Elements class in Vancouver

Elements of Magic

With the art of magic, we deepen our vision and focus our will, empowering ourselves to act in the world. In this class we begin the practice of Magic, Witchcraft, and Goddess spirituality by working with the Elements of Magic: Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Spirit. Techniques include: visualization, sensing and projecting energy, chanting, trance, creating magical space, spellcraft, and structuring rituals. We hope to provide a fair and nurturing environment for all participants.

Each class is structured as a ritual, and includes practical ritual and magical skills. Elements of Magic allows us to explore these skills in a supportive group setting. This class is a great way to connect with other people exploring Reclaiming-tradition magic and Witchcraft.

We welcome both beginning students, and advanced students who want to deepen their experience of the sacred elements.

We ask that applicants be committed to attending all classes, or let us know in advance if not.

Elements is a prerequisite to the other Reclaiming core classes: Iron Pentacle, Pearl Pentacle, and Rites of Passage

When: This class will run every Friday from March 2nd 2012 through April 13th 2012 (except April 6 long weekend).

Where: The Lions Den, 770 Commercial Drive, Vancouver BC

What time: 7:00-9:30pm

Cost: $150-250 sliding scale
