WHAT IS REIKI?
Reiki (pronounced ‘ray-key’) comes to us from Dr. Mikao Usui (Usui Sensei) of Japan. It is a natural system of stress reduction and relaxation that promotes healing. The name Reiki is made up of two Japanese words: REI meaning ‘universal or higher power’ and KI meaning ‘life force energy’. It is aptly named as the practitioner acts as a conduit for the Reiki energy which is guided by a higher power; because of this ANYONE can learn Reiki. You do not need to study for years or fast on a mountain top. The connection to Reiki is passed from Teacher to Student in what is known as an attunement.

ABOUT THE SERIES
I have been teaching Reiki for 15 years and I am so excited to be presenting Reiki I as a 6-week series. Over the course of the series, we will learn some energy work basics (including an overview of the human energy system and chakras), what Reiki is, how it works, and how to use it. We will examine the origins of Reiki with a focus on key individuals and their contributions to this wonderful system of healing.

At the end of this series, you will be able to confidently use the techniques presented to improve the health and quality of life for yourself, your loved ones, and perhaps even start your own Reiki business (if so desired).

WEEK 3: Dr. Chujiro Hayashi

WEEK 4: Hawayo Takata
 
WEEK 5: William Rand / ICRT

WEEK 6: Quick Techniques / Ethics / Reiki as a Business

Exploring the Ced Tarot with Griffin

This is a 9-week series delving primarily into the Ced Tarot, however as some of the symbolic imagery and concepts in the Ced Tarot relate to classical pre Rider Waite Tarot, there will be some delving into the mysteries presented in early Tarot Decks. You may find insight into the general Tarot legacy through this series.

The Rider Waite deck, as other decks coming from the Golden Dawn source, aligned their Tarots with the Kabalistic Tree of Life as a cosmological graph, bringing insight and order to those decks. The Tarot is, IMO, always depicts some expression of spiritually based cosmic order. In this same manner, the Ced Tarot is also aligned with the cosmology graph that expresses the cosmic order of the Ced Tradition, being one of many lines of British Traditional Witchcraft. Like many Traditional Witchcraft lines, our Cosmology is plotted upon what we call the Compass, which is our working construct. The Compass holds myriad layers of keys into Lore and Practice which can be revealed through working with the Ced Tarot.

I have had a long association to Tarot. I have also over 40 years as an Initiate of Traditional Witchcraft. For many years I have been told I should publish some of our Tradition insights and practices, and when wrestling with this, it dawned upon me that the tarot may be a wonderful working tool to delve into the complex myriad of subjects we hold within our Tradition. But for us to align our Tradition to the Tarot, we would have to find a graphic expression of a cosmology that would serve both the Witch Stream of my Tradition and that of the Classical pre Rider Waite Tarot.

What emerged from this approach was insightful not only with regards to the legacy of the Ced Tradition, but also cracked open a fresh new perspective on Tarot itself! Since the inception of the Ced Tarot more than two decades back, I have found the Ced Tarot to be a very present and communicative spirit that has become one of my primary gnostic teachers into the occult.

I know I have promised a book for many years now. A small basic pamphlet type book is done and is presently being worked through a final edit. This book will be released in PDF form for free to assist all those who have purchased the deck. More written material has been done but there is quite a bit of editing yet to do. I hope perhaps this Series may assist in the Edit process.

Note*This is not a Wiccan Based Witchcraft system; we do not work an Elemental based Magical system nor do we work with Elemental Golden Dawn Quarters concepts. This is an Airts based Deck, working the Major Arcana around a central crossroads Axis Mundi, with the primary directional qualities of Earth and the corresponding draconian Airts qualities associated with those directions. The Minor Arcana is expressing the decans of the Stellar houses and the Court Cards express the Lunar phases. This deck numbering 81 cards works with the interactive dance between three revolving compasses. Once this deck’s system is understood, it truly opens an endless vista of opportunities way beyond simple divination!

There is insight and fruit to be had for people of all levels in this series. For people who are interested in Tarot as well as Witches interested in the mechanics of the Traditional Witchcraft Compass!
It has been years since I did a series on this Deck, and I do not know when I may do another. So this series may get filled fast. An open mind to exploration into an alternative approach to the Tarot is required. A sense of humour is also required! We take our work seriously but not ourselves. Our Spirituality, what some call the Olde Religion, is a path of laughter! Yes we do cackle!

This class is seldom offered and we do have class size limitations, so it is advisable to reserve a space for this series before the class fills up! Call the Green Man at 818-985-2010. Reservations will be taken on a first come, first served basis.

Note* We start each week at 7.30pm with open general discussion giving the first half hour so people running from work may make it to the class proper, which starts at 8.00pm.

$28; $3 discount for cash, per class
$183 or $180 cash for series if paid in full by first class
(a $5 per class savings when paid in full; it brings the price to $20 per class)

 

Rune Magic and Divination

The runes are so much more than just a system for divination; it’s an ancient language and it carries a deep well of knowledge and insight. In this series, we will explore both the inner language and the magic the runes can provide. I have been working with runes since I started my magical journey and they have guided me through it all. I use them everyday in my magical practice whether it’s dressing a candle, making a mojo bag, or simply calling the energy of a particular rune from within me out into a space in order to make a shift in the energy. Runes as a divination system is so rich with insight. Some people don’t understand them because they are simple lines, but I see the language. I feel the spirit of each rune speak to me and I want to help others feel it too. It’s not a scary thing and I can teach you how to use them both in magic and in divination. Join me on this series and let’s explore the wisdom given to us from All Father Odin!

$28 per class; $3 discount if paid in cash. If series is paid in full in advance, $123 credit or $120 cash.

Psychic Circle with Melissa

Melissa’s Psychic Circle

Have you ever known what someone was going to say before they say it? Have you ever had prophetic dreams? Do you think you might be psychic? Or do you wish you were?

Many psychics believe that meeting regularly with a group of likeminded souls can help you to enhance your abilities, or even awaken dormant gifts, by providing you a safe haven to stretch and test yourself, and build your confidence through community.

On March 14th at 8pm our Psychic Circle will meet @thegreenmanstore. After cleansing the space and opening the circle, we will discuss how to use and calibrate pendulums. Then I’ll lead you in a guided meditation to raise your vibrations and prepare you for a group psychic development exercise that everyone will participate in. We will end with everyone pairing off to practice giving each other readings. Afterwards, we can discuss what we’ve learned, ask questions, and close the circle.

My hope is to not only help us gain insight into our gifts, but also enrich our lives, and provide budding psychics a community where we can help each other learn and grow.
