Due to the unusually high volume of applications for the March 2021 session, exceeding the number of positions in the class, we are planning to close registration for the online session of Witchcraft I: The Inner Temple earlier this year, by the end of November 2020, to give us time to process all of the applications.
We limit the number of people in this already very large class because there is required monthly homework where each student is paired with a mentor and/or teaching assistant who offers feedback. We are looking for students up to the challenge of such work and interested in progressing through the system and potentially being involved in the greater community of the Temple of Witchcraft. Please realize that if you are not serious about the work, you could be taking a space away from someone who is. If you haven’t read about the general ethos of our Mystery School, please visit the Education page of our website and read about it in detail.
If you have some prior experience and are not looking for the pace of a monthly homework-required degree course, please check out our Mysteries of the Wheel of the Year course. We’ll also be reopening the Path of the Moon course for next spring. These are low-pressure, go at your own pace classes. While filled with meditations, exercises, and rituals, nothing is required to be submitted for review.
The Temple also offers a variety of one-time events, festivals, rituals, and short series classes available at various times on our website, social media, and newsletter. We try to accommodate various levels of learning and committment. If you are ready for a long-term course with monthly accountability, we look forward to your application before registration closes. If you have applied and have not yet sent in your deposit, please do so, or your application won’t be processed. If you are not accepted, your deposit will be returned. If you have applied, but have not heard back from us, please be patient, as we have a lot of applications to process!
Thank you so much and we are looking forward to the next year together in the Temple Mystery School.

Please visit the Mystery School page of the website or the individual class pages for details, dates, and links to the online application forms.
Also, please note that these in-person classes, like the Temple’s other classes and events may initially take place online (via Zoom video conferencing) or require pandemic precautions such as masks and social distancing when and if they do take place in-person, as needed to ensure the safety of the participants and community.
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 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.
