WHAT WE DO...
All our lessons are original and combine our background in Wicca, Kitchen Witchcraft, Druidry, Folk Magic and Wild Witchcraft.
All homework is reviewed by the School Elder, Witch and Author Rachel Patterson
Each lesson is taken at your own pace, with Rachel and her team of Hearth Guardians to help with any questions or queries you have as well as supporting you throughout your entire journey with us. We also provide on line journals for you to document each step of the way.
All lessons, study circles and rituals for the school are run online so it doesn't matter where you are in the world!
Our Forest of Oak includes 21 lessons covering:
Introduction & what is a witch, Energy & protection, Meditation & visualisation, Wheel of the Year, The Moon, Deity & offerings, The Elements: Earth, Air & weather magic, The Elements: Fire, Water & bone magic, Spell writing, Ritual, Magical tools & altars, Record keeping, Candle magic, The Sun, Animal magic, The Fairy realm, Divination, Healing, Crystals, Herbalism & wildcrafting, Nature's Magical Bounty.
This is our 'first degree' equivalent, giving a broad outline of the basic building blocks of the Craft, it is good for beginners but also good for those that have some experience but want some structured learning and also good for those that have experience but would like a 'refresher'.
If you then want to move onwards, we also have the Forest of Ash, also containing 21 lessons covering different subjects: Colour magic, chakras, auras, moon magic, amulets/talismans, mediumship/psychic abilities, dreams/astral travel, magical oils, kitchen magic, nature spirits, magical gardening, magic of trees, city/crossroads, numerology, the Triple Goddess, hexes/curses/banishings, symbols/sigils, pathworking, earth mysteries, planetary magic and dragon magic.
And following on from that the Forest of Hawthorn with 15 lessons in rites of passage, hedge riding, ritual, death and transition, medicine wheel, dark gods and goddesses, coven, historical pagans, sacred texts, pagan living, spiritual mentoring, magic, shadow work and extra challenges.
After completion of the Forest of Oak you will receive a certificate and the title Priest/ess of the Oak, after completion of the Forest of Ash you will receive a certificate and the title Priest/ess of the Ash, after completion of the Forest of Hawthorn you will receive a certificate and the title Priest/ess of the Hawthorn.
There is then the option to also move on to become a High Priest/ess.
Our school also includes branch lessons where you can study a particular subject such as tarot, runes or crystals and includes an extensive Grimoire that is being added to all the time.
We also run regular live online rituals, study halls and Zoom chats in our private fb group.
At Kitchen Witch we want to unlock the Witch Within you.
What we strive to do is to get each person to work with their intuition and instinct.
Note: We do have an age limit for the school - you must be over 18 to join.
There is no registration fee.

Option to take HPs trainingPLEASE NOTE
: This is not an 'instant' or '5 minute' quick fix to Witchcraft. Our course is a comprehensive journey. The first level has 21 lessons, we recommend each one take at least two weeks. The second level also has 21 lessons, again we recommend at least two weeks for each lesson. The third level has 15 lessons but they are more in depth. You don't have to work through all three levels, that is absolutely your choice. But it will take some time to work through properly. Your subscription can be cancelled at any time or paused for you to come back at a later date. Do not expect to complete the entire course in a matter of weeks!
