Ancient cultures from around the world have looked to the moon as a source of deep and potent power. By working with her phases and honoring her myths, one can learn how to manifest personal transformation and glean profound wisdom.
Tonight we’ll ready ourselves for the first new moon of the year with an evening of lunar ritual and contemplation. We’ll explore the spirit of the moon through story, symbol, and spell work, with special focus on Hecate, the goddess of darkness and magick. The evening will include ritual, meditation, and discussion, as well as teachings regarding how to start your own moon magick practice. You’ll learn how to work with the specific energies of each lunar phase, thereby effecting meaningful change in your life.
Please bring a candle and holder, as well as any altar objects you like. Please also bring a cushion, pillow, or fabric, as we will be sitting on the floor (chairs will be available for those who need). Note-taking is welcome. This workshop is open to men and women, novices and advanced practitioners alike.
