Witchcraft, Shamanism & Magick IV - Ceremonial Witchcraft & Magick - High Magick - 2018-2019
One Year, In-Person & Online Apprenticeship – Starts March 1, 2018! Application period opens Jan. 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 2nd Witchcraft, Shamanism & Magick IV apprenticeship! When you successfully complete the Witchcraft, Shamanism & Magick III apprenticeship in the Spirit's Edge Mystery School, you may apply for this class. Approval will be pending discretion of the instructor and your full completion of the WSM III course requirements. This is a one year class, and classes cannot be individually taken. 

Join us for Witchcraft, Shamanism & Magick IV, a one year, in person training in Ceremonial Witchcraft and Magick and the path to merging and union with your Higher Self, your Holy Guardian Angel.  

In this fourth year, the fourth degree of our Temple, we will undergo an intensive study of Ceremonial Magick through the lens of Witchcraft – Ceremonial Witchcraft. We will study and learn from the texts and tomes of the Mages and philosophers of magick. We will walk the path of the occultist through wisdom passed down in magickal grimoires and the studies of the Qabalah and Hermeticism.  

Now that we have partnered with our Shadow Self in the culmination of WSM III, our journey this year will be that of High Magick, the Magick of the Soul. We seek our own gnosis as we court our Higher Self, seeking Union and Divine Marriage with our Holy Guardian Angel. We will seek to integrate this union with our Higher Self into our daily lives, into the fabric and core of our being and existence, living the life of the Adept. The year will end with an individual ritual and commitment to the Bornless One, our Bornless Self, seeking that union with the Divine within and without.

This is the path of theurgy, the development of the soul through magick, or High Magick. As part of this journey, we will pursue our own understanding of the Machinery of the Universe as we study the magickal Reality Maps of various magickal traditions, both modern and ancient. We will develop our own personal reality map, model and cosmology for the Universe.

We will study formal ceremonial rituals and rites, adapting them for our personal, modern magickal use as a Ceremonial Witch and Mage. We will learn, study and deconstruct rites such as the Lesser Banishing Rituals of the Pentagram and Hexagram and will write our own rites, just as we wrote our personal ritual liturgy in WSM II. We will develop new ways of moving and building energy through the energetic and power building practices of the Mage, working with Ceremonial Magick exercises, pathworkings and meditations.

We will undertake a journey through the Qabalah, with pathworkings along the pathways of the Tree of Life, bringing us to, and into, a journey with each of the 10 Sephira on the Tree of Life. Each path and sephira represents a test or trial, and each sephira represents a journey through the elements and a journey through progressively higher levels of consciousness. Through this journey, we will seek to expand and move our consciousness up the Tree of Life, embracing and learning our soul’s lessons, striving for the alchemy of the soul in union with our Higher Self at Tipareth, the Sun, the Divine Child, Center of the Tree of Life.

The Tree of Life is also a journey through the Major Arcana of the tarot and numerology of the tarot. We will explore magickal correspondences such as the tarot, planetary forces, Archangelic and Angelic allies, deities, spirits, colors, incense, oils, herbs, stones, metals, scents, symbols, sigils and other magickal lore associated with each path and sephira.  

We will partner with the Mages of our Temple, the Spirit’s Edge Shamonial Tradition and other magickal traditions throughout time - Mages such as Cornelius Agrippa, Aleister Crowley, Dion Fortune, traditions such as the Golden Dawn, Masonic lore, and much more. We will also work with the writings and teachings of many modern day authors in our effort to challenge our own thinking and study different schools of thought. 


Through this process, you will identify and develop your own reasons, your own beliefs and your own personal cosmology in a way that you may relate it to others of similar or differing beliefs. You will develop a robust, personal perspective on your own path, making it your own, as this is your journey, and your journey to walk alone.


No one can tell you that you have successfully merged with your Holy Guardian Angel. It is a Mystery that no one can describe in words, though others can see it in you if they truly have the eyes to see, the eyes of Truth, clear mirrors to and of the Divine. This year you will seek the Sword of Truth, the Spear of Destiny, the Cup of Compassion, the Stone of Sovereignty, and ultimately, the Crown of Humility. Ultimately, no one, no being or deity or ally, can award you with the Crown of Humility. It comes from your own Higher Self. It must be earned and the Mystery must be uncovered, discovered and integrated. I can only tell you that there will be no mistake and no doubt when - and if - the marriage with your Holy Guardian Angel happens. 

Join us on a journey of High Magick, the magick of the soul. Walk with us on the path of the Mage, the Ceremonial Witch.

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 IV, and for online students, it will culminate in your personal Year & A Day Initiation Ritual. Please note that ultimately no one can merge with your Higher Self / HGA or enter into a state of awareness for you or declare you as having done so - it is between you and your soul, your selves.

Dates: First class is  March 1, 2018 with a new lesson the first of each month. The last lesson begins on Feb. 1, 2019, culminating in Lesson 13 and your Personal Year and a Day Initiation Ritual, which is due by March 31, 2019.

As part of this apprenticeship, you will have the opportunity for a few 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)

This breadth of teachings, both in the writings by Shea and the books for the course will provide a solid foundation and different perspectives on the subject matter. Of course there will be additional resources and teachings referenced during each class. As the Witchcraft, Shamanism & Magick I, II and III apprenticeships area prerequisite, all books listed under those apprenticeships are also required for Witchcraft, Shamanism & Magick IV.

I look forward to journeying with you on the path of the Witch, the Shaman and the Mage!

Many blessings,
Shea
