6 Rituals For Exploring the Elements of Magic  
coming soon, call 515-280-3375 for more information

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 Magick, and Goddess spirituality by working with the Elements of Magick: Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Spirit. Each class is structured as a participatory ritual and includes practical ritual and magical tools. You will learn the ritual technologies we use to create sacred space, honor divinity, and wield magical tools, such as the sword, the wand, the cone of power, the chalice, the pentacle, the cauldron, and our own bodies and breath. Techniques we will use and explore include dancing, drumming, chanting, trance, visualization, sensing and projecting energy, working boundaries and will, spell craft, and creating and structuring ritual . Elements of Magick allow us to explore these skills in a supportive group setting. This class is a great way to connect with other people exploring traditional magic. We hope to provide a fair and nurturing environment for all participants.

Experience the Wisdom of the Wiccan path:
The Challenge of Air is to Know: To become the Visionary;
The Challenge of Fire is to Will: To become the Warrior,
The Challenge of Water is to Dare: To become the Healer

The Challenge of Earth is to Remain Silent:To become the Teacher
