Wordsmith Ritualist Author Teacher Weaver of Magick
My intent and approach in crafting a workshop is to provide a connection between multiple “pieces of the puzzle” that will serve to infuse magickal and personal transformative workings. My main goal is to open the participant to the possibilities and present the material in a way that will stoke and catalyze an interest and desire to seek out more information; while taking into consideration the “bigger picture”. I have found that in most cases, the infusion of multiple outcomes and perspectives actually helps to assist the process of narrowing down the specific area of a participant’s interest through the natural tendency towards sorting those things that we engage and interact with. With that thought I mind, I feel it is my responsibility as a teacher who chooses to teach in this manner to be sure that the extraneous material is relevant and productive in initializing the desire to learn more. The structure I implement works to establish a bridge between the subject matter, incorporating the energetic nature of the subject area and wherever possible the core concepts of Astrology and Qabalah. This construct is then overlaid with numerology, sacred geometry, sound and color in a way that can be used for practical application. The ultimate goal for this approach is to stimulate the creative nature as it is expressed in all parts of the SELF and use it as a foundation from which growth is the imminent outcome.
Please note that this is a small selection of workshop studies available. Please inquire for a specific topic....
Specific Areas of Focus Are:
Energetic Protocol (Deity and Ritual)
Study and Practical Use of the Qabalah
Magickal Writings in the form of Pathworkings, Poetry and as vehicles of Breath
Tarot as a tool for self-study and practical application
The Tantra of Sound
Chants inspire us, toning enlivens us and the music of the spheres moves through us as vessels for its energy. We are profoundly touched daily by the vibration of sound and for the most part its effect on us remains unnoticed. This class will explore the nature of sound; it’s use and potency for ritual and its transformative potential in daily practice. We will take a closer look at the connection between the written word and its dynamics when pulsed through the vehicle of sound. We will open to a new perspective surrounding some of the tried and true ritual chants that are used and the purposeful thread of sound as used through all religious and spiritual practice from the first sounds of creative outpour to the cornerstones of mantra and tone to awaken the energetic centers. This class will be highly experiential with focus on INTENT, NOT vocal expertise.
The Witch’s Palette
This workshop will explore the use of color in magickal and personal transformative workings. Color permeates esoteric symbology and its use as an effective tool for shifting consciousness is documented in throughout varied healing and initiatory modalities. Topics will include: The energetic signature of color; Attuning to your personal color; Use of color for ritual and Magick and the varied correspondences related to color.
In the Labyrinth of the Dark Goddess ~ Hecate
The Dark Goddess Hecate stands at the crossroads and offers challenge to all who will overcome their fears and embrace the work of the shadow of transformation. If we overlay the energy of the Labyrinth
on this intersection of the four roads, we see the deeper levels of insight and complexity that await those who accept the wisdom of Hecate. This workshop will open to Hecate in the form of the labyrinth of time that spirals first in and down towards the core of Self and then returns along the same Path forever transformed. Her tripartite nature as Maiden, Mother and Crone will be discussed and a pathworking will conclude the workshop.
The Breath of Light
On the wings of breath desire is made manifest. Air feeds us, fills us to expand and in the exhale of release leaves the space of void within to be filled. This workshop will focus on the use of breath in energetic practice. Aligning your breathing with the focus and intent of stoking the fires of the creative urge and moving it up and through the chakra vortices allows for more specific outpour to enhance magickal workings. Topics will include the discussion of the aspects of Light as expressed through color and the ultimate blending to a state of pure brilliance as we move the breath upwards towards the Godhead. This workshop is highly experiential in practice of this energetic protocol.
