Mysteries of the Divine Apprenticeship Program
Register for MDAP Login to MDAP Enter the School
A spiritual path is a very personal journey and one that may take many twists. Here at the Witches Collective we have decided to give the new seekers the basics to help give them a foundation in magick. With a good foundation an individual can build upon their path with experience.
If students pass all of the tests and feel as if they need more guidance or longer education there will be the opportunity of aligning with an online tradition. While it is not mandatory to do so, it can provide a good baseline and mentorship for the students who may want closer connection or more education.
MDAP teachers do all of this work voluntarily and receive no compensation!
It is the belief of the teachers that to withhold our knowledge is doing a disservice to the community and this withholding would only perpetuate the stereotypes and misconceptions about pagan religion.
We believe that if we are not a part of the solution then we are a part of the problem!
We offer a completely free training in Witchcraft, Paganism, and Religio-Magic that helps establish a foundation for personal discovery and exploration.
We are not a Coven. We do not teach a specific tradition.
Instead, we teach from an unbiased and generalized view of commonly held beliefs and practices as it pertains to the pagan practices of Pre-Christian Western Europe. Though we are not teaching Wicca specifically, we do teach from a "harm none" stand point. We provide all of this free of charge without any memberships or subscriptions to buy or any hidden clauses. This is not a "teaser" course.
There are 3 requirements that we ask of a student and that is what we call the 3 laws and they are:
Respect, Commitment, & Honesty
In order to access the lessons and test you will need to Register for MDAP. There will be no email confirmation. After registering you will be granted access to the Ethics lesson. Login to the school using the link above. Aftering logging in return to the MDAP home page. There should be two links after all of the text. To gain access to other lessons you must pass the Ethics Test. Once passed, you can read through the other classes in any order you like. Each has its own test to pass.
Although MDAP is now completely on the Witches Collective site, there is still a branch on our Forum. Within the Magic, Witchcraft, and Paganism category is our MDAP forum. There you can find discussions, electives, and libraries.
To participate in discussions you must be a registered member of the forum. This is free and we do not share any of your information. It is no different than being a member of any other forum on the internet.
In the beginning all students have access to the beginner library. The password can be found in the
'Welcome to MDAP' topic. Once you complete the course you will be given access to the other two libraries.
There are electives offered in the MDAP forum. They are not password protected, so feel free to read through them at your own leisure. Their homework/assignments are for your benefit and need not be done or checked by a teacher unless you ask. You may discuss them in the MDAP class discussion forum. They do not have tests and more elective classes may be written over time.
After you read through each lesson make sure to take the test. Once all lessons have been read through and tests taken you will receive a confirmation of completion for the Mysteries of the Divine Apprenticeship Program. This will also grant you access to the other libraries found in the forum. (in progress)
If you do not pass the test, you can retake the it at any time.
Book of Shadows Tips
As students go through MDAP it is suggested they keep a blank journal on hand. This is the beginning of the Book of Shadows. A Book of Shadows is a collection of important information for the practitioner. It can include experiences, correspondences, or any pertinent information. Through the classes there will be BOS Tips which will suggest part of the lessons to be included in student's personal Book of Shadows. It is optional but can come in handy in the future..
Any questions or concerns you have in regards to the training program or the manner in which things work can be addressed on the forum by contacting:
Otherwise, you may email the site at firstname.lastname@example.org
Good Luck to you in all your endeavors and we hope to see you soon at school!
(Keep in mind this is still in process. It is a highly functional Beta and will only get better with time)
