Open Imbolc Ritual,S.Ca(L.A>),CA,USA
7 years ago
Friday Feb 1st 7pm Imbolc Ritual – Imbolc or Oimealg, is derived from the Gaelic Oimelc. Animals have given birth to the first offspring of the year. Life is beginning to renew in the harshness of winter. In the ancient times of the northern regions, people gathered to see who had survived the winter and shared what foods they had with those who had run short. From now until Ostera the pathway is less dark. Thus our journey shall be made through the spring equinox renewed in strength and happy in love.At Enchanted Deva's we gather for rituals between 6:30 and 7:15, the doors are locked at 7:30. Rituals usually last until 8:45-9pm. Our Sabbat rituals are conducted by Lady Morgaine, an eclectic solitary. Our space is open and we are delighted to welcomes all traditions and paths, we only ask that you come with an open mind and heart. We have found that a diverse variety of participants creates a well rounded circle.We ask for a $10 donation, this goes to the priestess and the space to help defer costs for the event. If this is a burden to you, we ask that you donate what you are able to, in appreciation for the ritual. As this ritual will be held on a Friday evening, we will follow the ritual with a traditional POTLUCK.Enchanted Deva's5050 Vineland Ave North Hollywood, CA 91601818-980-3382

Pombagira Workshop: Passion 10/6 Posted by: "Ginger Baker" gingerbaker1@netzero.com   gingerthegirl Sat Sep 15, 2007 7:55 pm (PST) Pombagira: PassionPombagira, an Orisha in the Afro-Brazilian pantheon, is the Sacred Harlot of Rio de Janeiro. Through rhythm, dance, guided meditation, and discussion, we will explore the gifts that she offers to those who work with her energy. She teaches self-confidence and love of the body and mind. It’s not necessary to have any experience working with Pombagira before this workshop, only an openness and willingness to do the work.Her colors are black and red in all traditions, and often white is added as a bit of a buffer, representing for this work: power (black), passion (red), and intent (white). In this workshop we begin the process of understanding and integrating passion into our lives. We will start the work by examining the difference between living in our passion (joy) and being dragged about by our wants and needs. This workshop helps us understand why the statement "no pain, no gain" needs to be out of our vocabulary and how to, instead, move towards making pleasure a guiding principle in our lives. This work enables us to live more and more consciously in the world with greater balance, dignity, strength, and grace.About the Instructor: Ann Argabrite is an ordained Senior Medium and High Priestess in the Orisha-based tradition that she follows. After ordination, she chose to dedicate her spiritual work to Pombagira with the creation of The Heart of the Rose Temple. Her work is recognized by leaders in various traditions, such as Brazilian Umbanda and Santeria. She began and continues sharing her workshops as a tool in her own spiritual growth to better know and understand Pombagira. She has been presenting these workshops for 9 years and the work continues to grow and change each year. Ann lives in San Francisco and will be traveling to Southern California to teach the workshop.Saturday, October 6, 20077pm-10pmOpen to both men and women.

Spiritual Consulations by Lucumi author Ochani Lele Wednesday August 8th&Sunday, August 26th Divination cost $31 The Lucumi (Santeria) faith is an ancient earth-religion brought from the Yoruba city-states of ancient Africa during the slave-trades into Cuba and the rest of the New World. It combines the wisdom and power of the African deitiesknown as the orishas with modern sensibilities. As a spiritual system, the Diloggun, is more than a tool of divination. It is a transformational process, a spiritual ritual, and the forces set in motion when the oracle is cast upon the diviner's mat deterimines, shapes, and assists the client's future evolution. Ochani Lele has written 3 books on the divination systems of Santeria:The Diloggun; Obi: Oracle of Cuban Santeria; and the The Secrets of Afro-Cuban Divination. Under his real name of Sutart Myers, he wrote: Between the Worlds: Witchcraft & the Tree of Life,a program of spiritual development.

Beyond a healing modality, the purpose of this work is to give you fresh ingredients to add to the recipe of your life.All you need is to be open, to be interested in improving the quality of your life, to be curious enough to explore and to have the courage to venture beyond that which you now know. http://soundhealing .org/Healing Sessions by Christopher TimsSaturday, September 1st11 am - 6 pm Christopher Tims will be available for sound therapy healing sessions.

Learn how to blend your formulary and be able to read other formulas within the Books of Blends and know if they are right or wrong from an Alchemists point of view. Learn the common misconceptions and mistakes. In this course we will break down the oils/herbs into a mathematical equation of planetary influence. From there you will learn how to build the most basic formulas and blends. Alchemy is the basis of most, if not all, of the pagan paths. In this course you get the opportunity to learn from an actual working modern master Alchemist.The nation's oldest occult store, Panpipes Magickal Marketplace, is proud to announce that Jymie Darling, Co-Owner of the store and director of Pagan Days Festival, will be teaching Beginning Alchemy.

You will learn how to build the perfected beginning elixir of herbs and oils. At the end of the class you will actually be given the chance to create and blend your elixir with Jymie Darling. The follow-up class on the next week will be to become more advanced using the elements and astrology to fine tune your newly learned skills. Her hands on approach is refreshing and unique to teaching. She actually cares that every student understand and grasp what she is teaching and takes individual time when necessary. Fiona Horne, reknown Wiccan author and respected figure in the pagan community, has suggested that beginners in her coven take Jymie's courses to get foundational knowledge to begin their paths.Jymie Darling is a world reknown occultist who has been aired internationally in countries such as Amsterdam, Japan, Ireland and the US. Seen in shows such as North Mission Road and a consultant and occult expert on air and behind the scenes on Court TV, A & E, TLC, Tyra Banks Show, KCOP (Now UPN) News, Ninth Gate, JAG, Pirates of the Carribean II, CSI Las Vegas and many more! She has also been the subject of articles written and interviewed in such publications as Los Angeles Times, The Kalamazoo Daily, Los Angeles Magazine, The Independent, Angelyne, New Times, LA Weekly, Religious Times, Enquirer and many more. Jymie has been teaching at Panpipes Magickal Marketplace for over 8 years and has been practicing for more than 16 years.
