You should be cautious in searching for proper guidance in the ways of Crafte. Just as with any other subject that attracts knowledge seekers, so too, Crafte studies attract hustlers and scammers. Sadly there are many who would try to profit from the needs of others. We at Life Temple believe that there is absolutely no substitution for a face-to-face, classroom, learning environment. It is difficult, if not impossible to learn a religion without proper teachers and community. Most important, the true lessons to be found in any religion are passed orally; they cannot simply be read off of a website. Lastly, no respectable, traditional Wiccan Coven or group will acknowledge the degrees earned via online or correspondence means. True Crafte does not exist on the internet.
We implore you; please, unless you are taking classes from a reputable, traditional group, do not refer to any training you may be receiving or that you have taken in the past as Year and A Day training. The true meaning of year and a day is usually misunderstood and it's a much misused term. The process of spiritual growth and learning cannot be pre-defined in this manner. No one can say for certain that after a certain length of time you will be ready to obtain your First Degree status into the Wiccan priesthood. These honors are earned and afforded to people when they are ready. You might be ready after only a year of training but it could take 2 or more years for you to earn your first Degree. Not only is it wise for you to be patient with this life-long learning process but it's also wise to be wary of anyone who promises to accelerate your education in any way.
