Applications are now open for the Temple of the Dark Moon‘s Outer Court Training Circle. This will be the first Outer Court Training Circle that we have held in about four years. As such places are limited as the end goal for potential neophytes is entry into the Temple’s Inner Court via dedication and initiation (for those suitable).
Desirable applicants would be those who have already undergone some degree of training and study with us, in particular through the Gathering around the Cauldron and The Wytch’s Circle, and as a result of this initial training, have determined that contemporary witchcraft is something they resonate with and which they would like to study and explore more deeply. Consideration will also be given to those who may have been working as a solitary or as part of another group, and who would like to become a member of the Temple of the Dark Moon.
Prior to contacting our High Priestess to advise her of your desire, we ask all potential neophytes to consider their own desires when it comes to walking a spiritual path that is imbued with magick. After all, regardless of whether we are a coven member or solitary, an initiate or not, every of us is ultimately responsible for our own spiritual growth and development. While it may be fun to belong to a group, in order for such membership to be of mutual beneficial for all concerned, we ask that the following questions be considered:
- What am I interested in at this stage? Is it exploration into the deeper mysteries that esoteric training may provide; religious, spiritual or even paranormal experiences; a better understanding of myself; fellowship with likeminded people; belonging to a group?
- Is the Temple of the Dark Moon the right group for me? Do I agree with their philosophies (available on the web page), their teaching methods? Do I feel comfortable with the High Priestess, and the other people I have met through the Temple of the Dark Moon?
- Why do I want to join the Temple’s Outer Court? Am I interested in a more traditional approach to contemporary wytchcraft as opposed to mainstream Wicca, Druidry, Paganism in general?
- Am I honestly able to make time available for the personal study and training that is involved during the Temple of the Dark Moon’s Outer Court Training Circle?
Having given the above consideration, if you wish to apply for one of the limited places within the Outer Court Training Circle then you are invited to contact the Temple of the Dark Moon by emailing our High Priestess. As preference is given to previous attendees, those successful will be provided with an application form setting out the requirements for the Outer Court Training Circle. It is important that these requirements are read thoroughly as applications for the training circle will close Saturday, 15 December 2018.
For anyone interested in commencing their training with the Temple of the Dark Moon, we will be holding an extended version of The Wytch’s Circle, that will commence on Thursday, 21 February 2019 and will be held on a fortnightly basis for a total of six sessions. As places are strictly limited we have made available a payment plan option.
