Description:

This seeker meeting is for any adults over the age of 18 who are interested in pursuing training in Modern Witchcraft through The Sojourner Tradition of Witchcraft. We invite you to this free and open event to meet us, and learn about the program. Weekly classes are held on Thursday nights at 6:00, beginning January 2nd, 2020.

Registration fees are due at time of enrollment; $90 for the first 5 weeks of classes, and is non-refundable. Seating is limited and is a first-come-first-serve basis, so please enroll in advance.

Please note that this first session is the ONLY open enrollment time of the year–afterwards, it will be closed to new students for the remainder of the year.

We prefer new seekers to be present for both the seeker meeting and every class, as they build upon each other.

What is a “seeker?”

Good question. A seeker is a person pursuing training in Modern Witchcraft, and trying out different traditions, styles, groups, teachers, before settling on one particular program.

Seekers to Witchcraft with our coven, can be any sex, gender identity, or sexual preference; of any race, from any heritage, creed, nation… However, we will ask that our students be at least 18 years of age (for legal reasons) and physically, mentally, emotionally, and financially stable enough to beneficially utilize the things we teach, and able to contribute in a fair and equitable way to the over-all success of our group.

In short, paganism is for everyone. A Witch can look like, be, and come from anywhere, but Modern Witchcraft as a praxis and job-description is a demanding path not appropriate for everyone. It’s demands of radical personal sovereignty, self-reliance, service and responsibility will best serve a relatively small subset of pagans, and that is absolutely OK. You’ll never know if this path is correct for you until you give it a try, and we are here to help you discover the answers to these questions.

So, Are you a legal adult with the resources you need to survive, thrive and contribute fairly? Can you manage your life and current responsibilities reasonably well?

Do you have the extra time and energy to commit to this program, including reading the required texts, and working independently on your meditation and spiritual practice?

Are you ready to level up in your personal empowerment? After that, all you really need is an open and curious mind, and an open heart.

We look forward to meeting you!

Tapestries in the Hallway

Merchandise Expansion!

We’re making changes! We’ve expanded our retail display area into the sitting room, so that more new books may be displayed. Take a seat on the couch, and peruse all the amazing books we’re getting in comfort.

We’ve also moved the tapestries, banners, prayer flags and fabric wall-hangings into the hallway. To make room, we’ve down-sized our used book section to include only non-fiction titles pertaining to spirituality, religion and other metaphysical topics that support our merchandise. We will continue to accept donations for those types of books, but are discontinuing our consignment program. If you have books on consignment with us, we’ve pulled them aside and emailed you about pick-up and donation options.

We’ve completely reorganized our existing oil displays, fully-restocked, and added 72 additional scents! We’re ready for all your olfactory needs! Deities from around the world, including the African Orishas, Zodiac signs, mystic intentions, folk magick intentions, and all manner of herbs, trees, roots, resins, fruits, flowers, musks, and many delightful perfume blends! All of these may be used in oil diffusers, or to anoint candles, mojo bags and other magickal objects. All are $11/bottle.
