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.;

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.

Unbinding the Spell of Forgetfulness: Faery Class with Orion Foxwood

unbinding the spell of forgetfulness

Unbinding the Spell of Forgetfulness:
Original Innocence and the Healing Heart of Faery

“Come away oh human child, to the waters and the wild; with a faery hand in hand. For the world’s more full of weeping than you will understand” (WB Yeats)

We, the global “We”-meaning everyone that embodies the aliveness of earth (human and other) are truly at the threshold of a New-Age, one that required co-creation, communion, co-existence as a unified state of being with individual expression but a unified oneness at the core, One way of viewing this is many brains, one mind. Perhaps, the species facing the greatest challenge transitioning into this living-oneness is with humanity because of its over-specialization, and a false “exile from oneness” that has infected his nervous systems set-points. This contamination of consciousness is called “the illusion of isolation” is the most dangerous infection on earth, yet its cure is a mere perceptual shift.


This planetary oneness is what will blossom earth into Eden. But the journey to this state presents humankind some radical shifts in consciousness because instead of “thinking” or “doing” but rather “feeling” and “being”. This also means retrieving, unearthing, un-binding and remembering our “original state of uncontaminated innocence. This is a state in which guidance comes from the life-force that flows through and animates our form and it is through this force that all of earth-life speaks to and through each other instinctually, intuitively and naturally with one exception, humanity and its not because we are broken, its because we needed to evolve our innovation inspired dormant nervous system first and now its time to unify our ancient capacity with our new fire-born one- and the way in is intuition and a relaxed allowing our body and its star-lit pulse (life-force) to speak as loud as our brain. we know is there. Somehow, we know its there. We know it the way a baby spider knows how to weave.


The eldest race, the ancestors of earth and its original pulse-the shinning ones, the people of peace, the Faery are our mentors and companions in this change. But we must know this….humanity must make the change or it is center-target for extinction. In this workshop, Orion will lead us into forgotten levels of enchantment to the true birth of evil to the ancient companionship with “the Angels in the Land” and the restoration of original innocence, which is the hope for humanity. In this workshop, Orion will lead us through ancient visionary pathways of knowing to the life that runs though all, share ancient lore and provocative invocations and poetry and cover topics including:

· Original Love and Original Innocence
· The Illusion of Isolation
· Abandonment as the Bringer of Evil
· The Spell of Forgetfulness-its origins, meanings and implications.
· The Spell of Enchantment and the Restoration of Innocence
· The Curse of Conditioned Love
· God’s Original Loneliness and the Sacred Melancholy
· Re-Sacredizing Rage
· Ancestral Redemption for Cross-Generational Trauma
· A revealed understanding Eden, the Tree, The Serpent and the Apple
· we know is there. Somehow, we know its there. We know it the way a baby spider knows how to
· Ancient lore on nature of Faery
· The crucial mandate for re-sacredizing the underworld.
· Ancestors of all life.
· The Re-Enchantment of the World

Angels and Ancestors class with Liz Bissette

What Does A Successful Spell Look Like?

Whether it’s called intentioning, manifesting, or casting a spell, we focus the energies of our desire to accomplish a specific goal. But do you know what actually achieving that desire will look like? Do you know if your spell worked? Are you so focused on it manifesting in a specific way that you fail to see other opportunities to the same goal, thereby sabotaging your own efforts?

A Parable and a Caution (Be Careful What You Wish For)…
A few years ago I was stuck in a dead end job where I was constantly told I wasn’t good enough. I answered help wanted ads and sent out resumes for years, to no avail. I finally decided to do some spell work to change my situation.

First I did work to change my mindset. That actually worked and for a while, although I still wasn’t happy at work, I wasn’t miserable either. I was in that state of I can’t fix or change it so I just have to learn to live with it (while still trying to find a better job).

When things at work got unbearable again I did a “job spell”. I asked for a better job. I asked for a job where I would be happier, more appreciated, and more fairly compensated. I didn’t ask for a specific job or a specific kind of job because I am qualified to do many things in addition to what I was currently doing and was willing to do something else if it would get me “something better”.

It took a while for me to realize that this spell worked also. There were some personnel changes in my office that redirected the interpersonal dynamics. So, for a while I WAS happier and although I was not appreciated in my office, there were others outside my office (and higher up the food chain) who were asking me to do more work for them and THEY were appreciative of my efforts on their behalf.  The spell worked, but not in the way I was expecting.

I did two more job related spells after I got demoted a year later. I was told I wasn’t qualified to do what I was doing after 8 years of doing it and I had to take the demotion or quit (I’m pretty sure they were hoping I’d quit). The job that I was to fill became vacant because someone else got a promotion. I did a binding spell so that my boss couldn’t hurt me any more.  It brought an uneasy truce.

Then I did a more specific job spell. I said I want a better job. I wanted a job AWAY from the company I was currently working for. I wanted a job where I was actually a member of the team and not just lip service that I was. I wanted to escape the entry-level job I had been saddle with. I wanted a raise.

Lo and behold, several months after doing that spell I was offered a transfer. I was sent to another department where a job was created for me that did not exist before. It was an office where my skills were needed because the department was being underserved by other departments who did not see their needs as a priority. This other department is about half a mile away from the office in which I was working.

See where I’m going with this? My spells were working. I don’t know why the universe has conspired to keep me within the same company, but I’m willing to go along with it for the time being. This is obviously the path I have to take to get where I’m going. This time I recognized right away that this was the result of my most recent job spell. I had to laugh at the irony.  I have almost everything I asked for (it is AWAY from where I was before) and going to work is much more enjoyable.

You never know HOW your spells will manifest. Can’t find an out of print book you REALLY want? Maybe you need to pay attention to that friend who keeps asking you to go with them to the swap meet. Want to travel somewhere but can’t afford it? Maybe that contest you saw to win a trip to somewhere is the way to get there. Love your job but having trouble with your boss? Try manifesting the perfect job FOR YOUR BOSS – an offer he/she can’t refuse – so that (hopefully) his/her replacement will be someone better suited to you (I tried that one too – maybe HIS perfect job is one where I’m not his employee anymore).

If you open your perception to the myriad ways your spells can manifest you may find that you actually ARE getting what you asked for.
