MEET OUR TUTORS
The Academy is run by members of our established priesthood who have undergone many years of training and study as part of the Wytch Moon priesthood. We also have a few guest tutors from outside of our tradition in order to cover a wider subject range. You will find that some tutors tend to offer courses in their specialist field, whilst others may offer a much broader range. They each have their own style and teaching preferences which you can find out more about below.
Course tutor are always on hand to help you via the inbuilt messaging service. You can also email us here at the academy: firstname.lastname@example.org
Wort is a full time teacher, holistic healer and ceremonialist. She is also an Elder and founding member of the Wytch Moon tradition and High Priestess of the Coven of the Night Mares. Wort started her spiritual journey over 30 years ago, training with a traditional Wiccan coven before moving on to study other paths and traditions. She set up a Moot (social gathering) for Pagans in the Reading area back in the early 1990's and began leading open circles to celebrate the Wheel of the Year. This led on to running workshops, giving talks and facilitating many other learning opportunities. The COVID pandemic led to Wort moving over to teaching online courses and the formation of the Wytch Moon Academy.
Wort has a very broad knowledge base and enjoys teaching a whole range of subjects from history to healing. Wort tends to deliver her lessons in the form of written text and slide presentations. These are usually accompanied by links to supporting videos, articles and recommended book titles. She likes to set her students fun assignments and quizzes to help embed knowledge more deeply. You can find out more at her website: www.wortmoon.com
