Hekate's Keys is the foundational program of The Covina Tradition, offered as four seasonal courses. Lampadia is for seekers of deeper inquiry through an emphasis on the psychological aspects of the foundational program. It is taught as four seasonal courses as well. The Mystai is the advanced leadership training program that merges depth psychology with collaborative teaching and mentoring. It is only available to select graduates of Lampadia. Built around monthly themes exploring an aspect of Hekate, and rooted in the Keys of Hekate, with correspondences and archetypal explorations of the sacred feminine, along with psychospiritual inquiry, witchcrafting, and ritual.
New students are welcomed into Hekate's Keys in advance of each course, if there is space for newcomers. The best way to ensure your placement in the program is to join either the Read Along or become a Coven Member.
The curriculum is rooted in a sacred daily practice known as Quotidia, has it's heart in the sacred feminine, and wears the crown of personal empowerment through psychology, meditation, and creativity.
Information on Lampadia and The Mystai is shared within Covina.
Covina comes from a Latin word meaning "to come together for a shared purpose". Of course, it also means "coven." Within the gates of the institute, you'll find the keys of psychology, spirituality and the deeper world merging at the crossroads of learning, transcendence, and community. We explore archetypes, astrology, dreams, mysticism, plant medicine, weaving them with psychological constructs for a unique healing journey. Based around a sacred daily practice of connection and meditation, Covina offers you a safe and supportive community, offering you the tools you need for healing into your unique wholeness.
