June 4, 2:00 p.m. - Jewelry Magick - Moon & Cloud
Jewelry can be one of your most powerful pieces of “ritual garb” – it is also so commonplace it can be ritual garb you wear everywhere! Astrea Taylor says in “Intuitive Witchcraft”: “Whenever you adorn yourself with those ritual items, your mind will move in the sacred direction without even trying.” Jewelry is the perfect ritual item!

June 25, 2:00 p.m. - Intro to Runic Magick & Divination – Eric Friedman
A deeper look at the Runes! More than merely a means of telling fortunes, the Runes are the secret shamanic alphabet of the ancient god and wizard, Odin. They are channels of primal creative force, and the vehicles of one of the few unbroken magical traditions. This class will introduce the magical meanings of these timeless letters, and their place as conduits between the Nine Realms of the Norse World Tree. Using the Runes for spells and spirit contacts will be explained, including Bindrunes (Runic sigils) & Staðagaldr (a sort of "Runic Yoga").

July 16, 2:00 p.m. - TAROT & QABALAH - Eric Friedman
For over 240 years, various mystic schools have associated the Tarot with the Qabalah, reaching its peak in the late 19th century with the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, and carrying diverse esoteric wisdom well into the 20th Century. Eric will explain the most common and useful of these connections between Tarot & Qabalah, giving you a much deeper appreciation for the Tarot deck. Eric will also provide important tips on how these combined systems are also applicable in Witchcraft & neo-Paganism, by way of Elemental Magic & basic Astrology.
