Class Description

Witches are often known as “walkers between worlds” acting as a bridge between the physical world and the spiritual, to bring healing and balance to both. Before you can heal others, you must embrace your own healing path.

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.

Topics include alignment with the three selves, spirit allies, working with the totem/fetch/familiar, animal and plant spirit medicine, past life healing, soul healing and communion with the Dark Goddess. The Temple of Shamanic Witchcraft is the required text book for the course, and the Temple of Shamanic Witchcraft CD Companion is the required audio. This year long course fuses material from The Temple of Shamanic Witchcraft with previously unreleased rituals and meditation, in the form of the Temple’s Book of Shadows. Students are expected to complete and turn in required homework assignments.

Students with any issues or questions regarding class material can write directly to the Sagittarius lead minister at sagittarius@templeofwitchcraft.org.
