Default Re: Where is everyone at with their studies?

Much of the course was material I too was very familiar with - but in connecting with the current and working "as if" it's all new, we gain much. I'm almost done the first two of Mara's courses - I sacrificed that work for years to get through all the herbal study I've done - and I can honestly say I think it's one of the best put-together programs I've seen.


Whether the actual focus is right for you, that should reveal itself as you go.

When I decided Wicca was my path, some thought it was probably because I watched Charmed (true) and wanted to do spells and magick, but it's not my case. I was attracted to Wicca for the spirituality, for the Lord and Lady, for the Mysteries, the connection to the earth, and in my coven celtic shamanism was also quite fun to do. The thing in Wicca I always feel is that you cannot be Wiccan and NOT do spells. I'm not saying I've never done any spells, but that generally I don't do spells, but I felt pressure in my coven that we're Witches and we should do Witchy stuff like spells.

Now that my coven is over, I've been focusing more on the Bardic OBOD course, and I don't feel any pressure to make spells with them for now. I'd like that to take Mara Freeman's courses as well at some point.
