Our Goals

It is our desire to provide open, honest education and a safe learning environment for students of all ages, creeds, genders, orientations, and backgrounds. We strive for equality in all things and do not discriminate against any applicant for any reason. Beyond this, we want to provide a well rounded metaphysical education for all of our students regardless of their level.

To do this we have a few simple tenets.

  • Science and Faith (magic) are not exclusive modes of education but inclusive ones. The build and interact positively with one another.  It is our desire to help bring the conscious, subconscious, emotional, mental, and spiritual selves of our students into harmony.
  • We are an inclusive community and coven. We cherish and are grateful for the diversity which each individual brings to the community.  We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, color, sex, age, veteran status, or disability.
