WANDCRAFTING


Imagine having a fabulous magical tool, more powerful than anything you could buy; because it will have been lovingly crafted by you & imbued with your energies.

In this workshop you’ll create a ‘traditional’ wand in timber, embellished with feathers, leather & copper shim (to conduct energy) & finished with a crystal point to transmit energies & a tumbled labradorite to connect with the elements & earth energies.

PLAYING with the

 

UNIVERSE


This series of workshops is about finding out how we, each, make magic work & how we make it fail.  It’s a Magic 101.  When we know the Rules of the Game, we can generate magic that is, individually, much more fun, much more interesting, much more exciting and much more satisfying … … unless you don’t want to …

When you dream,
               all the scenery, characters,
events, perils, and outcomes are built
from your own consciousness,
      the darks and oppressions
           as well as the delights.

Same with the world awake,
                though it takes longer to build it.

                     -Richard Bach, Messiah’s Handbook – Reminders for the Advanced Soul.

The universe is a mixed-media, expanded-cinema, now-you-see-it-now-you-don’t, duck-everybody-here-it-comes-again, super-dia-psychedelic, science fiction fantasy (?) in which a splendid time is had by all …
- Doug, my Mentor, who taught me the Rules of the Game & how to snap my fingers & make a cup of coffee appear ...

I’ve had several people contact us looking for others interested in specific areas such as Ceremonial Magic, Kabala, Shamanism, etc.  If you are looking for someone that might share the same interest, email me or phone and I’ll try to put you in contact with each other.  I suggest that you use email, mobile phone or PO boxes as points of contact rather than home phone or home addresses to maintain privacy and anonymity until you feel comfortable & ready for closer contact.
