Welcome to The School Of Witchcraft
Shamans, medicine women, healers, witches,…. many terms from different cultures with one and the same mission – to serve humanity and nature.
Since 1998, people of all genders and from all over the world have the opportunity to be trained in our online School of Witchcraft to become a certified Venefica or a Veneficus (lat. =Witch).
But, is it really possible to learn witchcraft online?
Well, a lot of people think that attending a „normal“ course in your surroundings with „real“ people is better than an online education… well, of course it is! However, it’s not quite easy to find professional schools of witchcraft and wizardry nearby, is it?
And of course you could come over here to Europe, to Austria to attend our school but the education you can find here is a professional one which lasts longer than only one or two weekends. Actually you will spend some time together with us and hopefully also after you will have finished the education we will still hear a lot from you!
We have made the experience that people who come to short weekend courses are very happy during the course. They enjoy it, they relax and they feel really good as long as the course is taking place.
However afterwards they have to return home and as soon as they have returned the daily routine fills their minds and their lives again and the happiness and magic of the course has vanished as quick as it has come.
As you will learn soon, being a witch is a way of life and you have to learn to integrate it into your own one. You have to integrate and merge this new way of thinking, acting and living into your daily routine. No other way would ever work!
Our way of teaching
So actually more than 20 years ago we were discussing this problem and trying to find a solution for it.
Finally we decided to stop the courses we offered before. We redesigned the complete education and all our curricula and were very creative how to make the education to be work and fun at the same time because nothing works better than learning with pleasure!
That’s the way we turned to an online school because now you can take us home with you and let us accompany you wherever you live! That’s the main point!
Cause we do not want to sell happiness, satisfaction and witchy magic only for a short moment.
We want to offer it to you for your lifetime!
So before you learn more about the witchy education, let’s take a look about what a witch really is!
However, actually there are many different ideas about this topic and many of them are based on late medieval superstitions and fairy tales.
We are sure that you already know that they have nothing to do with reality at all. 🙂
A „Witch“ – What’s that actually?
For this explanation we prefer the word „hag“ which is more similar to the German word „Hexe“ for „witch“. An etymological explanation you can find here.
„Hag“ – the hedge-rider – a person who is riding on a hedge.
However, this is not just any hedge, but the hedge that separates the world on this side from the world on the other side, the so-called „other world“.
A witch can switch between these worlds and thus mediate!
Witches are (and were) special people who make it their life’s task to help other people as well as „Mother Nature“ and to guide them through times of crisis with their wisdom.
Witches were: Midwives, healers, herbalists, psychologists, spiritual guides, naturalists in general, sociologists, but also magicians, visionaries, astrologers, dowsers, cartographers, priests of the prevailing natural religion, and so on.
Since most parts of this formerly holistic „job description“ have been dismembered into specialized individual occupations, people have lost their spiritual contact with themselves, other beings and nature.
Today’s main task of witches is to re-establish a holistic consciousness for themselves and others.
The School Of Witchcraft
Our school was founded in order to restore the old, correct image of witches – away from the indoctrinated image of the „evil sorceresses“, which they were denounced only in the Middle Ages by a misunderstood and abused religious power.
We impart the knowledge of witches not only from a spiritual point of view, but also use modern scientific knowledge and explanations to the same extent.
Our witch school is not (in the negative sense) an esoteric or religious association!
Interested people of all denominations as well as „followers“ of the scientific worldview can attend our school with a clear conscience…
… But there is a warning:
Witches are free and nature-loving creatures. They are solely responsible for their own conscience and intuition – they are free in every aspect!
The way of the witch is NOT a hobby! Culstar, the School of Witchcraft, offers a well-founded module-based and professional education!
To be a witch is a way of life!
If you are ready to explore the world with new eyes, to liberate the „wild woman“, the „wild man“ inside of you, to direct your life to your intuition and to live a life in harmony with the rhythms of nature – then you have come to the right place!
