Greetings Celtic Culture fans - We have a reprise of our wonderful expereince with RJ Stewart and Anastacia Nutt coming up! Last Fall they were here to teach the first of their three workshops on Faery Shamanic practice, The Faery Cord.
Now they are returning on the weekend of APril 20-21 to teach workshop number two, "The Magic of Three Sticks." You do not have to have attended the fall workshop to attend this one - but you will have to have attended one of these two, in order to be invited to the third workshop.
Sign up soon - early price ends next week on the Equinox - March 20th. Email Marsha to register, and pay RJ through PayPal, as described below. RSVP here on the meetup so we can know who is going and make carpooling plans! (Note: these events are also posted on the ALG Druid Grove meetup site.)
Another Note: there is also a concert Friday night with RJ & Anastacia at the Raleigh Friends Meeting House, see separate meetup event post; and a possible concert in the works also for Monday the 22nd outside Chapel Hill, off Old Greensboro Rd.
Peace & Bright Blessings, IOne

“Underworld lore is about transformation and regeneration, two closely related processes which are of the Earth, and earthy. Without the Earth-form there is nothing to transform, without the Earth-mind there is no power of transformation…one of the lost ‘secrets’ of Underworld lore was and is the threefold cooperation of human, faery and animal co-walkers.”
~ R.J. Stewart, “Power Within the Land”
All folkloric magic was founded upon the absolute necessity of a real and enduring partnership between all who shared and common ground, albeit in different spheres of existence. All three partners (human, faery, living creature) occupy and are tied to the physical and metaphysical aspects of the land.
The Magic of The Three Sticks enables us to participate in the traditional folkloric magic that is part of our collective ancestral heritage as opposed to something newly invented in the modern age. When we choose to reweave the equal partnership of The Threefold Alliance through our spiritual and magical practices, we help to reunite manifest creation and the spiritual power that informs and infuses it.
To Participate in the Weekend Workshop, contact your local organizer (details below) and gather three new, small (finger-size) sticks of any natural wood you choose; they may be of the same or different woods. Please observe faery etiquette by “snapping” and not “sawing” or “cutting with metal” your sticks. Bring a pouch that will house your three sticks when they are at rest.
