Crossing the Hedge – There are worlds beyond these and witches have long traveled the roads which lead to them. Going to these in-between places should mean nothing more than moving from one room to another, from the parlor to the kitchen and back again. You only need the roadmap and you only need the key. Crossing over to Faerie or the land of the dead need not involve elaborate rituals or foreign and hard to find ingredients. Herein, the paths will be laid bare for those who dare to tread them.
Baneful Plants and the Poison Path – “There are poisons that blind you and poisons that open your eyes .” Some plants are pretty to look at, sweet to smell, and bursting with the colors of life and laughter. Along the crooked path though, here grows another sort of greenery entirely- with venom, fang, and claw. Herein lies your ticket to the Sabbat, witches. Herein lies the lost key to your flight. Learn about the path of the poisoner, as well as some of the more utilized plants, their folklore, and how to responsibly steward them in your home garden.
Resurrecting Necromancy – One of the witchiest of all the practices associated with historic witchcraft, the art of necromancy is also the most misunderstood. Learn what it is, its connection to the phrase “black magick”, how it fits into a modern witchcraft context, and how it can add a new layer to your practice as a witch.
Introduction to Traditional Witchcraft – Are you unhappy with the state of your witchcraft? Do you find yourself bored with spice cabinets full of random gods and holidays you feel no connection to? Are you looking for something more, always seeking to take things further in your practice? Within traditional witchcraft, one will find a number of traditions, cultures, and practices which each have maintained their own place of relevance through generations beyond. Is there something here for you?
The Hidden Landscape – To a witch, the value of the land itself stretches wider and burrows deeper than the blessings bestowed upon them by any harvest or fertility rite. Learn about the hidden landscape and what magick it has in store to the willing and daring witch who seeks to grow or deepen their practice and to learn the scope of what it means to be an animist and witch.
See you there!
