Many witchcraft practices are influenced by the traditions of high magick, a ceremonial tradition of magick focused on communion with the divine through the study of correspondences and models of the universe. Many of our modern Wiccan ancestors were also ceremonial magicians, and the grimoires of medieval magicians have undoubtedly influenced our own Books of Shadows.
Explore the art and science of Witchcraft through the lens of modern ritual magick. Focusing on the element of Air as the overall tone for the fourth degree, work with different models of magickal understanding and communication. Drawing from the influences of Hermetic philosophy and Qabalistic lore, work deeply to balance the four elements within, finding the inner sacred tools of the stone, cup, sword and spear. Climb the ten spheres of the Tree of Life, exploring the magickal correspondences of each through color, scent, angel, god, planet and pathworking. Learn to adapt Ceremonial Magick rituals such as the pentagram protection rites to a Witch’s perspective. Understand your own unique perspective of the universe and create your own Map of Reality. The Temple of High Witchcraft is the required textbook for course, and the Temple of High Witchcraft CD Companion is the required audio.
The year long course fuses material from The Temple of High Witchcraft (required reading) with previously unreleased rituals and meditations, in the form of the Temple’s Book of Shadows. Witchcraft III is the previous requirement. Students are expected to complete and turn in all required homework assignments.
Students with any issues or questions regarding class material can write directly to the Sagittarius lead minister at firstname.lastname@example.org.
