Welcome to the Soul Path School of Magic


Lyn ThurmanThe idea of teaching came to us, Lyn and Paul Thurman, more years than we’d like to say. We’d talk about how we could share what we’ve learnt and practiced to other people who’d like some guidance or company on their magical path.

And then we let life sweep us away, never losing our magickal life but drifting along with the currents, exploring different avenues away from teaching. I wrote, blogged, created, mentored and stirred the magic cauldron. Paul wrote, consulted, spirit walked and astral travelled.

Now we’ve come back to that seed of inspiration from years ago to open the Soul Path School.

The push to make a long standing dream a reality came from our Soul Path Tribe – so Paul and I planned out the bare bones of the Soul Path School.

Both of us are big believers in magick and witchcraft being in the present – it’s learning from the past to make a better future.

usSo you can expect our approach to teaching to be present too – it’s about learning together, sharing stories, using modern resources (social networking, podcasts, videos – modern media) and most importantly helping you develop your own understanding, style and practices.

We’ll give you what you need to make witchcraft and magick your own. You can forge your own path and honour your soul-deep spiritual calling.

The school, and particularly The Illuminated Path course, is for both curious seekers and those already travelling along a magical path.

Our approach is eclectic; mixing a cauldron of traditional witchcraft with a dash of magick, a serving of shamanism, and a pinch or two of spiritual practices.

The Illuminated Path course is a year long ONLINE COURSE where each lesson we explore a different aspect of witchcraft or magick. It’s a very solid foundation for your spiritual path or a lovely way to expand your walk, if you tread the ancient pathways already.

What you can expect from the Soul Path School


Of course, no modern school would be complete without a student Facebook group - it's actually part of the Inner Goddess Circle Facebook group. It’s a secret group to keep your anonymity (you’ll have to friend either myself or Paul so we can add you to the group – you can unfriend us after if you’d like – but we’d love to stay friends).

Each lesson is online but there's also a downloadable PDF document of each lesson so you can keep them to print or store for reading later. Other material such as guided visualisations are available to download too if they're included in the lesson.


Courses available

  • The Illuminated Path (52 weeks)
  • Inner Goddess Awakening
