We use the original meaning of the word ‘wizardry’: ‘the art of spiritual wisdom’. A ‘wizard’ is therefore someone who practices, who is an expert in, the art of wisdom. This wisdom helps wizards deal with any situation they could be faced with, whether it be of a physical, mental, emotional or spiritual nature. A wizard may be male or female.
The word ‘wizard’ derives from the Middle English word (dating from 1100-1500) wys, meaning ‘wise’, combined with -ard, a suffix meaning ‘one who does’. The word wys derives in turn from the Proto-Indo-European base (around 5,500 years old), woid-/weid-/wid-, which means “to see,” hence “to know”. This is the original meaning of the word ‘wizard’, and the one that we use – not the more recent meaning associated with magic (more is said on this later).
The reason we are modern wizardry is due to an updating of the ancient practice of wizardry, of wisdom. Our roots reach right back into Lemurian times, but we have updated parts of wizardry to ensure all wizards work together cooperatively. For example, in modern wizardry all wizards share knowledge of core practices, and don’t sub-divide into greater and greater specialisations, which eventually may weaken the strength of the whole network of wizardry. We are building a strong tree that can withstand gales and floods.
The main goal of modern wizardry is to help restore humanity and the earth to its true nature, to its natural balance, to the path set out for it by Source. We believe that this is why we are all here, what our purpose on earth is. This is summed up in our motto:
‘In humility we better ourselves to help humanity and the earth’
There are many tools in a Wizards tool box, a Wizard can become a specialist in certain areas or a Wizard can aim to be a generalist gathering skills and arts throughout their lives, it really depends on where your journey takes you and which path you wish to explore.

What can I do to advance my Wizard skills
You should aim to sense the wryd, when you work with the wryd you will find yourself traveling in directions that will advance your Wizardry, you will find yourself being tested and lessons will be offered for you to learn.

To start your development the first steps are to accomplish the act of Treeing (See the page Treeing – How Wizards connect to the Universe) and to put into practise the Spiritual Laws of Wizardry which you can find on this page Here. At the bottom of each page you will find a link where you will be able to download a copy of the pages for future reading and study.
