Witchcraft, Magick

Mystical Dragon's Embracing Witchcraft Program

This is a program you study at your own pace and complete within three (3) years of commencement (or sooner if you wish). It will take you deep into the heart of what witchcraft is, what it means to be a witch and how to embrace the lifestyle of one connected to the elements, the seasons, and the magick! You do not have to be stuck in medieval times to adopt and work successfully with the 'Old Ways'. It is possible to take these laws, ethics, and belief systems and bring them into the 21st century to create a more harmonious and healthy lifestyle for yourself and your family.

The Embracing Witchcraft program, is dedicated to rediscovering and reawakening the journey of love and respect for ourselves, our connection to Spirit and our wondrous Earth. We then feel connected on all levels of our being and re-discover the sacred in ourselves and in all that surrounds us.

The path of Witchcraft and spirituality is about moving from a simple conviction or belief to a reality that we live and breathe every single day. A life that brings heartfelt reverence and respect for all of life. Rather than having these ways imposed on us it's about creating this magickal way of life for ourselves. About following the path of the heart, of love, compassion, forgiveness, tolerance, sharing, and gratitude. It brings deep heartfelt connections to the Earth which brings us closer to understanding ourselves and trusting our intuition and helps us to foster a sense of belonging and Love for all things while reminding us that we are part of the Divine whole.

Many Witches who study the traditional paths acknowledge that one must study the path of a Witch for a minimum of the turn of a Wheel (a year and a day) before they can be taken seriously by the wider Wiccan community and can initiate themselves as a Witch. This program, and the way it has been structured, is the perfect way to accomplish such an initiation period and offers an opportunity for students to self-dedicate in a very special group ritual at its completion.

About Your Program Facilitators

Amanda Godfrey is the founder of Mystical Dragon and created the Embracing Witchcraft program. Harmony Carbone, Raylee Pandur and Amanda Godfrey are the teachers of the workshops for the program in 2019. These ladies have each been personally following the path of witchcraft for quite a number of years and each bring their own unique perspective to the workshops and topics they teach. We feel that by utilizing more than 1 teacher for this program students gain a greater amount of experience, thoughts and inspiration for their own practices. See individual webpages or brochures for who is teaching what workshop and more on each teacher’s background.


Amanda says
“When I found the path of Witchcraft at the age of 13, I felt like I had ‘come home’. Connecting to Mother Earth, to Nature, to the Elements, the Seasons and the Moon gave me such peace and comfort. The ancient myths and traditions are intriguing to delve into, plus there is herb lore, colours, divination, crystals and so much more knowledge always waiting to be soaked up!! I consider Witchcraft a beautiful way of life, rather than simply a religion. It is all about embracing the world around us everyday - connecting with the seasons, animals, plants, and the often unseen world of Deity, Elementals and Spirit.”
