Witchcraft, Shamanism & Magick III - Shamanism & Embracing Your Shadow 2018-2019
One Year, Online Apprenticeship – Starts March 1, 2018! Application period will open January 2018. Application deadline is Feb. 22, 2018. To be placed on the waiting list for an application when available, please email alight46927@mypacks.net.


This is our 4th Witchcraft, Shamanism & Magick III apprenticeship! If you are currently enrolled in the Witchcraft, Shamanism & Magick II apprenticeship, you may apply for this class at this time. Approval will be pending your full completion of the WSM II course requirements. 

Prerequisite is successful completion of Witchcraft, Shamanism & Magick II - Growing Your Roots in Service to the Gods. Other prior work by applicants, particularly a formal course of WSM I and WSM II study, may count as completion of WSM I and WSM II - Growing Your Roots in Service to the Gods. This is a high benchmark [emphasis added]. The prior work must be solid and contain the same courses of studies and level of work. This is a one year class, and classes cannot be individually taken. 

Join us for Witchcraft, Shamanism & Magick III, a one year, in person training in shamanism in the context of Witchraft and Magick and the path to embracing and partnering with your shadow self. The Witch, the Shaman and the Mage … Join us on this year’s journey of the shamanic practitioner, with an eye to the practice of shamanism in the context of Witchcraft. We will part the veils of the three worlds and walk between the worlds, journeying to the Upper, Middle and Lower Worlds. We will embrace the Shaman’s Tree, the Great World Tree, as our journey vehicle as we travel the three worlds. The shamanic path is one of a healer – healing oneself, healing others and healing the three worlds. We are a bridge between the worlds, connecting the physical plane with the other world and communing with spirits. 

We will explore core shamanic practices and techniques of healing, travel and communing with the dead, our ancestors and the Mighty Dead / Hidden Company. We will work with our spirit allies, developing a spiritual team supporting our shamanic and healing work. We will go within and distill our shadow, facing our fears and transforming them into a partnership with our shadow self as we seek to align our souls. We will explore and heal our past selves in this lifetime and in prior lifetimes. 

We will partner with allies in the Animal, Crystal and Plant kingdoms, connecting with the divine that runs through all things, including exploration of animal totems/allies, our Fetch animal and Green Lover (plant spirit), as we work with animal and plant spirit medicine. We will face the Dark Goddess and the darkness within ourselves, bringing it to light, into to healing and into Love through the power of Water, of Compassion and Unconditional Love.

Homework will be required. There will be an online group component. Class instruction will be provided via online video format, written lessons and photos in directed self-study with mentoring. This is a one year apprenticeship, and classes cannot be individually taken. Class will culminate in a Year & A Day Initiation Ritual to mark your completion of Witchcraft, Shamanism & Magick III, and for online students, it will culminate in your personal Year & A Day Initiation Ritual. Please note that ultimately no one can partner with your shadow for you or declare you as having done so - it is between you and your soul, your selves.

Dates: First virtual class is March 1, 2018. New lesson the first of each month. Last lesson and your Personal Year and a Day Initiation Ritual due by March 1, 2019.

As part of this apprenticeship, you will have the opportunity for a few in-person gatherings during the year. These are also offered for our online students as a virtual in-person offering as well. We plan to do these jointly with all WSM apprenticeship classes. These are casual opportunities to hang out with classmates, other Mystery School students and the instructor and/or the teaching assistant to ask questions, discuss homework, your spiritual paths and journeys. 

Cost: Course investment is $300 if paying in advance for the full year of 12 classes. Payment schedules may be arranged on a case by case basis and are based solely on financial need. Certificates of completion will be mailed after final homework and ritual experience is submitted and upon receipt of final payment. Each class builds on the other, so this is a year-long series/class. (cash or check only please; paypal available for a 3% surcharge)
