Pagan News and Views Since 1998
I learned about Witch School from the Proto-Temple, Archaic Temple of Arcere. I joined them back in 2013. I became a Basic Member of Witch School that same year. I enjoyed taking classes like the First Degree course. Once I finished the First Degree course I was ready for more! So I became a Lifetime Member in 2016. I’ve had a wonderful experience since then! There are tons of courses to pick from. From learning about Divination (Basics-Advanced), to Anthropology, Psychic…Continue

Testimonial Letter of Rt. Rev. Anna Rowe, Witan Herald CNT - Dean of Mentoring CEM
I started the First Degree course via email back in 1999. I took the Second Degree course via email as well. I became a Witch School Mentor in 2002, the year after the Witch School website was founded. I had not come across an online school before, and I was impressed by the variety of online courses that had been established already for students by 2002. I can honestly say it is so much easier to take…Continue
Testimonial letter Windy Lajoie
My life took on a new meaning when I joined Witch School sixteen years ago. The courses are wonderful. There are so many of them, and they are available in many languages. We have come such a long way, but it is time to move forward. The technology is moving and we want to move right along with it. The system is being re-written and the cost is very high. We are asking for contributions to get this project up and running; it doesn’t matter if it is…Continue

Hello, fellow WitchSchool supporters!
I am the Chief Financial Officer of WitchSchool International, serving since WSI became the seminary of the Correllian Nativist Tradition through Correllian Educational Ministries (CEM) in September 2015. I would like to share with you why we need your support to generate the needed resources to upgrade the WSI site, $20,000. This call to action is not one we take lightly or without serious consideration. The software underlying the WSI site is…Continue
For the first part of my Summer speaking tour, I had the privilege of attending the Heartland Pagan Festival, the St. Louis Pagan Picnic and the Three Gates Festival. Collectively, It was an immensely enjoyable experience and respectively, each of these events were special in their own magical ways of which I won't soon forget! The best part of it all was gathering together with old friends to reminisce, and in addition to that, having the blessing of building new…Continue

My Thoughts Regarding Witch School
When I first entered Witch School I recognized right away that a group of individuals cared enough about humanity to write and present materials that could be life-changers. They saw the need for a magical school that could reach any place at any time where students may learn at their own pace with a supportive community.
I walked Green Lake in Seattle today, and saw my first baby ducks. I was very happy and loudly said "Baby Ducks!" which clearly shows that my Soul retrieval took since one of the parts to return was my enthusiastic inner child. My next comment was, "We need more ducks." Wasn't sure where that came from, I just loved those little ducks.
As a totem or power animal, Duck represents living in the moment, a focus on relationship and family, and a mystical quality of moving between the…Continue

This will be a short blog post today because I have to get ready to teach my summer school class, non-profit financial management, that starts tomorrow. It is a marathon course. We do an entire semester's work in five long, eight-hour days (Fri-Sat-Fri-Sat-Fri) but it is also a lot of fun. Anyway, why did you get up this morning?
I hope you realize that life isn't designed to be fun and games and its not a life-time pass to an amusement park. Life is designed, and we designed it this…Continue

I was working on one of the questions in Third Degree comprehensive final exam this morning and this got me thinking about the need to practice what we know.
Have you ever seen someone's book collection with shelf after shelf of books that have never been read? The collection might be impressive but it is also useless.
Magical knowledge is not given to us nor do we collect it so that it can gather dust on a shelf in our minds. The key to being a real Wiccan, a witch or a wizard…Continue

Graduation at the university where I'm a professor just ended and I'm sitting three floors above the dell looking down at the graduation crowd and reflecting on the last year.
Early in their senior year many of my students realize that their lives are going to change. They are 22 years old and have been in school since they were 5 and all of the sudden classes, school activities and friends aren't going to be the center of their world. They want to know what's next and what do…Continue

Probably the most common question that I am asked when I teach shamanic journey workshops (I like to call them "playshops") is "What if I am making the whole thing up?" That's a very good question. It is quite common to feel like you are creating your journey with your imagination, because you are. Well sort of.
I expect that when we journey part of our soul travels to the other world and part remains in our body. In essence, our soul bilocates. The part of our soul that has left…Continue

It took me a bit longer than a year and a day - but not by much! I have finished up the First Degree course and also taken several others. Of the required courses for First Degree initiation, I have only the Correllian Ministry class still to take. I feel like I have learned and grown so much in the past year and I am excited to see what the future holds asI continue my studies in this Tradition and others.
