The casting of the circle is the beginning of ritual and magic in many Wiccan and Pagan traditions and the beginning is always important. In fact, the energetic container provided by the circle casting greatly determines the qualities and characteristics of the ritual experience and efficacy. Do not underestimate the impact of a strong and coherent circle casting that is tuned to the specific work that you are about to undertake.

In this workshop we will explore the process of circle casting, the nature of the Quarters, the 4 Elements, the 3 Modalities, and nuances that are often left out in most training. Whether you are a beginner or an old hand this workshop will provide you with useful insight and techniques. There will be a mixture of both theory and practice. If you have a wand or an athame, please bring it (or both). If not, there will be a few available on loan for the exercises.The workshop will also cover techniques to awaken and to raise the power that is required to actually create sacred space. Perfectly spoken invocations and moving with grace and ease are not enough. You must actually become a conduit for the energies required to take us between the worlds and you must shape them with your will.
