AN INNOVATIVE PAGAN COMMUNITY
WitchesWorkshop has been the first point of contact for many Australian witches and pagans since 1999. In a country as large as Australia, providing an accessible and open online community can be a challenge, but our inclusive approach has made WitchesWorkshop one of the most interesting and successful Facebook pagan groups available.
WitchesWorkshop has always held an open-door to those seeking to contribute to the running of workshops, social meet-ups, retreats, and witch camps. WitchesWorkshop actively helps in the development of the cultural and educational life of Australian pagans and witches by promoting and sponsoring members’ projects.
The WitchesWorkshop Facebook group offers support to anyone seeking involvement in the pagan and witchcraft community. We also encourage those providing creative and innovative projects, that helps to enhance the life of the community, to use the group to promote and invite involvement. We are inclusive of the many different types of pagan lifestyles, spirituality, and practices. Our members are well informed and are engaged in the news and projects that concern pagans.
Join our Facebook group for discussion and news on what's happening in the Australia and internationally pagan and witchcraft communities.

TRANSFORMING THEORY INTO PRACTICE
This is the place to begin your journey in the practice of witchcraft and psychic development. The workshop classes are designed to help guide you in experiencing the transformative power of ritual.
Your instructor has over 40 years of experience in providing workshops to explore the witch’s craft. The workshops are regularly scheduled, or once there are at least 5 participants.
“The course you put on was great, it felt like we learnt a lot, but are just at the very beginning of something.”
“We both enjoyed doing your workshop and felt that it was very beneficial in enhancing our knowledge of the Craft and we would be more than happy to be considered for participation in a beginners Coven circle.”
“Your workshop was a great pleasure for me; and “The Magician” card I drew, a nice confirmation. Trevor was particularly a delight to meet, an instant kindred spirit.”
A NIGHT SOUL JOURNEY
There are times in our lives when all external wisdom fails and the only way forward is to discover a new path and new strengths within the Self. This is when we know we are ready for change and we can confidently undertake the journey of Initiation. The NOX ritual is a reconnecting bridge across the desert of uncertainty, your passport to the retrieval of soul-knowledge.
In many cultures, magick is the practice of working with the psychic reality. The NOX ritual and workshop provides an in-depth exploration of trance in the experience of a personal psychic reality.
No matter what level of experience you may have in the practice of magick or ritual, the NOX workshop will significantly progress your studies in the Western Mystery Traditions and personal psychic experience.
THE SYDNEY WITCH CRAFT GROUP
You are invited to the witches’ sabbat. Eight times a year we gather to celebrate the sabbats, tracing the Sun's journey around the witches’ Wheel of the Year. These are open pagan rituals honouring and marking the changes in the yearly cycle of the seasons. Come and experience how the seasons reflect in our own lives. WitchesWorkshop and Pangenta’s Cauldron are proud to sponsor and support The Covenstead sabbats of the Sydney Witch Craft Meetup group.
A WORKSHOP COURSE IN GROUP RITUAL
Are you ready to continue your magickal work to the next level? This course offers a unique understanding of the transformative power of coven ritual. The classes provide a more extensive involvement to your experience in the mysterié tradition of Wicca and the witch’s craft.
This is the next stage in your involvement toward initiation. We will examine the inner workings of the witches’ coven, the meaning of initiation, and how to enter more deeply into ritual and the psychic experience.
The aim of the workshop is to demonstrate the progressive stages of training used in a witches’ coven. We will explore how this is given expression through the language of ritual, myth, and metaphor. The course is designed to further develop your ritual practices and build upon your psychic experiences, while learning about the psychic anatomy of a witches’ coven.
INITIATORY COVEN WORK IN SYDNEY
Nuit’s Veil (pronounced “Nu’ee”) is a training coven that embraces a contemporary interpretation of traditional witchcraft. We use a fusion of magickal practices including Wicca, Thelema, shamanism, and alchemy in the exploration of psychic experiences.
Nuit’s Veil was established in 1999. We have hosted a number of witch camp retreats, providing initiation, and training for those serious about witchcraft and Wiccan ritual traditions.
We are located in the inner west of Sydney, NSW Australia.
INITIATORY COVEN WORK IN WOLLONGONG
Babalon's Rising Coven began in 2007, in The Blue Mountains, NSW Australia. We are a Thelemic based coven, while also drawing on Shamanic and Chaos Magic teachings. Combined together, these practices are used to teach and explore the psychic reality in our magickal work.
In 2009, we took part in the TV series “Around the world in 80 Faiths” for the BBC, along with our sister coven Nuit’s Veil. We have hosted witch camp retreats and ritual training for the public.
We offer workshops for those seeking an introduction and initiation into magick. Currently, we are established in Wollongong, a seaside city located in the Illawarra region of New South Wales, just south of Sydney.
“Anticipation, mystical, sensual, powerful, energetic and magical all rolled into awsome fire swirling dance and emotion. How can words begin to tell the story of The Lunarchild ritual experience!”
“My first ever ritual—what an experience! I loved how welcoming everyone was and have made many friendships from this. I was a bit nervous to begin with but the ritual was so beautiful and powerful and the participants set such a wonderful temple space it wasn't long before I could feel the opening up of the magickal pathways and the building of the intense, but soothing powers.”
“Having for a good portion of my life growing up been exposed exclusively to paternal energies, I felt entering the presence of the divine mother as a comforting & most welcome counterbalance. The abundance of loving & respectful energies within the temple is something to be experienced, & the fire serpent something to behold.”
