The Work of the Mighty Dead

Ancestral Veneration, Communion, and Healing in the Witch Soul

Registration for this class is now closed.

In this 13-month class, we will explore the many ways to encounter and partner with our named and faceless ancestors of Witch Blood while discussing the abstract concept of the Witch Soul to which all Witches are connected.  This class will cover opening the gates to deeper workings with the Mighty Dead though such things as the poison garden, sigils, spell craft, and meditation.  We will discuss the Witch Soul in the context of it being bound by many years of persecution and how we can help to release its power and heal it and all those connected to it.

This class is open to those beginning to work with the Mighty Dead to those who are already experienced, with the understanding that a basic knowledge of meditation and ritual are needed and will not be covered.  Temple of Witchcraft Mystery School students who have graduated Witchcraft II and above, or those with similar experience, will be best suited for the class.
