April 2012 Workshops & Events

Sunday April 1st All Day

Elements of Magic Intensive Weekend (Amanda) 
 In this class we explore the practice of magic and witchcraft by working with the elements--Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Spirit. We learn the ritual technologies used in the Reclaiming tradition to create sacred space and time, and to create magic; and we explore our connections with the Divine and Mysterious Ones, in whatever form we understand them. Some techniques that are typically touched on include breath, dancing, drumming, chanting, trance, visualization, working with will, sensing and projecting energy, raising a cone, basic spellcraft, and ritual.
Saturday & Sunday, April 14 & 15, OFF PREMISES (in Verdun), $75

An Introduction to the Elements (Amanda) 
Many contemporary Pagan and esoteric traditions use the five foundational elements of earth, air, fire, water and ether/spirit. What are they, where do they come from, what do they represent, how can we tune-in to their energies for our magical or spiritual work, and why would we want to? This 2-hour introduction scratches the surface of these questions and offers some practical exercises to explore the five elements.
