Saturday, December 6: Astrology & the Chakras w/Bill
The inter-dimensional energy vortices known as chakras have come into the western mindset over the last 160 years, and
are  reclaiming their place when it comes to healing and overall energetic health. An age old body of knowledge, it can be
worked with energetically to achieve maximum results, both proactively and retroactively. Astrology can be used to connect
not only the human body with the macrocosm, but it can also tell us when good times exist to maximize chakra work. In this
class, we will look at the correlations between the two systems, and how to use astrology to increase chakra work to greater
ends. 11 am – 1 pm, $25

to any level of Reiki. So many times as healers, we spend our energy on other people taking care of their needs. It will be a
great opportunity for us to exchange Reiki energy with each other. We will start off checking in with each other, a small
meditation or reading and end with grounding. This is going to be a very relaxed and gentle time to care for ourselves. 6:30-
8:30 pm. $5 love donation.

Tuesday, December 9: What is Hermeticism? w/ Bill
Hermeticism is a long standing western world spiritual system that is also known as ‘The Royal Art.’ It has been used by
advisors to rulers for centuries, and can trace its roots back to ancient Egypt. While modern Hermeticism encompasses
more than it has in the past, there are strong roots in certain areas of metaphysics and magick that give us insight into not
only our past as a spiritual species, but also into ourselves. Hermeticism can also provide structure to work within without
being too restrictive, which can be of strong value when one is coalescing their spiritual paradigm. In this introductory class
the arts of Hermeticism will be addressed, both historical and contemporarily, and a clear understanding of what is and what
isn’t Hermeticism will also be addressed. There is no prerequisite for this class. 7-9 pm  $25

(or a loved one's) birth chart and life plan. 11 am – 1 pm $25

Saturday, December 13: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?

limitations. There are no prerequisites for the class, and handouts will be provided. 2-4 pm $25
