I don’t remember exactly when it began, but one day, standing in my kitchen, I realised I was a witch. If you had looked around my house at that point you would probably have noticed. Jars of seeds arranged on shelves with shells and stones, herbs brewing in bottles on the kitchen windowsill, a tiny fairy altar in the garden.
I have been a spiritual seeker for over thirty years and involved in creating and leading ritual and sacred space for the past twenty. Over the past decade my practice has deepened, grown, woven itself into the everyday. It has given me hope, joy, connection to rhythms in my life and in nature and a sense of sacred play in daily life.
This journey is one of self understanding, and growing connectedness to the world around us. It is a woodland walk down unknown paths, exploring old traditions and new expressions. have wanted to share it, but haven’t known how (evangelical witches are an uncommon sight in provincial England 😉 ).
Today I birthed a new project. I imagine it taking place in a tiny, thatched cottage in the forest. One by one solitary, cloaked figures approach and enter, greeted at the door by three black cats. Inside they hange their robes on a twisted, wooden coat stand and take seats at old fashioned wooden desks. I welcome them and indicate the blackboard where the first module’s lessons are outlined. Ladies, gentlemunchkins, welcome to witch school.
We will cover everything I know from my own witchy path; divination, personal practice, practical magic, supernatural support and connection, ritual, seasonal celebrations, magical tools and more.
“Students” (that’s all of us!) will have a monthly video or audio lesson on an element of witchy practice, a PDF to support this, a monthly one to one mentoring session and a group where you can meet with your fellow witchy apprentices.
If you have wanted to dive deeper into exploring the old ways and how to bring them into present times you can find out more on my Patreon. You can also join me at Tea Break Tarot School for a free tarot class and on Facebook for regular witchy goodness.
Looking forward to travelling this path with you 🙂
