We firmly believe that the Magickal community should have access to Free courses as well. Just by signing up to the site you can access our basic package, outlined below,†without paying a penny.
More information on the packages and courses can be found by browsing the navigation on the left of the screen.
We strongly believe that an education in Wicca, the Tarot and related magickal subjects is everyoneís right. We did not want to go down the road of charging our students a fortune and felt that a fair pricing system seemed the right thing to do. The money we make goes into maintaining and developing the site as a resource for the Pagan community. We believe that our honesty and fairness will create a successful, respected and thriving On-line magickal community.†
Yes, they are! You can access the Wicca Revealed and Beginnerís Tarot courses without paying a penny. We also†hope that having seen what we have to offer you will want to buy a life time or subscription membership to the site.
Maintaining a website and writing materials takes time and costs money. We have to be able to recover our costs and be in a position to effectively develop what we have to offer.
No. We decided a long time ago that we did not want to go down this path. There are a number of sites that offer Wiccan initiations and degree systems -these differ widely in quality and in price. The whole issue of on-line initiations and degrees can be deeply controversial within the Wiccan community. We take the view that we should explain to our students the various options open to them; be it joining an established Wiccan tradition and progressing through initiation and degrees: self initiation and setting up a coven of your own with a degree system: or self initiation and practising as a solitary witch. The whole idea is to give unbiased knowledge and empower students to decide for themselves. We do, however, explain how to self-initiate and on completion of both Wicca courses students will have the skills and knowledge range of most Second Degree witches.
Currently we are in the middle of writing a range of other courses. These cover subjects such as Astrology and Magick. These will be added to the site in 2008 and 2009. These will be available, at no extra charge, to†paying†members.
Our school is located in the hill top village of Mulazzo. The poet Dante is its most famous visitor to date and he is something of a symbol for our community. Vacation students can see the statue in one of the village piazzas. When designing the site, the photo, taken by Magicka School friend Sam Hayder, looked just right.
In Italian magica means magical. We decided to add a ďkĒ into the spelling to distinguish it from sites offering an education in the art of being a stage magician. We also wanted a name that would reflect the wide extent of the schoolís courses.
All of the photos of the village and the local area were taken by Magicka School or our friend Sam Hayder. Most of the other images come from www.morguefile.com, an unbelievably large royalty free source of pictures on the internet, all shot by amateur photographers. There are also some instances of alchemical art from The Book of Lambspring.
The lesson graphics were either designed by Magicka School or Duncan (see below). The main site graphics were also by Duncan.†
These are copies of Pentacles from the Key of Solomon the King (Clavicula Salomonis). They have been specially chosen for their positive and protective properties. You may notice that they have been arranged in the order of Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Sol, Venus, Mercury, Moon -the Kabbalists amongst you will know why.
The site was constructed by Duncan at www.intelliweb.co.uk , it was designed in close consultation with Magicka School. We think you'll agree Duncan has done a fantastic, world-class job, and at a very reasonable price we might add.
C.E. stands for Common Era and means the same as A.D., Anno Domini or the Year of our Lord. B.C.E. stands for Before Common Era and corresponds to B.C. or Before Christ. We decided to use C.E. and B.C.E. as not everyone feels comfortable using Christianised measurements of time and they make easily understood alternatives.
