“The Hero’s Journey ” with CoyoteSkywoman
– Following in the Footsteps of Greatness”: Joseph Campbell spoke at length about the idea of the Hero’s Journey and its meaning in regards to myth and modern culture. along the way, he created what is referred to as the “Monomyth,” a set of steps all heroes take on the way to reach their final goal. In this discussion, we will examine some classical myths that follow this pattern, including “Gilgamesh” and “Gawain and the Green Knight,” and look at some of the more modern stories that also follow the patterns of the Hero’s Journey and the Monomyth.
Initiation into Reincarnation: A Magickal Right!with Ariel Sirocco
The acceptance of reincarnation (in some form) has been at the center of magickal belief from the beginning. In this session, we’ll touch upon some of the “customary” seasonal and lunar perspectives before diving into some of the older rites, rituals, and power associated with the spiritual attunement of life, death, and rebirth. This will be an examination of reincarnation from an occultist point of view as we uncover and discover the Magnus Opus of All Initiations! This class is for the true psychonaut and spiritual adventurer! Disclaimer and warning: This class is not recommended for those with hyper-empathic senses. PowerPoint Presentation.

Norseworking with Jane Sibley
Norseworking: 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.
If you have a loved one who you’d like us to work on during the Norseworking, please contact them before we start to get permission for us to heal them.
Reinterpreting the Tarot with Nichol Montfort
Reinterpreting the tarot, make your own card. As the creator of a one of a kind tarot deck, I propose a class that would allow students to study the symbolism of a card of their choice and look at examples from different decks (which i will provide) and then utilize craft materials (paint, magazines and collage materials, glue sticks, card stock, etc. which I will also provide) to interpret a card of their choosing and create a piece of artwork, their own tarot card to bring home with them. As presenter, I will discuss the meanings of the cards as I have personally interpreted them as well as how they are traditionally represented. I will also advise on creation methods to assist students if need be.

Vampires in History with Tchipakkan

What kinds of vampires are they? (What’s in a name?) What do they do in different locals? How have they evolved over the centuries? Are they dangerous, and if so how do you protect yourself?
