We still have a few spots left for the Iron Pentacle workshop in Montreal on November 17th and 18th. Here are the details.
Iron Pentacle Weekend Intensive
November 17th and 18th, 930am-6pm
Cost: $135 – $70 sliding scale
We ask that participants be committed to attending the workshop in its entirety.
Step into your authentic self for a weekend and explore your
relationship with the five points of the Iron Pentacle: Sex, Pride,
Self, Power, and Passion. We believe that these points are our sacred
birthrights, and we’re willing to claim them.
Iron Pentacle is one of the core elements of Reclaiming Tradition of
contemporary American witchcraft. It challenges us to look at our
relationships with the qualities/energies of sex, pride, self, power and
passion; and then integrate these energies into our lives and magic. It
is definitely shadow work!.
Using trance, spellwork and ritual, we will experience the
connections between these points and what happens when the points become
out of balance. We will access each point of the pentacle using
techniques including guided meditation, art, creativity, song, movement,
and sacred play. Together, we will learn to balance the Iron Pentacle
within ourselves and bring it more fully into our lives.
is a Reclaiming initiate and a devote to Feri who strives to combine
the knowledge to be learned from her Elders in the craft with the Wisdom
she has gained from discovering and developing her own personal
practices and magical arts. She has been teaching witchcraft at camps,
intensives, workshops and classes for the past 15 years. She loves the
practical, manifestation magics of creating, recognizing, and honoring
the sacred in our daily lives. Her magical daily practice includes Iron
Pentacle work, grounding, Time magic, Yoga, Tarot, child rearing and
cooking; all as magical and intentional acts. Striving always to welcome
in and acknowledge more beauty, balance, and delight in her life, she
is excited to share, learn, and practice the Art and Craft of living a
sensual, magical, grounded life with you all.
Amanda is an ecstatic
Witch following an initiatory mystery tradition of North American
witchcraft. She has been involved in Reclaiming since 2003 and teaching
within the tradition since 2006. She is currently a member of the
Reclaiming Teachers in Training and Service (RTITS)
guild in New England. Her personal practice celebrates life and places a
strong emphasis on personal responsibility and relationship with
Mystery, including deity, the ancestors, spirits, nature, and our
selves. She believes strongly in having an extensive magical toolkit
that complements real-world skills.
This is intermediate-level work. Participants should be comfortable with
basic personal energy work and should be able to solidly ground and
participate in creating sacred space with a group. This is shadow work.
Participants must be willing to face their triumphs, flaws, and faults.
Prior completion of Elements of Magic,
a core course in the Reclaiming tradition, is a prerequisite for this
course. On occasion, comparable work can be substituted. It is our goal
to create a supportive environment together in which to do this work.
Please do not use drugs or alcohol during our time together in the workshop.
While this work can be deeply healing and truly transformative, it is not a substitute for professional counselling.
Space is limited. All students accepted at the discretion of the instructors.
The fee for the workshop is on a sliding scale ($135-$70) – you choose
where you fit on the scale based on the sustainability of your finances
in the world. The actual cost of the weekend is somewhere just above the
middle. If you need additional help in order to attend, please let us
We expect this workshop to fill up. To reserve your spot, a
non-refundable deposit of $50 is required before September 24th. (The
deposit is transferable.) Payment in full is appreciated before October
The costs of putting on this workshop include two full days of studio
rental in a space located near a metro and large enough to accommodate
movement; travel and billeting for Claudia, as well as childcare while
she is in Montreal with us; and healthy food and snacks. We also hope to
offer each teacher an honorarium if funds permit. If any money is left
over, it will go to a fund to help bring another teacher to Montreal for
a weekend intensive in 2013.
