My Background & Training

The Sacred Fires Tradition of Witchcraft
The Sacred Fires Tradition of Witchcraft is founded upon the concepts of European Occultism, American Folk Magick Traditions, Ecstatic Witchcraft and Energy Healing. Our magic is heavily based on the development of the psychic abilities of the witch, especially the mediumistic. We are known for our unique bonds to familiar spirits and regard them highly in our personal and traditional work. Our magic teaches us to wield large amounts of power and energy. Our magic is conveyed through a shared shamanic and ecstatic experience, real life experience, and personal will power. Instead of initiation levels we use flames. Each flame gives us tools to forge our own souls path. Through each of the fires we dismantle the armor and shed our skin, ultimately being reborn as gods ourselves and creators of our own souls path.

The Temple of Witchcraft Mystery School
Co-founded by Christopher Penczak, Steve Kenson, and Adam Sartwell, the Temple started in 1998 as a system of magickal training and personal development, and eventually developed into a formal tradition of Witchcraft. Now, as an outgrowth of the work of students, initiates, and graduates of the programs, the Temple of Witchcraft has evolved into an organization based on traditions of modern magick, Witchcraft, and neopaganism. The work of the Temple is both other-worldly and terrestrial, seeking to strengthen the connections between spirit and matter through inner transformation and public service. The Temple of Witchcraft’s goal on an individual level is to awaken the potential of the human soul to its natural gifts of psychic awareness, communion with nature and the spirits, and magick.

Sorcery of Hekate with Jason Miller
The Sorcery of Hekate is a seven month course centered around working with Hekate as she has taught Jason Miller to work with Her. Most the course focuses on a Mandala of Hekate that contains not just Her, but other spirits which serve different functions. By focusing on different aspects, chants, and sorceries, the practice can become infinitely variable and laser focused.

Take Back Your Mind With Jason Miller
This course is different than most mindfulness programs. Most teachings on meditation talk about finding calm and peace. Calm and peace are important, but they are a side effect, not the goal. The goal is to take back what has been stolen from you: your attention span, your self-awareness, your ability to act from your own will rather than the push and pull of habit and external conditions. The Goal is to wake up: to be present, self possessed, and in command of tools and powers you did not even know you had.

Covenant of Hekate
Created by Sorita d’Este in 2010, Within the Covenant of Hekate we explore the Mysticism and Magic of the goddess Hekate through the practice of theurgy (‘divine-working’) to achieve henosis (union with the divine), through contemplation, experience, intuition, divination, meditation and ritual within the realms of the Western Esoteric Traditions. The Covenant of Hekate is rooted in firm foundations of knowledge and practice from the traditions of the ancient world which honored Hekate. This knowledge and practices form the basis of the modern manifestation of Hekate’s worship in ways relevant to this age and accessible to all who seek her mysteries.

A Course In Modern Conjure
A Course In Modern Conjure is the collaborative curriculum of Chas Bogan and Storm Faerywolf, both experienced root workers with individual Conjure doctoring practices. Having repeatedly taught this course at their store The Mystic Dream, they have reworked their lessons to suit an online setting, integrating new materials such as art, music and video in order to enhance their teaching. You will be encouraged to work hands-on with various herbs, curios, oils, and other magical paraphernalia. Our study will focus on various traditions of American folklore, such as Hoodoo, Southern Conjure, Pow-Wow, and more, including work with various written texts such as the King James Bible and certain Grimoires.

The Munay Ki Shamanic Rites
The Munay-Ki are nine rites of initiation that have been handed down from time immemorial through the medicine tradition of the Americas. The modern day custodians of some of these rites are the Q’ero community of the Andes. The Q’ero and many other Native American peoples believe that humanity is now going through a great transition in consciousness. The Munay-ki are seeds of attunements that can be planted in the human energetic field, which as they grow give rise to this new humanity.

Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “Universal Force or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”
