About the Event

This is being taught by the amazingly magickal Nikki Murphy!

 Intro to Witchcraft (6 part class)

 In this 6 part class we are exploring some basics of Witchcraft. This class won’t teach you any specific spells or procedures but will instead help give you some resources to make you a more confident witch. We are going over alters and sacred spaces, pulling energies from all of the elements and using that in spells, your sacred spaces and your daily self-care. We will discuss some strategies to find a spell for your individual need or to write one, how to gather supplies, how to time a spell, and what to do if it seems the spell isn’t working. Next we will talk about keeping a book of shadows and the importance of documenting your spiritual journey and all the ways you can do that; from ceremonially keeping a journal of handmade paper you anoint before every single writing session to having a voice memo on your cellphone where you recall your dreams. Then, we will dive into learning and accepting what magick is natural to you and how to play on your personal strengths and have a community of people with different specialties to help you in your practice. Lastly, we will talk about my favorite part of being a witch- making some magick in every single day. Stir some intention into your coffee, heal your own body in the bathtub, and know you’re creating a sacred space when you sweep the floor. We are all individually called to this craft, and all of the ways we need to practice will be a little bit different; through this class I hope to expose you to what I know works for the witches I know and to help give you some ideas and confidence in your own craft so you can find out what works for you.

Intro to Witchcraft Part Four: Book of Shadows In the fourth part of our Intro to Witchcraft course we are looking at documenting our spiritual journey. Here we will define a book of shadows and talk about some of the ways I have seen them exist. We will talk about how every witch should have some kind of a record of her practice and why. Outside of a Book of Shadows we will talk about some other helpful forms of documentations for many witches. We will discuss the benefits of keeping spell cards like recipe cards, dream journaling, keeping a tarot journal, keeping a book of mirrors, keeping a log of notes about whatever you’re currently studying, and keeping a gratitude list. Keeping an old fashioned “this is what happened today” journal even can be a huge part of our spiritual journey. We will look at some ways to make time for good magickal record keeping and some creative ways to do so in our day and age.
