In the old magic traditions and stories of long lost witches, spells were created and craft was learned. It was rare for a practitioner to gather the spells of others, and truly powerful magic workers built their own formulas.
In this course, Kate Belew and Minta Karlsson will take you down a path of self discovery. What are your stories? Where does your river of creativity emerge from? Students will be encouraged to explore, ask questions, take risks, and embrace their inner witch. In addition, special focus will be paid towards spellwork that deepens one's connection to an ancestral practice and personal magic - building an altar, honoring those who came before, and calling in support, protection and abundance all by way of writing.
On alternating weeks Kate will lead the group in spellwork writing exercises to begin working the well of creativity. Minta will lead the class through simple practical magic, bringing a focus towards grounding creative work and building a healthy foundation. Both teachers will discuss and expand on topics of spellwork, ancestral magic, altar building, story building and drawing power from words.
All levels are welcome. There will be some basic knowledge shared as well as information drawn from both of the teacher’s professional practices.
