Covina: Learn Modern Hekatean Witchcraft

Welcome to Covina, a spiritual educational community for those seeking the magick and mystery of the ancient goddess Hekate through personal inquiry, transcendent experiences, and natural magick.

Programs of Hekatean Witchcraft

There are two levels of study offered. Hekate's Keys is the foundational program for those seeking to develop their practice of Modern Hekatean Witchcraft, while The Mystai is the advanced program for those called to a more immersive experience. Both are taught as a series of four seasonal courses.

Each season includes a transcendent High Ritual, witchcrafting circles, moon salons, and much more.

Our annual cycle begins with the New Moon closest to Beltane, and concludes with our annual graduation ceremony. 

Students can join at specific points, and courses are capped to ensure a high quality experience, so if a subscription option doesn't show up, email [email protected] to be added to the wait list for the next available course.

About 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 as practitioners of Modern Hekatean Witchcraft. Based around a sacred daily practice of connection and meditation, Covina is a coven like no other.

Covina is a private coven, governed by a Code of Conduct that all students must agree to follow upon joining.
