This first week is getting to know each other and a “how to” on building your own magickal practice by bringing together traditions from all over the globe.

Week 4 – Agony & Ecstasy
How can you push your physical self to a place of connection with the divine? Experiment with sensory stimulation, including sound bath & temperature flux, to see what physical changes enhance your energetic self. Examine the traditions of Sufi Mystics, Buddhist Ascetics and modern BD/sm Kinksters.

Week 7 – Sex Magick
How can we use sex to manifest our power into the world and create change within ourselves? We will talk about the power of masturbation, multi-person sex, intentional sex and sex spells. Fair warning: the homework may be more fun than the class itself! Examine the traditions of Hindu Kundalini, English Victorian ceremonialism, and ancient Greek sacred whores.
Week 8 – Divination

Discover which divinatory tools speak most to you and how you can use them to become a Seer. Get to play with pendulums, cards, runes, scrying bowls, dowsing rods, and more.
