CLASSES AND WORKSHOPS May 2016
Sunday May 15: Angelic Magick with Jonathan Sousa: 2-4pm
From distant antiquity, the choirs of angels have existed. All religions recognize intermediary spirits between the Divine and humanity. In the purest sense, an angel is a messenger relaying power and wisdom between worlds. They exist to uphold the Divine Laws. Lastly, as mediators of the forces of creation, their aid may be courted for aid in all matters (mundane and spiritual). This class draws from the Hermetic synthesis of the Italian Reinassance, the Angelic Art taught by Madeline Montalban, and the Greek Magical Papyri. Both theory and practice will be addressed.
Some highlights include (but are not limited to):
* A Brief Overview of comparative angelology
* One's Holy Guardian Angel in magical lore
* Guidelines and Preparations to Angelic Magic
* Considerations for Prayer and Meditation
* Divining your personal Moon and Sun Angels
* The Archangels of the Elements and Planets (basic correspondences)
Methods of Petitioning (Italian Stregoneria, Hoodoo, Ceremonial Magic)
A brief resource list will be shared for further study. Please bring a notebook and writing utensil to the class.
Jonathan Sousa is a votary of the Goddess Diana, whom he serves through the initiatory framework of the Italian Continental Craft. Other paths are an admitted influence upon his development, and Jonathan draws from these in his unique approach to the Elder Faith. Much of his current research is upon the revival of oracular prophecy and Neoplatonic/Hermetic theurgy. Jonathan is the author of Witch Heart: Essays in Traditional Craft Philosophy, Classical Polytheism, and Reflections in Diana's Mirror (an anthology about his matron Goddess). A native of RI, he makes his home in Southeastern MA.
Cost is $30 per person

Thursday May 26: Witches and fairies with Christopher Penczak: 7pm
Come and discover the mysterious world of the Fey. Stories of Faeries, spirits intimately connected with the land are found in cultures all over the world. They are sometimes playful, beautiful, mischievous or terrible. In the modern era, the word fairy or faery can mean nature spirits, elementals, devas, ancestor spirits or the otherworldly shining ones. Faeries act as guides and partners to mystics deeply attuned to the power of the land. Learn about their particular relationship with witches of the elder faith. In this interactive workshop, you will be introduced to techniques to attune with faeries, including meditation, ritual and offering, to build a bridge to the faeries and evoke healing and balance in both our world and the world of the fey.
