In 2018, all Sage Goddess courses will explore “A World of Magic” by taking students through the history of global civilizations and metacultures. Magic is not new, or even in its infancy – it’s as old as time. We all have deep curiosity about the past, and relatively little knowledge about the customs, rituals, and daily practices of our ancestors. The gems, herbs, and oils we work with today were once in their hands, too, and formed deep within and across the Earth as these civilizations rose and fell. Over time, much has been lost – but we can retrieve it and explore it together. Each month we will focus on one civilization, and the course content will be inflected by subject area across the three Sage Goddess classes: In Gem Wise, students will learn about the gemstones and minerals of the focus civilization; in AroMagic, students will learn about the herbs and essential oils of the focus civilization, and in Magical Sabbatical students will learn about the magical and ritual practices of the focus civilization. Holistic Healers who are enrolled in all three classes will gain a wealth of knowledge about the history and mystery of magic. Our focus will span from ancient times to the common era. Together, we will tap into the power of these places and harness it together to infuse our modern practice with the magic of all time.
Have you ever wondered about the differences between Persian turquoise from the ancient Middle Eastern empire and the Turquoise mined in the United States today? Have you been curious about the gemstones buried with ancient Egyptian queens and pharaohs, or those that adorned the breastplates and armor of ancient soldiers? Students in Gem Wise can look forward to a survey of minerals and gems by country and civilization. For example, when we study the rise of the Persian empire, we will discuss that country’s production of the finest quality Turquoise in the world; or when we study ancient Rome, we will explore their use of Topaz in battle to safeguard Republic soldiers. We will also explore the gemstones native to the continent and country where each civilization formed as well as sacred land formations and petroglyphs.
