In this Core Class we will explore Sex-Pride-Self-Power-Passion and return – cleansed, cleared, balanced, and re-aligned – to the truth of Divine Human Animal natures.

Do you observe, mark, and celebrate the Feasts?
How many? The four fire festivals of Celtic cultures carried through into the Christian calendar?
Samhain and Hallowmas…
Imbolc and Candlemas…
Beltaine and Roodmas…
Lughnasadh and Lammas…
Do you also gather with your magical kin and family or spirits at the Equinoxes and Solstices?
Midwinter and Yule… or Christmas.
Spring and Ostara… or Lady’s Day.
Midsummer and Litha… or St. John’s Day.
Autumn and Hærfest… or Michaelmas.
Do you work with a Wheel of Eight Festivals, and perhaps even more? Or perhaps you only observe six?
These Feasts that have sometimes also been called Sabbats by Neo-Pagans are ancient. They arise out of Celtic, British, Scandanvian and Germanic cultures. They are observed far and wide and have been asborbed into the Christian calendar as important liturgical feasts in the story of Mary and Christ, or the Dead, Saints, or Angels.
Folklore and mythology abounds, as does erroneous material and much debate!
In this course that will run from Samhain/Beltaine (both hemispheres starting together) we will deepen into the folklore and myths connected to these Festivals that some of us still keep. We will meet via Zoom once a month two weeks(ish) before the traditional calendar dates to prepare for each Feast. The session are 1.5 hours long and those who can not make every scheduled session will be e-mailed recordings. There will be a ninth session to conclude. We will undergo processes, rituals, research, deity and mythology connection both during the sessions and between them.
The meetings will be in:
Mid-October 2017 (Samhain/Beltaine prep)
Early-December 2017 (Yule/Midsummer prep)
Mid-January 2018 (Imbolc/Lughnasadh prep)
Early-March 2018 (Spring/Autumn prep)
Mid-April 2018 (Beltaine/Samhain prep)
Early-June 2018 (Midsummer/Yule prep)
Mid-July 2018 (Lughnasadh/Imbolc prep)
Early-September 2018 (Autumn/Spring prep)
The cost will be AUS – $350-$600 sliding scale for the full course.
Pay where you can according to your income.
There will also be two available spaces for those Indigenous, POCs, Trans, Queer, Single Parents, and Folks with Disability who require the assitance.
