Science, Metaphysics, and Magick
a weekend workshop with Starweaver
April 25 and 26, $110
at Ardantane near Jemez Springs

The revelations of modern science often seen more "magical" and extraordinary than the strangest imaginings of our prescientific predecessors. Modern ideas like the fluidity of space and time in Relativity theory, or the interconnectedness of observation and reality in Quantum Mechanics, seem to cry out for interpretation in spiritual or occult terms. Not all approaches to connecting science and spirituality are equally credible, however. In this class, we sort though some of the scientific concepts and look at what they imply (and do not imply) about metaphysics and magick. Scientific concepts will be presented with considerable care, but the presentations are accessible to people with little or no scientific background. Creative activities, play, and discussion are used to explore and develop the key ideas.

When the Moon is Full
a weekend workshop with Starweaver
June 6 and 7, $110
at Ardantane near Jemez Springs

The Full Moon is a time of great potency for the practice of witchcraft and other forms of Pagan magic. Intimately connected with the Goddess and her mysteries, the Moon's energy is primary for many modern witches.

This workshop provides intensive training in making use of the Full Moon's energy in the context of magic and ritual. We will learn how the energy of the Moon shifts with the cycle of the seasons, how to perform effective Full Moon magic alone or with a group, and how the contrasting energies of Goddess and God (Moon and Sun) can lend their power to magical work. This workshop is intended for those who have already taken up witchcraft, Wicca, or a similar Pagan magical practice.

Tarot for the Spirit
a weekend workshop with Starweaver
October 17 and 18, $110
at Ardantane near Jemez Springs

This class is intended for people who are already comfortable reading tarot for themselves or others, and would like to go deeper into the symbolism of the cards.

The class explores tarot as a spiritual/psychological system, using concepts from the Renaissance, Occult, and Modern periods of tarot interpretation. The relationship of the tarot to qabalah and astrology is explored in depth. The major arcana, court cards, and number cards are each studied in detail, as subsystems of the tarot. A range of experiential exercises make connections between the symbolic content of the cards and one's personal, intuitive responses.

Learn to tap the potential of the tarot as a multi-purpose spiritual tool, and enrich your divination practice.
