2023 - 2024

The Red Berry and the Thorn

A folklore-based botanical protection class

for the dark time of the year

Saturday, December 2, 1:00 – 3:00pm.

Online via Zoom

 

After Samhain it is 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 to keep our homes safe throughout the year. This is an online class via Zoom. We’ll talk about some of these protections, many of which I use and recommend to clients, and why things are this way at this time. Class will be recorded and will be available for download afterward.

Shamanic Skills Apprenticeship Group

January 2024 - postponed

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 on a sliding scale from $125 - $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 click here for an application.
