Magical Lineages & Training

I’ve been practicing sorceress for well over a decade, and have been a professional practitioner for just as long.

My background in the magical and occult arts is extensive, well-rounded, and getting a bit hard to track at this point. Outside of my own scholarly research and specific course working, I am a spirit-led practitioner: my relationship and ability to communicate directly with the spirits I work with, and to burn my own fingers on my craft, will (almost) always trump a book or other resource, with some exceptions (I will never claim a title, authority, or lineage I have no rights to.) I strive to learn about cultural traditions that are not ethnically my own through primary source materials (when possible), oral transmission & direct accounts, and through traditional observation with direct oversight from the community of origin.

Active learning and service-oriented learning works well for me and is how I have accumulated my body of knowledge + wisdom. I use the variety of avenues and tools available to me as a practitioner to engage in ongoing learning, and complement this with practical skills and training to support making my talents practical and effective.

TRAINING & INSTRUCTION

This section does not include the countless hours of research and active practice of my craft(s) and skills. It simply documents some – but not all – of my formal training as a magical practitioner. Some of these are self-guided courses that I have worked through in full on my own. Bolded listings were directly supervised. This does not include the hundreds of hours of hands-on work, the extensive reading I’ve done, or my work in private with information and instruction I’ve received through direct gnosis.
