The Red Berry and the Thorn

A Folklore-based botanical protection class

Wednesday November 16, 7:00 – 9:00pm. Online via Zoom

 

In “Celtic” lore, we are not sliding into the dark time of year. It’s a time to incubate dreams, rest and enjoy the coziness of the hearth. It’s also a time of heightened spirit activity.  Our ancestors knew this and we can find lots of great advice in European folklore and traditions. I’m offering a class on spirit protections based in folklore on Wednesday November 16, 7:00 – 9:00pm. This is an online class via Zoom. We’ll talk about some of these protections, many of which I use, and why things are this way at this time. Class will be recorded and posted on Vimeo. Class is $55

Shamanic Skills Apprenticeship Group

January 2023

The essence of shamanism is working with helping spirits from an animistic perspective, where humans are not necessarily the focus of the work.

This group will cover basic shamanic skills from a deeply animistic perspective. 

 

This program is for people who wish to learn or improve their shamanic skills,  deepening the relationship with their own spirit help. Participants will learn skills that help manage the psychic openness that comes with working with spirits, learn how to work more deeply with their own spirits as well as spirits that are available to all of us such as land spirits, spirits of the directions, etc.

Participants will be creating power objects with their spirit guides. These will be worked with in class.

Class group meetings will be twice a month, for 2 – 3 hours, either Sunday mornings from 10 am - 12:30/1:00 pm or  Wednesdays from 7:00 - 9:30/10:00 pm.

Tuition is $200/month and includes email access to me and additional chats on Zoom. For local people, I may be able to offer local walks and drumming circles.

This program is by application only. If you are interested please contact me  for an application.
