                                                                 *A Livestream class with Diana Rajchel*

Spirit workers, witches, and healers have often had to reach deep into their inner selves and their magical toolbags for solutions to help those that come to them with some serious and challenging problems. One such solution often left to more advanced practitioners, is that of invisibility and perception. In this workshop, Diana Rajchel offers tools from her practice to assist and protect vulnerable communities – especially those trying to live their lives and raise their families in the shadow of ICE and those that get out and speak against these and many other inequities of current life. This workshop takes into account that different workers tend to use methods that best align with the way they process information. For the visual/mental/auditory group, energy workings, the glamours, and spirit communication will likely prove most helpful. For those of a kinesthetic/emotional/not necessarily psychic group, physical spells, including incantations, recipes, and overt spellcasting will likely be what fits them. However, everyone will have access to all material presented.

Class Highlights:

  • Escape notice from so-called authority figures

  • To moderate ways in which others perceive you

  • To ensure that you do NOT come to mind at a later time

  • To make sure that your workings remain hidden from those that might trace them to you, or have cause to interfere with your doings

  • To make yourself very noticed by those most likely to come to your aid

*Working with and responding to what we perceive as darker energies in our homes and our lives, beginning with facing our fears and from there establishing our true boundaries and obligations (90 minutes, includes journaling time)*

                 The shadow escapes from the body like an animal we had been sheltering. - Gilles Deleuze

Shadow-work is part of advancement in metaphysical, spiritual paths, but what does it mean? In recent years it has become a buzzword that is part of the self-improvement code the negative things we find out about ourselves or the things that we avoid, that we then identify so we can continue avoiding them. Yet this approach, while bringing momentary self-recognition, fails to truly embrace, value, and hear the shadow as it needs.

Our shadows -- those dark emotions we don't want to feel, those drivers that we re-label and to justify sometimes bad and harmful behavior -- need to be heard, need to be seen and need to be understood before we can move into working with dark energies, whether demons, wrathful angels, or especially vengeful gods. This energy and meditation-based workshop call upon the time of the Wild Hunt (between Samhain and Yule) to summon our darkness to ourselves that we can turn and face what we run from, and learn how that affects our mindset and the impact of our magickal energy.

*Learn the etiquette of working with graves and graveyard spirits, including how to research a gravesite and what to do to build a relationship with a departed spirit. (75 minutes)*

So, its Halloween, and you're feeling spooky, and you want to visit a graveyard, maybe grab a little graveyard dirt and watch the shadows dance between the trees. Perhaps you just want to make some cool gravestone rubbings, hunt for a weeping angel or three, and maybe get a cool photoshoot next to that one really weird mausoleum. That's all fine and well but just because the dead or dead doesn't mean they can't hear you, and they will find a way to do something about your behavior.

**Online Magick: Ancestor Veneration 101**

Date & Time: Monday, October 19, 2020 6pm PDT - 7:30pm PDT

ONLINE EVENT

*Ways to incorporate honoring ancestors and your beloved dead into your spiritual practices. (90 minutes)*

Honoring those that came before and healing the wounds they left behind while celebrating the good legacies has become increasingly important as we all reckon the sins of the past with the responsibilities and gifts of the present. In the season that contains Halloween, Samhain, Dio de las Muertos and Day of the Dead/All Souls Day, Diana Rajchel talks about how to invite your ancestors into your lives and build a relationship with your own Dearly Departed and Mighty Dead. This is not a practice of blind worship, but one that accounts for generational trauma, bad boundaries, and ancestors that you may not wish to welcome. The style of ancestor veneration taught is one of active relationship.

Learn how to build your own ancestor altar even if you don't have old family pictures how to blend the altar with that of your loved one, what to do if you or a loved one are adopted, and how you can tell if your ancestors are communicating with you. The class will finish with a small demonstration ceremony.

**Online Magickal Protection 101**

Date & Time:  Monday, October 5, 2020  6pm-7:30pm PST

Hosted by Wicked Grounds, Wicked Grounds Annex, & Kinky Queer Revolution

ONLINE EVENT

Presenter: Diana Rajchel

Tickets: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4741020 

*Using both energy techniques and folk magic, this teaches a subset of spell and energy workings to help keep you safe from physical and psychic intrusions. (75 minutes)*

You know not to leave your doors locked at night, you know, to change your computer passwords, and especially if you live in the Bay area, you lock anything you need to store in your car in the trunk, out of sight. When it comes to boundaries of physical property, we, for the most part, know when to trust and when not to. We often do not understand how to apply those boundaries to our metaphysical lives. Along with protecting our selves and others, we often need to set wards and filters on our person, our home, our transit, our items, and our businesses.

In this 75-minute workshop, learn how and why to link cleansing practices with protections, and how to establish and regularly update- rules for what energy may and may not connect with you and that which is associated with you. Working within a folk witchcraft framework, Diana Rajchel teaches a series of spells and formulas to protect yourself and those you love from physical and social harm, deter thieves, and to avoid the less than law-abiding law. Besides using both energy methods and folk workings, she shares ways to screen metaphysical callers, regulate spirit traffic, and establish relationships with spirits animistic and collective to create your spiritual security team.
