Creating Magical Space (60 min)

An Exposition of Pentagram Rituals (90 min)
Do you think you may be “doing the Star Ruby wrong” and avoid doing it in a group? Calm your anxiety and celebrate the variations! Participants will volunteer and demonstrate four different pentagram ceremonies: the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram, Liber Stellae Rubeae, the Greater Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram, and Liber Reguli. We will discuss the similarities and differences between the ceremonies, different styles of performance, and experiment with different ways to adapt the ceremonies into magical work. Intermediate level, but beginners are welcome.

Sex Magick and Overcoming Obstacles, Particularly for Women (90 – 120 minutes)
How do you do sex magick if you can only orgasm a particular way? Are you hooked on porn and fantasy? What if your long-term partner doesn’t share your interest? Are you a woman who does not menstruate because of contraception, menopause, sex change or surgery and is bothered by claims that “a woman is at the height of her magical power while menstruating?” These are some of the many obstacles a magician may face in their life-long sex magick practices. This class will discuss myths, theories, ethics and techniques in meeting a variety of challenges. We’ll have a few exercises too. Exercises are clothed and one may opt out if they choose. For all levels.
