Join us for a 6 week introduction, offered to students over 18,
Primarily taught by Webweaver, Jupiter and Heron Michelle.

This session we’ll cover the foundations of Modern Witchcraft and Neo-Paganism.

Following this session, students may be invited to join the coven in our Solar celebration of Imbolc – the Sabbat of High Winter.

What is Modern Witchcraft?

Modern Witchcraft, as it is taught at The Sojourner, is a path towards Personal Sovereignty based on wisdom, empowerment and responsibility. It stands proudly on the historical and religious foundations of our ancestors; yet, we look to the future and strive to create a healthy way of life in a modern world. We blend scientific knowledge with ancient mysticism to evolve beyond superstition into a spirituality that brings healing, peace, and balance to the seeker. The path of the witch is a dance to the rhythm of nature. This dance transforms and strengthens us, while giving us a framework for processing the lessons of this life with grace. To seek the path of the Witch is to seek enlightenment.

Modern Witchcraft Training Program – Seekers Meeting – Free
December Wednesday, December 7

6 PM – 8 PM

This seeker meeting is for any adults over the age of 18 who are interested in pursuing training in Modern Witchcraft through The Sojourner Tradition of Witchcraft. We invite you to this free and open event to meet us, learn about the program, and receive all the registration materials for the first Session that will meet on 5 Thursday nights from December 29th-Jan. 26th. Registration fees are due at time of enrollment; $90 for the 5 weeks of classes and is non-refundable. Seating is limited and is a first-come-first-serve basis, so please enroll in advance.
Please note that this first session is the ONLY open enrollment time–afterwards, it will be closed to new students for the remainder of the year. After the first 5 classes of the session, there is an individual interview to determine if continued training is in the best interest of the student. Those supported to continue, will be invited to our Imbolc Sabbat celebration on Thursday, February 2 at 6:00, off-site, for the ritual of dedication to that year’s studies and involvement with the coven.
We expect 4 main guidelines of behavior and interaction to be respected while enrolled with us. They will be explained in detail at the meeting:
1) Do not burn the Witch.
2) Do not be the Asshole.
3.) Do not be the Weak Link.
4.) Must be present to win.
We prefer new seekers to be present for both the seeker meeting and every class, as they build upon each other, and we take rule 4 very seriously in considering who we invite to join us for dedication.

What is a “seeker?”

Good question. A seeker is a person pursuing training in Modern Witchcraft, and trying out different traditions, styles, groups, and teachers, before settling on one particular program within which you would “dedicate” to a full year’s training. After dedicating to train within our coven at Imbolc, you are then considered a “dedicant.”

Seekers can be any sex, gender identity, or sexual preference; of any race, from any heritage, creed, nation, anything… However, we will ask that our students be at least 18 years of age (for legal reasons) and physically, mentally, emotionally, and financially stable enough to beneficially use the information and skills that we teach, and able to participate and contribute in a fair and equitable way to the over-all success of our group.

In short, paganism is for everyone. A Witch can look like, be, and come from anywhere, but Modern Witchcraft as a praxis and job-description is a demanding path not suitable for everyone. It’s demands of radical personal sovereignty, self-reliance, sacrifice and responsibility will best serve a relatively small subset of pagans, and that is absolutely OK. You’ll never know if this path is correct for you until you give it a try, and we are here to help you discover the answers to these questions.

So, are you a legal adult with the resources you need to survive, thrive and contribute fairly? Can you manage your life and current responsibilities reasonably well? Do you have the extra time, mobility and energy to commit to this program, including showing up for class, reading the required texts, and working independently on your spiritual practice? Are you ready to level up in your personal empowerment? After that, all you really need is an open and curious mind, and an open heart.

Thank you! See you soon!

High Priestess, The Sojo Circle Coven

The Sojo News: Crystal Ball Raffle to be Drawn on Black Friday

Merry Meet, Sojourners!
Have you yet seen this amazing Crystal Ball we have on raffle at the shop? We borrowed it for a divination class a few weeks ago, and took this picture of it in glorious action. It helped to create a powerful experience for our students, and it could be yours! Each chance to win costs only $5.

img_3424

This Leaded Crystal Scrying Sphere is a whopping 278mm diameter, and weighs in at 55 pounds!  It comes with a wooden, rotating stand. This baby once lit a tablecloth on fire with a sunbeam, so be careful where you display it!  We have never seen its like, and we’ve done a lot of looking…

The purpose of this raffle is to help out a Sojourner friend who has fallen on hard times and was looking for a buyer for this Spectacular Oracular device for which he originally paid $1500. Sadly, there aren’t many folks we know who could fairly compensate him at that price outright. BUT TOGETHER, through the generosity of many, we hope to raise enough funds to  make a difference in his life.  Every penny raised will go to our friend…

TO THAT END, I’ve moved the drawing date back to Black Friday, November 25th. Just in time for holiday gift giving.

Again, for every $5 donation, we’ll enter another chance for you to win. You DO NOT have to be present on Black Friday to win. If you can’t get to the shop, call us at 252-758-7656, and we’ll process payment over the phone, and fill out your raffle tickets for you.

During this time of Thanksgiving, we thank you for your generosity and wish you the best of luck in the raffle!

Thanksgiving blessings,
Heron Michelle

 SOAP: We are now working with a lovely couple located in Raleigh, supplying our store with high-quality handmade soap. These soaps are made from almost entirely raw, organic, and natural ingredients. They only use natural essential oils in their products, and the resulting smell is amazing! We are stocking 12 of their numerous therapeutic soaps, with the potential to expand into more. Many are also made specifically vegan, and are labeled as such for those concerned or interested. Stop by to pick up a bar today and let us know what you think!

Available soaps: Derma Neem Cream Beauty/Facial Soap, From Hair 2 Toe Shampoo and Body Soap, Organic Calendula Flowers Therapeutic Soap, Rose & Australian Pink Clay Therapeutic Soap, Chlorophyll & Charcoal Therapeutic Soap, Healing Honey Bee Soap, Goat’s Milk & Emu Oil Soap, Tea Tree/Lavender/Spearmint Therapeutic Soap, 4 Thieves Essential Oil Therapeutic Soap, Patchouli Sweet Orange Soap, White & Red Sandalwood Soap, and Dragon’s Blood Soap.

Events:
This weekend at The Sojo we have a Friday night meditation with Heron to balance and clear the chakras. It will last from 6:00-7:00 for $10, and is followed by appointment times for Tarot Card Readings, $30 half hour.

Saturday from 12:00-2:00 Courtney is offering a Basic Herbalism Class for $25. Come learn the basic techniques of at-home herbalism. Learn how to make teas, extracts/tinctures, salves, and more, and leave with the knowledge to forge your own personal practice in herbalism. But you must call us or stop by to register in ADVANCE.

We’ll see you soon!
