Gates open 10:45 AM. Ritual starts at 11 AM, Yule Bazaar is from 11 am to 6 pm. At The VORTEX, 2307 Manor Rd., Austin

Join us during the season of the longest night of the year, as we gather to honor the light in each of us. We weave our blessings and wishes together for our community in celebration and song. Children and parents are welcome to this child friendly ritual. We will craft magical ornaments to take home and welcome the return of the light. After the ritual, stay and shop with pagan vendors and local artisans for those unique and locally produced gifts.

You may also want to bring:
- water to stay hydrated
- a chair or blanket to sit on
- a finger food dish for the community potluck after the ritual and your own washable plate and utensils
- a donation of an unwrapped toy for Blue Santa collection

There is no charge, but donations to offset the costs associated with the ritual are gratefully accepted and benefit Tejas Web and the Vortex. We ask that you please respect that all Tejas Web rituals and events are drug- and alcohol-free.

January 14 & 28, 2012, Saturdays, 1pm-9pm
A 2-Day Magic Class
Taught by WildCat and Fireball

The dark time of the year from Samhain to Brigid is the time when Witches let go of the old and make room for the new. In this two-day class, we will work with magical tools (including Tarot, trance, and dreamwork) to discern the intentions we and our spiritual allies have for our lives in 2012. Then we will craft a Web of Change, a powerful spell for the New Year which will help us to work with our allies to manifest our dreams for this coming year.

Witches of all experience levels welcome! There are no prerequisites for this class, but it will be very helpful if you are already in conversation with some spiritual allies, and are familiar with basic magical practices such as grounding, casting a circle, and raising energy.

This Wiccan magic class will be held at Rhiannon's Rest, a magical Victorian retreat near Oak Hill. Class size limited, so reserve your spot early! Registration fee on a sliding scale (pay what you can) $80-160 ($120-$240 after Jan 1). Couples deal! $120-$240 ($180-$360 after Jan 1). For questions or to register, email
