Deeper Wisdom of the Circle

Crafting Yourself as Mother' Nature's Witch - Level 1 Study Program

  Enroll in Course

Welcome to the Deeper Wisdom of the Circle!

Here's what you'll get by enrolling in Level One...


In this 9-session workshop, you'll go on a transformational journey as you learn to experience the divine power that resides within each one of us and the world around us. You'll learn to understand the meaning and magic of the sacred circle, one of humanity’s most ancient spiritual symbols and practices. We will also explore how the circle connects us to the web of life, with the Great Mother and how to engage with Immanent and Immediate Divinity.

This is the heart of the Ara Tradition–to experience our union with the Divine present in all Creation. We will guide you in the whys and hows of ancient, animistic techniques and practices that empower us to experience this communion and to create the miraculous in our everyday lives.

HOW THIS PROGRAM WORKS

The course itself is a self-paced, online course consisting of videotaped classes and rigorous fieldwork. You choose how quickly or how deliberate and measured you want to engage with the learnings. Support from our Elder Clergy via email is available to you at all times along the way.

WANT TO SHARE YOUR EXPERIENCES WITH PEOPLE OF LIKE MINDS?

If you're interested in exploring your experiences with others on the same path, you have the option of joining our newly launched Study Group program at no additional registration fees.

By joining the Study Group program, you'll refine understanding through discussion, foster creativity, challenge assumptions, stay better focused and on track with your practices. We've heard from many of you that having structured "classroom" time helps you follow through with your field work. And many love the opportunity to share experiences with one another. Plus, each Study Group is facilitated by one of our Clergy members.

HOW DOES STUDY GROUP WORK?

You'll enroll in the self-paced version, engage with the video lessons, engage with the fieldwork and then approximately twice a month, join in on our online Study Group sessions. After enrolling, we'll email you instructions on how to join a Study Group.

If you're not able to join us for a Study Group, you remained enrolled in the self-paced version and still receive all the benefits of the program.

If you've already enrolled in this program, you can still join the Study Group. If it's been a while since you've engaged with the course contents, we recommend that you start from the beginning with a beginner's mind. We are routinely updating the contents of our programs so chances are it's different than the first time you engaged with the course.

"As a result of taking this class, so much has changed! But the most important could be described as a kind of integration. I am specifically grateful for having so many “peak experiences” outside with more-than-human nature in which I felt like I slipped into a more expansive, slower, more vibrant rhythm/mode of experiencing life. I’m glad that I made time throughout each week to engage with the teachings/videos, to go out into nature, to practice what I had learned, to reflect on the field work, and to build this regular practice into my weekly schedule."

Frequently Asked Questions


How long do I have to complete each session and field work assignments?
We recommend that you dedicate one full week to each session. Try not to rush through anything – especially if you want to continue on to Level Two. You’ll need time to integrate your practices. On the flip side, try not to let too much time elapse between sessions. If you're participating in a Study Group, we ask that you complete the recommended video lecture and fieldwork associated with the topic of the particular Study Group session.
How do I access field work?
After enrolling in this study program, you will be given a Google folder on the Temple's Google Drive. Your field work will be uploaded directly into your personal folder on a weekly basis.
Are there any required textbooks for this course?
No - this course is self-contained. PLEASE NOTE: This program is not a rehash of Phyllis Curott's books. Those books are a point of entry that provide easy-to-understand mechanics, structure and vocabulary for those who are just starting to explore Wicca as a whole. Her 101 books do not represent the depth and breadth of the Temple’s teachings. Instead they are an introduction (albeit brief) to the Tradition’s deeper purpose, perspective and philosophy. ALSO NOTE: The Temple and Tradition of Ara is not a general Wicca path.
When will Study Groups be held?
We aim to hold Study Groups twice a year, depending if we get a minimum of 6 students per. If minimum numbers are not met, you can still participate in the Self-Paced version..
How long do I have access to the course?
If you maintain your membership in the Temple, you will have free access to the Self-Paced version for the life of the program. Non-members will have access to this course for 9 months from date of enrollment.
What's the difference between the Study Group and the Self-Paced program?
The Study Group was created to help you connect with other students who are also enrolled in the program. The process remains the same: You'll enroll in the self-paced version, engage with the video lessons, engage with the fieldwork and then approximately twice a month, join in on our online Study Group sessions. After enrolling, we'll email you instructions on how to join a Study Group. If you're not able to join us for a Study Group, you remained enrolled in the self-paced version and still receive all the benefits of the program. If you've already enrolled in this program, you can still join the Study Group. If it's been a while since you've engaged with the course contents, we recommend that you start from the beginning with a beginner's mind. We are routinely updating the contents of our programs so chances are it's different than the first time you engaged with the course.
Will the Study Group always be held Eastern Time?
Once we have enough interest from people in different areas of the U.S., Canada & Europe, we'll create Study Groups in different time zones. We need a minimum of 6 participants to hold a Study Group.
How do I participate in Outer Grove?
Outer Grove is a program for members of the Temple of Ara - enroll in our Membership Training program, Crossing into the Mysteries, complete the fieldwork and then you'll receive an invitation to join Outer Grove.
What is Initiation in the Temple of Ara tradition?
One of the most profound rites in the Ara Tradition is that of Initiation. Ara’s unique Initiation rituals are cathartic rites of passage in which you embark on a renewed spiritual journey of discovery. To qualify for an invitation to Initiation, you must successfully complete all 3 levels of our Initiatory prep program. To learn more, visit our web site: www.templeofara.net
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us within the first 30 days of your enrollment and we will give you a refund minus a $15 processing fee.
