Connecting to the Soul’s Wisdom with Hypnosis • Friday, 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm • Presented by Brenda Titus. You hold inside of you all of the answers that you need to live a happy, successful life, the life that you were born to live. During this workshop with a magically minded professional hypnotherapist, you will learn about hypnosis and how it can help you identify and overcome subconscious obstacles and blocks so that you can live an even more successful, happy and productive life.
The Sacrament of Hecate Triodia • Friday 9:00 pm – 10:30 pm • Temple founder Adam Sartwell will be a celebrant in this ritual, presented by Black Rose Witchcraft. Reach into the cauldron of Hecate and take the key to your fate. Will you choose to lock a door to something forever or will you unlock a door to new and greener pastures? Join the Black Rose Coven down at the crossroads as we dance with our brooms once more and summon Hecate Triodia, Queen of Crossroads.
Seeking the Seer’s Vision • Saturday 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm • Presented by Christopher Penczak, Temple founder and Sagittarius lead minister. Esoteric tradition often teaches there is a “plan” or “vision” unfolding for the world, and the role of magickal adepts is to help manifest that vision in freedom and love for all. Various seers, bards, prophets, psychics, oracles and artists experience and transmits parts of the vision, adding to the unfolding tapestry to inspire action. We look to the ancient oracles and vision holders from the Sybils and Pythia to Merlin the Prophet. In this vision working, we seek our own vision of the Great Work to share. From the sacred center, we seek our role in a vision of space and time.
The Four Faces of the Horned God • Sunday, 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm • Presented by Christopher Penczak, Temple founder and Sagittarius lead minister. Come learn about the Horned God of the Witches, Master of the Threshold and Keeper of the Gate. We’ll explore his four form and associations with the turning of the Wheel of the Year’s Solar Holidays. He manifests as the Goat Horned God, the Ram Horned God, the Bull Horned God and the Stag Horned God. There is a Horned One behind all of these forms. We’ll look to figures such as Pan, Amun-Ra, Dionysus and Cernunnos and and culminate in a vision working ritual to develop your own relationship with the Four Faces of the Horned God.
Reiki for Change • Monday 9:00 am – 10:30 am • Presented by Adam Sartwell, Temple founder and Virgo lead minister. Reiki is a powerful force for healing in our lives. It can help us heal ourselves and the world. Anyone who is attuned to Reiki can direct this energy toward changing situations for the better. In this workshop you will learn methods to use Reiki to heal situations, people, the world and ourselves.
