We are open to new people joining our ritual team…people who show sincerity, some long term commitment, and willingness to be patient and work well with existing team. If that interests you..first stop is to com to some of our rituals and see how we do things. 2nd stop is to come to the smaller full moon / new moon training circles and start taking on smaller roles.. 🙂
Next Wicca new moon circle is tomorrow Friday at Queen’s woods.
Are you a natural Witch? Into magic & spellcraft? Or do you want to be a One? See if the impulses you feel inside you are more than just curiosity.. that it’s instincts.. a magical release.. an awakening? And do you want to become an initiated Wiccan & a Witch ? Be in a coven of Witches? Form your own coven perhaps? Is that even possible? Are you tired of reading books, trawling websites and social media – looking for connections, knowledge? Worried about whats the `norm’ these days? What’s right? What’s wrong? What’s safe.. and what’s magically dangerous?
So many thoughts and not enough starts?!!

Wicca: 1-day experiential course, Outdoors.

See if the impulses you feel inside you are more than just curiosity.. that it’s instincts.. a magical release.. an awakening? And do you want to become an initiated Wiccan & a Witch ?

This is a special workshop (first time!) , scheduled to tap into the stellar and highly transformative energies of the set of 3 Eclipses coming up (Partial Solar Eclipse/ 13th July; Full moon Eclipse/27th July; Partial Solar eclipse 11th August). Eclipses usually occur in pairs (A solar & a Lunar one) but this is a rare occasion indeed where there is a set of 3. So it provides a unique opportunity.
I wrote and published a book `Eclipse Magic workbook’ in 2012 – first book of it’s kind (go on do a search on google for anything like that before 2012!). Since then as with the 100th monkey effect, eclipse magic has started to filter into astrological forecasts of other people. I’ve even found people illegally selling some of my eBooks on internet (sad fact of our times!).
So for the first time I am setting up a course of 3-4 hours to talk through and teach basics of Eclipse Magic as I have practised it for almost 2 decades. (I set up these courses twice before, and cancelled it. But have run 2 ritual events on eclipse nights or just before..to give short guidance). This one however will be extensive.
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.
Note: This course will be cancelled in the event of low numbers of booking and any payments returned in such an event.
*Special offer: You may rsvp, and attend the course and pay on the day. However for all who book in advance with fee, a free download link will be sent to my book, `Introduction to Eclipse Magic – A Beginners Guide’
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.

You can watch a previous video filmed by Mani, explaining some general work/ principles of Eclipse Magic.
An outdoor experiential course suitable for all beginners, and those following the Pagan or Wiccan path, with an interest in ceremonial / ritual working with Horned God forms and Moon Goddess forms. Such work is transformative and deeply empowering.
New date: Saturday 2nd June 2018
• God forms in Wicca: Cernunnos, Hern, Pan, Green Man, Dark Lord (Death), Sun God, Odin, Osiris …amongst others. The symbology of Horns, hooves, antlers are explained, as well as some discussion on the demonising (Pagan god seen as satan/ devil) of the god by non-pagans. We’ll deal with any hidden fears, old conditionings and prejudices, and work transpersonally to reconnect with the Horned God of Wicca and his empowering wildwood energies. Chants will be taught and used.
• Moon Goddess in Wicca: We’ll explore the Triple-Goddess imagery used in Wicca- maiden, mother and crone, as well as the various other significant examples used in wiccan wheel of the Year.
• Wheel & The God-Goddess cycle of the Year : explained with diagrams and notes- ie the maiden Persephone’s abduction at Autumn, motherhood, rejuvenated Bride arriving back to land at Imbolc; Marriage of God & Goddess at Beltane; the sacrifice of the God at Lammas; coming of Dark Lord at Samhain; Birth of Sun-child at Yule and more.
• Invocations, evocations and Charges of God & Goddess : What happens after circle is cast and energy raised in a coven? How are the god & Goddess brought into the Circle? Who carries those energie? What is the Drawing down of the Moon? And Sun? How does working with God & Goddess empower Witches? All will be explained.
• Examples of invocations (use on your own at home or group rituals).
• Use of masks/ crowns/ horns & props – for working with wildwood God & Goddess energies.
• Divine Masculine & Feminine pathworking with various symbolisms (transpersonal created to work with intuition & subconscious mind for empowerment) – to meet the God and Goddess.

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!)
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.
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. 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!

ps. the second Blue moon in 2018 occurs on 31st March 2018. More on that and eclipses soon.

Peace Day background:
Few years ago I met Jeremy Gilley at a London Entrepreneur Meeting (He had just 5 minutes to tell everyone all about it. It turns out, he founded a non-profit organisation `Peace One Day’ in 1999, and campaigned for just 1 day of peace in war zones. In 2001, United Nations formally adopted the first ever annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence. So inspired by this – and having never heard of it till that moment, I decided to hold `Peace Day Picnics’ in London.. and have been doing son for few years now..)

Back in August 2015, I began `sleeping in the garden’ for a few days – that extended to few weeks..It was okay because it was summer time..
But then a quest began.. I decided to stay a bit longer and enjoy being connected to nature, mark the cycles, be invaded by foxes, feel storms and rains shake my tent and so on..
Then I thought let’s test myself by being out there for Winter…and it worried me (am the weakling-guy who used to get sick all the time if i got wet or had a small injury)..
Now..well, winter has come and gone.. ! While mother Earth held me and sister willow watched over me, the elements have torn me and stripped me to the bone and soul, and re-built me.
Am constantly aware of the plights of homeless people in streets.. and surely will do something soon about it..
Summer is almost here.. along with a new threat …pollens.. and I’ve become `used’ to being out.. Used to getting, coming into the house, wash and go about my life.but at night finish up.. go into garden..see clear skies, planets (Jupiter is there every night).. see the moon wax..wane and wax again.. and go into my tent…set up candles (around tent) and inside.. put on my chanting music in earphones..wrap up and fall asleep..with gods and magical things in mind!
Yes there have been ups and downs.. moments of solitudes turning to loneliness..but that’s no so much a physical but a mental thing or one of the heart..
This has been quite an empowering thing.. grounding..connecting to nature.. going deeply within to face my own darkness and shadows, tuning into my own energies & power, finding more humility but also becoming more assertive & confident in a quiet way. I have nothing to prove..Am alive..and there are wonderful people in my life.. so many new people and things have entered my life…and much of the old has been reviewed, healed and transformed.. ..and life’s mysteries (and my-Story) is still unfolding..
There is so much to say about all the insights, learnings, ideas, thoughts and revelations that are flooding my hear & mind.. The work is ongoing (for now). And I’ll share more of it over the coming weeks and months..
Bright Earthly Blessings
