Alex Sanders & Maxine Sanders events in London (May & June 2018)

Dear all..  we wait for one of these and suddenly two come along!!     We have 2 very special events..   Alex Sanders & Maxine Sanders are the Witches who founded one of the two main wiccan lineages (the Alex Sandrian wicca, and Gardnerian wicca being the other line).  Anyone interested in or following the Wicca & Witchcraft magical paths will find these events highly important.. So don’t miss it and miss out!!

here are the links to their respective facebook events.

evening with maxine sanders 25th may18

 

An Evening with Maxine Sanders – to celebrate the publication of the `Alex Sanders notebook’   ..taking place on this friday 25th May’18 (free event) at The Atlantis Bookshop in London.

The ‘Alex Sanders Notebook’ is a remarkable survival of the career of the famed King of the Witches, Alex Sanders. The notebook was kept by him over a number of years and contains both traditional witch lore and a fusion of arcane and modern occult teachings. Alex Sanders tore up the notebook (as he often did with his private writings) but the pages were taped together by a student and preserved by Maxine for over thirty years (info taken from facebook event page).


 

evening with alex sanders 9june18

Then on 9th June’18, Evening with Alex Sanders & friends- A Celebration of the Life of the King of the Witches (6 June 1926 – 30 April 1988). being held at Mary Ward House, London…an event led by Maxine Sanders, and organised by Geraldine Beskin of The Atlantis Bookshop, Darren V Strongman & Sharon Day. .  (tickets £17.50.  ust be purchased in advance).

The Evening will start with a very special Alexandrian Rite ‘led by Maxine Sanders. It is extremely rare for Maxine to be doing any kind of public working – which makes this even extra special and not something you would want to miss out on. This may be the only chance many Alexandrians will have. During the 1960s Alex met Maxine, whom he initiated into the Craft and made his high priestess. In 1965 they handfasted, and lived in a basement flat near Notting Hill Gate in London, where they ran their coven and taught classes on Witchcraft.

event will include speakers, a film, and filming of the event itself..  (info / extracts taken from facebook event).

Outdoors/ Elements & forces—————–:

These ritual circles take place in public Woodlands or parks. As they are outdoors, we are at the mercy of elements (sunshine, storms, snow, fog etc).. By being outdoors in nature regularly in a ritual setting, you’ll develop a real magical / psychic attunement & healthy respect to nature’s wild energies, as well as an inner confidence, outdoor ritual experience and dare I say.. empowerment and magical competence…

We will not tolerate ANY bullying, Harassment or any form of sexual predatory behaviour. Please report such matters to Tutor asap.
