a collection of self-paced mystical studies
Hi, I’m Katie Vie.
I’m the visionary, concoctress, and lead teacher at Darkwood Mystery School.
If you’re here, it’s because you’re ready to build more intimacy with your sacred Self.
You’ll do that by noticing the rhythms of nature, listening for the wisdom of archetypes, and tending your mystical intelligence.
Looking to get started?
Fundamentals is a collection of quick online classes and tools, a great way to start your studies.
This course will set you up with a solid understanding of my key teachings about anointing, archetypes, sensory wisdom, and the Wheel of the Year.

ready for a self paced deep dive?
Study each archetype!
Start by taking our quiz to find out which archetype you align with.
Then, enroll in one of the self-paced classes to find, celebrate, and harness the magic and medicine of that archetype within yourself.
You may enroll in as many classes in the Darkwood Library as you like. Study all seven archetypes!

What Darkwood students want to know:
Note: The Mystical Year program has its own set of specific FAQ’s. Click HERE to check it out.
What if I don’t know anything about archetypes or ritual?
Perfect! The Darkwood Library is the right place to begin your experience. You’ll get lots of information and support via workbooks and recordings about archetypes and ritual.
Is this course only for women?
The Darkwood Library’s online courses are designed for women and femmes, though men and male identified people would certainly gain insight from participating. The course language is entirely in she/her/hers pronouns.
Note: The Mystical Year program is offered to female identifying people only.
How do I get my course materials?
Check out our handy download guide to see how the course is delivered upon checkout: How to Download your Course Materials.
Can I share the course materials with my friends and clients?
We’re really glad you asked! In short, no. You’re investing money and time in this experience. In honor of your investment and Katie’s creative work, we ask that you NOT share any course materials with folks who haven’t made the same investment. Each person who accesses this course materials should enroll properly.
Is this a teacher training?
Nope. This experience is designed exclusively to enhance your life and deepen your self-knowing. The material presented is meant for your own growth.
What cultural practices will be covered? Which cultures?
This course is inspired by ancient European earth-honoring cultures, which is my lineage. Instead of covering specific practices we’ll focus on bringing updated versions forward for you, the modern-day mystic.
What sort of supplies will I need?
For the Fundamentals and DIY Materia Mystica courses, you’ll need an email address, access to a computer or device to download course materials. You’ll also need access to a printer to print out your workbook PDFs. You may also like to get three-ring binder and paper if you plan to print the Materia Mystica and other course materials. You’ll want headphones, ear buds, or a speaker to hear the audio recordings. There will be options to acquire certain “tools” like a chalice or hand mirror in each segment of the Materia Mystica. All altar and ritual supplies are up to you.
What’s the refund policy?
While we totally understand the desire for a “safety net” before enrolling, because of the subjective nature of this class (in that there’s no way to tell if it’s “working” because the course material is so deeply personal) there are no refunds.
