Teachers are a blessing to those lucky enough to find a good one. However many have experienced learning without one. This site contains a vast array of information on many aspects of the path. There are those willing to teach, mentor, and guide you if you are willing to put in the work.
Many of the covens on this site are willing to help beginners to learn. Chat is full of people who will answer questions that are asked.
The internet is full of resources for the new practitioner, one must look and use a bit of common sense to find the true answers one seeks.
That said I caution you all to very careful of who you pick to teach you. Some teachers have disappeared leaving students lost in their studies. Be weary of anyone who asks for payment to teach you or anyone who promises to teach you the 'secret knowledge' that only they possess.
Magic is a wonderful thing. However it is important to mention there are some things magic just can not do. You can not become a mythical creature with magic, you can not throw fire balls or lightening bolts, and you can not time travel with magic.
