WTI Study

What is the Women’s Thealogical Institute (WTI)?

The Women’s Thealogical Institute (WTI) is a multidimensional school and seminary for women who wish to further their understanding of the Goddess, women’s spirituality, and/or women’s witchcraft. Being a part of WTI lets women learn, practice, and share their spiritual work with others on similar paths.

There are three ways you can participate in WTI. Click one of the links below for more information.


WTI Weekend Groups

Currently, weekend programs happen in Austin, Texas; Indianapolis, Indiana; Ashville, North Carolina; and Madison, Wisconsin. Women in the weekend program meet 2 weekends a year with their group to share their program work with others. WTI Weekend Groups are longer programs that require enrollment and may lead to certification and/or ministerial credentials. If you are interested in starting a new WTI Weekend Group in your area, please email us.


WTI Athena Online Program

All three cycles of the Cella, Guardian and Crone Programs are offered online and one may graduate from WTI through the Athena Program. Online participants take part in regular training with their Advisor and become part of a learning and sharing online community.

Those interested in ordination and receiving ministerial credentials can take the first part of their training online:

  • For the Cella Program, Cycles I and II may be taken on line.
  • For the Guardian Program, Cycles I and II may be taken on line.
  • For the Crone Program, Cycle I may be taken on line.


After completion of the Cycles above, those interested in ordination must move to a weekend program. WTI weekend Groups happen in several locations in North America and meet twice a year.


WTI Online Classes

WTI online classes offer a variety of training in 6 - 13 week increments several times a year. For more information, please email us.
