Visionary Scrying with Crystal Balls
Thursday 1pm ~ Water Tent ~ Jason Newcomb

Visionary Scrying with Crystal Balls-Jason will share his three phase strategy for rapidly becoming a visionary with crystals and other scrying devices. He will be bringing a number of crystals but if you have one you should bring it to class because we will be doing a good bit of gazing and it is good to connect with your own crystals. Jason will have a limited number of scrying crystals available for purchase should you become attached to your loaner shewstone.

What’s So Great About the Great Rite?
Thursday 3pm ~ Air Tent ~ Sylph's Breeze ~ Jason Mankey

What’s So Great About the Great Rite? Ask your average Witch about the great rite and they’ll probably respond with something about cups and athames or sex magick. But the great rite is about more than sexual coupling or half-hearted mini-rites before cakes and ale-the great rite is about the union of powerful forces, and most importantly, it’s for EVERYBODY. From the great rite in truth and in token, this is a workshop about sex in the ancient world, wine, magick, and more! It’s all about what’s so great about one of Wicca’s most misunderstood and divisive rites.

SATURDAY

Tarot Words and Interpretations
Saturday 10:30am ~ Spirit Tent ~ Christiana Gaudet

If a tarot card can mean many different things, how do we know how to interpret the cards in a specific reading? Do we have to memorize card meanings? What if the classic card meaning doesn’t fit in the context of the question?

Whether you are a beginner or advanced tarot reader, chances are you’ve struggled with these questions, and others, as you strive to makes sense of, and find wisdom in, your tarot cards. In this workshop, you will learn some easy-yet-insightful systems for interpreting any combination of cards in any situation. More importantly, you’ll learn to find the way your own intuition and spiritual guidance can lead you to find truth in every tarot reading. Bring a tarot deck or buy or borrow one at the workshop.
