Tarot Magick w/ Bill
When used properly, the tarot can be quite the potent magical tool, and yet most people only use it for divination. In fact, it’s a
highly portable fully functioning temple. How can we use this information in a ritual context, and what exactly are the limits? In this

no prerequisites for theclass, and handouts will be provided.

Love that Summer Sun! w/ Kathy
It’s the month of July already?  Yes it is and summer is well underway.  Everyone is enjoying those great outdoor activities.  
Swimming, baseball, bar-b-que, gardening and cool summer night time get togethers under the clear starry sky!  BUT!!!   What
goes with all these great outdoor events?  Mosquitoes!  Sunburn!  Dry rough hands!  Dry hair.  Cuts and scrapes and burns, Oh
My! So guess what this months class will be covering?  Essential Oils for Summer!  Products that can be made to help with some of
these ‘misfortunes’ should I say of the hot summer season.  And maybe even something to help with cooling down.  And as usual,
you will be making a product or two! Note the different time!

astrology tell us about the elements, and how can we apply that knowledge to our understanding of this reality? This class is

understanding of the world around us, and how to synthesize this into our spiritual path and growth..

$25 7 – 9 pm
Saturday & Sunday July 18 & 19  Full day workshops
10 am – 5 pm  $195

The aspect of Shiva which is Consciousness, the formless Divine, with Shakti which is the creative aspect of the divine will be
described.  Like Narayana, which is a unitary being with his shakti, Maha Lakshmi, Sada Shiva is never separated from his shakti
and is often depicted as half male and half female.  This formless aspect is quite different from the Rudra aspect, the matted-
haired ascetic. The two sons of the Divine Couple will also be introduced, Ganesha and Subramanya.

Invocation vs. Evocation w/ Bill
These terms are used quite often in books on magick, yet I do not generally see any clarity on what they are, and what they’re not.

each one is not, and the purpose and usefulness of each one.

Inroduction to Sanskrit Mantras: Tools for Personal and Spiritual Development  w/Nita
Sanskrit, considered one of the oldest languages on the planet, is referred to as “the language of the Gods.”  The word “mantra”
roughly translates into “to free from the mind.”  Therefore, mantra is a spiritual tool that creates a powerful and sacred sound
vibration that frees us from the mind’s distractions, allows us to enter a deep state of meditation and assists in our personal and
spiritual development, eventually leading to a state of conscious enlightenment.

Sanskrit mantra is a practical tool that aids in transforming some of life’s issues through the elimination of karma.  In this workshop
we will learn about the energetics of mantra, the basics of chanting, how to develop a mantra practice, plus several mantras that
will enhance our lives in the areas of prosperity and abundance, health and well-being, protection and guidance, energy
balancing, education and the arts and spiritual liberation.  
CD recordings of the mantras are included in the workshop.

handouts.,
