Did you know that the ancient Celtic festival of “Samhain” (pronounced ‘sow-oon’) is the origin of our modern day All Hallows Eve or Halloween?
Traditionally celebrated around the first of November, our ancestors knew this was a time when the “veils between the worlds” are thinnest and all manner of spirits, ghosts and goblins can pass easily from the world beyond into ours. It is also a time for working magic and casting spells.
To do a little of your own spellcasting (white magick only please!) and intention setting, join me in making your own ‘Witches Ladder’, an ancient form of Celtic folk magic and an expressive crafting technique that will help set your hopes and dreams in motion for the coming year.
Wool, ribbon, charms, natural items and found objects as well as twigs, berries and other organic bits and pieces gathered from local forests will be used to make your “ladder”. This is a wonderful way to “cast” intentions for the year ahead as you weave thoughts, prayers and spells into your magical creation.
The session will be rounded out with a short, guided meditation and blessing of your magical creation. Your finished “ladder” can be hung indoors or outdoors to help protect your home and send its messages to the spirit world.
All materials supplied although if you have a small token or charm that is meaningful to you that you wish to incorporate into your ladder somehow you are encouraged to bring it along.
PRE-REGISTRATION WITH PAYMENT IN FULL IS REQUIRED.
** Remember to indicate in the “NOTES” section at checkout if you prefer an morning or afternoon session, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your preference. **
