Presented by Phantasmaphile
Beltane is just a few days away, so it’s the perfect time to focus on heart-centered magick. Spring is blooming, bonfires are burning, and love is all around us. This is traditionally the time of year when fertility – in all its forms – is celebrated. The concept of union (what the alchemists call conjunctio) is key to meditate upon now, as we focus on ways to balance our own internal opposites, and work towards inner completion.
In this ritual workshop, we’ll discuss ways to heal our hearts, and make them more fertile places for love and creativity. We’ll learn about herbs for both physical and spiritual heart-health – as well as a few aphrodisiacs for good measure! Each attendee will also craft a love spell, whether for someone you know, for yourself, or for the wider world.
-A candle with a candle-holder.
-Any altar objects you like. These can be decorative and/or personal objects which you’d like to have charged.
-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.
