Join Temple High Priestess Erica Baron for an introduction to the Greek god Hermes:
Hermes is a god of so many things - communication, technology, travel, thieves, liars, herds, some methods of prophecy. He is funny and profound, helpful but also confounding, and just basically impossible to pin down. Nevertheless, I will try to tell you some of his stories, and some ways of approaching a relationship with him.
One Mind. One Thing. One World. One Sorcerer. One Land. Many Gods. Many Spirits. Many People. Many places. Explore the paradox of the one and the many on the mystical path of the Witch. Look into our ancient past. Explore topics such as unity consciousness in the context of Christ, Buddha, and Merlin. Look to the teachings of Ma’at Magick and the future of N’Aton. Seek our future consciousness. Understand how energies, currents, ideas, emotions and parasites can move though the one and the many, and the use of magick and initiation to inoculate the collective against harm by liberating the individual.
Originally born out of a support for our ministerial members, in these times we have moved to an online format and made dark moon classes open to the public to partake in the mysteries. Designed to be more experimental and intermediate, they are not for new practitioners, but for those with an understanding of occult paradigms, experience in visionary journey, and clear entity contact.
Please register at least 24 hours in advance to attend the live class via Zoom. Register online at: https://conta.cc/3uxwtA8

Reiki is a gentle, hands-on healing technique that helps ease one's stresses while promoting well-being and healing. As Reiki Practitioners we will come together in community and sacred space each month to discuss a different Reiki topic, receive hands-on healing, and send healing out to the Temple Healing List.
During this month’s Reiki Share, we will explore the importance of breath work both inside and outside of a healing session. We can use our breath for clearing or empowering ourselves and everything in between.
This is open to all levels of Reiki Practitioners and Healers. Sliding-scale donation of $10 to $15. Register online at: https://conta.cc/3yQMWmn
Gaia – bounteous Mother who sustains all life on Earth. As witches and pagans, we have many rites that pay homage to the earth and the cycles of nature, but what does it mean to truly hold the earth sacred? It can be difficult to remain consciously aware of our impact on the planet, rushing through our daily lives. Earth stewardship is a sacred path, which seeks to protect and heal Gaia through practical choices and spiritual work. In this workshop, we’ll explore the practice of earth stewardship within the context of modern society and the Temple tradition. Strengthen your connection to Gaia by building a regular practice of earth attunement. Discover ways to increase the ecological sustainability of your lifestyle. Learn about Taurus Ministry’s work with the Temple land and the spirits most closely connected to it. Finally, bring it all together in a ritual to honor Gaia, Herself. The class will not be recorded at the request of the presenter.
