Online Magic School: For Real?

People email us all the time asking three basic questions:

1. Is magic real?
2. Is your school real?
3. Can I really learn magic and shamanism online?

The answer to the first two questions is, "Yes." Read up in our library of articles to discover the "reality" of magic. The good news is that you can access these articles right now, immediately. That's one of the benefits of interacting with an online magic school ... you can let your fingers do the walking.

As to the second question, our online magic school is indeed a real incorporated entity. We have been a real school dedicated to spreading magic and shamanism to all who wish to learn since 1997. The school, while virtual, is an active ongoing teaching institute.

Ancient Tribal Traditions in Modern Times
As to the third question--whether one can actually learn magic and shamanism online--that has more to do with you than anything else. Some people object to an online magic school because in the past, this kind of information has been passed on through oral, written, and face-to-face interactions.

In some tribal traditions, magical information was considered such a closely-guarded secret that it was passed on only through oral traditions. Each new generation of magicians and shamans had to memorize and personally learn the entire body of knowledge.

Other traditions are less tightly controlled. In these traditions, a combination of oral interaction and written words is considered the way to pass on the information. However, even in these traditions the written word is closely guarded--with almost cult-like fanaticism.

And then there is our online magic school. We offer magic rituals and shamanic teachings through a combination of the written word, audio files, videos, and select live teleconferences. Why have we chosen to break with traditions and use these alternate channels? Several reasons:
  1. Magical knowledge guards itself. There is no need to protect it.
  2. People live in a digital world. Magical and shamanic knowledge must be taught through modern channels if we are to preserve it.
  3. People need magic and shamanism now more than ever. Providing this knowledge through multiple channels allows people to learn in the way that is most effective for them: the written word, the spoken word, or visual images.
So magic and shamanism are being brought into the modern world, but can YOU learn this knowledge from an online magic school such as this one? That is the million dollar question.

The Million Dollar Question
The answer to that question is ... it depends on you. If you have been drawn to magic and shamanism, that means that you have a strong Magnetic Center. If you have a strong Magnetic Center, chances are that you are equally able to learn in an online magic school as in some ancient tribal tradition.

It's all a matter of desire. Not sure if an online magic school is for you? Don't dive right in. Instead, just dip your toes into the pool and see if you get any good mojo back from it. Consider checking out the:
