Class Description

Study the philosophy and wisdom of the modern pagan world. Use meditation, ritual and psychic ability to integrate the sacred, living magick into your daily life. Bring a deep sense of self -awareness, healing and transformation. Through shamanic initiation, face your fears and shadows. Develop leadership, healing, teaching and counseling skills.
