  • “Without a vision, the people perish” Proverbs 29:1 Visioning is self-contemplation at the level of infinite possibility. It involves our whole spirit/mind/body self to reveal us at our spiritual DNA level. We get to know who we are and what we can be.
  • We will discuss the importance of self-knowing at the visceral level before deciding what we want. We will look at the difference between visioning and visualization as we learn that we are always at choice. We will sit in a 40-50-minute visioning meditation and then journal what we found. Finally we will discuss next steps to manifest our highest vision.

“First you ask definitely for direction, then it will enter your consciousness as a definite thought; then in your turn you give it back the thought and it will give you back the thing. It answers every question, solves every problem; it is the solution to every difficulty.” Ernest Holmes

Sunday morning 9am-1pm – The Charge of the Goddess – Anja – I’ve been studying the Charge of the Goddess and the uses of this sacred writing for many years. It’s as important to Pagans/Wiccans as the Lord’s Prayer is to Christianity or the Om Mane Padme Hum mantra is to followers of many of the Eastern Paths. We’ll go over a little of the history and development of the Charge, analyze the structure of it and then go over some of the many variations, including the various Charges of the God, ones with specific deity names, and the Litany of the Lord and Lady.

Friday afternoon 2-6pm – Candle workshop, making votives – Anja – Ancient Light, classroom – 7 people max – $3 – We use a ton of candles in the Craft. Have you ever gotten cranky over the prices that are being charged for them? Or the amount of chemical fragrance that makes you sneeze or sick to your stomach? We’ll be making and molding our own votives, some recycled wax, some of beeswax and some of paraffin and talking about not only safety, but how to color or scent candles safely, along with candlemaking basics. $3 covers your materials cost and a handout.

  • Youngest person accepted in the class. 8. Younger aren’t safe around hot wax except with parents. All minors must be accompanied by parent or guardian.

Sunday afternoon 4-6pm – Candle workshop, reclaiming wax – Anja – Ancient Light, classroom – 7 people max – $3 – We use a ton of candles in the Craft, but they drip, they run, they make blogs on the altar cloth (or the altar, <shudder>) and all of those candles ends…. You don’t want to just trash can all that leftover energy, so what do you do with it?

  • Youngest person accepted in the class. 8. Younger aren’t safe around hot wax except with parents. All minors must be accompanied by parent or guardian.

Saturday afternoon 2-6pm – Magickal embroidery – Anja – 1-8 people – Class cost is $2 for the handout and a small kit of materials. Come see some examples of this ancient form of knotwork and learn how they are done! We will cover: What makes embroidery magickal? How to attain and keep the concentration necessary to set intent. What techniques work best? Colors, stitches, fabrics….which are good for which purpose? What books are helpful? This is *not* a class in basic embroidery, but we will learn a simple stitch and practice setting of intent, sufficient to consecrate an item. Please bring sharp-pointed scissors or snips if you have them. (Anja *does* teach classes in regular embroidery. Ask for details)

  • Youngest person accepted in the class. 3 – Yes, 3…. all minors must be accompanied by parent or guardian.

Saturday evening – Midnight Questions – Anja – Ancient Light, book/altar area- By donation – Think the local pub near a seminary on a Friday night. This is a crowd-directed discussion. We’ll put a can on the altar for questions that you’d like to hear folks kick around or to discuss yourself. It’s intended for a free-form bit for those folks who tend to stay up, anyway! We’ll bring a little wine to share and folks are welcome to bring munchies and drinkable. There’s no fee, no limit, just whoever shows and for however long. We’ll start probably after the evening ritual and then go on however long….

Friday evening Drumming/Toning workshop – This is another free-form one, intended for whoever shows up. Bring your drums and other rhythm things and there will be a basket of “loaners” to dink with as well.

Saturday 2-4pm – Buddhism, the healing practice – Nick – I would like to offer a basic introduction to the practice and answer any questions you might have. “Nam-myoho-renge-kyo” – The essence of Buddhism is the conviction that we each have within us the ability to overcome any pro0blem or difficulty that we may encounter in life. Hope to see you all soon.

Max people: I have seating for 10
Age doesn’t matter… will have color pencils and drawing stuff to keep the attention of kiddos if parents are interested in coming and bringing their children
No Cost
Located at NBG Investigation Group and Notary, 215 SW Hwy 101, Suite 1, Waldport, Oregon (this is right down the street from Ancient Light)
