Workshop Spotlight: Witching Wellness

Posted on Updated on

Witching Wellness  with Kirk White
The witch walks the line between the worlds, weaving the forces of the plants, the stars, the elements, the spirits, magic and medicine, mind and body, to bring healing (or harm when necessary) to themselves and their communities. Placed into the magical worldview of medieval European folk medicine and magic, yet also drawing on Chinese, Ayurvedic, and Greek humoral medicine, we will begin to explore how these forces are woven together and can be used for health, happiness, growth, and balance. We will cover basic theory, learn and practice assessment/diagnostic methods, and learn how to choose or create the right treatment strategy based on those findings. Beginners will leave with a firm foundation on which to begin growing while more advanced healers will gain strategies and skills to better define, refine, and deepen their current skill set.

Workshop Spotlight: Building on RúnValdr

Posted on Updated on

I’ve been teaching RúnValdr for ten years now, and some of you who’ve taken it may want some help trying new ways of using this system. Bring objects you want to turn into magickal objects, practice opening doors to other dimensions, learn how to set wards, talk about which symbols to use for specific types of healing. If you’ve been having problems, let’s address them. This is a powerful system, if you use it, but sometimes it’s easier to learn with someone there to back you up. Prerequisites: a RúnValdr attunement and first class.

Speaker Spotlight

Posted on Updated on

Jane T. Sibley, one of the founders of CTCW, also created the New England Conference on Mithraic Studies (Mithracon), happening in New Haven this weekend. Jane and Tchipakkan met in the Society for Creative Anachronism, a medieval recreation group, where Jane’s persona is that of a Norsewoman from the pre-Viking period, Arwen ferch Rhys (Tchipakkan’s is an Anglo-Saxon, also from the 7th century). That was where Jane created Auntie Arwen’s Spices, where she sells herbs and herb mixes both culinary and healing. If you can’t wait until the conference check them out on line. In the SCA she worked with Lois Fitzpatrick in the Soothsayer’s Guild, being awarded the Order of the Laurel for historical divination. Among the techniques she shared in this medievalist group were reading runes, casting seeds, and her work in utsetta (oracular seidhr).

She was taught a lot of this by her Norwegian grandmother, and, being an historian, is hesitant to claim that these techniques go back farther than can be documented; however, these are traditional techniques, and really work. Jane passes them along outside the family because they shouldn’t be lost, and none of the next generation has shown interest. Among these is the very intense Norseworking healing ritual, which she’s done for a few years. (If you come, be sure you know how to ground your energy!)

Jane’s degree was in folklore (her PhD in runes), and her work was with an electron microscope- as with much of CTCW, she combines mind and spirit, history and science, healing, divination, myth and humor, each informing our understanding of the others.

Her books, “Norse Mythology…According to Uncle Einar”, “The Hammer of the Smith”, “The Divine Thunderbolt: Missile of the Gods”,  and “A Different Dragon” and The Way of the Wise (Traditional Norse Folk Medicine and Magic.)

Ritual Spotlight: Norseworking with Jane Sibley

Posted on Updated on

This is a high-energy circle in the Norse tradition, in which we may do healing, fertility magic, charging of major tools, experimental magic, distance work, and whatever else needs doing. Once the ritual begins, the room will be sealed, so please come on time, fed and rested, and pottied. Due to the high energies we will be working with, we will have grounding and tuneup for anyone (no matter their expertise) who has never been to a Norseworking before.
You MUST be able to ground and center to participate. There will be instruction on this available during the day Friday, but be advised, unless you’ve been to one, you may never have experienced this much energy flow before.

Which is all to the good, because Norseworkings are credited with some amazing healings and a few “impossible” babies!

If you have a loved one who you’d like us to work on during the Norseworking, please contact them before we start in order to get permission for us to heal them.
