I am happy to announce that this fall I will be teaching classes in Oakland at The Sacred Well.
Join me in September for :
Introduction to the F(a)eri(e) Tradition
Thursday Sept 9
7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
The F(a)eri(e) tradition is a mystical path of spiritual development unlike any other.
An initiatory mystery tradition of modern witchcraft passed down by Victor and Cora Anderson and those who have been initiated in a lineage tracing back to them, hallmarks of Feri include shamanic practices, as well as specific symbolic, meditational and inner exercises. A highly personal path, it has old and strange roots that include influences or similarities such as Huna, Afro-centered spirituality, Celtic symbolism, sexual mysticism, esoteric Christianity, Middle-Eastern mysticism, ecstatic practice, and others.
In this class we will learn how Feri differs from other paths of the Craft, and explore some of the core tools of self-development as well as sorcerous exploration.
Foundations of F(a)eri(e): The Iron Pentacle
Thursdays Sept 23 to Oct 28
7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
$200 for 6-part class
The Iron Pentacle is one of the most important tools of self-transformation that the Feri tradition has to offer. In this six-part class we will delve each week into the five points of Sex, Pride, Self, Power, and Passion, to see how they play out in our lives and where we might be holding resistance or losing our power.
Using chanting, energy-work, and ritual we will invoke this powerful symbol and cleanse our relationship to these powerful points of consciousness. The final class will be a ritual of connection, release, and self-possession.
And then in November I will be offering Reiki I and II there as well:
Monday, Nov. 1
Reiki is an initiatory form of traditional Japanese energy practice used for both healing and spiritual development. A Reiki practitioner has been energetically attuned to channel a spiritually guided form of universal life-energy which facilitates the healing process and quickens spiritual evolution. In this introductory class you will learn some of the history and practices of Reiki as well as receive a Reiki Level One attunement, complete with certification (Mailed to you after the class is complete).
Monday, Nov. 29
Reiki is an initiatory form of traditional Japanese energy practice used for both healing and spiritual development. A Reiki practitioner has been energetically attuned to channel a spiritually guided form of universal life-energy which facilitates the healing process and quickens spiritual evolution.
A Reiki Level Two practitioner has had traditional symbols ritually placed into their energy-body, thus widening their channel for the Reiki life-force energy, and giving them special tools for working with the Reiki energy in deeper ways such as working specifically with mental and emotional issues as well as performing sessions via long distance. You will learn the three traditional symbols of Reiki 2, along with some practices for working with Reiki in new ways. Class will culminate in a Reiki Level Two attunement, complete with certification. (Mailed to you after class is complete.)
I hope to see some of you there!
