Horse Stable Magick Workshop

Saturday, October 12, 2019
2:00-4:00 pm
$15
Please Register in Advance 252-758-7656

If you are blessed enough to have any time in a stable, you already know that horses have all kind of energy! It is possible to tap into that Horse Power while caring for horses, doing stable chores and by using items available in any barn. 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.

Water Witchcraft: Magic and Lore from the Celtic Tradition (Weiser 2019)

We’ll have copies of her book available for purchase at the event.

Workshop Description:

Water is sacred; it holds within it the magic of transformation and is needed to create and sustain life. This class will take an in-depth look at how our European ancestors held water as sacred. We will dive deep into the lore and magic of the Celts and their ancestors. We will discuss a variety of different types of water bodies from the Sea and Rivers to Bogs and Lakes. Why did the Celts honor these bodies of water? Why did they find them sacred? How did these beliefs influence the practice of their descendants? We will also discuss the spirits that dwell within the water such as Lake Ladies, Water Fae and Water Gods and Goddess associated with the sacred lands of the Celts.

Following the class, we will dive deep into the realms of Thermal Springs as we discuss Sulis Minerva the Solar Goddess of the Thermal Springs in Bath UK, known for Healing. We will then connect with her sacred waters in a hands-on healing ritual connecting with sacred water, and the Goddess Sulis.

Annwyn’s Bio:

Her focus is on Sacred Wells, Rivers and Lakes but she enjoys time at the Sea Shore as well.

The Sojourner’s Psychic Fair October 13th

The Sojourner’s Psychic Fair!

Saturday, October 13th, 2018 from 10 am – 8 pm

October kicks off our Witching season, when the veil between worlds thins, and we are better able to peer beyond the physical world to gain spiritual insights about the past, present and future. Divination could be considered an interactive conversation with your higher self, or that part of you that is interconnected to Spirit.

Join us at The Sojourner for a day filled with mysticism, insight, and fortunes told at  our Psychic Fair! All day long we will have readers offering insights with…

  • Tarot card readings with Heron Michelle
  • Tea leaf reading parties with Courtney Varnadoe
  • Astrology readings with Jupiter Melchizedek
  • Norse Rune readings
  • Palmistry, pendulum and more!

Walk-ins welcome, or call to book your private appointment at 252-758-7656 (SOJO)

Readings will start at $5 and go up from there depending on length of time and type of reading! Half hour sessions $40, Full hour sessions $70

Astrology sessions require that you know the exact time, place and date of your birth, and take a full hour.

While in the shop, check out our divination tools and books. We have a wide variety of Tarot and Oracle decks, sets of Runes, Pendulums, and many books to support your own psychic abilities. Staff available all day to answer questions on our merchandise. We’ll have sales specials!

All funds raised through this event benefit the operations of The Sojo Circle Coven of Modern Witchcraft based in Greenville, NC.  Our seeker classes begin new registrations in December 2018. We’d be happy to answer questions that day as well.

See you there!
