Instant Magick Spellcrafting

Pantheacon

Double Tree Hotel 2050 Gateway Place, San Jose, CA http://www.ancientways.com

San Jose, CA

Magick can be used anytime and anyplace, without the use of ritual tools. Though tools are wonderful implements, and when consecrated are truly magickal vessels, the most important tools are energy, intention, strength of will and of course - you. Instant magick is an exploration and expansion of forms of internal, mental magick, to do spellcraft through intentions, magickal words, visualizations, evocations and direct energy work in non-traditional ways. Learn to creatively use your internal connection to the elements, chakras, planets, deities and spirits to fuel your magick and make changes in your life anywhere you are.

Witchcraft and the Shadow Self
Pantheacon
Feb 17-20
Double Tree Hotel 2050 Gateway Place, San Jose, CA http://www.ancientways.com
San Jose, CA
The tradition of witchcraft and its deities are associated with the depths of the underworld and the darkness of the soul, though we act as the luminaries and torch bearers in the dark. Modern witches on the path are asked to explore their own shadow self, their own repressed thoughts, feelings and images. Instead of trying to vanquish the shadow, a task that is never successful, we are asked to integrate the shadow self into a healthy relationship and find it as a source of strength and comfort. Explore the workings of the shadow self, how to ‘distill” it into manifestation and how to heal the relationship and partner with it as a spirit ally through the lens of the shamanic traditions of witchcraft.

The final dates are not posted yet, but at the moment they are schedule for Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon.

Usually I mix lecture with experience for the talk, though the time is limited, so I try to find a good balance. THe workshops can boarder on pretty big, so there's not a lot of time for sharing at the PCon event.

Blessings,

Christopher
