Dedicant training takes place in a series of weekly classes, casually referred to as Wicca 101. These classes may be open to other women who aren’t dedicants, and these classes are a requirement for initiation. These classes teach Wicca from our perspective, and include homework. Even if you have taken Wicca 101 before, you must take our classes. Our classes are at no cost to our dedicants.
Initiate training is somewhat self-paced, in addition to classes taught by sister coveners. We have a 3 degree system, and from first degree to second degree, it is self-paced and includes independent study, coven leadership work and multiple projects. It usually takes around one year from first degree to second degree (every sister is expected to get to second degree).
From second degree, one may choose whether she wants to become a coven high priestess- third degree. This path isn’t for everyone, and the path to priestess is a commitment- involving lots of writing, projects, reading, practicing, and training. There are other requirements, besides being of the second degree, and this path may take one year, or several years to accomplish. The responsibility of the high priestess is great, and is not for everyone.
If you are not within driving distance, and are interested in training, contact Ivy at firstname.lastname@example.org. Distance training may be possible, but there may be cost associated with the training, unlike training for our dedicants.
