You’re an adult and you have a busy life! In our modern-day world full of demands, time-constraints, distractions, and people constantly needing a piece of us, sometimes you want something just for you that offers a weekly little tidbit of wisdom and inspiration to propel you forward on your spiritual path that also magically somehow fits into your wild and constantly-changing schedule. This course is EXACTLY what you’ve been looking for!

In this brand-new revamp of Calahn’s beloved formerly 13-week journey into developing and building a personal practice of Traditional Witchcraft, Calahn has broken that course down into numerous smaller, “bite-sized” lessons. One shorter lesson is released once per week, but you are able to work at your own pace without feeling the need to keep up with a group or have an instructor “keeping tabs” on you.

This one-of-a-kind course consists of prerecorded videos, documents, articles, and projects to complete before continuing to your next lesson. Once you are a student of the course, you will have indefinite access to course videos and materials so you can enjoy the course content again and again.

This course is unique in that it does NOT include a private cohort-only FaceBook group. Instead there will be a highly optional FaceBook group of many of Calahn’s former and current students who have or currently are studying these materials and continue to interact in the group, even long after the course is over. It is our hope that the group will become a group of sweet community as well as one of the best informational resources out there on Traditional Witchcraft. For those without FaceBook, not to worry! Calahn is also available via email to answer questions on course-related content, if needed. You will do just fine taking this course without any FaceBook group.

You will have access to course videos and materials so you can enjoy the course content again and again at your own pace for the duration of the life of the school.

Student Reviews

“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
