If you are local to Western Maryland, I invite you to join me at an upcoming class, workshop or seminar. Events are listed in calendar order.  All events are open to the public unless otherwise noted.

 

First and Third Thursdays
Blackfeather Mystery School

The Blackfeather Mystery School is a full-spectrum training in Empowered Witchcraft developed by mystic witch Irene Glasse and shaman Jake Hackney. The 2021 series is the Crow level, an intermediate training. Prerequisites include experience journeying and cultivating spirit allies, a good understanding of the fundamentals of witchcraft, and a willingness to practice class content outside the classroom.

Tuesdays and Thursdays
Yoga for Advancing Beginners

Support your mind, body and spirit with yoga. One of the best ways we can stay resilient and healthy is to exercise and cultivate mindfulness. These donation classes with E-RYT 200 Irene Glasse are drop-in friendly and open to everyone. Email fcuups(at)gmail(dot)com for the Zoom link.  Irene teaches Yoga for Advancing Beginners on Tuesdays and Fridays at 10 AM ET. An Advancing Beginners class is most accessible to people who have some basic familiarity with yoga and are able to comfortably take low lunge (lunge with one foot forward and the back knee touching the mat), tabletop, warrior two and other foundational yoga poses. Previous classes can be viewed here.

The Spirits of Home
At Fertile Ground Gathering Online

Connection isn’t only found in the State Parks and wild places. Where you live right now, land spirits, house spirits, genius loci, and more are all around you. Learn about these different Beings and the ways building a cocreative relationship with them can enrich and strengthen your magickal and spiritual practices.

May 26th – 31st
The Power of Presence: Holding Space, Deep Listening, and Healing Magick for a New Era
At EarthSpirit’s Rites of Spring 43 Online

As we begin to uncurl from a year of physical isolation, new communication challenges are on the horizon. Current statistics indicate that over the course of the pandemic, one in five people lost someone close to them. Many of us will find gatherings overwhelming for some time to come. Our culture and community is in deep need of healing. The good news is that there are simple, useful tools to support our families, friends, and greater community. Learn the foundations of safe, sacred communication, the magick of active listening, and new ways to hold space for those who need it. Two session intensive.

Saturday, June 19th, 3 PM
Apotropaics, Go-Bags, and What To Keep in the Cabinet
At Free Spirit Gathering Online

When things go sideways, they tend to so without warning. Maintaining a collection of hex-deflecting tools and knowing how and when to use them helps keep us safe. Join Irene Glasse for a workshop on and discussion of useful apotropaics for your magickal cabinet as well as what to carry in a metaphysical go-bag. Note: Although this workshop welcomes people under the age of 18, Irene swears like the former Marine she is, especially when she’s excited about a topic. And she loves hex-breaking.
