field of energy.

Join Christine Krauss, a high priestess with the Temple of Witchcraft and owner of The Crow’s Healing Nest, for the next level of psychic development in June of 2020.

Visit the Psychic Development 104 class page for details and online registration!

TaurusCelebrate Earth Day with the Temple! Join team ToW Earth Stewards and fight climate change in the Drawdown Ecochallenge!

In preparation for Earth Day on April 22, Taurus Ministry would like to encourage Temple members to participate in this year’s month-long Drawdown Ecochallenge so that we can collectively fight climate change. This is a great way to stay engaged, especially if you are feeling disconnected while socially distancing.

Drawdown Ecochallenge provides actions we can take to fight climate change, separated into categories such as Food, Transportation, and Social Justice. And there are plenty of activities that can be done at home while we remain compliant to social distancing. For every action a person completes or friend they refer, they win points for our team! This is a fun way to get involved in a little friendly competition towards a good cause.

The challenge begins on April 1 and lasts until April 30. Click this link to join our team!
