“..they found messages everywhere: the pattern of birds’ wings, the way a stick fell or a leaf rode the current of a stream. They gazed into wells and skies. And because they were paying attention, the earth, the water, and skies, animals and birds yielded secrets.”
from Red-Robed Priestess by Elizabeth Cunningham

8 virtual day-long retreats per year
We’ll mark the sacred seasons with day-long virtual retreats. We’ll meet on Zoom and spend the day focusing on one archetype and the mystery of her season. Using ritual, writing prompts, meditation, and divination we will explore the medicine and magic of the archetypes and the sacred seasons.
8 rituals kits per year
For each sacred season, you will receive a beautifully curated ritual kit in the mail that will include things like sacred stones, divinations, candles, apothecary products, and all manner of wonders. Each kit will come with detailed instructions for a solo ritual. A week after your solo ritual, we’ll gather in small groups on Zoom for a Magic Mind session where you will receive a wisdom distillation to help you harvest the meaning from your ritual experience.
You’ll get a binder to hold all of your course material, and each season a printed copy of the Materia Mystica with supporting workbooks will be mailed to you along with your ritual kit. You’ll also have access to digital copies of all course materials which are downloadable.
Weekly Audio class
Each week you’ll get a quick audio recording to keep you in the rhythm of the season, along with divination questions to personalize the Work. These recordings will focus on topics from the Materia Mystica.
Once you complete The Mystical Year, you are eligible to advance your studies.

What is a Materia Mystica?
The Materia Mystica is an extensive original tome written by Katie Vie. It’s around 350 pages (and counting). It contains information about the archetypes, the sacred seasons, ritual, and writing prompts all based on Katie’s lived experience and channel. It is designed to inform and inspire, but most importantly to let you find each season’s magic and medicine within yourself. It is also designed to help track your relationships with the seasons and archetypes year after year, so it is meant to be revisited.
What’s the schedule?
There are 8 day-long virtual retreats and 8 hour-long magic minds per year.

What if I can’t attend a virtual retreat?
The retreat will be recorded and available to you. However, this program is “interdependent” and relies upon presence and participation. To earn your certificate of completion you may miss no more than 2 sessions.
When will I get my mailed materials?
Your mailed materials should arrive about 5 days before our retreat day
What about international students?
International participants are welcome to join with an added fee for shipping. Please inquire at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How much time per week should I plan to spend on this course?
At least 30 minutes. At most around 2 hours.
Is this group women only?
The Mystical Year is open to all female identifying people.
How many people will be in this program?
We accept 9 students per year for The Mystical Year.
How does this program include social change platforms like Black Lives Matter and gender identity?
While The Mystical Year does not address race or gender directly, Katie is an open hearted citizen of the world invested in evolving with the times, shedding the programming of white supremacy and taking responsibility as a someone born with generational white privilege. She is not an expert on these topics, nor on the front lines of any of these movements. But she is constantly evolving her approach and language. She is committed to holding sacred space for all female identified people and is a champion of “she”. She is invested in an anti-racist world.
What’s the refund policy?
There are no refunds.
Is there a Student Contract to ensure a safe, reliable container?
Yes! You will receive your copy upon enrollment.
Do I get one-on-one time with Katie?
This course is a collective experience only. There will be no direct one-on-one time with Katie. However, if you’d like a one-on-one consultation, tutorial, or divination, that can easily be arranged at an additional cost.
Is this a closed group?
Yes. Once the doors close no one else will be admitted into your cohort. You may settle in and get to know each other with no fear of interruption.
What supplies will I need for class?
You will need the full set of archetype anointing oils and a way to log onto Zoom calls.
Do I get the set of archetype anointing oils with my tuition?
Because so many of you already have the full set, the oils are not included in The Mystical Year. This also allows us to keep the cost down. However, you will receive a coupon for 25% off the Mystics Kit.
See you in class!
