The Rites of Glamour: Sovereignty, Desire, Sacrifice & Prophecy

A Month Long Ritual Workshop Intensive

1. Claim Your Sovereignty.  We adjust our crowns.  We set our intention.  We learn to ask for what we want and then just a little more than we deserve.  We perform rites to Fortuna.

2. Claim Your Desire.  We fine tune our respective compass roses so that they are set towards what we desire.  We use our glamour to work towards receiving what we’ve asked for.  We become seated in our intention.  We perform rites to Venus.3. Claim Your Sacrifice.  We reach into ourselves to find an austerity appropriate to receive our intention.  We participate in the sacred exchange of offerings.  We perform rites to Diana.

4. Claim Your Prophecy.  We journey to our under worlds and learn inner truths about our Working..  We perform rites to Proserpina. 

A personal share:

When I went into this on this project, I was terrified.  My imposture syndrome was on overdrive, even though I have a book and I’ve been a practicing Witch for the last twenty years.  I remember being fearless and outlining rituals for my coven and grove to do with me running the show as an early twentysomething.  It never occurred to me then to wonder if I had the knowledge base needed to run group rites.   I had this vague idea to do a lot of research and put something together that other people would find palatable and I would be crowned Queen of Research and Ritual or whatever.  Crazy, right?  As I got more deeply into considering what I wanted to do for my class, I realized I wanted to show you my heart, not impress you with my brain.  I put together rites that I do regularly and perform them with you, both on video and in life.  I answered questions in Q & A from my actual experience and spoke very frankly in the sacred space we made for ourselves.  I was so pleased to see the progress and results that my students made in their Work and to be pointed in new directions to explore.

This one-month long ritual workshop will include:

  • Approximately 3,000 words of written material on each Rite along with approximately an hour of video per Rite (12 video lessons total)
