Welcome to our Wicca New moon : Training & Healing Circles. These will run between September- December 2018. New comers , Seekers & Beginners to Wicca welcome. We meet in the pub, then walk together to Queen’s Woods for actual ritual.
These are Practical Wicca & magic training circles. Regulars will be firmly encouraged to take on roles and practise circle-craft. (Then experienced people can take roles in our other bigger seasonal rituals).
Healing/ protection magic requests——
Healing /protection work limited to 2 people each time. Contact me in advance to make the request with details for planning the magic carefully. Work will be done only for the person actually attending the ritual. We use Healing chant and Rune-chants. Please observe confidentiality & privacy at all times.
Is it a coven?————
This is NOT a coven.. but an open/ practise circle. Those interested in serious wicca training & initiations, should attend our autumn courses & workshops and follow it up with serious commitment. Make an appointment and talk to Mani in person.
What’s on the Altar?——
we shall start to be more careful of what we place on altar! Each ritual is prepared and has certain themes/ expectations. Some God/Goddess items are not always suitable in every ritual.
These circles are facilitated by Mani – an initiated Wiccan High Priest, with over 22 years of Craft & Cove experiences in London, UK. Mani has published several books on Wicca, runs training courses, provides an e-Witch Apprentice course online, and writes extensive blogs on Astrology & magical topics.

Friday 13th July 2018 is a day of New Moon and partial Solar Eclipse in the psychic & intuitive water sign of Cancer! And we are gearing up for a special ritual – to aid the removal of blockages, reclaiming your primal magical currents within, and raising your Witch-powers! This new moon/ solar eclipse time is just perfect for beginning this work!
We’ll set up a wicca circle, and proceed with a meditative & transpersonal work for stage 1, then work ceremonially for clearing blockages, and finally do ritual magical work for your own energy raising and creation of a witch-charm.
These circles are facilitated by Mani – an initiated Wiccan High Priest, with over 21 years of Craft & Cove experiences in London, UK. Mani has published several books on Wicca, runs training courses, provides an e-Witch Apprentice course online, and writes extensive blogs on magical topics.

In the same way, please do not just `leave’ the circle in the middle of a ritual in progress.

AFTER RITUAL : Sharing Food & Drinks and Magical thoughts —————-
Circle will close after a few rounds of passing blessed Cakes & drink from the Altar. Then we may have time to be seated and have some communal magical chats.. (avoid mundane chats immediately after ritual please.. Allow magic to sink in.. Don’t become chaotic or noisy after ritual. Avoid worldly gossips, politics, promotions for other events.. Keep all thoughts positive and be in the moment.. If anything, share your experiences of what the ceremony has brought and clarify magical points, symbolisms and any questions that may have risen. It is important to remain in a tranquil, magical-mode after ceremony..to allow magic energies to sink in and transform us.
LEAVING the site—————
Once formal ritual & magical work is complete, Organiser will need 20mins to recharge and pack up Altar items before leaving around 10.30pm. If anyone wishes to leave immediately after ritual, alone or in groups, you are responsible for your own way back to the road.
Near the time please check `comments’ section of this event.. for any additional info/ preparations.
We begin a series of workshops for teaching tools, techniques needed for psychic protection, safety, making sigils, talismans & charms and doing deeper level High Magic rituals.. These are often kept `secret’ or students have to read hundreds of pages of books (Golden Dawn, Keys of Solomon), or end up trawling internet for not so well-thought out blogs. People often copy what they see, without checking for mistakes which then get propagated..and don’t produce the results they want in their magic.. or worse ..the mistakes create magical side-effects that can cause more psychic problems with supernatural beings, entities, spirits. One tiny mistake can easily cause someone many years of problems. (been there done that!)
In this practical workshop, you’ll be taught:
-The Element invoking pentagrams for Air, Fire, Water & Earth (and banishing pentagrams), and explained how they derive from the astrological chart (High Magic).
– Introduced to the system of Planetary Hours, and what day/ what hour precisely to do planetary magical spells for better results.
– System of magic squares (Kameas) and their planetary connections, that further enhance planetary magic; How to systematically create/ draw them for initial invocation of those energies; What metals to use;
– Use of Planetary seals (sigils/ symbols) used to create talismans and charms.
– How to create deeper sigils for specific spell-casting, using Kameas (this is often never explained in online blogs. And neither am I going to blog it).
Unlike our other courses/ workshops, teaching High Magic requires much more organisation & attention, efficiency and practise. Teaching these require clear step by step progress, less chit-chat or social distractions, learning tools that then help with further tools and techniques. So all students will be given a `workbook’ at start of course, for taking notes & doing exercises.
You may RSVP by all means (( meetup link at the bottom of this blog), but please complete payment for a confirmed space. Spaces are kept strictly limited for purpose of teaching subject matters efficiently. After the course, you’ll have access to video tutorials by Tutor for viewing and practice.
(This is an outdoor course, so please attend with proper weather-appropriate clothing, pack lunch, note book, and attend after a good night’s sleep for focus. I do my best to teach in a down to earth, easy to understand manner, but some concepts and work still require good focus and attention on your part. Understanding principles is important in high magical work so that there are no doubts or uncertainties, through which `problems’ can creep in).
Until now, I have kept all my teaching to Wicca, paganism and what i call `low magic’ work that involves chants, candles, cords. However, behind the scenes, when people have contacted me via websites & pages privately, i have done my best to advise them. But as with many things, prevention is better than cure, when you are upto your eye balls in psychic attacks, hexes and entities. So am starting these workshops to help others and share important magical works in psychic protection & magical safety!
Everything living has a survival instinct..and when a moment comes – to be killed or be killed, each must make a choice. That’s just biology. I also believe in the Collective unconscious, where all the minds are linked.. And that when we humans don’t deal with our emotions, repress them, we sink those shadows deep into the collective..adding to its murky waters..
It follows that every killing instinct everyone has all adds up.. every hurt person who wants to lash out at their offender.. can seek revenge by hurting back or repressing or dealing with that (process it and transform it).
Now I think that some of us are strong willed enough to sink our repressed feelings and instincts…and get on with life. But some poor sod (person) out there who has no strength of Will…but is connected to the human collective…will have a weak `flooring’ through which the repressed collection of harmful instincts will erupt out.. !!
In short, what we repress comes out in someone else.. and they become the villain…the abuser..the killer..the rapist..the murderer!
This much I have formulated/understood and believed for over a decade and a half..(since 2001 when i started learning transpersonal psychology and blending it with my own spirituality and beliefs). ps. I call this my `Volcano theory of human shadows!’ (that the visual I get).
When we are faced with such a villain, it’s easy to brand him/ her as utterly evil.. It’s humanly impossibly not to hate or vilify that person. I personally would fall for that every time.. ! We would even call that person `Evil’ . But i try to accept that…that person is only a conduit for the sum of all our own darkness and shadows!
As for Evil.. I actually don’t think there is such a thing.. shockingly!!
But there is a selfish drive in all of us..all beings..including the spirits..that were once human or animal..or were never born as such. I don’t think that dying somehow removes some of these selfish or self-preserving drives.
It is my belief now (after the last 4 years of various psychic experiences)..that the spirit world is full of creatures.. entities.. everything from ghosts of a dead worm and insects to humans..and some forces we come to call angels.. even Gods! everything wants to survive..to go on..to keep its identity. They will do this however way they see fit.. unless some altruistic feelings stop them from hurting other beings. The dead worm’s spirit will keep on trying to scour for `food’ (energy).. and that can be coming from vampiristic / leeching from humans who are living..
And the `Angels’ won’t steal from us..but try to aid.. As for Demons.. they are probably larger beings who act on their drive for energy and power ..and may temporarily `work’ to aid some humans..but in the end ..their motives are entirely self-serving.
Well..this is the grand theory/ belief I have constructed for myself over years.. and this is probably the first time I have put it all in one go..in one place.. (these exist in copious hand written notes in paper…and spill out when i give talks or workshops..in pieces)
–version 1: 11th April 2018
The above was written in answer to a friend’s question about do I believe people can be evil or who they become by following a path.
That question arose in answer to my post :
Angels & Demons in our minds and magical works:
It puzzles me.. why, when we have so many hundreds if not thousands of Godforms, Angelic forces, fairies, dragons and nature spirits.. do some people leap off and seek Devils & Demonic forces to work with?
I don’t accept the explanation that they are working with their shadows. If that’s the case, the first option is a Therapist, a counselor or a Psychiatrist!
The only explanation I can think of is…those others believe that their work with `demonic forces’ is somehow more fundamental or more powerful …than any other forms or forces..such as Gods & Angels!
Millions if not billions of people around the Globe get on with their lives, without it, and at best they call on a God or Angel…more so than a demon!
Never mind them…I myself have got this far in life.. by working with Gods and Goddess forms, and perhaps some angelic energies. When certain entities are trying to intrude, a simple `Om Shivaya’ chant has been more than enough to stop it. Perhaps it’s the Gods..perhaps its my belief in the Gods.. that gives me this advantage over unknown forces. It’s safe to say, my work will always be with the light, while I carry on illuminating my own transpersonal shadows.
I have no blooming idea who I am.. artist, writer, magician, shaman, witch, Wiseman, trickster, director, producer..blah.. blah.. In the end.. I think I am Mani.. yay.. great conclusion to a long quest, right? Wrong! Even that is a name given to me by my parents (not even the first one.. they gave me another name..and changed their minds and few weeks later went and changed it on the certificate :-p ) So anyway as I often point out.. the magical / witch / shaman names we give ourselves in initiation rituals is a tad bit more of our own choosing than the name we’ve been stuck / blessed with since our birth. (hint: They call it `given name’ .. perhaps all forms we fill should henceforth have ..along with `give name, family name, married name’ another box too.. called `chosen name’ ?!)
But anyway.. so the only way forward ..is to go backward and clean up all this transpersonal mess.
This is why in esoteric realms, we rant on about `Know Thy self’.. not easy as it sounds..or all these born-last-night-gurus make it out to be. `Know thy Self’ is a quest that can first strip you bare to the bone.. and then some more.. It’s more than just `breakdown to breakthrough’.. !
I remember an episode in the old Babylon-5, when Captain Sheridan goes to the Shadow world ..and dies..as forecasted. (`If you go to Zahadum, you will die’) . Then a whole episode came up where he finds himself in a dark cave.. ( how symbolic and womb-like) and with an ancient wise-alien (Lorien the First One).. and the one question Lorien kept asking.. `Who are you?’. Sheridan has to figure this out before he is somehow brought back to life in `our world’.. (self realisation gives birth to identity?!) with some sort of borrowed time.. (spoiler alert – decades later, he goes into space and just sort of fades/ bursts into light).
This has stayed with me for so long.. and I marvel at the deeper transpersonal symbology behind it all.. Going into our own shadows and clearing it means we experience a death…because the old self full of shadows changes…(death and rebirth).. The question `who are you’ is the most powerful one of all that kills everything we think and feel we are… till we reach a single simple deeper truth (can’t tell you what that is ..it may be different for you and me).
And at our eventual physical death, all that energy locked up in our body is released. Okay when its’ cremation or decades of decay in a coffin below ground.. we don’t see this energy release…But if it were to happen in one moment..we’d see all of our `mass’ transform into energy (light).. After all. it was light (energy) that was transformed into mass in the first place…inside a star.. long before we even became born as humans. (every atom in out body came from something else around us.. food..air..water.. but it can all be traced back to the star where it was created out of energy…cos `we are star dust’).
So is that who you are…a thinking piece of Star Dust?
What about before?
wait a sec.. !!!
Am I going too far ..too wide..too deep and too long into the past? well.. did you travel with me down this Quantum rabbit hole? Great… ‘cos this was step one of the `Know thy self’!

(Gardnerian Wiccan High Priest)
A copyright note: I’ve been running these (particularly woodland-based) `Wiccan Apprentice’ courses for many years, as 1-day courses, 3-part courses and 5-part courses (since 2006), and as e-witch Apprentice course (9 modules) since 2012. While the subject and contents of Wicca do not exclusively belong to me or anyone, I am an initiated Gardnerian Wiccan High Priest with authority to teach and train others, and this particular way of grouping Wicca topics and delivering them has been my own `innovation’ since 2006, as evidenced by records (flyers, blogs, website publicit & course notes) that I am able to produce! Anyone embarking on teaching Wicca should start from ground up and devise their own form syllabus/ grouping.
A note on charging a fee: While for decades the teaching and running of courses on Wicca has been done by hundreds of established Wiccans/ Elders of the Craft (for a fee), the process of actual Initiating someone (properly prepared) into a Coven has always been done freely and without any fee, by all respectable Coven leaders including myself. The fees we charge are for the preparation of courses, organising an event and giving our time as Teachers.
