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 Magical Sabbatical students will learn about the magical and ritual practices of the focus civilization; in AroMagic, students will learn about the herbs and essential oils of the focus civilization; and in Gem Wise, students will learn about the gemstones and minerals 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.
Join me as we trace the ancient origins of modern holidays and explore related practices from different traditions, pantheons, and lineages. In 2018, Sabbatical students will learn about ritual practices and magical traditions from each of the world civilizations we study, including rituals for birth, death, and significant life events as documented in ancient texts, glyphs, and oral traditions. Students in Magical Sabbatical in 2018 can look forward to a survey of rituals and traditions by country and civilization. For example, when we study the Mesopotamian civilizations we will learn about the rituals of Sumer and the first cities in the world: Eridu, Uruk, Ur, Larsa and Kish. And when we explore ancient Egypt, we will uncover the mysteries of the diurnal and nocturnal rituals of sacred temples and tombs.
Magical Sabbatical is my continuing women’s course on magic and ritual, ideal for beginners but also for advanced practitioners who desire to take their metaphysical work deeper. Our monthly class will be a combination of meditation, discussion, and application of the month’s theme. There are no prerequisites for this class. The monthly membership fee is $20.
