No, I think that includes everything.
Let the Spells fly!

To speak on your negative experience with students, you must have had some very unwitting people, because if I were one of them, I'd come as prepared as possible as far as the "schooly" stuff were concerned, and I'd expect to compensate for any other materials used. I would also expect to be informed of any necessary expenses in my information brochure I might raid the fridge, but you'd be welcome to come raid mine

I believe that something as personal as spiritual beliefs is not something that should be taught like a science class, but rather discovered individually. Hence why I prefer books. You can read them and take what you need and leave what you don't need, or whatever doesn't feel "right" for you. It's always been my experience that when someone tries to teach you something, it's their way or no way at all. Same for internet courses. Not to mention, anyone can create one of those online courses, so there's no telling if they actually have any REAL credibility. Just my opinion though.
I thought about it one of the sites I visit has Wicca 101.Alicara wrote:I went through the free course, and didn't think it was to bad. I wouldn't pay for that, but that's cause I'm a poor student..
I say good. Why not get the books and the "school" if it's only 30 bucks then why not? As long as they actually know what they're talking about and aren't just out to make a quick buck.Crrazy Healer Lady wrote:I agree with Stormy...
My personal and unadulterated opinion (which is easy in my grumpy mood) is that it sucks.
"Learn Hollywood Wiccanism and play "Light as a feather stiff as a board" like they do in the Craft!"
Okay that is mean and pretty harsh. Without actually taking a course I cannot really make a good opinion, but anything like this really turns me off. It reminds me of those ads on the back of comics: "Send $25 and we will send you a certificate for becoming a warlock!" My friend became a priest with an online thing that was really cheesy and he holds it high above everyones' heads. It reminds me of that. But prove me wrong. ^_^ I may just be blinded by my extreme grumpiness, which is entirely possible.
