Reiki Treatment & Chakra Balancing (30min.)
The word Reiki means “ universal life force” and is said to exist in all things. During a Reiki treatment the Reiki energy is channeled through the practitioner into the recipient. It will be absorbed wherever it is most needed whether that be in the emotional or physical body. Reiki is a non-invasive treatment that combines well with all other forms of medicine whether it be alternative or conventional.
You may choose a “hands-on” or “hands-off” treatment. After the Reiki is passed the energy centers or “chakras” of your body will be balanced and cleared for a feeling of overall well being and peace.

How to find us: around back
A wide variety of "working tools" are found in Wicca. Your effectiveness in ritual can be greatly enhanced by properly procuring and handling the right tools. They focus and refine the power within you. They are visual and manual aids and symbols to help in contacting the subconscious mind and persuading it to work the magick you desire. The success of magick is in the belief, emotion and discipline you bring to the ritual, tools can play an integral part of this success!.

Who's hosting? Rick
Mythology is the study ancient stories that have been handed down from generation to generation in a certain culture. HISTORY can tell you facts about a people, but MYTHOLOGY shows you the personality, their beliefs, fears, and hopes.
It has been said “One people’s Religion becomes the next people’s Mythology”. Myths began as religious stories, and many of them prominently feature gods and goddesses. While society as a whole may overlook their spiritual significance, there is much we can still learn about ourselves through this study.
As you read myths from other cultures, it also causes you to think of your own culture. What stories are we leaving behind for generations to come? What do we value? What mark are we leaving on an ever-changing world?
Class begins at 6PM with Open Circle starting at 7:30PM

How to find us: around back, ashland street
Divination is the practice of discerning the hidden significance of events and foretelling the future. Divination is found in all societies, ancient and modern, through methods such as horoscopes, palm reading, and tarot cards. Other methods involve interpreting dreams, discovering omens in natural events, reading the behavior of animals, casting runes, and consulting oracles. Divination has long been viewed as the province of specially gifted persons, such as prophets, shamans, and magicians, however it is easily within the reach of all.

Who's hosting? Rick
The term Aura refers to the energy field emanating from the surface of a person or object. This emanation is visualized as an outline of cascading color and may be held to represent soul vibrations, chakra emergence, or a reflection of surrounding energy fields. Each color represents a different aspect of that matter. Reading auras can be useful in helping you interact with the world. Everything has an aura but we have been "trained" not to see them. This class focuses on stimulating the chakras, which are responsible for the ability to “read” auras. With practice, they will grow in strength, and viewing auras will become progressively easier to do.

the seventh dimension where many of the Ascended Masters reside.
You will be introduced to the seven most wanted  Masters for Earth at this time, given the most appropriate Master for you to work with and learn how to connect with their energy and essence. When learning about their specialty, you can begin a soulmate relationship with the celestial realms and embark on your own spiritual adventure with these Masters of Light.

The Witch's Plant Familiar
Effigy
Sunday April 3, 2:30-5 PM, $30
415 Main St Monroe, CT06468-1136 (203) 261-2592 http://www.effigywitchshoppe.com/
Many witches are familiar with the concept of the animal familiar, the totemic animal or fetch beast, but many witches are also allied with spirits from the plant world. The spirits of herbs, flowers and trees can act as divine guides, protectors and tutors in magick, healing and transforming the witch.  Each one has its own spiritual healing power, that is in harmony with the witch's work and purpose in the world. Survey many of the traditional plant allies of the witch, including the spirits of Nightshade, Monkshood, Thorn Apple, Mandrake, Oak, Apple, Hazel, Birch, Rose, Mugwort, Wormwood, and Angelica. Learn how to find your own plant familiar from the green world, and develop a strong connection.
 
The Three Rays of Witchcraft
Friday, April 8

6 PM Book Signing
Robin's Nest
157 East Main Street, Milford, MA 01757 508 244-4881 www.therobinsnestma.com
Join us for an intensive workshop on the three primal powers that are the basis of creation and magick. Witches often see these three powers as maiden, mother and crone. In Qabalistic magic, we have the three pillars of Mercy, Severity and Equilibrium. Druidic traditions look to three rays of inspiration, of Awen. Theosophists have the rays of Power, Love and Intelligence. Older form of witchcraft look to the Oak, Ash and Thorn, as well as the Straight, Bent and Crooked lines. How can modern witches, magicians and shamans work with these three powers for magick, evolution and transformation? Explore new views of the three powers as three road to enlightenment, as they manifest in three races - Angels, Faeries and the ancestral creatures; three healers - Stones, Plants and Animals; and three threads of wisdom - personal revelation, ancestral teachings and the ordeal. Use energetic meditations to invoke the three rays within you and communicate with their spirits. Deepen your magickal and spiritual practice and go further in your own evolutionary process. Based upon Christopher latest book, The Three Rays of Witchcraft.
