Welcome to WiccanSeminary.EDU
Thanks for joining. To begin your studies, we invite you to attend one of the many discussions, rituals or events at our 3-D Virtual Online Campus. There are many events available for you to attend at the school, as upper classmen are required to host and organize events as part of their training. Please come and see what fun things the students come up with. You will also find many helpful, new friends available to answer your questions.
Be sure to explore and begin enjoying our public campus today.
Below are step by step instructions for getting to the 3D, virtual-world, Second Life campus, and for setting up your internet account on the school website. For the optimal experience in the school, you must do both, Second Life, and the website account by your Sophomore year. All of your text, and assignments will be found on the website, classes are held in Second Life. If your computer will not run Second Life, we suggest you upgrade your hardware. Your school experience will be greatly affected by your ability to come in-world. Unlike other colleges, where you may have to drive to school, stay in a dorm room, etc, our only physical requirement is that your computer can handle the graphics in the school. No matter how you slice it, it’s the least expensive way to attend college.
Here are step by step instructions, if you need them.
Thank you for your interest in our University. We are delighted to have you. WiccanSeminary.EDU is recognized by the state of Washington Board of Higher Education and has degree granting authority. Therefore, certain entrance policies must be followed. Please complete the following steps to get started. If you need help, contact KaraDrachnyd@yahoo.com.
Create an online account at www.WiccanSeminary.US (NOTE – this looks different from WiccanSeminary.EDU, please do not be alarmed. This is your classroom, it IS different from the home webpage.)
Enroll in the Public Education Series of classes – this is ongoing and FREE – you can join at any point. This series will introduce you to our school, Second Life®, and the classes we offer. Many of your questions will be answered here!
After the Public Education Series, the next set of classes you will want to register for are the Freshman classes: Wicca 101/2/3, Wicca 106, and Ritual 101. They are offered in 8 week sessions and repeat twice a year – except for Wicca 106 which is a year long class and you can join at any point.
Create an online account with Second Life® at www.secondlife.com. Again, this is Free! For detailed instructions of how to find the ONLINE Campus go to: www.wiccanseminary.edu and click on “Student Union” in the upper right corner. This will walk you through the process. PLEASE NOTE – You do NOT have to participate in Second Life to attend school.
Go in-world, create your avatar and participate in the basic orientation class offered by Second Life®. Then contact us and get started getting to know your school! Please note, you are attending school in what is essentially a different country. It will take some getting used to. If you have trouble, ask any available staff member for help. Also, you will find most everyone in Second Life is very considerate of newcomers, and will be very helpful in answering questions.
We have a fully interactive campus on Second Life®. We hold class labs, rituals, social events, interviews, meetings, etc there in-world. You do not have to participate in Second Life to take the classes and attend the chat sessions. However, we highly recommend this platform as a dynamic interactive daily learning center. So much so that it has enabled us to create an initiatory program. Note – To participate in the initiatory program, participation in Second Life is a requirement. Please read the technology requirements document.
Once you’ve decided this is the school for you, fill out the student profile page completely. This is your application to the Seminary and will be checked for completeness. Please note, you can view all of the information, but others can not. Only the Administrators have access to all of your information. Take a minute to view other profiles if you want to, so that you can see how your information will appear to others.
Now, you are now fully registered and ready to go!
Please contact BelladonnaLaveau@gmail.com or KaraDrachnyd@yahoo.com if you have any problems or questions getting signed up for class.
Again, Welcome to WiccanSeminary.EDU!
****IMPORTANT NOTE FOR EXPERIENCED SEEKERS****
Because we are a state-recognized University, faculty members must have either:
a teaching degree, or another comparable degree (i.e. Botanist, for herbology), or
a Wiccan 3rd Degree (2nd with HPs agreed supervision)
Both/either of which will be researched, referenced, and documented in your permanent record. Due to the lack of Universities to award Wiccan Degrees, we can grandfather those with recorded Wiccan credentials.
If you do not have the above, we do not currently offer any program that will certify you based on your real world experience that we have never witnessed. Clerical certification requires proven service “under supervision”. Please see your supervising High Priest/ess if you desire written credentials. If you do not have a supervising High Priest/ess and still desire real world recognition and ministerial credentials, we will be happy to supervise and validate your service while you are a student in the school. There is no other way to gain credentials. If you have skills, we promise to provide opportunities for you to share them in the school. We want to help you be successful, and we will not put unnecessary obstacles in your way. You will be able to perform rituals, do healings, and minister at the school to the level of your abilities, and you will be elevated based on these skills, in balance with your scholastic abilities. Qualified, self-taught students rise up through the ranks quickly. Dedicated students can work through our training system in about 14 months.
