Intro to Kirkean (Circe-centered) Witchcraft with Nick Dickinson
Time & Location
Aug 06, 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM EDT
About the event
Circe is the very first deity to be associated with witchcraft in the Greek language. Her narrative and influence spans centuries of literature and art, and deeply informs all modern ideas about witchcraft.
This ritual presentation will offer:
⁃ a brief history of Circe and an exploration of her modern representations
⁃ practical methods to approach Circe as a living current of witchcraft energy
⁃ group ritual that will include guided grounding and setting of intentional energetic space, chant, spirit-flight, spirit offerings, deity yoga(an introduction to Circe and her ‘island’), and witch-fire empowerment
⁃ crafting a daily Circe practice
⁃ time for questions and answers
Content is suitable for all levels and all traditions, and can be approached in a purely secular way. Expect to participate in ritual and feel free to be creative with altars and set up.
Optional ingredients to have on hand: rosewater (or clean drinking water), and a dish or container to pour out libations, a representation of Circe (could be the Strength card from your favorite deck), and a broom or other ritual objects to support spirit-flight.
This is a 90-120 minute, foundational level lecture, workshop & guided meditation.
