Advanced Year-and-a-Day

This is a course of study I have created for myself. Most of the year-and-a-day outlines available in books or online deal mainly with people who are new to Paganism. Having been a witch for over 20 years, I am decidedly not new. However, I have recently felt called to step back from my coven and really work on myself.

Starting at Imbolc of this year (2015), I have embarked on a journey of study. It took a little work, but I have found subjects with which to work on. My goal is to educate myself better about my path to be a better teacher for my coven.

The topics I have chosen may not work for everyone. Some may seem simplistic, but I felt I needed to work on them. I am starting with meditation, which is something that beginners start with. I have had issues in calming my mind for the past few years. My meditations have not been as effective as I would like, so it seemed like a good place to start. If you wish to use my lesson plan, please do. And feel free to alter it to your own needs.

*A note on the lesson plan: I designed it to go by the lunar month. Which means each “month” is equal to 28 days (four weeks). This may clash with our Gregorian calendar at times. Each “month” will have its own topic, with more advanced lessons each week. As I work my way through my own year-and-a-day, this lesson plan could change.
