Magical Experience, Confidence, and Community

In today’s world, it’s easy to feel disconnected from each other, and our spiritual strengths.

At times, all of us can get overwhelmed by the state of our world, and the amount of information we take in - but much of our suffering can be traced back to a separation from the natural world, and the unique inner powers of intuition and magic inside us. We know there are vibrant ways to reconnect fully with the web of life, instead of looking at it from afar, but it can be frustrating to try and find clear paths to follow.
Shadowfolk Grove: First Steps on the Spiral Path is an in-depth, 35-week course that will lead you through the foundations of Wiccan magic and ritual – pulling together the skills and abilities that make Witchcraft a transformative, life-affirming path. Our Grove course has been taught in person in NYC for over 25 years, guiding hundreds of students on their journey with Wicca in a cohesive, step-by-step way. Now for the first time, we’re offering this course online - take part in live, online rituals and events, a private Facebook discussion group, and live Q&A’s with High Priestesses Denise and JoAnna - all in an inclusive, supportive environment.

Learning the Language of Wicca

We know what it’s like to feel a little lost, or disconnected from our inner purpose and connection to the web of life. Over the last 25 years, the Temple of the Spiral Path’s Shadowfolk Grove course has helped hundreds of students form deep and precious relationships with the natural world, using the foundations of Wiccan magical practice to create positive, lasting changes in their lives. Grove offers a clear, comprehensive course of study for creating effective rituals, practicing spellcraft, and casting circles and sacred space. We help students connect with the four Elements, the Ancestors, and the Gods, as well as with animistic, Earth-honoring ways of being, and the internal, intuitive senses which help us live heart-centered, authentic lives.

What Our Students are Saying...

I just couldn't wait for the next Grove class...

Andi

“I remember I just couldn't wait for the next Grove class, and the next class, and the next… The classes are not just for learning information, it is a place to exchange thoughts with other like-minded people in a safe space, appreciating each others' varying degrees of experience and knowledge, and with everyone on a quest to know more. I am happy to say it has changed my life for the better.”

"I knew I had found a place where I belonged."

Jake

"The experience of going through Grove was transformative for me. I came into Grove when I was at a Crossroads in my spiritual path. After attending a Grove class in the beginning of August, I knew I had found a place where I belonged. The teachers and students welcomed me and treated me with kindness and respect.  I quickly forged new relationships and strong bonds with my fellow classmates. I felt I was in a safe place to learn and study about magic and to engage in my own spiritual path."

The spiritual awakening I have searched for all my life...

Elana

“I studied at the roots of TSP’s Grove tree in 2018 and felt the spiritual awakening I have searched for all my life. Denise and JoAnna live and breath the practices and beliefs they teach. In a time when there seems to always be another new guide for the beginner witch to buy, another YouTube video to watch, another Instagram coven to join, Grove is the course for anyone who is serious about the study of the old ways and the celebration of the wheel of the year.”
