The Sabbat of Autumn Equinox (Mabon) Workshop

Connect to the Sabbat of Autumn Equinox in creative and practical ways by making your very own corn dolly, a beautiful, magickal tool that represents the Goddess and can be used in this celebration as well as others throughout the wheel of the year. Decorate your corn dolly in preparation for your very own Autumn Equinox celebration and connect with the Goddess Ceres through meditation.

The eight Sabbats of a Witch represent the turning of the Wheel of the year and honour not only the current season but also the stages in the eternal life cycle of the Goddess and God. Mabon, or Autumn Equinox, is a Witches’ Sabbat where day and night are of equal length. The God nears his death and the Goddess prepares for his rebirth. The bounty of the harvest is celebrated in wine festivals, knowing that soon Winter will bring uncertainty. It is the second of the Harvest festivals and is associated with the reaping of corn, grains and other foods that can be harvested at this time.

About Your Facilitator:
Raylee Pandur has always had a fascination for Witchcraft and believed she was a witch from a very young age. As a child she spent much time searching books for mention of witches marks like palm crosses and specially placed skin blemishes. With her heightened intuition and feeling different to her friends she ventured in to the world of magick quietly and secretly as she was too fearful of openly embracing it. However, she is now fully immersed in the Mystical Dragon community and loves practising everything she has learnt during and beyond the Embracing Witchcraft Program. It is a blessing to now be able to participate in Mystical Dragon not just as a perpetual student but as a teacher too!

This workshop can be studied individually or as part of the Embracing Witchcraft Certificate Program.

Only $60p/person to attend and bookings are essential. To book your place contact Mystical Dragon on 03 9782 5091 or for more information or to make your booking online click this link: https://mysticaldragon.com.au/events/witchcraft/sabbats/mabon-sc

The Element of Fire Workshop

Be introduced to the element of Fire and meet two of the Elemental Beings connected to the fiery realms; the Phoenix and the Centaurs. Fire is the energy of transmutation, an energy of wholeness, of cosmic consciousness, passion, courage and will. FIRE! Crackling, snapping, popping. Heat and flame of red and gold, orange and yellow reaching high into the sky towards some unseen force. When working with Fire, the body temperature rises and sparks the ever hidden sensual and wild side of our being, igniting movement, action and inspiration. A strong emotional and spiritual connection with the elements can empower our everyday life and open us to a whole new dimension of beings that work beyond our physical world, but how do we embrace this energy?

We can also get to know the Elemental beings, the children of the Elements, who share the Earth with us and know each of the Elements intimately. In this workshop something of their mystical, magickal energy will touch your heart and if you are lucky, tickle you all over!! Elemental Beings are conscious energies connected to the elements. They are not physical in nature, though they do have direct effects on the physical world. These beings have certain qualities, natures, moods and magickal purpose and working with the Elemental Beings is the best way to become familiar with them and the Elements they are connected to. These beings are quite powerful and frequently work with those of us who are open to them.

Topics Covered In This Fire Element workshop:
**What are the elements?
**What are elemental beings?
**Embracing the element of Fire
**Fire associations (colours, astrological signs, plane, senses, herbs & trees, animals, etc)
**The Fire elemental altar
**Introducing an Elemental Being: Phoenix
**Introducing an Elemental Being: Centaur
**Practical exercises to connect with Phoenix and Centaur
**Decorate and charge your own element Fire candle, a magickal tool to help you connect to this element in future

Candle Magick Workshop

Discover how easy it is to perform this simple, yet powerful, form of magick. Look at the steps that can be used to create your own candle spells and perform a special candle spell with the group. Much of the candle magick performed today is done without the realisation of what is being done. Birthday cakes are covered in candles to celebrate another year of life, candles are lit in rooms because they “feel good” and create atmosphere, people light candles in memory of departed loved ones and the lights on the modern Christmas tree have replaced the candles that were used to signify rebirth.

Candle burning rituals call to us. They stir something deep within us and are a powerful form of magick in their own right. Burning candles is an old magickal art. It is quite simple to do and doesn’t require a lot of tools to perform.

Topics Covered:
**What is candle magick?
**The tools needed for performing candle magick
**The steps in successful candle magick
**Magick energies associated with different candle colours
**Magick energies associated with essential oils
**Introducing some Goddesses and what they can help with
**Things to consider before you cast a spell
**The right timing of your spells
**How to dress your altar to add energy to your spells
**Perform a spell together as a group
**Some candle magick spells to try at home

This workshop can be studied individually or as part of the Embracing Witchcraft Certificate Program.

Minoan Snake Goddess Workshop with Dr Caroline Tully

23 February 2019
11-1.30pm
with Dr Caroline Tully

The Great Goddess was the original, and only, deity of humankind from the dawn of time up until around 3000 BCE, when Goddess-oriented cultures were conquered by patriarchal, warlike worshippers of a sky god. Late Bronze Age Minoan Crete (1750–1490 BCE) is considered to be the Goddess culture’s final flowering. According to Goddess History, Crete exhibits the last gasp of the feminine values associated with Goddess culture before it was wiped out by warlike, patriarchal Mycenaean Greeks. Before this time Minoan Crete was peaceful, worshipped the Great Goddess and her Dying and Rising Consort (who was also her son), and women and nature were respected.

Join Dr Caroline Tully in a workshop on ancient Minoan religion, focussing on the Snake Goddess. On the island of Crete the snake appears in the worship of the female deity more repeatedly than anywhere else in the Mediterranean. Ancient artifacts have been unearthed that portray the Goddess or Her priestesses holding snakes in their hands or with them coiled about their bodies, revealing that they were an integral part of the religious rituals.

Through discussion and practical ritual, contemporary approaches to Minoan religion will be revealed.

Caroline has a background in various traditions of witchcraft and magic/k and is an academic who studies ancient Mediterranean Pagan religions and their manifestation in the modern world.
