First 10 Weeks: Direct Handling of Air, Fire, Water, and Earth
The first section of this course deals with the four basic elements, their correspondences, characteristics and interactions. We will learn techniques for handling these energies directly, and adjusting our own and other people’s energetic balances. We will also learn methods for healing, message-sending, divination and self-protection..

Second 10 Weeks: Divination & Using Firebowl, Wand, Athame, Chalice and Plate
The second section deals with basic tools for magical practice, including the firebowl, wand, athame, chalice and plate. We will learn to use each of these tools for psychic house-cleaning, shielding, banishments, healing and message-sending. As things are not always what they appear to be, we will also study numerous forms of divination, which is the obtaining of information not readily available to our five senses, so we can safely plan spells, prayers and rituals. The forms of divination we will study in this section include energy-bowl, chalice, fire-bowl and pendulum.

Third 10 Weeks: Sonics, Tarot and Spellwork
The final section of this course deals with sonics, tarot and spellwork, including prayers and chants. With sonics, we learn to use voices of command and words of power. The tarot portion of the course include the following forms of reading: Celtic Cross, 12 card, progressed and expanded readings, and multiple signifiers. All forms include the use of second cards. Finally, this section teaches the mechanics and principles of spells and prayers for healing, protection, changing conditions and manifesting.
