THE NEW YEAR'S WEB OF CHANGE: CRAFTING YOUR DREAM FOR 2012
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).
