Are you craving deep discussion, expanded knowing, and practical application?
Are you curious how this “Darkwood cosmology” of seasons and archetypes overlays with other wisdom traditions?
Then this graduate level program is for you.
In The Mystical Core you’ll study the Elements, Astrology, and Ritual Craft through the lens of the 7 archetypes and the Wheel of the Year.
You will do an official “Archetype Walk” with one archetype for the year, deepening your intimacy and honing this area of your psyche.
If you are called to a path that is both mystical and scholastic, then join me for a year of deep study and practical application.
The Core is an intimate circle, open to only 5 participants.

ENROLL: enrollment opens in September 2023
- KV channel: You will be in my “field” for the year. This means I commit to tracking your mystical patterns, partnerships, and evolution while you are in The Core. Specifically, I will track your astrological chart, offer divinations, and direct my channel specifically for your growth and evolution. I will share my findings and insights with you regularly. You and the other Core scholars will have direct “transmissions” from me as the Work comes through.
- Year-Long Archetype: You will align with one primary archetype for the full year to guide you throughout the sacred seasons, exploring the alchemy that occurs when she combines with the archetype of each season and when she doubles up during her own season. This will be a devotional relationship that will tone your genius.
- Archetype Attunement Session: Begin the year with a 90 minute one-on-one divination session with me. Our goal will be to identify your archetypal ally for the year, the one you will be devoted to. Then, you & I will have a 30 minute Attunement Call 8 times throughout the year to help you understand the alchemy of the current season combined with your devotional archetype.
- Divination tools: You will commit to building a relationship and fluency with a specific, personal set of divination tools that resonate with you (oracle cards, astrology, stone medicine, dream work, etc.) for the year in order to hone your skills sets and deepen your Work. You will use these tools for your own insight on a consistent basis. You will bring these tools to every class to include them and “juice them up”.
- Shawls: You will wear a shawl (your “wisdom keeper’s mantle”) at each gathering to symbolize your commitment to your Work and Wisdom; the uniform of a mystical scholar.
- “Community wide” retreats and classes: You’re invited to attend, but not required. Each season I will offer a day-long retreat to The Mystical Year students, and you may sit in. This is the archetype + seasonal class that you did in The Mystical Year. Sitting in is a great opportunity to refresh your knowledge, be in sacred space, and access my channel. I will also offer a Mystical Rhythms calendar class to the greater community, which you’re also invited to attend. These will all be recorded and added to your library. Class dates TBD.
- Core class: Attendance required for 3 of the 4 classes per season. We will meet on Zoom 4 times throughout the season. Meeting regularly will keep your scholasticism front of mind, offer support, and contribute to the bond within the cohort. At each class we will focus on one specific topic: a seasonal attunement, an element, a planet, or an aspect of ritual craft. I will use guided meditation and ritual, subconscious writing, magic mind, and other teaching tools. I will welcome discussion. Click HERE for class dates.
