Courses and Retreats

The New Registration System - Please read before you register

You’ll notice that the registration system has changed.  It’s actually easier to use, but it is different, so we’ve put together some notes to walk you through it.

Browse classes and events by clicking on the Ardantane Courses and Retreats  tab, the fourth one on the grey banner across the top of the website.  You can also browse events under Ardantane Free Events, the third tab.  Here you will find information about the regular volunteer days, Sabbat celebrations and other free events of interest to Ardantane members, students and volunteers.  In general you do not need to register for free events.

When you know which courses you want to register for, go to Courses and Retreats , the fourth item in the bar grey banner across the top of the website.  Click on Registration, which will appear when you hold your cursor over Courses and Retreats.

You’ll notice that we ask you to fill in the amount you intend to pay.  Many of our students pay for classes with Membership Certificates or Volunteer Credits, AKA Beaver Bucks.  You will need to do this before you add the class to your cart.  There is a drop down menu to help you figure out the amount you will pay.  For example,

You do not plan to use Beaver Bucks or Membership Certificates, so you enter the full amount.

You plan to use Beaver Bucks or Membership Certificates totaling less than the amount of the class, enter the price of the class, less the amount of Beaver Bucks or Membership Certificates.  (for example, the total price of the class is $60 and you have $40 in Beaver Bucks, enter $20)

You have a Member Certificate or Beaver Bucks for the full amount of the class, enter zero.

Next, and this is very important, mail the necessary Beaver Bucks or Member Certificates to Ardantane at Ardantane, P. O. Box 307 Jemez Springs, NM 87025.  If you neglect to do this, you will have to pay for the remainder of the tuition on the first day of class.

Add the class or event to your cart, just as you would in making any other internet purchase.  You will then proceed to Checkout.  The amount you entered into the system will be charged to your credit or debit card.

You’ll notice that we ask you to type in a four digit code to prevent  bogus registrations.  We are sorry to have to do this, but it is necessary just in case somebody named lfkjwpreohtqrg actually wants to register from Zaire someday.  Under the old system, the registrar had to guess which registrations were valid and which were bogus, often based on the coherence of the data.  She is relieved not to have to do that any longer.

Magickal Sigils and Symbols with Amber K

Tuesdays, November 12-December 3, 7:00pm


Ever since the first paint was applied to a Paleolithic cavern wall, and the first petroglyph was scratched on to an ancient boulder, humans have sought to harness the power of magical symbols. This four-week online class will explore the history and use of magickal and sacred symbols throughout history, including examples from cultures worldwide. Included are Elemental signs, Futhark and bindrunes, unusual astrological symbols, talismanic sigils, African adinkra, alchemical signs, and much more.

Another Session of Paladin Training begins!

Location: Online

Ardantane and Kerr Cuhulain are excited to make another session of the Order of Paladins training available online for the next 18 months.

The Order of Paladins is a modern order of Knighthood founded in November 2007 by Wiccan author Kerr Cuhulain, incorporating concepts from his books Wiccan Warrior, Full Contact Magick, Magickal Self Defence, How to be Glorious, and Modern Knighthood. Knights of the Order of Paladins live the precepts and the thirteen principles of the code of chivalry of the Order (sincerity, courtesy, compassion, perseverance, industriousness, justice, loyalty, courage, self discipline, humility, largesse, truth, honor) to set an example to the world. The Order of Paladins focuses on empowerment, creative expression and effective magick. All members are expected to participate, contribute, and serve the community.

Visit for more information, and to look at some of the reference videos that will be used in the training. “The classes on the website are the “textbook”. To master the classes, you study with the Master. This is not about memorizing, it is about mastery.” Kerr noted in an e-mail to the registrar.

2019 and 2020 dates: November 24, 2019, December 29, 2019, January 26, 2020, February 23, 2020, March 29, 2020 and April 26, 2020. The remaining class dates will follow the same pattern, and will be posted in early 2020.

The Rule:

These are the 13 Precepts followed by the knights of the Order of Paladins:

  • 1. Know thyself.
  • 2. Nurture the ability to perceive the truth in all matters.
  • 3. You create your own reality.
  • 4. Develop a sense of Right Action.
  • 5. Do not be negligent, even in trifling matters.
  • 6. Your body is your temple: Care for it!
  • 7. Minimal appearance, maximum content.
  • 8. Perceive that which cannot be seen with the eye.
  • 9. Power with.
  • 10. Who dares wins.
  • 11. The Gods cannot help those who will not help themselves.

  • 13. Do not engage in useless activity.

Courses will be offered on line via WebEx on the last Sunday of each month starting November 25, 2018. There are 18 lessons taking you all the way to the highest level, Paladin.

The fee is $25 per session.
