Comments from previous students:

"For anyone considering this i do recommend it. i have participated in this course, even though i have been practicing for years, i have learned so many new and different things which has expanded my sense of who i am as a witch and how i practice. the energy of working in group is amazing and this was the first time i had really experienced it. it completely cracked open some barriers i had to the use of my own power, i didnt even realise i had barriers at all. its a very relaxed and energising experience and no matter how tired you are when you walk in you walk out calm relaxed but energised. its been fabulous Frances, Thank you again for Sharing your wisdom and knowledge.

"Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with me during the Wytch's Circle. In many ways this course has 'kick-started' me on my Wiccan path, providing a solid foundation of traditional practices from which I can build. Looking forward to staying in touch and undertaking more of your training in the future. Thank again. Blessings, Tim"
