Witchy – Part 1
Witchy Part 1 is the first of 5 parts which starts by exploring the very basics of Wicca and its evolution throughout history. Witchcraft has been practised for centuries and is one of the oldest religions, yet even in these modern times so much mystery still seems to surround its philosophies and practices. These courses explore Wicca, the modern term for Witchcraft in its entirety, starting with the basic major principles and teachings and layering from there. The workshops combine a mixture of talks, meditations and visualizations with the opportunity to touch and experience first-hand many of the tools used in a Wiccan ritual. The workshops also allow the students to work through and practice each section before moving on. Please note that all students wishing to do the in-person training must start with Witchy Part 1 irrespective of how much prior knowledge they already have. Courses must be done in order except when choosing the option of online training where you can pick and choose what modules to study.
The in-person training is currently being run both via Zoom and in person (based in Eccles, Manchester). It consists of five, 2-day workshops (Witchy Parts 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5) which have been designed to cover the fundamentals of Wicca from the essential basics through to setting up sacred space and preparing for a ritual to Candle Magick, writing spells, Spell Casting and the making of many products that you can use as part of your ritual preparations.
The online modules run in line with the in-person training courses and work from the same manual. The main difference between the in-person and online training is that obviously with the online training, I am not there with you offering in-depth explanations and examples. What I have done is create movies that will walk you through each module. Module 1 (Witchy Part 1) has 42 movies which cover the entire manual, please note that exercises can morph and change slightly in a live environment depending on attendees and questions asked.
