Fiona Duncan, MA, MSed
Fiona Duncan is the inspiration and creative force behind the Magickal Path. She draws upon her professional experience as a New York State Certified Teacher (K-12), College Professor, Academic Administrator, and Graphic Designer to serve in multiple roles at The Magickal Path as its Creatrix, Head Teacher, Curriculum Developer, Chief Administrator and Web Master.
Fiona is a lifelong Witch, having been first introduced to Italian Folk Magick as a young child by her immigrant grandparents. Over the years Fiona discovered her own unique magickal path, crafting a practice with profound meaning and purpose to her, engaging with covens of various lineages, graduate-level research and practical application, and studying the works of notable Witches and Magicians. For more than three magickal decades Fiona has been an Eclectic Witch, Magician, Metaphysician, Occultist, and most recently, Reiki Practitioner. She integrates her esoteric experience into a magickal and spiritual practice that she refers to as 'Modern Eclectic Witchcraft.' Fiona continually uses her academic expertise to research, learn, and practice this sacred path, and collaborates with other Witches in her quest for further knowledge and mastery.
Spiritually, Fiona is a true devotee of the Sacred Earth and the Divine Feminine, through which she finds her connection to Source. The forest is her temple and it is here where she feels most alive, channeling sacred energy between the earth and the ethereal.
In the mundane world, Fiona was a professional educator and holds two master's degrees in the field. She is a master teacher and curriculum developer, having educated students in public schools, museums and colleges in New York City and surrounding areas. She is very proud to have touched and taught the souls of many children and adults, partnering with them on their journey to creative freedom, expression and technical mastery.
Fiona is now dedicating herself to sharing esoteric knowledge and the subjects most dear to her, so she created The Magickal Path School. In her opinion, there is no other path that is as powerful and life-affirming as Witchcraft, and none that has made as profound an impact on her own spiritual, emotional and physical healing journey.
What Fiona really loves most is empowering people to find their magick so they can make real changes in their lives. She achieves this through her courses, and through one-one mentoring and tutoring. Fiona's students emerge from her tutelage with a deep understanding of content along with the confidence to boldly walk their uniquely crafted spiritual and magickal path by learning how to identify and overcome their specific energetic blocks. It is an empowering experience, enabling students to create the lives they have long desired.
It is Fiona's deepest desire to share her knowledge, experience and passion with any who seek to claim their power as 'Witch,' to connect with the Divine, and ultimately their deepest selves. She believes that this life can be a most magickal, soulful and thrilling experience when one is aligned with their true path.
Nichole Beamer is an author, teacher, energy alchemist & shadow work coach, and witch who believes that every person is a powerful magician with a unique set of magical skills. Nichole has practiced witchcraft and studied metaphysics and Eastern philosophy for 25 years. Through the union of these sacred magical arts, she has created a specific process for energy alchemy. Nichole shares this technique with her students to help transform their lives from the inside out.
Nichole’s interest in magic began when she was a child. A fondness for role play and daydreaming led her to discover a secret realm of mysticism largely ignored by the rest of the world. Nichole also often lost herself in books.
This helped her to realize a talent for creative writing, something she began to explore in detail during her teen years. It was through writing and journaling that Nichole discovered the first of her magical abilities: bardic intuition/automatic writing. She uses this gift to create entertaining coursework and a writing-oriented curriculum for students of The Magickal Path School.
In her later years, Nichole expanded her focus to incorporate the Old Ways, Zen Buddhism, Daoism, and the Yogic Sutras in her spiritual tool kit, all of which helped her establish a deep and authentic connection with the Universe, something she encourages in her students. Nichole was certified as a Reiki Master after her husband was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma - an aggressive form of blood cancer - and began her practice by supplementing his chemo and radiation therapies with at-home energy treatments. Her husband has been cancer-free for twelve years!
Nichole’s magickal methods include energy alchemy, emotive shadow work, reflective meditation and visualization, creative manifestation, energy healing, and affirmative spell work. She honors the creative methods of her students and encourages them to discover their personal connections with and expressions of the Universe by way of their individuality. Nichole believes that every person has the capacity to manifest great things - all it takes is a willingness to listen to the heart.

Jenniffer ClarOscura, BS
Jenniffer ClarOscura is a dreamwork specialist whose practice centers on balancing Yin and Yang energies. Through various dreamwork practices, she helps people to raise their conscious awareness and discover their authentic selves.
Jenniffer's interest in multi-dimensional consciousness goes back to her early childhood. Out of body experiences, astral projections, telepathy, psychic abilities, and lucid dreams were a natural occurrence in Jenniffer's life while growing up. Her father’s field work in the United Nations allowed Jenniffer to experience different cultures, philosophies and religions from a global perspective, which further bolstered her experience and knowledge of the dreamworld.
Jenniffer’s methods include dream interpretation, unconscious pattern recognition, light and shadow work, creative visualization, neurolinguistic programming, and symbolic exploration. Her focus lies in bridging the gap between dreams and waking states of awareness in order to grow and expand consciousness, while remaining in a continued state of synchronistic flow.
In 2009 Jenniffer discovered hypnotherapy. This proved to be a powerful vehicle enabling her to integrate the dreamwork methods she had been using for many years. Through hypnosis, her clients are able to safely explore their inner space while making positive shifts in their outer world. She has taught many people to accomplish the art of creating a new life through the many dreamwork techniques she employs, and to develop a method for connecting with their higher consciousness. Jenniffer is certified through the National Guild of Hypnotists, the oldest and largest professional hypnosis organization in the world. She earned her certification in 2009, studying with Marilyn Gordon, the director of A Center for Hypnotherapy.
The result of Jenniffer’s unique approach in accessing the unconscious mind has benefitted the many clients whom she has worked with to open their creativity and their imagination, helping them to navigate their dreams so they may find the path that leads to the core of who they truly are.
Jenniffer believes there is much treasure waiting to be discovered about ourselves through our dreams, and that they can be a vehicle in the quest for personal and spiritual transformation, and for better understanding ourselves. She is honored to have had the opportunity to guide many fellow dreamers through their nightly dream journeys.
