Temple of the Spiral Path


"Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better."  

--Albert Einstein

Shadowfolk Grove: First Steps On the Spiral Path is an intensive course, introducing students to basic ritual structure, comparative mythology, sacred music and art, spellcraft, guided journey work, and more. 

Classwork is balanced between the intellectual and the intuitive, including lectures, meditations, discussions, class projects, and ritual work. Throughout the summer, students also work together to craft and celebrate Sabbats with members of the Temple. The registration form for our 2018 Grove in NYC is now online. Classes will take place each Saturday from April 7th through the end of October.

We ask for a $15 donation per class to cover the costs of space and materials, but no-one will be turned away.



Shadowfolk Grove: First Steps on the Spiral Path is an educational outreach project of The Temple of the Spiral Path.  

Our teaching collective is committed to providing excellent instruction to those seeking the Wiccan Way.

Our coursework, including the Grove and Hearthfire programs, focuses on magical communication with the elemental forces of Nature and rediscovering synchronicity with the rhythms of the natural world.

Students who successfully complete the Grove curriculum may also be invited to join our intermediate-to-advanced level Hearthfire program, offered by invitation only, and which is taught by the full complement of the Shadowfolk Teaching Collective.



"Man’s mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions." 

--Oliver Wendell Holmes

The Shadowfolk Grove curriculum is intense, exciting, creative, and deeply transformative.  After completion of this full cycle of classes, you will have co-created and celebrated Sabbat rituals with Temple members, learned the foundational skills of magic and ritual work, and will also have a complete set of Wiccan ritual tools, ready for your use as you continue on your spiritual path. Please note that any student under the age of 18 must provide the written permission of their parent or guardian in order to attend classes.

If you feel that you are called to explore the Western Mystery traditions and experience them for yourself in a community of like-minded seekers, fill out the online registration form, and we will look forward to seeing you in class.
