‘Calm-Abiding’ Meditation Class with Aaron Leitch   Leave a comment

Meditation Class with Aaron Leitch

The Methods of Calm-Abiding

(aka ‘Meditation Basics 101’)

 

AaronAtMystikalScents

At Mystikal Scents Metaphysical Supplies

March 24th : 7-9pm

9545 E Fowler Ave Thonotosassa, FL 33952

 

When we use the word “meditation” in the West, we most often use it in the sense of meditating upon something (like a magical image, sigil, or mystical concept) – a practice that would more correctly be called “contemplation.”  In the East, it is called “special-insight meditation.”  However, such special-insight meditation is a more advanced practice, intended for use only after one has learned the most basic form of true meditation.

CALM-ABIDING MEDITATION is the practice of bringing the mind to a state of complete stillness and utter silence, which is no easy task, as the unruly child-like mind would rather not sit in perfect silence.  There are worries and stresses, hopes and dreams, plans to consider, past events to mull over and a host of other thoughts the mind would rather chase after. However, to achieve success in later meditations, it is first necessary to bring that unruly mind under control.

This workshop will cover techniques for relaxing the body, gently bringing the mind under control and naturally entering a deep meditative state.  You’ll be going deeper into your OWN consciousness than you’ve likely ever gone before. If you have never experienced these parts of yourself, or the bliss of complete Silence of the Mind (your unborn consciousness), then you will not want to miss this class!

*** Special Instructions:  Wear loose, comfortable clothing, bring pen & paper to take notes, and if you desire, bring a blanket, mat or pillow – especially for the body relaxation techniques.

 

This class requires pre-registration and payment of $25 by March 22nd.

Call Mystikal Scents at 813-986-3212 to reserve your seat.

New Workshop – Working With Your Ancestors (October 3rd)   2 comments

Greetings my Witchy friends!

In just a couple of weeks (October 3, 2015), my wife and I will be hosting a workshop near Tampa, FL – on the subject of building and working an Ancestor Altar (also called a Boveda).  This is a one-time class, lasting about two hours (1-3pm) at Mystikal ScentsYou have to register by Oct 1st!  See below for more info:

 

Boveda

 

Mystikal Scents Presents

Working with Your Ancestors

Aaron & Carrie Leitch

Saturday, October 3rd

1:00 – 3:00 PM

The ancestor altar is one of the first magickal tools created by a new witch, and one of her primary methods of working with the spirit world. It was from her ancestors that she drew her power, her spiritual insight and through whom she could perform nearly any form of domestic magick – healing, protection, divination, prosperity (crops, livestock, and children), bringing money, etc., etc.

In this class, adept sorcerers Aaron and Carrie Leitch will relate the history and philosophy behind ancestor work, explain how to construct your own ancestor altar (Boveda) and teach you how to put it to use.

You will also learn all of the important protocols for working with your ancestors safely and successfully.

This will be a one day class held on Saturday, October 3rd from 1 – 3 PM. Cost is $20. Deadline to schedule is Oct 1st. Preregistration is required.

Call Mystikal Scents @ 813-986-3212 to register today!

Ceremonial Magick 101 Classes in New York!   Leave a comment

Great News, Students!

My Ceremonial Magick 101 classes are taking off!  Carrie and I continue to offer them about twice a year here in the Tampa, FL area, and now we are making the same classes available in other areas of the country.

As we get the program under way, we are only allowing adepts of the Ciceros’ Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn to teach the classes.  (Whether we expand this to teachers from other GD orders will depend on how things develop.)  This assures that your instructors will be highly educated and trained in the material.  They will be using the exact same curriculum myself and Carrie teach here, including tons of useful handouts.  At the end of the class, you will even receive a certificate signed by myself and Carrie, as well as your instructors, to show you have graduated this specific course.

First up are Adepts Dave W and Andrea L in New York.  They are personal friends besides being respected teachers in our Order, and I am fully confident in their ability to teach these classes.  So if you are in the NY/Long Island area and have been wanting a chance to attend my classes, this is it!  See below for details, and make sure to grab a seat while space remains!

NOTE: I know many of you will ask about online classes.  Yes, those are still in the plans.  But those plans are on hold while we establish these in-person classes first.  My course is better when it is face-to-face and hands-on.  The online classes will have to take a new format – still to be determined.  So stay tuned for more on that!
