Who is this course for?

This course is  to introduce Wicca & Witchcraft to beginners & seekers!  I often see so many people stumbling or making some mistakes or are nervous at rituals- so here it is – a full introduction.  This is for any and all those interested or curious about Wicca & Witchcraft and like  a simple, down to earth, friendly introduction…the whole lot in one half a day..!

Who is this course NOT for?  If you are already initiated or fully aware of wicca and been in other training groups for many years / months, then this is NOT for you.   Those interested in Advanced Wicca can join me for other courses in summer!

Imbolc Rituals in London (Jan/Feb 2015)

Imbolc (Candlemass) is one of the 8 nature based festivals that pagans celebrate – and it is said to be the time when the Winter Goddess who has kept her grip on the land loosens her hold, so that the ice melts and waters break and flow again. It is when the Goddess Bride (Brigid) `returns’ to the land. Her path is lit by candles, symbolising the return of light and warmth which is imminent. Bride is a Goddess of poetry, inspiration, healing, knot-magic and weaving. With her, she brings the gifts of 3 flames!

If you’re coming by tube to Chalk Farm,turn RIGHT on leaving the station & cross Adelaide Rd to get to Regents Park Rd into which you turn RIGHT (admiring the Banksy stencil graffiti of a uniformed maid sweeping dust under a wall) & go uphill to the cycle/pedestrian only bridge over a railway & turn LEFT over it.

Confronted by 3 roads take the middle one (still R P Rd) & continue past the trendy shops & coffee-houses full of minor celebrities as it curves very slightly to the left, until you reach the Queen’s Head pub on the corner opposite the gate into Primrose Hill.

Enter the Park thro’ this gate & take the steepest path in front of you to the top of the hill where you will find a viewing platform overlooking most of the old City of London to the South & East, & a Memorial to Iolo Morganwg.

To the WEST & just below the brow of the hill you will see a small copse of hawthorn trees which is where we meet. Do please come & join us & make yourself known.

And remember, we’ll be meeting up in the pub afterwards! 🙂
