Ancestral Healing and the River of Blood: Ancient Lore and a Healing Practice for Resolving Conflict on Both Sides of the Veil
Part 1

“We cannot curse the roots and bless the fruits.”

Much of the future of our species is contingent upon its relationship to its past. All of
us (human and other) partake of a great stream of life called the River of Blood. Yet,
sadly few of us have a living awareness of it and how to access, navigate and
mediate it for the good of the past, present and future. In this workshop, Orion will
discuss the nature of what he calls “life’s undercurrent” and its influence on the quality
and potentials of our current lives. This current is both a source of great nourishment,
wisdom, power and support but also the origins of many subtle and overt paradoxes,
and problems in our lives. We are the inheritors and sometimes the perpetrators of
these qualities. To heal ourselves and our world, we must heal what ancient
ancestors knew as the River of Blood. So much of the past lives within us as the present and this can be very unhealthy when done without healing and discernment practices. After all, the past is for reflection and not residence. So, how do we heal those who have passed into the internal tide of life? How do we carry forth the best of their life within us while

releasing, redeeming or healing the worst? After all the traumas of the past, and the associated effects and aftermath do not simply go away. No, they recede into the underbelly of the expressed world where feed and/or erode at vitality of current life. Conversely, there is a saying, “no wisdom leaves the world and love is eternal”, which means that these traits are also passed down to us or they can be accessed and brought forward.

This workshop is about healing those qualities of the ancestral stream (“the River of Blood”) that entangles and entrenches us in forms of sorrow.These patterns reveal the pain of those who went before us and its presence in our current lives. Why carry these when you have choice?.

    Witchblood and the Original Ancestors: The Meaning, Magic and Mystery of the “Uncanny Knowing”.
    Part 2

    Through the centuries and across many cultures, there are stories, lore and legends about certain types of humans that are born with extraordinary gifts for healing, cursing, wortcunning, clairvoyance, shape-shifting , weather-working and the list goes on. The propensity for this “otherness” is said to run in what in many traditions is called “the witch-blood. The concept of the Witch-Blood is one of the core teachings in older forms of traditional Craft. Within these teachings is a belief that witches, their propensity of “otherness”, and seemingly supernatural gifts are a genetic trait. The origins are said to be from an ancient time when some humans mated with spirits/ otherworldly beings such as angels and Faeries. Further, this trait awakens from its dormancy in predictable ways when necessity, opportunity, and resources align or when nature (Mother Fate) summons them. Witches are a significant key to natural order. Thus, the old saying, “when the world needs witches; witches arrive”! This workshop extends the mysteries of ancestry and the river of blood into the heritage of the witch as being offspring of the human ancestral stream and something else, older than our species and our planet. The lore suggests that its origins are stellar. One thing we know, this blood is awakening at an unprecedented level across the world. In this workshop, Orion will share teachings on the following:

  • ●  The origins and implications of the Witch-Blood;
  • ●  An Inquisitor’s dilemma “the uncanny knowing”
  • ●  The faery race as the “original Ancestors”
  • ●  The summoning of the witch
  • ●  The mystical awakening process or, “I touch you and your blood remembers”
  • ●  Recognizing and managing the “witches madness”;
  • ●  Caveats & advises on managing its power as the cauldron seethes.;
  • ●  An understanding of what has awakened the witch-blood at such a high level now;
  • ●  How to hear and heed its guidance from within with a core focus on “being powerful inpowerless times”;
  • ●  Maintaining clarity by avoiding entanglements, entrenchments and contamination ofinner sight;
  • ●  Post-Inquisitional trauma
  • ●  The “witch-flame” and the “witch-knowing”.

Faery Gardening with Elysia the Naughty Faery

The Faery’s Kitchen with Elysia the Naughty Faery

Cooking is a great way to focus energy, and those who learn how to harness this skill truly bring magic into the food they serve, either for themselves or for many people. So what do faeries have to do with cooking? When you’ve learned how to work with faerie, pretty much EVERYTHING about cooking is right up their alley. In this class we will be discussing some techniques of how to put a little faerie magic into pretty much anything you cook. Some simple herbs that are probably already in your kitchen, and a few recipes that the faeries have given me over the years. There may be nibbles to test while in the class!

Seeking the Center: Contacting, Mediating and Embodying Your Inner Power with Orion Foxwood

Seeking the Center: Contacting, Mediating and Embodying Your Inner Power

“Seek Ye the Eye of the Storm and 
find Wisdom in its Stillness”
Living in the physical world, while seeking spiritual wisdom can be a great challenge in this highly externalized human world. Even the Bible warns “what profit a man to gain the world but lose his soul”. There is an inspiration in your essence that was so powerful that ts pulsed you from the invisible to the incarnate state; and true happiness and personal power is in its discovery. This essential core is peaceful, connected, powerful and wise and it is “the pearl of great price”. This mythical “center” is spoken of in many traditions and practices but vaguely of in passing.Yet, this center is a spark of the original star that ignited all existence and as such must be the sun around which our personal planetary life revolves. It is also our foundation and anchoring place that keeps us from drifting when the winds of change are upon us. In this workshop, Orion will discuss the concept of the center, what it is, how to align into it, how we loose awareness of it, how to clean and feed it; and, how to sense its vibrance and witness its effects in the physical world. He will discuss the primary distractions and how to develop a lifestyle that maintains alignment with both our personal center and the “centrum universa”.  He will also teach techniques called “praying to the center” and “cosmating from the core”. Other teachings covered include:
  • The Dweller on the Threshold
  • The Dark Night of the Soul
  • The Calling of Completion
  • The roles of prayer, meditation, mind-fullness and Magic
  • Core Drives and distracting fears
  • The Deeper Meaning of Love, Forgiveness and Blessing
Never forget that You are the Source Centered in Substance.
Class fee $33, discounted to $30 if paid in cash.

Midsummer’s Faery Vision Quest with Griffin Ced

Midsummer Faerie Vision Quest.
Presented by Griffin
*Note: prepayment required!
Please Call as these sell out fast! 818 985 2010

The Vision Quest for this month was a tricky one to lock down as there is so much going on in so many courts! But in the end, the damn Faeries won out! Have they been busy of late or what? I talked to our resident Faerie Mistress, Elysia, and she agrees, they have been most active and she wonders if the court will even close down its doors after Mid Summers this year!

So if you are feeling the presence of the other folks in your lives somehow? If things keep going off in strange directions, getting lost or downright whacky, then you may be in need of a tête-à-tête with the Faerie.

Elysia also made mention of some particular attention the Faerie were giving to Rosslyn Chapel these days. I find this most interesting as the Grail has been an ongoing theme all year this year and Rose Chapel of the Grail would be something to look into! What this has to do with the Faerie I have no idea, but what better way to find out than one of our Vision Quests!

Last month’s VQ with Bessie left us all completely trashed. It was probably one of the most powerful workings we have had in awhile, it was one of the most powerful Vision Quests we have done to date! Left many experiencing major Ritual Hangover! You know the work goes deep when you wake up with hang over from it! Lol

This month with the Faerie can be another of this sort of deep working. If you’ve never encountered the Faerie Court at this time of year before, it can be truly otherworldly! Ever heard of Mid Summers Night Dream? This will be in that style of approach. Potentially incorporating Guising, Shape-shifting and other sorts of re-orientation techniques followed by an encounter with the Faerie, including perhaps Puck in whatever spelling you prefer, and even perhaps the King or Queen herself, plus a litany of others that may be more personally associated with you in particular.

How this VQ may also include some insight into Rosslyn Chapel and why there is such a hub bub about it right now is yet to be revealed!

In general about these workings; These popular monthly Vision Quests, serve to help awaken the Sight and Gifts in the Seeker, offering a number of opportunities to connect with and receive gnostic insight into your Fate, Path and practices, both within your mundane world as well as your Magic.

*Please Note: As attendance is limited due to space, and these workings have become so popular, we have found ourselves turning people away because the RSVP is filled to max. Only some folks did not show up on the night and people had been turned away when we could have accommodated them. So to be fair to those who want to come, we are going to have to require pre-payment in order for you to reserve your spot!

Also, please bring a salty snack to share for after the Vision Quest.
These can be powerful workings, so we recommend that you please be prepared to stay and engage in the after-Quest discussion while you ground and perhaps receive clarity on any insights you may have received.

Cost is $23.00 $3.00 discount for cash.

Faery Foods, Offerings & Altars

This Sunday, June 11th at 2pm!

Faery Foods, Offerings & Altars

Summer Solstice is just around the corner. This is one of the Wheel of the Year times often very much linked with the land of Faerie. So how would you celebrate them? How can you commune with them? Or…how do you get those pesky little buggers to leave you alone!?! Distraction! Bribe them with food or other such things to bring about, at the very least, a moderate level of harmony. But what to do? What is ok to give? What do they like? Well, it’s a good thing we’re having this class now isn’t it?

Elysia has worked with the realm of faerie for as long as her parents can remember. Not just talking with them, but working with them to shift the energy wherever she goes. Finding a balance between giving too much and not enough may not be as hard as you think, or may take more thought than expected. Are you ready to jump into the world of faery?

Class is $23 per person ($20 if you pay cash. Yay! Discount!)

An Otherworldly Evening: Ritual with Orion Foxwood

Ritual with Orion Foxwood flyer

There is a saying “you cannot curse the roots and bless the fruits” and the deep, ancient underworld of the earth is its living memory, the heart we all share and the origins of the life-force. Thus, to heal the abandonment wound that sets at the heart of human suffering and its damages to our world; we must re-consecrate ourselves as carriers of the original holy blood where the three-worlds meet; and, re-consecrate our relationship to the sacred underworld known to our ancestors as Faery…. and let Eden Return.

Orion will lead us in two workings to help with this:

• Consecration of the Sacred Blood, where we will guide the eyes of our inner spirit to the entire stream of our souls journey to this point in time and we will consecrate our bodies at the mediator of the soul-stream and as the “Temple of the Sacred Blood” (the Union of Heaven and Earth), then:
• Entering the Luminous Landscape of Faery, where we will open the Well of Enchantment, descend the ancient spiral stairway into realms of the People of Peace and receive a blessing from Wisdom Waters of the Undercountry.

Gather at 7:30 for an 8pm start.

Cost is $18, discounted to $15 if paid in cash.
