Details

Many of you asked for a deeper, extended covering of Wicca, so here it is - a course in 3 parts. It is still suitable for beginners, but each subject is covered in much greater depths, and includes meditations, pathworking, and magical / ritual work - to embed what you are learning!

This takes place over 3 consecutive Sundays in September. You don't have to do all of them.. (but if you did, it will form a cohesive deeper and practical experience of Wicca). You may attend one or more.

• Part 1: Sacred Space & Energy (Sunday 4th Sept)

• Part2: Horned Gods & Moon Goddesses (sunday 11th Sept). (http://www.meetup.com/London-Woodland-Witches-Outdoor-Pagans/events/232923954/)

• Part 3: Practical Magic, Covens & Initiations in Wicca (Sunday 18th Sept) (http://www.meetup.com/London-Woodland-Witches-Outdoor-Pagans/events/232924451/)

Fee: £13 per session. You can book/ rsvp now for each course, and turn up and pay by cash on the day.

Course Details

Part 1: Sacred Space & Energy - (Sunday 4th September 2016)

You'll experientially learn about the following :

Magical energy preparations/ work:

• Chakra system of personal energy centres will be explained, with a practical meditation to experience this;

• An energy attuning pathworking will be led by tutor (using 4 element imagery, as well as growing horns & branches, and connecting to the Earth centres using imagery of growing roots.

• Consecrations - you'll first see a demonstration of purifying and blessing, using Salt & Water, incense and Candle / lantern, the tools to use, and the usual wiccan words; Then each student will get a chance to practise the consecrations;

• Circle casting: Using your own wand, athame or the tutor's wand, you will earn the visualisation, energy work and practise casting a magic circle.

• Elements & Quarters: The reasons and methods of calling/ invoking the undertaken elementals at the quarters inside a magic circle will be explained and demonstrated with words and symbols(invoking pentagrams, and element triangles) to be drawn; You will then practise this;

• Transpersonal qualities: There will be further explanations of the qualities invoked with elements, colour and symbolic correspondences. An exercise will also be undertaken by us - for internal elemental exploration and transpersonal balance.

• Witches Rune: Often used in Circles for energy raising (creative poetry written by Doreen Valiente - mother of modern Witchcraft). We will allocate some time to exploring the Witche's Rune, the symbolism inherent in it, and have several practice chants of it.
