What we're about

This group is for those who are currently practicing the Craft of the Wise and for those who would like to learn. We are a non-denominational group (for lack of a better term). You may practice any postive path religion as a Solitary, but have the desire to belong to a group (coven). In this group we will practice various forms of Craft, so please join with the intent to teach and learn. Again, you must be on a postive path, have concern for our planet and all who inhabit it.

This is not a secret group, and we will soon begin community outreach programs.

Training in Magic / Esotericism

HIDE-A-WAY LAKES

This is an extensive training in Magic(k)/Esotericism that gives the student a solid magical foundation and deep understanding of theoretical and practical magic that can then be carried onto any magical path. The course also includes teachings in classical, ancient, and medieval history, cultures and religions, geography, literature, art, mythology, classical languages, and civil responsibility. You will need a Rider-Waite deck. I prefer the Smith Waite centennial edition, because the colors are closer to the original, but if you have the standard edition, that is fine. If you do not have a either, let me know and I can order one for you. I'll let you know the cost. The fee for these weekly classes is $25. I did some research and this fee is very reasonable and below what most are charging. REMINDER: ***This will be a weekly meeting. You must let me know each week if you will attend, if I do not hear from anyone, I will not be there. Due to so many no-shows I require that you send a text at[masked] by the Friday before to confirm. If you do not have my cell number, let me know.*** IMPORTANT!!! This event will be held at Hide Away Lakes Campground in Yorkville. It is not response by them, so do not all them for information. You must text me to confirm that you will be that and I will meet you at the front gate to lead you back, otherwise you may be charged an entrance fee. Come with an open mind and a willingness to learn new things.

Samhain Celebration - Bonfire, Potluck, Divinations, and more...

Tradition holds that Samhain is a celebration of the end of the harvest and the start of the coldest half of the year, and with this transition it’s also celebrated as the beginning of the spiritual new year for practitioners, which is also why it’s nicknamed “The Witches’ New Year.” Samhain is traditionally celebrated from 10/31-11/2, but can be celebrated near the closest New or Full Moon. Being a convenience driven society it is difficult to schedule events during the week and on Friday nights, thus we will celebrate on a Saturday eve. Some details: Potluck - bring a dish to pass. Let me know what you will bring so we do not end up with 50 bags chips and a box of cookies. Ancestors Altar - bring a photo, memento, or something representing those you wish to honor to place on the alter. You may retrieve it before you leave. If you wish to send a message you may write it out at the celebration or come with a prepared message to place in the flames. Divination Guidance - This is the Witch's New Year. I will guide you in using various divination tools to look at the year ahead. What can you expect if you follow the path you are on now? Are you on the right path? What other options do you have to get where you want to go? Bonfire Magic - You've hear the saying "ring out the old, ring in the new," well, we like to "Burn out the old to make room for the new!" Write down outmoded habits, beliefs, or negative situations that you wish to end and cast it into the Samhain flames. Learn Samhain traditions you can use at home. And more: This is not a complete list of activities. I just wanted to get this up so you can mark your calendars. Watch for updates, schedule, and messages. NOTE: I will need to meet you at the gate to bring you back to our site, so you will need to be in contact with me via text or call. [masked] Volunteers welcome. Also need some wood to burn. Call if you'd like to help out. If it rains, the rain date will be 11/2.
