The Thirteenth House Mystery School Tradition offers a 13 week Introduction to the Philosophy and Ritual Practice of Witchcraft. 

A 13th HOUSE INTRODUCTION TO WICCA

A 13 week beginners course taught by facilitators of the 13th House Mystery School Tradition, offered twice yearly in the spring and fall in Victoria, BC, Canada.

The course is designed for women and men 19 and over who are beginning to explore an interest in wicca and enjoy an experiential approach to learning.

The 13th House tradition was formalized on the fall equinox of 1993 and is a creative eclectic tradition with a focus on teaching, healing and the arts. This course is a culmination of many years of collective experience and exploration of the craft, and a reflection of the diverse and rich variety of backgrounds and practices which the facilitators of the tradition bring to the classroom.

The 13th House Mystery School Tradition is dedicated to the facilitation of self realization and self expression through creative acts.

All classes will be taught "in circle" in order to create a sacred space for learning, sharing and working.
