Ritual Magic Workshops

Ritual and ceremony have played an important part in the spiritualritual magic workshops quest of humanity ever since the days of Atlantis. The esoteric orders use magical ritual as a tool for spiritual and clairvoyant development, for seeking wisdom from the Inner-Level Teachers, and to help and heal. Ritual can be many different things and can take many forms, but whether a simple spell, a solemn High Mass, a Wiccan circle working, or the elaborate temple work of the initiated and contacted magician, the same fundamental laws apply to all forms of ritual.

This three-part workshop series is open to anyone who is interested in learning about this ancient Art. It consists of three week-end workshops. The same group of people goes through the entire series as a unit. The three week-ends, spaced about six months apart, build on each other, each workshop taking the work of the previous one to a higher level. For this reason, they must be taken in sequence. Each week-end contains many practical exercises, and there is always a larger ritual where the participants are able to make use of what they have learnt.

Below is an overview of each part of the series, together with a list of locations where they are given. If nothing else is stated, they are non-residential. To keep the costs of non-residential workshops down, meals are usually not provided, but there are usually some light refreshments available (such as tea, coffee, biscuits, etc), and venues are always close to restaurants and hotels. Residential workshops have meals and accommodation included.

You will need a simple robe for the ritual. Also bring some writing materials.
