TLC: Full moon Ceremonies by river Thames, central London (April, May, June 2018)

We’ve been holding Full moon ceremonies & other rituals by the banks of river Thames – in central London, Hammersmith, Putney & Richmond – since 2006! (Under the group name `Tamesa London Circle’).  Five years ago these evolved into Thames-Isis rituals (Isidias Navigatum in March, Birthday of Goddess Isis in July, Quests of Isis in October, Submerging Sekhmet and so on).

We continue to hold monthly full moon ceremonies by the river banks in central London, as it seems easily accessible to many and popular.  The dates for TLC full moon rituals are now set for April, May & June 2018 (In July, it is an eclipse, so the ceremony will be different).  Events are already set up for my meetup group `London Woodland Witches Pagans & Ritual Magicians’ (link at the bottom).

Meeting point:

Gather outside the Green area of Tate Modern Gallery (main doors). We’ll walk down to the banks of Thames and do this ceremony. If you are late, just find the steps, walk down to river bank, and join us. We’re usually under the concrete over-hang/ sheltered space. Thames & Tides:

Our rituals tale place on the actual river bank…just few meters away from the water, but in a secluded spot..where there is usually some sand. We organise these Thames-rituals after checking Port of London authority Thames Tide time tables.. to take place at low tide.. (At high tide the entire river bank is under many meters of water!!).

Safety:
The steps are slippery. bank of Thames after previous tide will be full of new things and sharp objects. Take extreme care with your own health & safety. You are responsible for your safety.
**No children allowed**
**Unfortunately the location is not suitable for anyone with walking disabilities**

What to bring:

• Please dress appropriate for weather! (we carry on Rituals regardless of weather).
• Please bring food & drinks to share ( bread & cheese / humus are a good start) and any soft drink/wine that you like to share with others in circle.
• a torchlight is a good idea. Feasting/ sharing food & Drinks:

After the ritual circle on the river bank is completed, some people leave for home. Others stay behind to socialise. We tend to go back up to street level, to the grassy green area outside Tate Modern Gallery and socialise/ share food & drinks.. If it’s raining, we just go to the nearby Pub within sight.

High Magic Workshop 2: Planetary Kameas, Seals & Element pentagrams (London, outdoors)

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!)

High Magic Golden Dawn Planetary squares Kamesa seals Sigils Psychic protection
High Magic workshop 2 – Planetary kameas & seals – 9th June 2018 – by Mani Navasothy

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.

—————

Preparation:
(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).

Personal note:
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!

High Magic Workshop 1: Kabbalistic Cross, LBRP & Creating Archangel sigils (London, outdoors)

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..

High Magic Golden Dawn LBRP Archangel sigils Psychic protection
High Magic1 course – LBRP, Kabbalistic Cross, Archangel sigils 20th May 2018 – by Mani Navasothy

For serious space/ energy clearing before any important high magical or ritual work, LBRP is often used by ritualists. No tool is required other than clear use of god names, energetic visualising, drawing energy, creating pentagrams and calling on archangels. So it can be done anywhere.

In this practical workshop, you’ll be taught LBRP step by step, showing:

– Kabbalistic Cross – bringing down divine light and beaming it in all 6 directions over the body
– Banishing Pentagrams to clear energy, using Hebrew God names
– Calling on 4 Archangels as protection in the 4 quarters.
In addition to teaching this in slow step by step, and all students then practicing it in a group several times (so that you can go home and do this on your own with full confidence), we’ll also be covering:
– The Rose Cross wheel used in Golden Dawn, the Hebrew names of the four Archangels, and how to write their names in sigil forms. This technique can then be used by you to write all other angelic names in sigil forms for your own talisman making and ritual magical calling of angels.

Unlike our other courses/ workshops, teaching High Magic requires much more organisation & attention, efficiency and practise. So all students will be given a `workbook’ at start of course, for taking notes & doing exercises. You will practice LBRP under supervision.

** Fee: £3 per person **

woodland beltane bg2018

About Beltane:

`The veil between the world of men and fairy (or spirit) is said to thin twice a year, at Beltane and at Samhain, which are on opposite points of the year wheel. At Beltane (May eve) the land is at it’s most lush and green, and fertile. If Spring Equinox is the time of fertility and mating in the animal kingdom, then Beltane is one of courting couples making commitment to one another- and Handfastings! In the God-Goddess myths, this is when the playful God is said to commit to the Goddess – which is symbolised by the Sacred Marriage! The Maypole dance that is traditional at this time symbolises the fertile powers of the masculine, penetrating the land, and the ribbons danced and woven around it lock that power! A ring of flower at the tip of the Maypole signifies the feminine. Magical working with the Fay (Fairies) is an important feature at this time, in contrast to the magical work with the departed spirits at Samhain, the opposite point’ (taken from http://www.WitchcraftandMagic.uk )

RITUAL :

Out ritual *Team will conduct key aspects of the ceremony, with plenty of opportunities for everyone to get involved in the actual ritual – ie with elements calling, chants, magical work and so on.

****Fee: £3 per person***

Handfasting / confirming Pagan marriage vows:

In the past, couples have asked organiser about this. Handfasting is a big event in itself, and we do not wish it to be included in a public ceremony as a `side-event’. However, after Blessings of Cakes & Wine (and while still within our magical circle/ sacred space), we may consider couples who are already bonded, to declare their vows / re-affirm their vows by our altar.

**(please message Mani- Wiccan High Priest- in private in advance to arrange this – or simply to arrange your own separate day for handfasting!)**

Woodland Spring Equinox Ritual (25th Marc 2018)

Spring equinox is a time of new beginning and initiating enterprises. A time of reaching balance between Dark & Light.. day & night. It is a time of noticeable lengthening of daylight hours and quickening. Flowers blooming, trees sprouting buds and leaves. Astrologically, the Sun enters the firey sign of Aries. We work actively to balance the opposing forces in our lives, and a bit of personal `spring-cleaning’ internally, then explore the mystery of Spring, through the God-Goddess cycle. Mating and fertility rites are obviously being played out by all wildlife in nature at this moment.

ps.————
am combining the `Isidias Navigatum ceremony with this one. we will be focusing on our hopes and wishes of good fortune and success as Spring approaches. A blue painted egg will be blessed by all and `planted’ into the soil as symbolic of Spring. elemental invocations will be said in Egyptian words. We will pour milk on the banks. As the final part of the ritual, a small replica boat(s) will be filled with spices and other magical items, and placed in the river as an offering to the Goddess Isis. Bring your own small boats! Be it paper boats or small scale models – to either sail them on the river Thames (19Feb’18)

This time, we’ll be adding more magical aspects to these easy-going rituals – bringing Goddess Isis as a focus (Thames-Isis) and Father Thames, as well as exploring some Serpent/ Dragon magic (Thames is often seen as a giant water-serpent snaking through heart of London), and we’ll be adding eco-magic for well-being of London. All these are elements we have explored before, but now as a regular component of these Thames-based rituals.

Meeting point:

Gather outside the Green area of Tate Modern Gallery (main doors). We’ll walk down to the banks of Thames and do this ceremony. If you are late, just find the steps, walk down to river bank, and join us. We’re usually under the concrete over-hang/ sheltered space. Thames & Tides:

Our rituals tale place on the actual river bank…just few meters away from the water, but in a secluded spot..where there is usually some sand. We organise these Thames-rituals after checking Port of London authority Thames Tide time tables.. to take place at low tide.. (At high tide the entire river bank is under many meters of water!!).
On this evening, low tide is at 8.30pm. It takes several hours for tide to come in.. so after ritual.. if we notice the tide turning ..we still have plenty of time to pack up and go up the steps to street level.

Safety:
The steps are slippery. bank of Thames after previous tide will be full of new things and sharp objects. Take extreme care with your own health & safety. You are responsible for your safety.
**No children allowed**
**Unfortunately the location is not suitable for anyone with walking disabilities**

What to bring:

• Please dress appropriate for weather! (we carry on Rituals regardless of weather).
• Please bring food & drinks to share ( bread & cheese / humus are a good start) and any soft drink/wine that you like to share with others in circle.
• a torchlight is a good idea. Feasting/ sharing food & Drinks:

After the ritual circle on the river bank is completed, some people leave for home. Others stay behind to socialise. We tend to go back up to street level, to the grassy green area outside Tate Modern Gallery and socialise/ share food & drinks.. If it’s raining, we just go to the nearby Pub within sight.
