Introduction to Spellcraft...Part 1 with Courtney Weber

Introduction to Spellcraft...Part 1

2 Hour Class Saturday, March 15

2:00-4:00 p.m.

$25 advance/$30 at door or $40 for both classes

The art of Spellcraft involves making a commitment to yourself and to your immediate world that you are ready for a change. Be it in love, work, or any other variety of things--Spellcraft awakens us to opportunities through delicious synchronicity. The practice of Spellcraft can restore balance and order to what was previously chaotic and remove the obstacles that hold us back from success and happiness. Most of all, it leaves us with better focus and presence in our lives and relationships. This first of two-part series will define the four basic aspects and three necessary components of Spellcraft.  We’ll also discuss best times to do a spell…and best times to avoid a spell! Learn the basics and you’ll cast forever! No previous experience is necessary, but even seasoned Spellcasters will gain a great deal from this intense, detailed class!

If possible..bring a folding chair with you...I believe that this class will sell quickly and I would like to make sure that there is a sear for everyone!

An intensive tarot class at Brid's Closet.

Brid's Closet tarot spread

This class will take you from the beginning stages to advanced.  It is a very academic class and will require
 research to be done, homework and dedication.  This will be a 10 week course. 

You will be given an email each week so that you can print out each weeks lesson and homework.  All homework should be handed in to me so that I can grade it.

You will be required to keep a journal for your homework and the results of your readings.
We will be going over Jungian theory and psychology as well as the history of the tarot.  The Golden Dawn, some hermetic theory and symbolism will be discussed.

Cost will be $250.  This breaks down to $25 per class.  I am asking for half that amount upfront $125-that means $125 is due upon registering for this class.  This is done in order to ensure that there will be a good participation in the class.  There will be a max of 10 people for this class!  No refunds once the class has started!

Class will be approx. 1 1/2 hours long.  Please be on time!

Cash or Paypal accepted!

Items needed for this class:

A notebook, a tarot deck and a willingness to learn

Classes for Solitary witches

brid's closet-class star

I have been getting a lot of requests from individuals who want a chance to study the craft but really have no time to devote, to being in a coven.  This is due to lack of time, children, work etc.

What I will be doing for this community, is to have a correspondence course, that will be backed up with bi-weekly video conferencing!  I am really excited about doing this!  I have spoken to many in my community here, many of our elders, and other authors about this, and all seems to really like this idea and will be watching to see how this pans out!

This is what I have so far...

Each student will sign up for a year and a day.  A curriculum will be provided, as well as homework.  We will go over each lesson in a bi-weekly class.  Each class can have up to 12 students (as that is what my video conferencing program is capable of).  With each "video" class, we will go over homework and the lessons based on suggested reading, and research.  Each class will be scheduled ahead of time.

We will also have guest teachers who will give special lectures, again by appointment.  These people may be other authors, elders in our community and/or initiated members of The coven of The Star and Crescent Moon.

The tradition that I belong to, has a 3 degree system. 1st, 2nd and 3rd degree. The course will bring you up to "self-dedication."
Self dedication" means that you have dedicated yourself to the study of Wiccan and the God and Goddess.

If the individual student wants to achieve their 1st, 2nd, or 3rd degree, then I take that off-line, with that student and we can make private arrangements for that ceremony, from there.  I do not give out initiations on-line. Once this first series of classes is done, the next series will begin, and then each student will given first choice (remember-only 12 students per session) if they would like to continue their studies.

Cost will be $240 for each "year and a day" course.
This is some (and not limited to) of what will covered in this class:


Required books with homework
History
Ethics
Carl Jung (psychology)
Joseph Cambell
The wheel of the year
The elements
Structure of a Coven
Tarot
Mythology..The Goddess & Gods
Our Elders


$120 (1/2 to be paid up front to reserve your space) then the remaining $120 to be paid by the first class.  No exceptions!  No refunds for any missed classes, but all classes will be archived so each student can refer to them afterwards!  Only 12 students per session.
