Tuesday April 12: Christopher Penczak: Plant Spirit Familiars 7pm
Many witches, magicians and shamans work with the concept of the animal familiar, the totem or fetch beast, but many are also allied with spirits from the plant world. The spirits of herbs, flowers and trees can act as divine guides, protectors and tutors in magick, healing and transforming the witch. Each one has its own spiritual medicine, that is in harmony with magickal work and purpose in the world. Survey many of the traditional plant allies of the witch, including the spirits of the banes and the healers. Learn how to find your own plant familiar from the green world, and develop a strong connection.
Based upon Christopher’s book, The Plant Spirit Familiar.
$30 paid registration until April 4, $35 thereafter and day of class

Sunday April 17: Wheel of The Year: Beltane 1pm
Beltane has long been celebrated with feasts and rituals. The name means fire of Bel; Belinos being one name for the Sun God.
It is also a Fire festival and one that celebrates fertility and abundance. From April 30-May 1, in The Northern Hemisphere, Beltane is celebrated with feasts festivals and rituals. This class will begin with the history and meaning of Beltane.
As Beltane is also a time of heightened sexual energy, Lady Tara will discuss ways to use this energy to achieve your goals and enhance your relationship via Sex and Fire Magick.
Sex Magick means using your sexuality and the energy created from your sexual drive in order to do “Magick”.
There is nothing new about this, it’s been going on for thousands of years.
In fact some say that it’s the secret of all secrets.
Besides Spiritual Enlightenment, Sex Magick can be used to achieve physical results in your material world. This is because the creative force itself creates very powerful energy. The effects of this type of practice will be much more powerful if you concentrate first on other more basic forms of personal development, learning to be present, clearing thoughts, emotions and dissolving unwanted belief systems. As such, Lady Tara will lead you through a brief mediation before moving onto the actual techniques for using this Powerful Magick .
Fire represents passion, enthusiasm, desire and courage, force, lust, fertility and virility, initiative and rejuvenation. It represents both light and heat. The light of intelligence and the courage to follow it. A low fire person is usually cold, slow to act, without enthusiasm for life or him/herself. A high fire person is bold, dramatic and passionate in all areas within him/herself, however this person must be careful as fire can destroy everything in it's path.
Fire Magick can bring on the new, bring on courage and passion and destroy the old. It's feelings are hot and dry, it's season is Summer and direction is South/Energy.
It's symbol is the Athame/Sword, Candle and the Burner; it's colors are Reds, Oranges and Golds.
This approximately 2 hour class is for mature adults, aged 25 and older, all genders and sexual orientations.
Prerequisite: A working knowledge of Magick and/or Energy Work and The Wheel of The Year.
Cost is $40 per person and includes all materials.
Space is limited to 10 students.

Saturday April 30: Tabletipping with Lady Tara: 8pm
Beltane, like Samhain, is a time of "no time" when the veils between the two worlds are at their thinnest. No time is when the two worlds intermingle and unite and the Magick abounds. As we celebrate Beltane here in the Northern Hemisphere, (April 30-May 2) Our counterparts celebrate Samhain in The Southern Hemisphere.
During this time, we have the most unique access to connect with our Higher Selves, deceased Loved Ones, Spirit Guides, Fairies, and Angels.
We simply, set the intention to do so~ and then go be with it.
For this purpose, on this night we will communicate via Table Tipping also known as Physical Mediumship, a form of communicating with Spirits made popular during the Spiritualist Movement in the mid- to late 19th century.
This group session of 7-8 participants, will be guided by Lady Tara Morgan, who is trained, recognized and certified as an experienced and qualified Table Tipper.
Seats at the table are $25 each and are open to participants 21 and older.
Participants are only required to bring and open heart and open mind without expectations.
We accept all Major Credit Cards, Debit Cards and cash.
Sorry, no personal checks.
