Group Overview: Edmonton Wiccan Seminary
We are a Canadian Wiccan seminary, established to train Wiccan Temple clergy. Our intention is to fully equip our students to lead established public Temples and to start new ones. In addition to this primary purpose, the Seminary will provide Wiccan religious education for the general public and publish resources for religious education in the Wiccan faith.
The Seminary is an independent body in theological agreement with the Congregationalist Witchcraft Association of Canada and its’ provincial daughters the CWA British Columbia, CW Assembly of Alberta, and CWA Saskatchewan. Membership and involvement in CWA or its provincial daughter churches is not a prerequisite to enrolment in the Seminary. Ordination into CWAA will be available to our graduates by agreement with the Board of Directors of that body.
Temples started by our students will be accepted as provisional member Temples of CWA, but will need to be approved in the province where they are set up by the provincial Board.
We have a four path approach: The first three paths are for training and certification as Temple Clergy and the fourth, after completion of the first three, for training and certification as Temple Planters.
1) Academic work up to the expected standards of university or college in the secular world but focused on the needs of a Wiccan clergy person ministering to a public Outer Court and community of neo-Pagans of various stripes.
2) Personal introspection and practice guided by a mentor and in a small group.
3) Outer Court group work in the community, particularly public Temple leadership.
4) Selected upper level students will also be trained in planting new Temples.
In all four paths teaching is done through mentorship and with a mixture of practice and theory.
Contact the Dean for more information. The Seminary will be accepting students for a January 2016 start.
