Merry Meet!

I'm a solitaire.  My path is mostly ecclectic. I pull a little bit from here and there. I am currently outlining my core beliefs as I walk this path.  I keep my practice very family oriented as I have little ones.  I'm a no nonsense kind of girl.  I truly enjoy learning and teaching - and I look forward to one day teaching my own daughters the magickal arts.  All of my study has been self directed.  I might bounce a few ideas off of others here and there and ask a few questions, but mostly I research and experiment on my own.  I am a LEO, so I harbor many of the positive and negative qualities usually associated with one.  I'm OK with that and work on improving the ones I'm not so OK with.  I don't hate the Christian community as I once was one.  I try to view most things, from a place of understanding, compassion and empathy.  I'm not all love and light either. I'm a realist. I don't see things in just BLACK and WHITE, but have experienced enough to know that their is a lot of GREY areas on many issues. I look forward to learning and sharing with you all.

I have been with WitchSchool for many, many years. And yes there has been some questionable issues about them. However I do not follow blindly what someone is teaching. Also It is all very easy to say that the craft should be offered freely but it is not that simple. If you live remotely and don't have access to a teacher/mentor you might find that some of the different online courses can be very helpful. 

I don't mind an organization charging a reasonable amount. And I believe that $50 for a lifetime membership is reasonable. As with anything you need to be open minded to what you are learning. I did not stop with The Corellian Tradition but they had some very good beginner tools that were extremely helpful. 

Personally I prefer not to get into the politics of an organization. There are things I do not support but that does not mean that I didn't learn some valuable lessons. 

Also I provided more than one option. It is not fair to believe that an organization that has put together a rather extensive curriculum can or should do it for free. There is a lot of expenses associate with putting something like that together. If it is a one on one mentor program or a class put on by and elder then that is different. However there are still cost associated with that and usually it is shared. 

I have since taken a free class locally which was conducted by a longtime member of the pagan community who started back in the 60s when things were just coming out in the open. All of the resource I have used have provided valuable lessons to me personally. 

I have not had any negative experience with Witch School so I will not dis them for something I have not experience.

All that being said I appreciate your sharing your experiences.

Ariel, just a mention.  ANY magical school or person who charges for Craft initiation and elevation, which WitchSchool does, smells of snake oil.  Truthfully, that organization and the Corellian Tradition have many practices that are ethically questionable.

Most traditions will not accept payment of any kind so there is no question an initiation was "bought" rather than earned.  Many, many HP/S's teach for free and will accept no payment.

The Craft has no price.  It isn't for sale..  To see WitchSchool have a "sale" on it is just plain sad..

Sarah L,

Everybody was new at this once. The deities expect a few mistakes from beginners. Some of us old-timers slip up now and then, too. The condition is called "human"!  :)

I am confused on when to hold a ritual, Is there a specific time frame or moon phase? Are rituals only to connect to the Gods a Goddess? i have done some research and all i have found was spell casting and that is something i feel i am not ready for, but i do want to hold a solitary ritual. i have meditated here in there but i want to be spiritually closer to the God's and Goddess.

UPDATE: I just mentioned last Friday about WitchSchool.com lifetime membership being $149.99. Well they are having a sale through the end of the month for only $49.99. If you are at all interested now is the time to sign up. They are becoming a 501c3 Not For Profit organization. I'm not trying to push them but this is a great offer. Bright Blessings.

In a couple of weeks my year and a day will be over. I have studied hard and read many books.I will be doing a self dedication at that time..I know that I am very exited .It can be lonely being a solitaire but the fulfillment I get  from my rituals is enough.   It's All Good
