The 3rd Road® is: a school for Wiccan religion; a living branch of Faerie (Celtic) shamanism; and a community.

San Francisco, Ca.

"There's the road to heaven, and there's the road to hell, and there? That's the road to Faerie."
-- Thomas, the Rhymer

The 3rd Road® Training teaches you how to
* be confident following your star
* develop your full potential as an individual
* enjoy passion coupled with integrity
* practice a down to earth spirituality
* discover your place within the inextricable weaving of self, society and cosmos
* celebrate safe, powerful and practical rituals
* and enjoy this garden of delight the Goddess has given us.

SF Bay Area residents and nonresidents, enjoy genuine adventure!

Francesca now provides all entry level 3rd Road® lessons, including that which used to be taught in weekly classes, in two styles of weekend long trainings:
* the core training
* workshop topics such as magical herbalism, sacred sexuality, leading large rites... These workshops, important parts of the 3rd Road® training, are for folks of any level, any tradition. Each workshop is a complete unit unto itself that can be taken without the core training (and vice versa. And all of them together: wow!)

For a Schedule of Upcoming 3rd Road Events:

A calendar of events will no longer be posted on this site. Send Francesca an email with your name, phone number, and postal address, and "De Grandis' Calendar" typed in the subject field. You will receive notices of upcoming trainings and events as well as other pertinent announcments. Francesca assures you "You will not be swamped by email. I aim to serve, not to harass."

This page describes more about The 3rd Road curriculum, though when you go to it, it may still refer to material that is now taught in weekend long events as taught in weekly classes; hopefully that will be updated when you see it.)

LYNN ANDREWS, author of Medicine Woman, praises Francesca's book, Be a Goddess!, as " inspirational bridge between ancient wisdom and our current life."

"A teacher of mine said that the genders merge wherever there is great power or great sensuality, shamanism and spiritual transformation. That being so, Be A Goddess! should be required reading for anyone interested in any of these paths!" --Hal Zina Bennett, Ph.D., author of Zuni Fetishes

FRANCESCA DE GRANDIS, the author of BE A GODDESS! A Guide to Celtic Spells and Wisdom for Self-Healing, Prosperity and Great Sex (HarperSanFrancisco, 10th printing!) has been featured in The New York Times, U.S.A. Today, and Cosmopolitan. Francesca is a wise-woman and traditional spiritual healer who completed a rare seven-year training to become a Celtic shaman in the Faerie Tradition. In 1986, she founded The 3rd Road® school and healing institute where lawyers and bike messengers alike come to learn and be enchanted by the magic and mysticism of the Old Goddess and God.
