**NEW** Wicca New Moon: Gaia-Selene Healing Circles in London (monthly, outdoors)

Dear all..

As of the coming new moon, we are starting a new monthly ritual circle in the woods.. Wicca New Moon : Gaia-Selene Circles. If the full moon is for bubbling cauldrons and magic brimming to the surface, then new moons are for seeds, intents, going deeper within for magical & psychic development, Healing & transformative work.

These Wicca New Moon Circles are not our usual flamboyant, energetic, noisy rituals – but involve taking time to connect to Gaia/Earth & trees, reaching inner stillness, peace and flow of magic, and the use of that magic for healing and empowerment.

Facilitator:

These circles are facilitated by Mani Navasothy – initiated Wiccan High Priest, with over 21 years of The Craft & Coven experiences including training and initiating Wiccans.

Fee: £3

The tutor travels from south London to run these events, by popular requests for events in North London. Fees collected therefore go towards travel & costs of running this event (candles, spell craft items, cakes & wine for blessing etc).

At these events, the following will be covered : 

• Gaia meditations.

• Personal Energy work (varies)

• Wicca New Moon Ceremony

• Some Wicca Basics practise  (Consecration, Circle, Elemental quarters)

• Healing & spell craft (Subject to development)

Your attendance:

You may attend once or regularly and gain benefit for your self, and/or do healing work for your friends & loved ones (ask them permission first please..).

Or you may simply attend and gain grounding, centre the self, and energising your self.

These monthly gatherings will open with a basic wiccan consecrations & circle set-up, then extend into meditation, chant, and finally extended Magic & Healing works at hand; Be also open to working intuitively.

Attend with an open mind and a trusting heart.

As these are evening events in the woods, please dress warmly, possibly with water-proof clothing.

Bring a blanket for wrapping as there will sections where we’ll be seated and be still for meditative parts;  Also bring a cushion and a small picnic blanket to sit on for comfort (often the ground can be damp.. ). Bringing a small flask of hot drink for your self will be an added bonus.

Note: Initially, these monthly Wicca New moon Gaia-Selene circles will run from  May’17 for 3 months and continue into Autumn/ Winter,  subject to further interests.

Meeting point  (may differ each time):

Please be in the garden area of The Woodman’s Pub, Archway Road – Please arrive and be ready to go by 7pm.  We will all walk together (10 mins) to a suitable spot in woods for the Wicca Circle. (exact woodland location may change on the night. So please meet at pub garden).

Note to Late arrivals:

Because we have to set-up, do ceremony and return by 10pm, we regret we can not wait for late-comers.

Love & Bright Blessings

-Mani

No previous experience of Eclipse magical working necessary. Eclipse Magic rituals are quite unique and separate ..and use practical tools (some modern ones such as a plasma-wand), astrological symbols/ names, some transpersonal work and magical visualisations.  These are all uniquely explored by Mani for many years (almost 20 years).

• Date:  Sunday 20th August 2017

• Time: Gather from 12.30pm at Wimbledon Tea Rooms

• Workshop :   1pm to 5pm.  (includes ritual at exact time of Eclipse)

  • Venue: Workshop takes place in the Wimbledon Woods.   But meeting point is at `Wimbledon Tea Rooms’
  • How to get there:  From either Wimbledon or Putney, take bus 93. Alight at `Parkside Hospital’ stop, and walk along Windmill Road to `Wimbledon Windmill Tea room’ and meet us there. We’ll go into the woods to do workshop/ ritual.

About Eclipse-Magic

The stellar forces of Eclipses are comparable to chaotic stormy seas – and knowing when Eclipses take place and what types of personal magic you can do, enables you to tap into those powers to accelerate, course-correct, enhance and empower your life!

Every Year there are at least 2 pairs of Eclipses (Solar & Lunar) – which means you can do Eclipse Magical works 4 or more times in a year! Some works can be done with only 5 minutes of effort, and others take a few weeks or even a few months of preparation. But all create intense changes over longer periods of time in your life.
This innovative, easy to use e-book gives full introductions to the Science, Astronomy, Astrology, Esoterica & Magical core concepts useful to all who like to experiment with Eclipse Magical Techniques. Mani Navasothy has been personally exploring these for over 15 years, and is now sharing his own secret techniques of using Stellar energies for Balancing, Cleansing, Powering Up, as well as the highly specialist methods of using Dragon Magic & Portals and Cosmic Gateways.

Watch a Video explanation: 

You can watch a previous video filmed by Mani, explaining some general work/ principles of Eclipse Magic.

You may explore backgrounds to Eclipse Magic by visiting Mani’s free website dedicated to this subject matter…where charts, free webinars, videos and intro  e-books are all available..

Serpent Power – Magical Workshops coming soon! (London)

Okay..I can’t contain this excitement so am going to just blurt it.. Melanie Philippides and I have been planning a set of rather powerful workshops involving.. ( take a deep breath).. snakes! Pythons in fact. She has 2.. and is looking after a 3rd one.. one of them is very large indeed..(twice as big as this one in photo).. whom I met yesterday evening.. for ..shall we say, `getting attuned’ before working on the details of workshops..!) 🙂

Mani & Melanie serpent power workshops coming soon .jpg

I met Melanie first at the Birthday of Goddess Isis ritual by Cleopatra’s Needle, Embankment, in 2013.. but lost touch for a few years but was facebook friends. The photo below was taken at one of Melanie’s snake / fusion Belly dance performance in a venue in Croydon last October’15 where I met her again (and Shiva). We seem to have all that Game of Throne, snakes & Dragons magical explorations in common..and the result now of course are these magical joint workshops..

Bright Blessings
