“The Poison Garden of The Mighty Dead” Weekend Intensive With Christopher Penczak
October 15, 2016 @ 6:00 am - 1:00 pm EDT
One event on October 16, 2016 at 6:00 am
The Mighty Dead are the enlightened ancestors of Witchcraft, Magick and Shamanism, those who have walked the path before us and lead the way. They are teachers, healers, guides and masters dancing at the eternal sabbat found in dream, myth and vision. There they tend the garden of plant spirit familiars, the poisonous plants that teach us the mysteries of life and rebirth. They are the classic plants of the Witch’s Flying Ointment – Belladonna, Datura, Henbane, Hellebore, Hemlock, Monkshood and Mandrake. These plant spirits initiate us in the ways of Witchcraft, and to fly forth in vision to and from the sabbat grove. Experience the seven gates of the Underworld with their seven plant teachers and initiators. Learn about the nature of the Soul from the Witch’s perspective. Each one offers a key to go deeper into spirit. Experience each one in guided vision and ritual, using safely prepared essences, remedies and ointments to add to the magic. Seek the Master of the Sabbat who is the Three Faced Lord, and the Green Man, as well as the Goddess of Fate and the Lady of Flowers. Drawn from the books The Plant Spirit Familiar (2012) and The Mighty Dead (2013). Please bring a small cup or chalice.
