Trying to find a specific magic school novel with strong neo-pagan overtones. Can anyone help?
It had strong neo-pagan and wiccan overtones.
The only pieces I can remember of the book was that it involved heavily vision quests, there was a group of witches that also studied at the school but lived separately (I think, maybe they just studied separately). There was an elevator that only functioned for staff (sort of). A store was also in the school. It had strong neo-pagan cultural overtones as well (communal work, etc).
As I recall it was authored by two folks who actually wanted to found a real magic acadamy.
Does anyone have any idea what book I am babbling about?
Initiation at Beltane by Tamerin Laurel (http://www.ezmereld.com/)
Thanks for the help, I am marking Tahuti's answer as best even though it was wrong, simply because they made me aware of another interesting series of books.
