Blackheart Witchcraft is a culmination of twenty-five years of study, practice and teaching the Craft. It includes teachings from all of the Craft traditions in which I am an initiate–Feri Tradition, the Circle of the Goddess, The Third Road Faerie Tradition–as well as esoteric teachings from other magical, shamanic and mystery-traditions. I am not an Initiate of any Wiccan tradition and will not be teaching from those systems.
BHW is Old School Witchery in that our Craft is practical, gritty, provocative and powerful. In fact, one of the fundamental goals of BHW is to bring the Witch fully into her/his own personal Power. A Witch needs Power, works with Power and is Power. Witch-Power is natural like the sea, a storm, a gentle breeze, the cry of a coyote, the glint of the eye, the infinite and silent expanse of starlit space. A Witch does not cringe at the thought of Power but revels in it and learns to wield it with precision and care. Witch Power should not be confused with the power of ego, celebrity or narcissistic charisma.
First Year students in Blackheart Witchcraft will train for thirteen months using internet video, audio, email, an online classroom/discussion forum and video-chat. They will engage with personal practice and assignments designed to deepen their embodied experience of the Craft. Theory is well and good but is useless without practice! During this First Year we will explore the origins of the Craft as well as “Witch Blood” and the nature of the Witch her/himself. We’ll study and practice the Art of Magic alongside our relationship to the Unseen realms. We’ll come to embody an understanding of the Witch’s role in the world(s) and why s/he must live a life of self examination and personal responsibility. Emphasis will be placed on mastery of visualization, soul alignment, kala, effective spell-work, ethics and communication with the inhabitants of the unseen realms.
This Training will challenge what you know of the Craft. It is an appropriate training for everyone serious about deepening, developing and honing their Craft tools–and the Witch her/himself is the first and foremost tool.
As you know, I’ve been teaching the Craft a long time. As of this date (and into the foreseeable future) I am no longer taking students for Feri training as I feel the Tradition has (d)evolved into something I no longer recognize. The small core of BHF Initiates and Students and hence, the Lineage remains intact but closed. I do not wish to bring anyone else into that Tradition. Please understand that Blackheart Witchcraft is not Feri Training nor will it ever lead to Feri training with me.
I do, however, wish to continue training Witches in the Craft! My goal for Blackheart Witchcraft is to train and develop capable powerful, healthy, effective, responsible and ethical Witches whose own goals are centered around living the life of a Witch rather than utilizing the Craft as a means of attaining small-time celebrity.
Blackheart Witchcraft is an initiatory path. At minimum, students will work three years toward that end which is really another beginning.
This training requires an energy exchange in the form of dollars. I will not negotiate terms nor entertain offers to barter. Witches live in the real world. Our distaste for monetary exchange is a leftover from judeo-christian dogma and does none of us any good. The “cost” of training covers the many expenses required to create and deliver to you a high quality, thorough training experience . A small portion of your payment is an exchange for my service to you as an experienced Witch and Teacher.
If you want more information on Blackheart Witchcraft, please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and put “BHW Training” in the subject line. This initial inquiry from you matters a lot as it is my first impression of you. Put your best Witch-foot forward!
I am making a one time offer via Daily Witch this week which would make it possible for you to receive the first year of Blackheart Witchcraft training free. If you aren’t subscribed to Daily Witch, you won’t hear about that opportunity. Please subscribe by clicking the SUBSCRIBE button in the right upper margin of this page.
I will not run BHW at this time for fewer than 12 students. I promise I will never take on more students than I can give personal attention to. Should the training cancel due to lack of committed students you will be refunded any registration costs or tuition in full. I cannot say if or when I will offer this again.
I will accept students from today, September 2 though September 27 and no later. You must contact me via email to be considered for Training (click here to do so: email@example.com ). Email arriving at other CTW email addresses, addresses from my other websites, messages via facebook or twitter will be ignored.
If you would like to hear from students who have trained with me in the past, I would be happy to put you in touch with them.
Blessed Be Your Journey.
