This class will briefly introduce horse goddesses and gods, give techniques to strengthen magickal bonds between horse and rider, and give ideas for rituals using horseshoes, horse hair and bailing twine.

If possible, attendees should bring a small quantity of horsehair from manes or tails along with a few rubber bands.

A palm reading can shed light into the future and give a person a better sense of direction.

Brandon is a practicing witch and Priest of The Sojo Circle Coven in Greenville, NC. He draws from his natural intuition, and knowledge of Indian, Chinese and modern palmistry techniques.

Beeswax is Better

100% pure beeswax candles have arrived! We are expanding our current selection to pillars and hand dipped taper pairs in all eight available colors: Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, white, and black! We have also restocked glass jar beeswax sanctuary candles in two sizes, large heart pillars, and tealights.

Why burn beeswax over other candles? Beeswax production helps stabilize the bee population when bought from sustainability-minded companies, it burns clean and much longer than traditional candles, and your choice to buy it over paraffin speaks the only language Big Business understands: Money! E

very time you purchase a beeswax candle, you help us show manufacturers that we are ready to move away from petroleum byproducts and into a future of environmental sustainability and harmony.


TONIGHT! Love Trumps Hate: Meditation and Healing through Divine Love

Tonight, Friday, January 27, 2017 starting at 6:00pm. $10 suggested donation

Are the current politics stressing you out? Tonight we will create a sanctuary of peace — a safe, supportive, spiritual space for all of us to connect to the awesome power of Divine Love through a guided meditation, and an intention circle that will offer healing, balancing, and protection–but more importantly, clear vision, effective communication, wisdom and compassion–for everyone within our nation, all the way to the top. Love ALWAYS trumps hate. We will magickally aid the arc of the moral universe towards justice.

Note: We won’t discuss politics, but call on the powers of love to restore and empower us all, so that we may continue the good work in whatever ways we are individually called to do beyond these sanctuary walls.

Come one, come all.

The Sojo News: Upcoming Classes

Hello Sojourners!
We’ve had a very blessed Samhain weekend, and hope you have as well.

Last time I wrote you with a plea for financial help so that we could pay our rent on time and boy, oh boy, did you answer that call! Thank you to all of you beautiful angels who’ve come to shop since then and bought gift certificates, made donations and investments in future events and services here. You are amazing! Miracles happened and the Universe answered the plea through the generous actions of so many of you.

The rent and back utility bills have been paid, as has the payroll, and I’ve just given Courtney the long-awaited green light to place a restocking order for herbs, spices and teas in time for Thanksgiving. Should you have a special request for that special holiday recipe or medicinal preparation, email her at courtney@thesojo.com as soon as possible.

I know that the recent election may have brought distress to some, including me, you can read my blog post here.) It may appear that the outside world is in upheaval right now, which is to be expected during any Whitehouse transition, but inside the Sojourner we still have the same safe haven of acceptance, progressive ideals, and loving support of all our beautiful diversity. As long as we Sojourners stick together, and keep “being the change we wish to see in the world,” all our dreams remain possible. Take heart, dear ones. We are here for you, so make sure to call on us should the need ever arise.
~Heron Michelle
