One figure, above all, has haunted the human imagination since humans began to imagine: the witch. Witchcraft seems always to have been with us, but the curious will ask: where did it come from and where is it going? Anthropologists often define witchcraft as "the use of malevolent powers by psychic means without the need for ritual or charm". This may have been so for the days of the Inquisition but not for the contemporary western world where witches work magic through spells. This class provides a historical overview of how modern-day magic evolved from early man, the beliefs and customs of the Celts, and other ancient, Indo-European peoples. Class starts at 6PM followed by Open Circle
The word Qabalah comes from the Hebrew “QBL” meaning “received teaching/tradition”. Qabalah is a truly ancient system that can be traced back thousands of years. The Qabalah is a vital and dynamic system of spiritual growth which is used widely within the Western Mystery Tradition today from the Golden Dawn to Wicca and contemporary neo-paganism. Qabalastic thought, symbolism and ideas are incorporated in both rituals and philosophies. Class begins at 6PM with Open Circle to follow

This week's class will be Elements and Correspondences. Everything has certain elemental qualities, which are called Correspondences. Just as we are all born under a certain sign of the zodiac, and just as our gender, race, nationality, and individual upbringing influence our characters and personal qualities, so correspondences influence the different elements and tools we might use to perform magick. Carefully choosing elements with the right correspondences can help to insure the success of your magickal endeavors. As usual, class to begin at 6PM, followed by Open Circle
