Post # 1

Hello everyone! I am excited to announce that The Dark and Light is under new leadership and currently under construction. We will post here when we have things a little more set up and ready and tell you all what we have to offer. We are currently taking applications for members and council.

Please include the following in a mail to me:

+ Make sure you have some sort of bio/picture available

+ Tell us about yourself.

+ Tell us about your practices/experience/or what you would like to learn more about

+ Let us know how much time you would be available to be online and active

+ What can you contribute to the coven? Being active? Teaching? Helping others? Let us know what you think you could add to our community!

For now, this application will suffice, but will be updated more as we grow.

Hello everyone! We would like to update everyone on some very big changes that we have coming for DaL.

Classes, Teaching, & SoM School:

The Dark and Light: School of Magic and Metaphysics

Originally DaL has been an eclectic coven and and served as a place to bring together practitioners from all walks of life. In keeping with that theme, we would like to take it a step further.That's right! With our current resurrection of DaL, we hope to have it serve as a school for SoM members and provided them with classes. The coven and classes are open to everyone.

Our goal is to provide members with classes and coursework to help them with magic and spell casting. We will have lesson plans, video lectures/tutorials, quizzes, etc to provide our members with the skills and information to become successful practitioners.

______________________________________________________________________

Council Positions :

We have new council positions that we'll be trying to fill. I have provided the info for each of those below. If you are interested in applying for one of them, please mail Pixa and Myself to let us know. Just let us know which position you'd like to apply for,would be a good fit and any past experience they have in a position of council (if applicable.)

Council Positions & Duties :

Forum Assistants:

These members of council help with forum upkeep and tidiness. They help Pixa with keeping the forums in proper, working order and make sure no misinformation, plagiarism, etc is placed in the coven forums.

Spell/Article Editors :

These members of council help with coven spell/article upkeep and tidiness. They help Mis with keeping the spells and articles in proper order and make sure no misinformation, plagiarism, etc is placed in the coven spellbook. They also help with and suggest any edits that they see that need to be made.

Human Resources/Public Relations :

These members of council work as mediators and help deal with member issues and concerns brought before the coven leadership.

Recruitment Team :

These individuals help with inviting individuals to the coven that they feel would be a good part of the coven family.

Hey everyone! Just an update on our class courses and member houses! We are seeking individuals to help us teach courses, and serve as heads of house. If you are interested in teaching/being head of house, or joining the school to take classes, please mail Pixa and Myself and don't forget to click on the apply button on our coven page!

Prospective Courses, Thus Far:

- Again these are subject to change depending on instructors and # of students per class. Some classes can be combined and condensed, if needed. -

  • Beginner Basics
  • Herb Magic
  • Crystal Magic
  • Potions and Elixirs
  • Oils and Incense
  • Magic and Lunar Cycles
  • Mythology
  • Kitchen Witchcraft and the Magical Household
  • Aromatherapy
  • Spirits and Spirit Work for the Beginner Witch
  • Charms and Enchantments
  • Divination
  • Candle Magic
  • Poppets, Jars, and Knots Magic
  • Weather Working & Elemental Magic (working magic using elemental energies and energies of atmospheric phenomena)
  • Seasons and their magical associations


The Houses of The Dark and Light:

All members will be able to take classes, regardless of house.We even have a quiz designed to help our students find where they will be placed!

The houses are where our new students will be sorted based on personality, interests, etc. The houses act as study groups and places of community and kinship for our members.

We will have house games and rewards based on house participation and activity within the School.

If you have any questions, please let Pixa or myself know!

The Houses:

Owl :

Owl sees all. Owl is the wise and grizzled spirit of the forest that knows all of nature's mysteries. Owl is a teacher and guide that speaks of using knowledge and wit to achieve our goals, as opposed to the use of brute force.

Those of House Strix are our scholars. They are lovers of research, learning, creativity, and related pursuits.

Wolf :

Wolf teaches us to run with the pack. We all need support and the wolf is nothing without the strength of the pack behind him. Wolf sings of strength in numbers, freedom, a desire to run with the spirits of the wild, of cunning-ness, and the power of nature.

Those of House Lupus value friendship, loyalty, and honesty. They put their pack (house) before themselves, and stand against those who would do them harm; for the wolf is nothing without his/her pack.

Bear:

Bear represents strength and fortitude. Bear teaches us to show no fear and to meet challenges head on. Bear fears nothing, for he/she is king/queen of the forest.

Those of House Ursidae are courageous, strong, and pure of heart. They stand up for what is right and protect those who cannot protect themselves.

Fox :

Fox is a cunning trickster that uses intelligence and subterfuge to outwit and flee from enemies. Fox does not rely on brute force, but rather wit of mind to get what he/she wants.

Those of House Vulpes value cunning and wit. They are the ambitious tricksters and mischief makers, but always know how to get what they want or get back at those that would slight them.
