*NEW* Wiccan Apprentice Course in London -Starts soon!

*NEW* Wiccan Apprentice Course in London – 3 month outdoor Training with 6 sessions – Starts on 27th April 2014!

Wicca & Witchcraft Apprentice Training Courses - Outdoors- London.  (April to June 2014)
Wicca & Witchcraft Apprentice Training Courses – Outdoors- London. (April to June 2014)

One of the challenges newcomers, Seekers & Explorers of Wicca & Witchcraft traditions face is – they can’t either find or pin down an experienced Wiccan Coven Leader(s) – and learn The Craft in the traditional apprentice manner!    People just about find `Intro Courses’ that are 4-5 hours long in an indoor hired venue – where a Tutor gives explanations and a few meditations.

This one is different. Why?  Because it’s facilitated by a Wiccan High Priest (Mani) with nearly 2 decades of Craft & Coven experience. (There – no hiding!)  And it’s facilitated by someone who has actually been not just running rituals (10 yrs), but outdoor Courses & Workshops regularly.  What’s more, this is not just a sit-down-listen to explanations & go home course.

This takes place outdoors – out in the elements and whatever weather that nature may come up with on a day.  (Been there many times!)  It immerses the Student-Seeker in nature. Well – isn’t that what being a true Wiccan / Witch is all about?

This also is fully experiential, and spread over 5-6 sessions (session 6 is private and covers Covens & Initiations).  You get to listen, learn, and practise – there and then!  And this includes 2 full workshops – on making essential tools (Wands & Pentacles) and learning key magical techniques (Rune magic & Cord / Witches Ladder magic).

All this in a natural vast woodland in London- with plenty of other facilities (Car park, toilets, Cafe, 5 minute walk from a Tube station). So all that you are learning – Apprentice-style- is imbued with the energy of nature!   You can’t escape it – even if you try!!

*For more informationand to Book your course, visit our website  Witchcraft and Wicca.org.UK*

And – there’s a bonus!   You get real Ritual experience.  Some of the sessions take place on the same day as our `Woodland Monthly Wicca Esbat Ritual Circle’ – so Students can take a break after the afternoon session (1-2 hrs) and join the evening Ritual – and watch or get even more experience ( Well, isn’t that what Apprentices should do?!! 🙂 )

What Wicca essentials are  covered:

You will learn the foundations of Wicca, Principles & laws, practise setting up Altars & Consecrate space,  do Circle casting, invoke Elemental Quarters & raise energy in the group / Circle with Witches Rune/ Chants, learn Invoking the Horned God & Triple Moon Goddess. You will also learn about doing Magic and create essential Wiccan tools (wand, Pentacle, Rune Magic & Cord Magic).

Attendance Options  (we offer various discounted fees for these)

  • Attend all *5 sessions   (includes 3 core & 2 workshops)    [*Session 6 is free and by invitation]
  • Attend just the 3 Core sessions
  • Attend just the 2 workshops
  • Attend any 1 Session or 1 workshop.

That’s quite a lot – for 5 sessions (each will be about 4 hrs)!  *There is a 6th session, FREE but that’s by invite only, and to those who will have attended 3 or more sessions, or those who are doing our home study e-Witch Apprentice course by e-mails, or those who have purchased our `Cven Guide: Become an initiated Witch’ [well, we like to reward the Seekers & Students who are learning with us in other ways too ].

For more information, fees and for Booking, visit our website  Witchcraft and Wicca.org.UK

As a Wiccan High Priest, I look forward to serving you – as you explore your wiccan path.

Bright Blessings
