It’s root wicae, also is the root for wicker, and means that which holds or contains. “None of the proposed etymologies is free from phonetic or semantic difficulties.” (https://www.etymonline.com/word/witch) It is a difficult word and concept because it indicates power.

A View from the World Tree

“Myth is Eternal, but it never stops changing.” So why “The World Tree?” You may be wondering what this class is about. Simply, it’s Norse culture, religion, and tradition. We’ll delve into the greater brutally beautiful picture of what many find as romantic, otherworldly (courtesy of the folks at the History Channel with their program called “Vikings,”) and fantastical. The picture of the Vikings’ mythology and religion that has come down to us is quite a vibrant and nuanced one indeed. The sources for that picture are many and varied, and they’ve supplied us with reams of information concerning what the Vikings believed about their world and the otherworld, and the dozens of sacred stories that they told us and one another. Come with an open heart and mind and give yourself permission experience a view from the World Tree. Luraas (2)

Pagan is the 14th Century Latin term applied to those who are from a rural area, meaning those who weren’t “in the know” or weren’t from the “big city”. In the past, this umbrella term is applied to non-big-3 (Abrahamic) European, Middle Eastern and Northern Africa traditions. It has taken on a more worldwide connotation.

Introduction to Qabala

Qabala is a system of mysticism with its roots in Judaism. It’s been described as a symbolic representation of the connection between humans and the divine – or more simply, as a file cabinet for the universe. While not a religion in and of itself, the symbols and archetypes found in Qabala are common to many religions around the world. Part One begins to look at the Tree of Life (Otz Chaim), the primary glyph of the Qaballistic system. We will discuss the meanings of the ten spheres (Sephiroth) on the Tree, and also touch on how Qabala relates to present-day scientific creation theory. [A short break will follow.] In Part Two, we will discuss some of the paths between the spheres on the Tree of Life, and how they represent different stages of human spiritual evolution. We will also look briefly at how the Tree functions within the Four Worlds of Manifestation.

We’ll change streams for about fifteen minutes at this point and talk to guests from Salt Lake Zero Waste if they are available, about practical, do-able everyday life changes we can most of us make, to help heal our world. After this we’ll get a brief overview of plastics pollution and watch thirty minutes of video from science and animal welfare groups who work to bring us precise knowledge about the threat our everyday culture pose to the water beings, corporeal and non-corporeal, whom we love. We’ll conclude by sharing our thoughts and creating an intangible “prayer poem” that will be “written upon water”, to make as an offering to the beings of the sea. Since some of the video we’ll watch is harrowing, this class could be traumatic for young children. Brown Danielle

Care and Feeding of the Magical Beast Within

Okay, so! We’re otherworldly, have all of these crazy quirks, nuances, abilities, and gifts. We live in a world where we are generally misunderstood, labeled, ostracized, and historically burned at the stake, hung, drawn and quartered, and waterboarded for our beliefs, values, and practices. Insert ‘empath…witch…warlock…(whatever label you agree with and works for you)…here. We are bombarded by everything around us and it wears on us. Our very natures demand that we care for ourselves…for the magic within…for the mystical magical creatures that live within us. So how do we do this when we constantly give to, heal, work with and for … others? Come take a ride with our presenter and hopefully take away tools you can use to exercise your own power of self, and give yourself permission to love and care for the magical beast that is you.
