1st Year Healing Craft Circle - 2019
Intuitive & Spiritual Development through Traditional Magic, the Ceremony of Elemental Magic
This circle is a dedicated safer space which serves to center those made most vulnerable by colonial, cis-centric, hetero-normative, white supremacy. If you are interested in this course work please understand that we will be actively de-centering, dismantling, and divesting those systems from our altars and our magic through our work together. If you benefit from these systems, either through embodiment or proximity, you are welcome to attend this circle and I ask that you commit to examining the ways we consciously and unconsciously perpetuate these systems in our daily lives. To support this process, The Cunning Crow Teaching Temple will also be hosting a series of circles intended to serve as resources for navigating internalized oppression and the ritual dismantling of these systems from our individual and community altars.
About me and my approach. I am a gender non-binary, trans femme, chronically ill witch living in colonized Duwamish & Coast Salish territory. I identify as a white person of Slavic & Polish ancestry and am also of Romani descent. I was born on occupied Tequesta, Ais, and Jeaga land in what is now called Florida. As someone who was raised outside of my culture due to colonialism, genocide, and white supremacy and who benefits from white privilege, my work focuses on magic as service, reparation, and radical resistance. What this means is actively evolving with each circle I teach. In essence it's important to note that I teach from a perspective that seeks to actively examine and account for my whiteness, decolonize my mind and magic, and center a gender non-binary cosmology of Witch.
It's also important to acknowledge that we will effort to dismantle gender essentialism and biological reductionism from our altars through this work as well. As such you will not discover, reclaim, or balance your divine feminine or masculine in this circle. Rather, this circle will empower you to discover, nurture, and harmonize your relationship with your Divinity. This is deeply enriching and powerful work... it is also necessary and challenging work. Please reach out if you are unsure what this all may mean.
Over the course of this year we will develop and deepen in a personal relationship with The Healing Craft. Each class we will learn to apply these relationships to intuitive development and divination techniques, psychic protection, inducing trance, cultivating the Witches' Gaze, faring forth, hands on healing, energy clearing, story telling, ritual, and daily personal practices. Throughout this year we will explore your individual cosmology and relationship to Source within the context of community. I encourage you to take what you learn in class and unravel it, question it, pull it apart and weave it into a cosmology that most resembles your own personal walk.
This circle will provide opportunities for you to learn about:
1. Protection, Shielding & Personal Empowerment:
2. Accessing the Spirit Worlds & Divination:
3. Your Personal Relationship with Nature and the Elements:
