Ascension, a Seven Part Series w/ Rev. Deborah Ann Bourbon, R.N.
Several years ago, Deborah led an Ascension study group that continued for over 2½ years. During that time techniques were
devised to speed the Ascension process. Material was gathered from several sources, presented, and guided meditations done to
anchor the higher vibrational energetics into the class participants. This seven part series is a distillation of that entire program. The
2-year study’s high points and most successful techniques are brought together in this 7-week presentation. This is a rare opportunity
to accelerate your ascension work. Topics include: Removing & Clearing Negative Astral & Elemental Energies & Implants; Clearing &

Ascension, an Ongoing Practice w/ Rev Deborah Ann Bourbon, R.N.
MEETING ON FIRST MONDAY OF MONTH
Due to such an interest in continuing to work with Ascension material, Deborah has created this new, on-going group. The group will
follow the same format that is used in the Ascension Series that she teaches: opening, presentation of information and discussion,
guided meditation on the material, and closing. The group is open to all. The underlying theme for this year will be a more detailed
look at the Ascended Masters, beginning with the Masters of the Seven Rays. (The Seven Rays are the expression of Divinity in all
that exists. From the mineral, vegetable, animal and human kingdoms, to the soul, the spirit or Monad to Divinity, all display the
interweaving patterns of the Seven Rays. These Ray energies emanate from Divinity. They are unique aspects of Divinity and are
responsible for the evolution of consciousness from atom to God.) All are invited to bring any information they care to share about
the Ascended Master focused upon for the month (please check current calendar for information); Deborah will also be presenting
material. Please reserve your space in advance to ensure we have adequate materials. 7 – 9 p.m., . Join us for a transformational

Aspect Patterns w/ Bill
Can you see the forest for the trees? Do you want to learn how in a brief and engaging class? If so, then come on in! This class is
designed to show different aspect patterns in the astrological chart. Covering everything from the splatter to the bowl to the Yod,
aspect patterns can be very useful when spotted in a chart. By being able to spot them quickly and clearly, you can see how they
impact your life, or the lives of your loved ones. What aspects say when they talk to one another is as important as what planets say
when they talk to one another, and by identifying them, we tap into a more clear current of wisdom. The class lasts for an hour and a

the Free discussion. Group meets on the second Monday of the month. Please contact Deborah if you would like more information or
are interested in becoming a part of this group.
Asteroids: An Overview w/ Bill
One of the least known points in astrology is the recently astrologically applied body of asteroids. Since they are all in unison on a very
similar orbit around the Sun, they resemble planets, yet their individual characteristics impact us almost weekly, if not daily! So, what
are they? How do they affect us? What role do they play in a personal chart? How do we understand them and work with them? What
do they offer us that the rest of the planets do not? This class is intended to be a brief overview of what asteroids are, how they impact
us, and how much they impact us. 1 ½ hr.
Astrological Timing of Events w/ Bill
As we move through life, we have major events that matter more to us than others. Astrology can be used to time these events to
create a larger effect. If you are interested in timing events in your life to gain bigger and better results, this class is for you! Because
of its comprehensive nature, Astrology, a Basic guide by Deborah is a pre-requisite for this class. The class length is two hours long,
Astrological Timing of Rituals w/ Bill
This two hour class will cover the basic concepts and considerations that should be observed when designing a ritual; up to and
including the timing of such a working. As we move forward on our spiritual path of our own choice, we encounter subtle opportunities
to be seized. When deciding how to proceed with a certain ritual, there are factors that need to be considered that can make things go
a little smoother. Astrology is the key that unlocks the door to a greater world of potential. Knowing when to cast is just as important as
knowing how to cast. This class will present an easy to follow method of thinking when planning rituals, no matter what their intent.
Covering everything from holy days to sabbats and esbats, this class will look at the factors that can pave the way for an easier time
accessing the most available channels for energy movement. Having attended “Astrology – A Basic Guide” by Rev. Deborah Bourbon
is a prerequisite for this class. Please reserve in advance, numerous handouts.
Astrology, A Basic Guide w/ Rev. Deborah Ann Bourbon, R.N.
The focus of this workshop is to provide the participant with basic knowledge about the factors of astrology as well as important
information to assist one in planning and timing events. We will discuss the symbols and basic meaning of planets, houses, signs,
major aspects; moon phase information, and moon void of course. Planetary days and hours will also be covered. All will be
presented in an easy to understand format with numerous handouts. A basic knowledge of astrology can greatly enhance your life’s
journey. This is an excellent point of introduction to this fascinating topic, numerous handouts. A 2½-hour class, please register in
advance, numerous handouts. This class is taught at the beginning and at the end of the calendar year.
Astrology and 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. The class will last two hours
long, and has an investment of $25 cash.
Astrology and The Elements w/ Bill
There are four elements that can be considered building blocks of this third dimensional reality: Earth, Water, Air & Fire. How does
astrology treat these? What can astrology tell us about the elements, and how can we apply that knowledge to our understanding of
this reality? This class is meant to address the many different facets of each element, and how an understanding of this can produce a
better understanding of the world around us, and how to synthesize this into our spiritual path and growth. 2 hrs,
Astrology of the Body w/ Bill
Ever wake up to your head hurting, but you know intuitively that it wasn’t a headache or sinus congestion? Are you a logical person,
and yet, after just a few minutes of standing, your feet are aching bad enough to encourage you to sit down, and you know your shoes
aren’t to blame? Well I may just have the solution for you! The signs of the zodiac, so, by default, the planets in astrology, rule different
parts of the human body. They have their own placement, much like the Chakra system does, and a deficiency or abundance of a
planet or sign in your chart can have subtle impacts that may influence your movements on a daily basis, but they are so subtle they
haven’t been noticed-until now! After taking this class, you will have a better understanding of astrological correspondences both in
the chart and in the human body, and how one influences another. This 2 hour class is not meant as replacement for medical help, but
rather information that can be used to teach you how to read the body like a barometer, and physically prepare for transits and
retrograde periods, as well as use your chart as an esoteric guide for health.
Banishing Pentagrams & Hexagrams, Effective Clearing w/ Rev. Deborah Ann Bourbon, R.N.

the Pentagrams and Hexagrams to clear the vibrations of the lower astral levels are exactly what’s needed. An explanation of the “what’

Creating and Working With Magickal Familiars w/ Bill NEW
The cat of the witch. The imp of the sorcerer. The golem of the Qabalist. All of these entities are known as familiars to those that work
with the energies of magick, and they are just as much myth as reality. No matter what path you walk, the concept of the familiar is one
that is most likely known about, and in many different ways. Stories abound as to what is and what isn’t a familiar, and because of this,

Keys to Understanding Astrological Aspects, a 4-Part Series w/ Bill
To see planets on an astrological chart is one thing. But to see how they "talk" to one another is a different matter entirely. Aspects are
the language of the stars. The way planets communicate, both overtly and covertly, is a determining factor of how they interact, and
therefore affect you. Why are some easy to work with, whereas others are more of a challenge? This series of four classes will dissect
the two categories of aspects prevalent in astrology: the hard and the soft. During the month we will look at what the two groups of
aspects mean, and how to understand them. The series will be split into major and minor aspects so that all can be treated fairly.
Learn how to spot aspects that are not so common, but much more potent, such as the Yod and the Quincunx. Each of the four
classes will last for two hours. A solid grasp of astrology is recommended.

Magickal Bestiary w/ Bill

reproduceable results. Formulas go back into antiquity, and have been called by many different names, such as spells, rites, etc., but
these formulas are different. In this class, several commonly and not so commonly formulas will be looked at, dissected, and

Motto, Magickal Name’ as pre-requisites. 2 hours,.

Mercury Retrograde, What To Do? w/ Bill
Approximately three times a year the planet Mercury moves in a retrograde fashion. All planets go through a retrograde time, but
Mercury in particular has very manifested results. During a retrograde Mercury, lines of communication are affected, usually, but not
always, in an adverse way. You may be speaking English, and although your audience is speaking English, the two forms don’t
necessarily match up, thereby complicating communications. If left unattended, these miscommunications will leave a wake of “Oops’s”
that may have dire and disastrous consequences.
So when are these retrograde cycles? Why do we get approximately three a year? And, most importantly, what can be done about it?
Communication is one of the largest facets of the human experience, and this class will cover what to do to maximize the true potential
that is there and minimalize any problems that may arise. This class is intended to offer tools and tips, wit and wisdom, and helpful
handouts that can assist us all during these opportunities. Class length is 1.5 hours.

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. 2 hours

sacred gathering place, known to Witches as the Grove or Alkalarre. Look at the practices of ancestral
