Mirror Scrying

Postponed to July 2023

Scrying, also known by various names such as “seeing” or “peeping”, is the practice of looking into a suitable medium in the hope of detecting significant messages or visions. The objective might be personal guidance, prophecy, revelation or inspiration. Divination is a general term used for accessing information which is beyond the reach of our mundane senses. Through the ages and across different world traditions, scrying and divination have developed in various ways and using various tools. However, all methods make use of the practitioner’s psychic senses and energy body.

In this Shield Maiden workshop we will cover:

  • The origins of scrying and divination
  • Mirrors Scrying techniques
  • Vision interpretation

Materials, notes and take-home kit provided.

Pentagram Power

Sunday 24th March

The Pentagram is perhaps one of the most recognised magical symbol in the world. It’s presence ripples through nature, the celestial bodies, cultures and times and the human body. It has significant numerological properties and can be used for both banishing and invocation depending on its orientation and the directions used in invocation.

In this Shield Maiden workshop we will cover:

  • The sacred geometry of the pentagram and why it is a symbol of the incarnate Divine
  • The connection between the Pentagram and the human body
  • Magical applications of the Pentagram
  • We will craft our own beautiful pentagrams as wall hangings or for our altars

Materials, notes and take-home kit provided.

Candle Magic

Sunday 21st July

Candle Magic is one of the oldest forms of spellcasting. The transmutation of the wax and element of fire, create wonderful dynamics to cast for change in our lives. In addition, the melted wax, provides a fantastic scrying tool for further guidance on the spell manifesting.

In this Shield Maiden workshop we will cover:

  • The origins of candle magic and various cultural expressions (including in our mundane lives that we may not be aware of…birthday cake anyone?)
  • Elements of candle magic spell casting
  • Wax Scrying

Materials, notes and take-home kit provided

Poppets for Personal Transformation

Sunday 22nd September

The use of proxies in magic and healing is a very old system of ‘sympathetic magic’. Today remote healing is often done via a proxy or surrogate, mothers of premature babies are given a proxy to induce milk production, the fascinating system of family constellations is done via proxies, just to name a few. Poppets are a form of sympathetic magic, yet are largely misunderstood to be associated with malevolent magic and curses thanks to Hollywood. In this workshop we will debunk the ‘evil’ reputation of Poppets and create our own positive Poppets for healing and growth.

In this Shield Maiden workshop we will cover:

  • The origins of Poppets various cultural expressions from around the world
  • Meditation to distil our Poppet Spell intention
  • We will craft our own Poppets for healing and growth

Materials, notes and take-home kit provided. (You will need to bring some personal affects to this workshop. A preparation emails will be sent to registered participants a week prior)
