Spinning Gold ~ Magic and Storytelling

We all have magic. It is present in our songs and our stories, in our art and our philosophies; it is present in our very breath and bone.

Magic is taught through stories; and it is part of a greater story, a family of practices and ways of living that I call the Sacred Arts.

Knowing that is true has very little to do with belief and everything to do with being ready… to learn, to commit to life-changing work, to remember what you have always know.

Star Magic Course and Ongoing Star Club

When you look up at the stars what you do see?

Possibility? Meaning? Magic?

I know that they are there waiting for you and I hope you know it too.

People love astrology.

Knowing a little bit about our stars and planets gives us insight into our own personal quirks, strengths, natural talents, and areas of challenge.

But often after we have our natal charts cast and analyzed or after a well-meaning friend has told us what our sun sign is really about, we are left with the question…now what?

Where do I go from here?

Astrology like any sacred art, can give us a great deal of really interesting and useful information.

But if we don’t know how to implement that information, how to execute the ideas we encounter, what good does it do us? The fix is simple: astrology, like most sacred arts, was never meant to stand alone.

Specifically, astrology is happiest and fullest in conversation with magic, ritual, and ceremony.

In Star Magic you will learn:

  • how to read your natal chart
  • what the meanings of the planets and zodiac signs really are about
  • which ingredients in your kitchen cupboard and spice cabinet can be worked with to honor planetary energies
  • how to magically deal with retrogrades, eclipses, squares, oppositions, conjunctions, transits, and other celestial events so that doors open and roads are made clear.

A Fixed Star to Guide You – what does the soulful seeker do when life is full of dramatic twists and turns? What kind of magic can assist us in stabilizing ourselves and rising above the 24 hour news cycle and daily dramas? That is the topic we explore in this one session class as we look at, and learn to work with, the many faces of Fortune.

The Unruined Castle – how does the soulful seeker relate to the physical body and the gifts and limitations that go along with it? What is the role of the physical body in magic, spiritual practice, and life? What are we to make of the physical challenges we experience? And how can we see our body as the Holy Helper that it is? In this one session class we examine the relationship between the Sacred Arts and the Sacred Body through ritual, magic, and meditation.

20 Question Tarot

There are hundreds of books, guides, and websites dedicated to teaching us how to read tarot. Many of these resources are useful and really quite good. And yet, tarot continues to be a sacred art that befuddles and confuses at least as much as it simplifies and clarifies. Something is wrong with that picture.

Moreover, too many readers from beginners to professionals have what I think of as the “boilerplate” reading, meaning if you have heard it once, you have heard it one hundred times.

Let’s not do that anymore.

In this open enrollment e-course you will receive deep teachings on each of the 78 tarot cards and 20 questions that will help you develop a much deeper understanding of the card as well as a more accurate reading style.

Blessing Ways

It is time for reverence to become more radical, in the deepest and truest sense, it is time for us to go down to the roots of what we hold most sacred.

It is time for us to collectively and individually bring all that is healing, whole-making, and holy into our daily lives and practices. It is time to ally ourselves with the great freedoms and devotions that the sacred art of prayer presents.

It is time for blessing ways.

Blessing Ways is a gift self-study class.

You’ll receive an mp3 of our class call, and the companion book in PDF.
