In this year-long class, go deeper into the soul and spirit world through the Turning of the Wheel of the Year. Examine specific mystical teachings involving the approach towards the Wheel found in the Temple of Witchcraft, yet adaptable and inspiring for your own personal practice and traditions. Learn more about the annual journey of the Goddess and God of the Wheel as they shift their forms from Mother and Child to Lovers, Monarchs, Sacrifice and Mourner and Hidden Ones. Work with some of the Sabbatic deities most often associated with the Holidays – Brid, Ostara, Bel, Lugh, Mabon, Modron, Morrighan and Dagda.

Survey how modern Neo-Pagan groups reclaim and modernize old lore, while delving into traditional  folk customs. By Root, Stem, Leaf, Bud, Blossom, Flower, Fruit and Seed, rising from the ever present stillness of the Darkness and fluctuating Light, work with the sacred mysteries of the Earth Keepers. Learn the blessings of regeneration and rest, awakening and planning, work and play, reaping and release. Learn the spiritual ministerial codes associated with each holiday.

Expand your understanding of the two fold God, as Oak and Holly King, invoking the eightfold division of the four horned gods and the four agricultural gods. Work with the astrological patterns beneath the Wheel, and study ways how to celebrate alone or in groups through ritual, vision working, song, dance, season food and lore. Make potions and incense blends to help you celebrate and attune to the energies.

Explore the Straight Road of the sacred priest Kings and Queens from the Three Rays, responsible for the balance between the Heavens, Earth and Underworld, mediating the energies as the wheel turns. Hold the center and walk the spiral path as we turn the seasons to grow in power, love and wisdom. Become one with the lineage of the Earth Keeper ancestors.
