The Mabinogion (June 10th)
This workshop covers the magical aspects of the great corpus of Welsh myth known as the Mabinogion. These wonderful stories, still little known amongst English speakers are a treasure house of magic and the deities and spirits of our land. After an introduction to the Mabinogion and its history we will focus on the stories of Gwydion, Arianrhod and Lleu Llaw Gyffes and Mabon ap Modron (Cilwch ac Olwen) and delve into their magical aspects. The workshop will also include practical exercises and meditations. It will also dispel some common misconceptions about “Celtic” mythology. The workshop leader is a Welsh speaker who grew up with these stories. Please bring a notebook and something to write with.
Qabalah (September 16th)
An introduction to the esoertic system at the heart of the Western Mystery Traditions. Levannah Morgan will introduce you to the Qabalah, often considered difficult to learn but actually a wonderfully poetic and visual magical system which weaves together the deities, planets, tarot, colour, number and language (and many other things) into one harmonious vision of a magical universe. No previous knowledge of Qabalah is required. Extensive teaching materials will be provided and the day will include practical exercises and meditations. Please bring a notebook or sketchbook and something to write on or draw with.
N.C. Qabalah has nothing to do with the American cult of Kabbalah.
