We all need a host; ideas to feed from while our palates mature. I drink from the Cup of the Craft, that is, Wicca. I’ve practiced for 3 years as a solitary witch with little formal training. My palate is more refined now so my study habits must follow. I’ve exhausted almost every book published on the subject of Wicca, Witchcraft, the Old Religion, Sabbats, Esbats, and Goddess worship. The question now is “what happens next?”First I built a bookshelf, alphabetized my library, and got some space in my apartment!
The next logical step was to decide what I was looking for at this juncture. I have a daily practice that aids in balancing my energies, grounding my anxiety and connecting me to Divinity….isn’t that what a spiritual practice is all about? Hadn’t I achieved the goal? What more do I need?
After careful introspection, I found a few loose ends….1) A huge part of Wicca is the practice of magick. Don’t get me wrong, I dabble in the different methods but I’m not proficient in a specific magick.
2) I want a connection with other Wicca. How do I expect to grow and learn with no one to bounce off of? I’ve hit my personal ceiling only to realize I’m stuck in a vacuum.
3) Lastly, I am passionate about the Craft, about students of the Goddess being able to find what they need to deepen their spiritual bonds with our Earth Mother.
With all that said, my path starts out as a student who wants to be a teacher. I’ll review as many witch schools as I can, keep you updated on which traditions each school teaches, whether or not they initiate graduates, and whether or not it is possible to become a teacher by completing their program as a student.
Hopefully, by the end of this, we can get to the bottom of who will rip you off, who will give you what you pay for, and who will give you more than you bargained for!
Please let me know of any school suggestions you might have so that I can check into them. Currently, I’m beginning reviews on the

Stay tuned! Love and light to my fellow travelers! Merry Part
