Poison Garden of The Mighty Dead: October 4
The Mighty Dead are the enlightened ancestors of Witchcraft, those who have walked the path before us and lead the way. They are teachers, healers, guides and masters dancing at the eternal sabbat found in dream, myth and vision. There they tend the garden of plant spirit familiars, the poisonous plants that teach us the mysteries of life and rebirth. They are the classic plants of the Witch’s Flying Ointment – Belladonna, Datura, Henbane, Hellebore, Hemlock, Monkshood and Mandrake. These plant spirits initiate us in the ways of Witchcraft, and to fly forth in vision to and from the sabbat grove. Listen to teachings on the Mighty Dead and these plant allies, and experience a guided vision ritual to the sabbat grove to meet these spirits for yourself. Drawn from the books The Plant Spirit Familiar (2012) and The Mighty Dead (2013). Please bring a small cup or chalice.
Four Treasures of The Witch: November 9
Witches and magicians honor the blessings of the four directions, the four elements and the four sacred tools – the stone, the wand, the blade and the cup. In the Celtic traditions, the four tools are the four treasures, the four hallows or sacred instruments from the four fabled cities of the Tuatha De Danannan. Hailing from the cities of Falias, Gorias, Finias and Murias come the Stone of Sovereignty, the Sword of Truth, the Spear of Victory and the Cup of Compassion. Journey to the inner realms to find the four treasures and gain greater mastery over your magick.
