Status: Established Group

Group Overview: We are a magical practitioners group who use magic to enhance ourselves and our lives. We do not practice a religion as part of this group.

We are a teaching tradition and tend to be a bit high-church. We meet at the eight Sabbats and at both Full and New Moons. Sabbats are open to vetted guests; Moons are closed. We are an eclectic group and pull from many different backgrounds, cultures, and traditions.

We always welcome serious seekers who are interested and are ready and willing to commit themselves to hard work and change. We focus on equal development of three aspects of magical workings:

• Knowledge
What you know. Books, Internet, discussions.

• Skills
What you can do. Work with energy, cast circles, practice divination.

• Personal
Introspection, what you learn about yourself, how you work, and what you are.

After initial interviews and a visit to an open Sabbat or two, you may (or may not) be invited to become a Dedicant. Initial training is in the Dedicants’ class, which is a year-and-a-day commitment. We do not guarantee Initiation to all Dedicants.

We do not have a Dedicants Class for 2012-2013.

===================================================

--------------------------------------------------------
*** If you’re interested in visiting us: ***
--------------------------------------------------------

Please email us and include your answers to the following three questions:

1. Why do you want to study magic?
2. If your magical studies are totally successful, one year from now, what would be different in your life because of your studies?
3. On what is your current understanding of magic based (e.g., what books, movies, TV shows, previous studies, etc) ?

Please note this account is only checked once or twice a week so there may be a delay in responding to your inquiry.
===================================================

Twelve Frequently Asked Questions:
---------------------------------------

1. Do you teach on-line?
No. We require our students to attend and participate in Circles, rituals, and classes in person.

2. Do you accept minors?
No. We only teach adults.

3. Can I visit one of your rituals?
Our rituals are semi-closed. Before being issued an invite, you must meet us in a neutral, public place so we both have a chance to talk. We usually meet interested seekers for lunch or dinner at a local restaurant. Please note this may take time to set up. Don't email us two days before a major Sabbat wanting an invite.

4. When do you meet?
We hold semi-open rituals at the 8 major Sabbats and closed rituals at both New and Full Moon. Our meetings are held either on the day of or very close to the actual date. We do not move all meetings to the nearest weekend. A flexible schedule (at least in the evenings) is a must for someone interested.

5. What advanced training do you offer?
We offer advanced training to those we have initiated.

6. Will you answer my questions/help me with my paper/do my homework for me?
We answer reasonable questions, time permitting. We won’t do your homework for you.

7. There is no question 7.

8. What do I need to know before I come to a meeting/ritual?
We’ll cover that when we meet with you; see Question #3 above. But, yes, we wear clothes, no; we aren’t skyclad; no, you don’t need robes or tools to visit; no, no animal sacrifice or broom flying in our rituals .

9. Do you work with Dark Energies/ Do you practice Dark Magic?
We believe in a balance and work with both dark and light energies. Please read “Practicing With Dark Energies” at http://www.witchvox.com/va/dt_va.html?a=&c=words&id=10527 for our viewpoint on this.

10. Who are you looking for?
We are looking for intelligent, open-minded individuals who are willing to work, study and learn. You must be willing to explore and discuss new ideas and concepts, research and learn new knowledge, learn new skills, and grow yourself personally. A sense of humour is helpful as well.

11. What if I’m looking for a religious group?
We do not practice magic within a religious framework, but nor do we exclude people who do. We do not restrict our members from belonging to other groups, especially if they want to practice their religious beliefs. We can usually recommend a group or other resource locally for those wishing to exclusively practice magic within the confines of a religious group.

12. What Are Teacher's Rights?
Please read the article at http://www.witchvox.com/va/dt_va.html?a=ustx&c=words&id=10549
