In this lecture we will be using contemporary critical theory, such as the works of feminist post-colonial philosopher Sarah Ahmed, as well as historical analysis of Northern European witchcraft practices, to explore the roots, meanings, and possibilities for working with the beings often referred to as The Guardians. We will look at the way the Directions are perceived in multiple cultures around the world, highlighting the way that our understanding of direction through space and time is rooted in our cultural cosmology. Participants can expect to leave this workshop having a much deeper understanding of direction on many levels: philosophical, spiritual, poetical, and practical.
