Harry Potter ?

Just call me 'arry - well, that is who I feel like today, because I am off to witch's school. The next step of my journey~ I am pretty darn excited. I have been searching for something like this for awhile now and I just found out about it two weeks ago... just after Daisy's death ~ *When the Student is Ready, the Teacher will appear*.... it is only about half an hours drive from my home ~ fortnightly on a Saturday for two hours... perfect! that way I can still potter in my garden on Saturday afternoons. Of course there is so much to do in the garden at the moment. It has been raining here for weeks, we have had 14 ins of rain in 2 weeks, can you believe it? 'droughts and flooding rain', for sure. The ground is sodden, my garlic needs to go in, the roses need to be pruned and I need to harvest my lavender - but of course it will get done in due course. The wind whipped up over night and if it continues, then I won't be doing gardening again this weekend - the wind is coming off snow - freezing. So instead, the fire will be lit and I will be reading....and today is the full moon ~ the blue moon to be exact..according to my moon diary, a day to eat food that is rich in fibre and low in salt and also a good day to polish timber furniture. Tonight, I am going to take time to spend bathing in the full moon light - and tap into my well of wisdom and inner peace....


SO ~ I have my satchel all packed - pens, paper, magick journal, no wand yet.... the name of my course is *Australian Indigenous Witchcraft, Shamanism and Natural Magick for the Southern Hemisphere. and todays lesson is ~ Introduction to the Elements and Quarters, Meeting and working with Spirit/Centre. I cannot wait to share what I learn!

Welcome to Hogwarts! Oh, no, sorry, that's another story! I eagerly look forward to your story - as much as you care to share - of your course. We have nothing like that here.

I hope you new blog flourishes for many years to come - or as long as you wish it to.

I will be bathing in the full moon tomorrow night, barring rain showers.

OOOh...Learning the old ways of the indigenous people..... is that aboriginal shamanism???? I love learning the ways of the native Americans. This is going to be great Robyn.Can't wait to hear about it!!!!

Tinker said...

I wonder what house the Sorting Hat will put you in, lol. That really is an smszing synchronicity that you should find that right now. What an exciting new adventure you're on, Robyn!

Can't wait to hear more about it.

That was supposed to be "amazing" - not whatever gobbledygook I ended up typing!

The classes sound like they are just what you have been looking for. I remember one of my first classes when I went to "witchschool" was learning about the elements. You didn't say how long the school is? Is it a typical year and a day degree?
I attended once a week for a year, and am entitled to a "certificate" but our community is eclectic so we did not get a degree like Wiccan studies offer. I have almost completed my on line "degree" in Corrilian Wicca, so I will be an "official witch" soon.
I'm looking forward to you sharing what you learn with us.

I admire you so much for the topics and interests you pursue. You are drawn to so many different things, and always seem to be able to come up with classes and books to further your knowledge and ours. I can't wait to hear how the class went.

At least it's near enough so you won't have to run through a pillar to get to a train station.lol!
But seriously, I think it sounds absolutely fascinating and I am sure there will be great wisdom to be learned and shared. I, like Gemma, am very interested in the Native American way but alas there is NOTHING here that has classes teaching it. You've really been lucky to have places to go to further your quest for knowledge. U await your first report!
XOXO
Love and hugs,
Lisa
