Online & In-Person Class – Brujeria: The Sacred Arts

Due to high demand, I am offering a new Brujeria class series that starts October 7th, both in-person and online versions. Please read the following information carefully.~Katrina

These are intensive, interactive classes that span a year of instruction for a total of twelve classes. Those who take the classes are considered Katrina’s personal students and are expected to commit to a course of study that requires dedication and focus. Students receive the same instruction as Katrina’s own apprentices.

Class material releases on the first SUNDAY of each month. This includes video instruction, a study pack to complete before the next month’s class begins, and access to a private Facebook study group. Likewise, the in-person version of the class occurs from 10-noon the first Sunday of each month at LightWeavers Academy in Citrus Heights, California. In-person students also use the online Facebook study group along with the online students. Students are expected to complete the class material throughout the month before the next class begins. Each class builds on the information provided in previous classes.

Please do not sign up for this class unless you are willing to take the process seriously and engage on a motivated and energetic level.

The study group is closed to anyone not taking the classes and is where the primary class interaction takes place. Here, Katrina answers questions, posts informative videos and articles, and leads discussions pertinent to that month’s class material. Students are encouraged to interact on the study group page, but are welcome to lurk and learn.

The fee for each class is $25 per month and is due before the new material for that month releases or before the first in-person class begins. Students are asked to commit to a full year of classes to provide continuity to the class environment. Once the first month of class completes, the class closes and no further students may be added.

You do not pay for your first month of class until you receive confirmation that you are accepted into the class. Not everyone is selected for this class. Katrina will evaluate your application carefully and accept only those students who will be a good addition to the class dynamic. Please do not let this intimidate you. She accepts students from all cultures, ages, and levels of experience. You may be the exact student the class needs.

You may pay for classes month-by-month or you may set up a “subscription” that automatically deducts your class fee without you having to think of it each month.

To fully participate in this class, it is essential that students overcome discomfort with Christian theology and accept working with Catholic saints and holy figures. (You do not have to engage philosophies of the Catholic Church, but some aspects of Brujería involve a working relationship with both folk and Church-recognized saints, as well as scriptures, and students should prepare to engage that energy.)

This is not Witchcraft from a Wiccan perspective, but from the organic, pre-Wiccan foundation established in Meso-America and Mexico with some HooDoo influences from systems based on African Traditional Religions with some occasional Haitian influences. This is also not a Curanderismo class, although there are several overlapping modalities and influences since the practices are, when it comes to it, very similar in nature.
