Early registration is up for the Temple of Witchcraft, Outer Temple of Witchcraft Mystery School class, beginning in March of 2024 and ends in February of 2025.
Witchcraft II involves training in the role of the priestess and priest of witchcraft. Learn all the tools you will need to understand and conduct your own magick circle rituals, moon circles and wheel of the year holiday celebrations. Explore the realm of the Goddess and God through world mythology, the four elements, sacred space, meditation and altar building. Work the craft of the Witch through natural magick and spell work, including herbs, crystals, potions, charms, talismans, candles and symbols. Start a divination skill such as crystal scrying. Cast spells for protection, prosperity, love and happiness.
Over this year you will be challenged to experience many forms of magick and nature based mysticism, in group settings and on your own. Claim your ability to manifest change and sacredness in your life, flowing with the cycles and seasons of the Earth, Moon and Sun. Experience direct tutoring in the practice of modern witchcraft through self-directed study, class discussion, supplementary material and homework.
This year-long course fuses material from The Outer Temple of Witchcraft text (required reading) and The Outer Temple of Witchcraft CD Companion (required listening) with previously unreleased rituals and rites from the Temple of Witchcraft Book of Shadows. In-person students will work with a certified Temple teacher in monthly class sessions. Lessons can vary in size and scope with some months being light and others being more involved. Generally one month is given between assignments and you are expected to complete an assignment before receiving the next.
Students with any issues or questions regarding class material can write directly to the individual teacher of the class.

This is a Mystery Tradition, while we are an eclectic pagan, occult, and even Wicca influenced community of learning, it is a Tradition, and you are on the path of the Initiate in the Temple of Witchcraft.
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. Each individual seeks to live a magickal life. Through these awakenings, we seek an expansion of consciousness through the alignment of our souls with Love, Will, and Wisdom to further the Great Work.
On a greater scale, we seek the restoration, maintenance, and evolution of humanity to the Garden of the Gods, the cooperative consciousness where all things are in harmony and community. Our myths define this awareness as the First Garden, known as Avalon, Hesperides, Zep Tepi, Shamballa, Lemuria, even Eden. We manifest this vision through both our inner workings and service to the greater community. By these actions, we plant the seeds and tend the garden of Witchcraft culture, tradition and community.
Scott K Smith is an Ordained High Priest and Teacher in the Temple of Witchcraft, the Ministry of Aries Lead Minister. Star Stone Education LLC is not the Temple of Witchcraft, we are an independent company, offering the Mystery School Classes, through Scott K Smith.
