Full Schedule

One of the greatest benefits of working magic with a group is raising power together, drawing on the force of every present soul to create unbelievable group energy. Witches, magicians, and healers have used many methods of raising power throughout history. These have included drumming, dancing, chanting, and singing. In this class, we're going to explore the group dynamics of raising power together and the most potent methods of crafting magic with others. We will explore:

  • Group dynamics and mindfulness: what is everyone doing and why?
  • Crafting powerful chants for group work.
  • Various forms of movement and dance in group settings.
  • The pitfalls of groups practice.
  • Music, worship, and timing: the nuts and bolts of effective group ritual.
  • How to find and harness the individual strengths of a group's members.

This is not going to be solely a note-taking class. Those who are willing will be able to put into practice what we are learning, working together in a real, kinetic way to show the power behind group work. Come and join the dance!
