You are here for a reason.


Maybe you have always yearned for something more…you sense the Divine right at the edge of your perception, you have deep dreams but don’t quite know what to make of them, you know that you have power…but you aren’t quite sure what to do with that knowledge. I see you.

You know who you are: you are into the woo, love Harry Potter, and have a ton of practices, tools, tips, and techniques at your fingertips.

You may call yourself a Witch or a Healer, a Shaman, or an Intuitive…you may still be search for the just right name. You are definitely wondering how to bring it all together…wondering why, with all of your tools, life still doesn’t feel as magical as you thought it would, as you feel like it could.

I see you and I know you, because I have walked that same road.

And I’m here to tell you…you aren’t wrong.

You are here for a reason…and I believe that a big part of that reason is to remember the Sacred Arts – the magic, traditions, folklore, medicine ways, energy techniques, divinatory skills, astrological knowledge, and liminal living that has been with us since we first dabbed our fingers in red ochre and drew lines on a rough cave wall.

These are the gifts of your lineage, your Ancestors, your Far Back People. They are the legacy of your future.

I 100% know that the way Sacred Artists live allows us to be more insightful, incisive, intelligent, resilient, and adaptable. It allows us to be better and to do better…in our families, our communities, and in the world.

We need that now more than ever.

The Sacred Arts is not a series of tips, or tricks or tools. It is an eco-system that feeds and nourishes multiple vital living organisms, including you.

THAT is why I created the Sacred Arts Academy Training. It is a unique, first of its kind, four-year program that will teach every facet of the Sacred Arts in connection – not fragmentation.

This course of study is designed to bring Freedom into your life and to allow you to identify what you are Fiercely Devoted to – because once you know that, everything else falls into place.

You are here because magic calls to you – you know, in your bones, we have big power, the power to transform…you aren’t wrong…and now is the time to get to know that power…up close and personal.

Join us.

What you will find in the Sacred Arts Academy

What is the Sacred Arts Academy Training?

The Sacred Arts Academy (or SAA as I often call it) is a four year, comprehensive program devoted to every aspect and facet of the Sacred Arts.

Divination. Astrology. Magic. Ritual and Ceremony. Spirit Work. Living a liminal life. Folklore. Healing. Plant, animal and mineral medicines. Holy Helpers and the elements. ALL of it, in one place, over the course of four years.

Once individuals have completed all four courses they will receive a certificate of completion (and they will have made some life long friends along the way).

The word “academy” hearkens back to what is supposedly the first academy – Plato’s Academy in Athens. Although most famous depictions of this site indicate that it was in a temple and populated mostly by men, the truth is that the learning occurred in a Sacred Grove in the heart of ancient Athens. A forest, covered in offerings to the Gods and Goddesses of hearth and home, root and branch, fur and fang – where curious souls came to learn, discover, and encounter one another. Pretty awesome place to learn, right?

A tree is an excellent model for education and it is no accident that our word for where learning happens correlates to tree. In the Sacred Arts Academy we are committed to providing the tools and support for the Soulful Seeker who is developing, growing, becoming seasoned and mature in their own, one of a kind, unique way.

Each year-long course is dedicated to one aspect of development, modeled, most appropriately, after a tree.

Roots: Spinning Gold

This is where discover the Sacred Arts in their natural territory of folklore, myth, and fairy tale, where we get very specific about the idea that all true magic comes from “within” as each student is introduced to their natural powers of Love, Faith, Hope, Justice, Moderation, Courage, and Wisdom.

This is where we learn to reach into our lineage and broaden out into our legacy, and where we learn the true power of our name.

Here is where we begin and learn to stop spinning our wheels in an effort to manifest this or transform that, and instead start spinning gold.

Note: Participation in Spinning Gold is a pre-requisite for participation in any other SAA courses.

In Spinning Gold we looked within and discovered what we had within ourselves – the magic, mystery, and vast potential that we all contain.

Crown: Remembering Ways

Once we have established our knowledge and understanding of inner and outer magic, mythos, and mystery, it is time to get specific and discover different kinds of magical workings that are highly effective, traditions around typically taboo subjects like spirit contact, working with the elements in a magical context, integrating religious items and imagery into magical practices, the power of words, speech, and song. How to pray effectively as a Sacred Artist and how to maintain ongoing relationships with our Holy Helpers. Remembering Ways calls on magical traditions that will have something of the whiff of the familiar for each student because these are the particular details of the Sacred Arts that have been passed down generation to generation, albeit in fragmented and broken forms. Together we will piece them back together and give them rightful place in our lives.

In this course you will learn:

  • Working with Ancestors, Saints, and Sinners
  • Fundamentals of building successful rituals and ceremonies
  • Keeping a record of ceremonial experiences, successes, and failures

You've Got Questions:

Ok, wait a minute…who ARE you?

Such a good question! I’m Briana Saussy (hi! Nice to meet you!) and you can read all about me here and check out my books here.

How much is tuition?

Tuition is $2500/year or $250/month for 12 months. Prior to open enrollment we do offer an early bird registration period with a discounted tuition rate.

Can I audit a course?

If you have already been a full participant in a course you may choose to audit it for $100.

How long is each course?

Each course is designed to be completed in a year.

Do I have to participate for four years in a row to complete the training?

Students are not required to participate every year – so an individual could take Spinning Gold, take a year or two off, and then re-join the next time Wolves and Stars comes out.

Are there any prerequisites?

Students must be enrolled or be alumni in Spinning Gold in order to take any other courses.

How are courses delivered?

The Sacred Arts Academy training is delivered virtually through downloadable pdf’s, audio files, and videos.

Let’s talk about Spirituality for a sec, is this like, a religion?

No. The Sacred Arts are a group of practices that are found in major religions as well as spiritual traditions around the world and across the board. Sometimes they are talked about in coded language, sometimes they are just not talked about but practiced, and rarely they are centered in a specific tradition.

I am teaching the core practices and ways of being in the world and you can bring those to any religion or spiritual tradition (or not) that you want to. For more on this, check out my book Making Magic.
