Walk the path of the Moon through this thirteen lesson class presented by Christopher Penczak and the Temple of Witchcraft’s Sagittarius Ministry. Weaving together many strands of wisdom concerning the lore of the Moon, the course provides a framework of personal evolution and transformation, working the mystery of change, waxing and waning, building and releasing, and opening the gate of the Moon to that which dwells in unseen territories.

Understand the various lunar cycles, including the cycle of waxing and waning in four quarters and eight sections, the twentieth day month, and the pattern of New Moon and Full Moon Signs in relationship to the year. Beyond any intellectual framework, feel deeply and intuitively the blessings and challenges of the Moon.

Each lesson is rooted in folk names of the Moon, looking at regional variations and how these seasonal folk names relate to the New and Full Moon cycle. Lessons include:

  • MP4 Video Recordings of Lectures and Pathworking Meditations

Online Community Support via optional private Facebook group to share your experiences, explorations, and photos for Students of the Class Only. Students are not required to partake in the Class Discussion on Facebook.

$200 class fee for the entire course. A Temple of Witchcraft Blue Ray continuing education program, counting as 3 CEUs for ordained ministers. Unlike degree mystery school courses, there is no mandatory homework to report, but a community sharing of ideas and experiences. Those ordained ministers seeking CEU accreditation will be asked to submit a paper on their experience at the end of the year.

As fundamental ritual and trance skills are expected, and a basic knowledge of modern Witchcraft is necessary, including altars, elements, deities, and potion craft, completion of Witchcraft II or higher recommended (materials and skills in The Outer Temple of Witchcraft) but not required if you have equivalent experience.

Monthly Course Materials will be posted monthly in Google Classroom, including PDF lesson and link to downloadable mp4 video of lecture and meditation. Students can ask questions and share experiences in the classroom as much or as little as they wish.
