Are you a natural Witch? Into magic & spellcraft? Or do you want to be a One? See if the impulses you feel inside you are more than just curiosity.. that it’s instincts.. a magical release.. an awakening? And do you want to become an initiated Wiccan & a Witch ? Be in a coven of Witches? Form your own coven perhaps? Is that even possible? Are you tired of reading books, trawling websites and social media – looking for connections, knowledge? Worried about whats the `norm’ these days? What’s right? What’s wrong? What’s safe.. and what’s magically dangerous?
So many thoughts and not enough starts?!!
This 1-day introduction course on Wicca is for New comers, Beginners & seekers – all those interested or curious about Wicca & Witchcraft, and like to learn it all in a down to earth, friendly, experiential manner…!
This course held in the natural habitat of a real Witch – the woods! After all nature is where their power comes from- Light of the Stars, Flames of the Sun, Power of the Moon, Flow of rivers, strength and deep treasures of the Trees and Earth!
We go into the woods to be away from the machinations of urban society, and to attune to the rhythms and energies of nature. Try to relax, ground, centre, earth and be open for the duration of the course. Allow a bit of time-buffer towards end for questions/ answers & conversations. Afterwards, we’ll go to the Woodman’s pub (indoors) and continue with some socials and carry on conversing about wicca and related matters.
Date of next course : Saturday 19th October 2019
Fee: Early Witch Fee £20.
