In this thirteen-month course you will be exposed to various practices of magic, spirituality, and witchcraft which are informed by several different yet resonant schools of traditional magical praxis. This course draws on the knowledge and experience of three different teachers of the Craft who each are initiates in various forms of witchcraft both traditional and modern.
Each month you will receive a recorded podcast in which Devin, Chas, and Storm will discuss the philosophies and practices central to that month’s theme. You will then receive weekly lessons pertaining to that theme in the form of written materials and art in PDF format, suitable for printing out and putting in your Book of Shadows. You will also receive pre-recorded trance journeys via MP3s and pre-recorded rituals that you will perform alongside. Some lessons will require the performing of certain rituals in which simple materials, such as candles, salt, and some herbs may be required. These items may be purchased at The Mystic Dream or your local occult shop. Some lessons will require focused writing or even the creation of art. You will be expected to record your experiences with this work in a personal journal as well as participate in the online forums by posting a weekly check-in and commenting to at least 2 other class member’s posts. For those individuals who may wish to augment this work with private sessions we have made available to active students of Black Rose 1/2 off our normal hourly rate. You will be given special instructions on how to book these sessions with us. These extra sessions are not required but can be used to better help you with certain aspects of the work either by having us personally lead you in trance, or simply to have a deeper discussion than email generally allows for.
During the course of this class you will be expected to engage in a regular meditative practice, perform certain rituals, keep a journal, participate in the online discussions, and even create art. Since there is no homework to turn in you are responsible for making sure that you perform the rites to the best of your ability. In this class, as in life, you will get out precisely what you put in. There are no substitutes for experience.
Members are given access to the Black Rose Group; a private area of the Mystic Dream Academy where members can discuss their experiences with the work, share spells or poetry, engage in conversations both Craft-related and non, as well as access our collection of correspondences, view the Black Rose Events Calendar, and more.

Listen to a special “sneak preview” of Black Rose on the Modern Witch Podcast:
The Black Rose School of Witchcraft is a unique learning experience for modern practitioners of the craft who wish to dive deeper into the occult mysteries. With a combined knowledge base of over 75 years we are founded by three of today’s leading teachers on the subject: Storm Faerywolf, Chas Bogan, and Devin Hunter.
What makes Black Rose so unique? Our lessons contain threads of magic from the Feri Tradition, Dianic Witchcraft, Wicca, and Modern Conjure. This means that our material has been flushed out and enhanced to bring our students the most well rounded approach to the craft possible. The content presented here is the very best from the past ten years of teaching classes both online and in-person.
Another thing that makes us unique is that we teach this same material at our physical location as well as online. Unlike other schools we have been teaching magic, metaphysics, and the occult in our Walnut Creek, CA location for over twenty years, making us one of the most trusted and sought after resources in the field today. When you join Black Rose you are joining an established organization with real life experience.
Black Rose will be adding an in-person satellite location in Newark, Ohio starting this September!
The Black Rose initiation is a ceremony designed to awaken the “witch power”; the hidden potential in certain individuals to direct the primal forces of the world and bend them to their will.
This initiation can be viewed as similar to a “first degree” as commonly found in 3 degree systems such as Wicca. For those that wish to pursue a lineage in the priesthood of the Craft there are two options for further intensive study: Sacred Fires and BlueRose.
While every effort is made to ensure the effectiveness of the rite, owing to the unique nature of magic and spirit, not everyone who receives the initiation rite will experience the inner awakening. Students who have completed the curriculum are welcome to receive it again for no charge as long as there is room in the class. Preference is given to those students who have not yet received the rite.
