Witchcraft Immersion

Registration for the 2021 Witchcraft Immersion is now open!

What is the Witchcraft Immersion?

The Witchcraft Immersion is a year long course of discovery focused on Traditional Witchcraft and Modern Heathenry.

Learning witchcraft means meeting yourself in a new way. It is igniting your personal power. Witchcraft can transform you into the highest and best version of yourself – and it is also a tool to get shit done. You will learn more about yourself, you will get in touch with the world around you, you will feel one with the seasons, and you will find and develop relationships with guides who can help you truly to be the best you can be.

In a word: Witchcraft is life-changing.

It is also complex and a constant learning process.

It’s time to embark on a year-long journey of exploring witchcraft and the many cultures surrounding it. Over the course of one year, you will meet with a group of like-minded, radical witches every other week.

This course is ideal for those who are largely solitary, who would like support in developing their spiritual practice and pushing themselves to learn more skills within witchcraft. I come from a combination of Modern Witchcraft and Norse Heathenry, with some folk magic in there for flair. I teach through these lenses, to help support your individual practice. You don’t need to be a heathen or of Norse ancestry to get a lot out of the course. This is why I’m blending Modern Witchcraft in to the course: It will make it applicable even if you aren’t a heathen.

Witchcraft Immersion Manifesto:

*Witchcraft is our intimate connection to the cycles of life and death all around us
*Witchcraft is folk magic: by the people and for the people
*Witches stand in resistance to the oppressive overculture
*Witchcraft is available to all, no matter their cultural background, race, sexuality, gender identity, religion, income, ability, mental health
*We dare to desire
*We believe in consent and reciprocal relationships in all things
*We work in the shadows, but our Craft is with us even in the bright light of day
*We learn from our ancestors, but we are always and constantly reinventing ourselves and our Craft
*We live with mystery, in the liminal and the non-defined
*Witchcraft is a tool, and we do not fear to use it
*We know that magic is not all love and light – that healing requires shadow work, that to face an unjust system we need to be willing to work with blood and bone as well as love
*We are always, constantly learning from one another, our ancestors, our deities, and Spirit
*This course is built on the principle of co-teaching and co-learning. Everyone has knowledge and experience to share


Why an immersion?

Most of the witches I know work primarily in solitude, but are craving community. Many witches don’t thrive in the coven structure, and want something different. We want to be able to cast spells together, or to learn from mentors – without the long-term commitment of joining a coven.

Witchcraft is a skill, and it’s a practice. It’s something that you cultivate and grow, and something that you learn more about the more you talk with other people. There is also a definite spiritual aspect of witchcraft that you can only tap into with extended time with the practice.

A year-long immersion is a great way to find community and build your own individual spiritual practice, as well as have accountability for continued study. The other students in the Immersion will be a support system for you as you step into your power – and you will witness their transformations as well.

About the course:

We will meet via Zoom on Sunday evenings from 6pm – 8pm CST. The class is a combination of meditation, lecture, and discussion and/or activities. Sometimes we will be working on the theoretical level, and sometimes we will actually perform magic in class as an example. You will also gain access to the Northern Lights Witch discord, with a special secret channel just for Witchcraft Immersion 2021 students.

One of the most important experiences of your year in the Witchcraft Immersion will be creating your very own magical record. This is a journal that will help you discern what works and what doesn’t in your craft. In this book, you will complete journal prompts, homework/research assignments, and keep track of your spells (and results).

You will also have discounts on all of my standalone courses that I teach throughout the year (Radical Runes, Psychic Cleansing, etc.), as well as discounts on readings with me in the shop.

If you choose to do so, you can also add a deeper mentorship package to your year. This mentorship package will give you the opportunity to meet with me 1:1 every month to chat about your path, and for individual guidance. This can take the form of a tarot or rune reading, or just an informal chat and guidance.

Why work with me?

I’m a very eclectic witch, I’ve studied extensively, while being down to earth. I want to help facilitate your own spiritual journey – and I know that at times, that will look different from my own spiritual journey. I’ve studied many different paths of witchcraft, and can help you to expand your horizons while remaining true to the path that is best for you.

I see witchcraft as a powerful tool for individual and social change, a tool to heal as well as to hex. I am conscious of issues of cultural appropriation, and strive to keep from misusing indigenous tradition while still remaining an eclectic witch. I am also conscious of the environmental impacts of witchcraft, and will help you to work your magic in line with the earth.

I also teach specifically from a Modern Witchcraft and Nordic Magic lens. So if you have an interest in runes, the Norse pantheon, and adapting magic to your contemporary life, this is a good fit for you.

Course Structure + Learning Tools

  • The students will meet as a group every other Sunday, starting in January 2021
  • We will take the months of June and December off, because rest is important
  • I will be teaching from several books over the course of the year, to be announced at a later date.
  • Each student will receive a gift package at the beginning of the course including:
    • A woodburned talisman for learning and expansion, crafted and charged by me
    • A smoke cleansing bundle of Tjärved, juniper herb bundle, and a hagstone
    • A candle to be charged in our first session together and used as a central altar piece through the year

Registration

To register, first you will need to set up a Discovery Call with me. This is a 1:1, 15 minute Zoom session where we discuss your goals as a witch, experience, and what you’re hoping to get out of the course.

This is also an opportunity for you to assess if this is the right fit! Every teacher is different, and every student has different goals for their work. This is a good chance for you to ask any questions before committing to a year of the course.

Once your Discovery Call is complete, you can take some time to decide if the course is right for you, and ultimately register.
