Do you carry Virtue? What do you stand for? What do you embody? Virtue was not simply a moral excellence, but a Platonic idea, a force, a divine power. Starting with Plato’s four Cardinal Virtues as they relate to the quadrivium, we shall explore the concept of Virtue, in excess, deficiency and balance, including Aristotle’s Twelve Virtues, Seven Heavenly Virtues, Eight Virtues of the Goddess, Nine Noble Virtues of the Norse and then Virtues of the Tree of Life. At the heart of tradition is virtue, and it must be carried by the Witch who walks the path. Explore the powers, spirits, and deities embodying virtue.
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.
$25 donation. Please register at least 24 hours in advance to attend the live class via Zoom. Confirmed registrations receive the Zoom link and PDF notes for the live class the day of the class. Register online at https://conta.cc/3grK9rZ

By breathing our sacred breath into our bodies, we stand in our truth. Bringing forward a clear mind and an open heart, we allow ourselves to heal. When we can see, feel, and uncover pieces of ourselves and hold them with compassion, we begin to weave our way through our own darkness and light without judgement. With the gentle act of offering ourselves the sacred, we call out to our lost, missing, and hidden pieces, welcoming them back into ourselves. Through this sacred act, we can continue our healing by integrating our entire being, allowing us to not only feel whole, but to be strong, confidant, secure, and loved. In this class, we will talk about how we can hold ourselves with compassion and acceptance while digging deep within ourselves without judgment. There is so much to explore in life when we give ourselves permission to feel and experience it. Together we will journey to release what holds us back, call out into our depths and discover the hidden mysteries within us as we welcome ourselves back into our heart. Recording will be available to registrants.
