About the Instructor
Calahn de la Luna, founder of The Blackthorne School, is a Traditional Witch and practitioner of pre-modern British sorcery as well as being a poetess and an artist. Calahn’s practice is heavily centered around working with the spirits of the land and the elements, and is deeply animistic. She also works in Greek and folk currents.
Her mission is to help students find a more direct path to learning and growth, and to make superior quality learning available to practitioners around the globe in a way that is both refined and artful in presentation.
Calahn makes her home in a beautifully lush and hilly Northwest Chicago, Illinois USA suburb with her husband and two extremely needy yet endearing Maine Coon rescue cats.
“Though I’ve been an occultist for many years, I decided to take this course as a way to return to the basics after feeling a bit stalled out in my practice. Honestly, I expected a simple refresher or perhaps to learn a few new things. Instead, this course totally changed how I engage with spirits for the better in ways I am still benefiting from today.
The course starts at ground zero and very little in the way of prior preparation is needed. The material builds up knowledge and practical application in very manageable steps. Though you will need to work (there will be plenty of reading and practical exercises to try), it’s all very doable and accessible. And by the time you’re done, you’ll have a strong grounding in both the theory AND the practice of traditional witchcraft.
Yes, you can learn a lot on your own, but it was game-changing to have a community of other sorcerously-inclined individuals to learn with, who were engaging the same material at the same time. And there’s no replacement for having a mentor when learning – especially one as wise, patient, and talented as Calahn. I would recommend this course to anyone, whether you’re a total beginner or an experienced occultist looking to reboot a stale practice.” -J L
“Calahn de la Luna’s Blackthorne School presents elegantly-conceived teachings by some of the smartest and brightest scholar-practitioners working, writing, and making magic today, such as Jack Grayle and Lee Morgan. The directrix herself is an excellent teacher whose own instruction in foundational practices of premodern British sorcery is very ably imparted to the contemporary student. Calahn’s Intro to Traditional Witchcraft is a pithy and efficient entry to a potent path–I was no beginner when I took the class, but nonetheless found fresh insights there, and highly recommend it to novice and adept alike!” -SF
