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).

• 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.

*NEW* Wiccan Apprentice Course in London -Starts soon!

*NEW* Wiccan Apprentice Course in London – 3 month outdoor Training with 6 sessions – Starts on 27th April 2014!

Wicca & Witchcraft Apprentice Training Courses - Outdoors- London.  (April to June 2014)

Wicca & Witchcraft Apprentice Training Courses – Outdoors- London. (April to June 2014)

One of the challenges newcomers, Seekers & Explorers of Wicca & Witchcraft traditions face is – they can’t either find or pin down an experienced Wiccan Coven Leader(s) – and learn The Craft in the traditional apprentice manner!    People just about find `Intro Courses’ that are 4-5 hours long in an indoor hired venue – where a Tutor gives explanations and a few meditations.

This one is different. Why?  Because it’s facilitated by a Wiccan High Priest (Mani) with nearly 2 decades of Craft & Coven experience. (There – no hiding!)  And it’s facilitated by someone who has actually been not just running rituals (10 yrs), but outdoor Courses & Workshops regularly.  What’s more, this is not just a sit-down-listen to explanations & go home course.

This takes place outdoors – out in the elements and whatever weather that nature may come up with on a day.  (Been there many times!)  It immerses the Student-Seeker in nature. Well – isn’t that what being a true Wiccan / Witch is all about?

This also is fully experiential, and spread over 5-6 sessions (session 6 is private and covers Covens & Initiations).  You get to listen, learn, and practise – there and then!  And this includes 2 full workshops – on making essential tools (Wands & Pentacles) and learning key magical techniques (Rune magic & Cord / Witches Ladder magic).

All this in a natural vast woodland in London- with plenty of other facilities (Car park, toilets, Cafe, 5 minute walk from a Tube station). So all that you are learning – Apprentice-style- is imbued with the energy of nature!   You can’t escape it – even if you try!!

*For more informationand to Book your course, visit our website  Witchcraft and Wicca.org.UK*

And – there’s a bonus!   You get real Ritual experience.  Some of the sessions take place on the same day as our `Woodland Monthly Wicca Esbat Ritual Circle’ – so Students can take a break after the afternoon session (1-2 hrs) and join the evening Ritual – and watch or get even more experience ( Well, isn’t that what Apprentices should do?!! 🙂 )

What Wicca essentials are  covered:

You will learn the foundations of Wicca, Principles & laws, practise setting up Altars & Consecrate space,  do Circle casting, invoke Elemental Quarters & raise energy in the group / Circle with Witches Rune/ Chants, learn Invoking the Horned God & Triple Moon Goddess. You will also learn about doing Magic and create essential Wiccan tools (wand, Pentacle, Rune Magic & Cord Magic).

Attendance Options  (we offer various discounted fees for these)

  • Attend all *5 sessions   (includes 3 core & 2 workshops)    [*Session 6 is free and by invitation]
  • Attend just the 3 Core sessions
  • Attend just the 2 workshops
  • Attend any 1 Session or 1 workshop.

That’s quite a lot – for 5 sessions (each will be about 4 hrs)!  *There is a 6th session, FREE but that’s by invite only, and to those who will have attended 3 or more sessions, or those who are doing our home study e-Witch Apprentice course by e-mails, or those who have purchased our `Cven Guide: Become an initiated Witch’ [well, we like to reward the Seekers & Students who are learning with us in other ways too ].

For more information, fees and for Booking, visit our website  Witchcraft and Wicca.org.UK

As a Wiccan High Priest, I look forward to serving you – as you explore your wiccan path.

Cosmic Fool – Art work

Earlier in the day, I was thinking about Clowns..  and the phrase that manifested in my mind was, “Every Clown has a silver eyeliner..It helps to hide the tears..”

So I started playing with an old photo of me, wearing a `rising sign’ mask I had made when I attended an astrology weekend residential course (many years ago..  it was run by my teacher Cornelius Pascheur ).

And here is the result of the graphics..  (I could not help add the `earth-balls’ being juggled..  Am an environmentalist after all..and had to put those symbols in it ) 🙂

You can see more of my art works either on my art website Art of Mani ..or my facebook art page  Centaur Rising: Visionary art of Mani Navasothy

So what do you think of the art work?     I love to know your comments…  (and I take commissions…to do your own graphics in similar astro-art too..  So get in touch with me…to discuss 🙂

-Mani
