Calling all spiritual practitioners: How often do you find that you’ve been spending so much time tending to the spirits, and your job, AND your social life that you realize you’ve been neglecting yourself?
Has that realization ever lead to the big second epiphany: I’m not sure how to tend to myself as a spiritual being?
If this describes you, you might want to keep reading…
What is Philautia?
Philautia–named for the Ancient Greek idea of the love for one’s self–is a three month long course designed to give you ideas on how to jump start (or reinvigorate) your self care practice. The methods outlined in this course are based on practices common in spirit work and are meant to remind you that you, too, are a spirit that deserves a little love and attention!
Who is Philautia for?
Philautia was designed specifically for anyone who has worked with spirits before. This includes those who may identify as:
- Spirit workers
- Witches (of all types)
- New Agers
- Satanists (of any type)
What if I’m not a spirit worker, but still have trouble starting my self care practice?
Even if you don’t identify as any of the above or have never worked with spirits, you can still sign up. I can’t exactly stop you. Though I would recommend looking up common spirit work practices so you best understand the methods outlined in Philautia.
How does this work?
All lessons and assignments will be delivered to your email in a .zip file on the first Monday of the month, for three months. Once you purchase the course, your email will be added to the Philautia email list. You will receive a thank you email (detailed below) after your purchase between July 17, 2017 and July 30, 2017. Your first lesson will be emailed to you on July 31, 2017.
You receive your lesson and assignments on Monday. My office hours are on Fridays from 5-7 PM EST and on Sunday from 4-6 PM EST. I will be hanging out in the private Facebook group during my office hours to answer any questions you may have and to start discussions where we can all talk about what we’ve learned and discovered.
If you have any time-sensitive questions or can’t participate in office hours discussions, you can always email me and I will answer back as soon as possible.
Once you purchase the course, you will receive a thank you email. This email will include:
- A reminder of the curriculum (detailed below)
- A reminder of the schedule
- A link to the private Facebook group
- A reminder of my office hours

How Can I Get the Most Out of the Philautia Experience?
There are three main things you can do to really squeeze all the nutritious juice out of this course:
- Take the information on this page into consideration, so you’re 100% clear on what to expect.
- Commit to the process of learning to love and care for yourself.
- And be open to the process.
And that’s it!
What If I Can’t Complete Assignments on Time?
Don’t worry about it! You’re not getting graded and you’re not getting credits that will go towards anything when you complete this course. Philautia first launched under a different name on November 1, 2016. At that point, it was a three week course. But in a survey sent out to the participants once the course finished, popular consensus was that three weeks was too short a time period. A month per lesson should be long enough to complete assignments, but if life gets in the way of that, that is fine!
You download each lesson and each assignment, so you’ll always have access to them. In addition, Philautia is like a living thing–constantly changing and growing and being bettered. Once you purchase this course, you get lifetime access to any updated materials included in later iterations.
So if you don’t complete things “on time”, don’t fret–complete things on your own time. And when the course starts up again, you can revisit it!
