Mindful Breath and Reiki Meditation
Presented By : Lisa “Shanti” Price – 50min Class on Saturday at 1:15-2 PM
The breath, movement and supportive live music are the guides to your deep inner work. With the practice of Mindfulness we recalibrate and bring balance to both mind and body. We work outside of the cognitive realm. We honor these bodies that hold vast intelligence within and speak to that beyond. This is a practice of releasing unhealthy patterns and nurturing viable change. The work affects our physiology, feelings, thoughts, actions, the relationship to self, community and to all beings. I look forward to meeting with you and supporting your journey.

This alchemy of conscious breath and body awareness enables self-healing and restores our natural sense of connection, individually and collectively.

Three Magic Truths or Realities
Presented By : Lady Dia – 45-50 minute Class on Saturday at 2:45-3:30 PM
How do you tell if you are being cursed? How do you know if the intuition that something is “off” with someone is good information? How can you tell magical fact from fiction? A close examination of the three realities or truths of magic. The Mundane Truth, The Circle or Magical Truth, and the Amygdala Truth. That’s right, your brain has everything to do with how you perceive and create magic! In this unique class, you will be taught how to understand and work with three truths to sharpen your intuition, create powerful magic, and gain confidence in both.

Throwing the Bones Divination
Presented By : Atalanta Moonfire – 45-60 minute Class on Saturday at 5:30-6:30 PM
We will dive into all aspects of Throwing the Bones Divination; history; care of bones, starter bone kits and deluxe bone kits; how to create individual sets and personalized kits; meanings; tools needed; methods of throwing the bones; and, much more! Included are hands-on learning and practice throws and exercises. Throwing bones helps us access psychic energy and improve intuition. It is also a way for our Ancestors to communicate with us. Use bones to connect with Ancestors, Deities and Spirit Guides. Through these connections we are able to predict future events as well as give advice when needed. Keep in mind that although this form of divination is an important part of Voodoo and Hoodoo, it is not necessary to be a practitioner of either.
I am an eclectic witch, who specializes in divination, practicing tarot for over 26 years and reading bones for over 9 years. Born in Manassas, Virginia, I grew up moving frequently, which gave me the ability to be flexible and adaptable to change as well as diverse life experiences. At 51 years young, I have been pagan since the age of 14, practicing since I was 18 years old, finding my true path in my 30’s. Always looking to expand my knowledge I am a Reiki Master, Ordained Minister, Spirit Walker, Hoodoo Practitioner, and High Priestess of Sacred Moon. Currently I am studying Hekatean Witchcraft, Keeping Her Keys and will be initiated as a Priestess of Hekatean Witchcraft in late 2020. My goal in life is to expand my spiritual education and help others who share my desire of understanding this magnificent universe in which we live.

Presented By : Rayna Templebee – Pre-Recorded 50 minute Class – on Sunday at 12-12:45 PM
These are challenging times, and to stay centered and healthy, pagans have access to many lesser known magickal tools from our historical traditions. In this workshop we will tap into the powerful magick of bees and honey by creating a protection honey pot.
