For the Student

thegathering-veronica_atanacio_Student classes are scheduled to start in Fall of 2016, and will normally be held every other Sunday. Rhys will begin to meet with prospective students in the 6 months prior, as only a small number of students will be accepted.  Because the members of the coven work so closely together, we become as family, so it is important to ensure a good balance of personalities and energy.  Everyone within our coven, including the student, gets the opportunity to compose and participate in ritual.  The study classes last approximately one year, after which a student may request initiation if he or she desires.  There is no obligation on the part of student or coven to initiate after classes are finished.  Some of the topics that you can expect to learn about within your first year with Circle of the Wild Wood are:

Orientation    Wicca

History of Witchcraft


The Goddess Her Aspects

The God     His Aspects

Wheel of the Year             Yule to Beltane

Wheel of Year Litha to Samhain

Tools of the Craft

Elements and Invocations


Creating Sacred Space

Ritual Design

Lunar Cycles,  Celebrations


Ogham    Celtic Tree


Color Healing/ Chakras





 Energy and Psychic Work


Classes are taught from Jungian perspectives and philosophies.  All levels of Wild Wood Initiates attend the classes.  We find that this integration of experience will resonate with new Wiccan as well as the solitary practitioner who has studied for years.
