We will focus on Hekate’s role throughout, exploring how the Queen of the Crossroads was honored and invoked to provide the devotee with protection, power, guidance, advantage and access to immortal spirits.
We will cover both Hekate’s theurgic and necromantic functions, and the evolution of her image over time. The class will increase the students’ understanding of the cultural context from which Hekate’s cult arose, and the actual magical means by which she was propitiated, invoked and compelled.

- Teacher: Jack Grayle
For the first time, you can study the momentous impact of Lilith from the Mesopotamian empires to modern times. Students will investigate and evaluate the mythology that has literally impacted cultures globally for millennia.
As a Goddess, Lilith stands in both the dark and light: a power open and unveiled but also hidden and mysterious. Some refute her divinity, claiming she was simply a few editorial comments in the Bible. Others acknowledge her power, but worship her in contradictory ways. Through mythology, historical texts, linguistics and art, we will strive to understand this mysterious and powerful goddess and the many contradictory stories about her.
The material in this class has never before been gathered together in one place.
Pre-requisite: Magic 151-Introduction to Meditation or permission of the teacher.

Magic 455 The God Energy in us All
We will be learning in this course about The Men’s Mysteries. These are, what been labeled as, the Masculine force which exists and flows through Nature. In Wicca it is called the GOD aspect. This force is present and interconnected and a polarity to the Feminine Force or the Goddess aspect. They are the opposite ends of one Force. In our physical reality and expression, we experience through perception, one end of this polarity. So to begin to understand the end of this polarity we call the Masculine Force we shall take a look at the Basic Nature of Men.
