Black Witch University instructors are highly experienced in several areas from instructional design, community health education, life coaching, herbal magic/gardening, African diasporic religions, divination, energy healing, spiritual body care, and other esoteric/occult specialties. They’ve devoted their lives to serving their deities, Ancestors, and communities and wish to continue the age old practice of passing down this knowledge through the generations.
