Thursday, June 25th -- Spellcrafting
with Lyndsey Harrington
Whether you’re a budding witch, or simply feeling curious, it can be difficult to know where and how to begin deepening your relationship to the realm of magic. This introductory workshop will walk you through the ins and outs of one the most foundational cosmic arts, the art of spell-crafting, in a way that's friendly and approachable, so that you feel more confident taking the next step on your journey as a magical practitioner.
What is a spell?
A spell can be defined as a set of ritualized actions and/or prayers to call upon the divine or cosmic energies for help with something in your life. Spell-crafting can be a powerful tool for things like manifestation, healing for the mind/body/spirit, finding inner clarity, connecting to guides, releasing unwanted attachments, just to name a few. To craft a spell is to be reminded of our harmony with nature; to trust in the notion that our thoughts, words, and actions ripple into the world around us. When we craft a spell we are honoring that connection, and choosing, with care, the intention we would like the universe to hear.
This workshop will cover both the practical and theoretical aspects of spellcrafting in the Modern Wiccan style, including, but not limited to:
how spells work
incantations + mantras
creating a spell vs following a spell
the functions of an altar
aligning your spell with the stars
calling in guides and deities
solitary vs group spells
what to do when your spell isn’t working
Please bring your presence, your questions or stories, and any sacred objects you would like to lend to our communal altar.
*This workshop is a space solely for craft of a positive, mindful, and heart-centered nature, with respect for the free will and autonomy of all living beings. If you have questions about this or anything else before the workshop, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
