Noon - Childrens Ritual with Rick Bailey


Noon – 2PM- Queen Up! ~~~ Angela Kaufman

Metaphysical meets modern to help women reconnect with their powers of creativity, confidence, passion and abundance.

This workshop is an introduction to the Queen Up! system, which teaches modern women to recognize and embrace the four elemental energies within themselves and in nature, as personified by the Tarot Queens. Although this program borrows from the Tarot on an archetypal level, it is not a Tarot class. It is a reinvention of archetypal cosmology designed to help modern women expand beyond society’s labels and live in connection with their intuition and inner wisdom.

As a result of this workshop, participants will:

  1. Learn to recognize and harness the four core powers within so they may thrive in any situation.
  2. Gain practical tools to align with the forces of love, abundance, confidence and intuition.
  3. Learn which archetypal energy has shaped personality, attitudes and motivation, and discover how to tap in to their latent sources of power to ride life’s changing tides.

 All levels are welcome, this system teaches tools for managing personal energy combined from many different traditions with a fresh modern twist. The workshop is appropriate for both professionals and the general public.

Participants will learn through discussion, experiential exercise, homework assignments and guided meditations. 

Course materials will be provided, participants will have the opportunity to purchase a Queen Up Kit (book, cards and access to MP3 meditations and a coupon for a follow up Inner Queen Session via phone at a special rate).


Noon – 1PM- To Be a Better Boss-Act Like a Witch ~~~  Misty Bell Stiers

 

Our spiritual path influences all aspects of our lives, including how we handle the responsibilities of our jobs. Being a witch has provided me distinctive insight into how to be a better manager. If Wicca teaches anything, it’s that there is value in recognizing the moments that blow us away—whether it’s a beautiful garden, a shared laugh, or even a really productive meeting. Join me in discussing how the tenets of Wicca align wonderfully to what it means to truly connect with those you work with and in turn create a better business outcome.

2:30PM – 3:30PM-Writing Your Own Story-Finding Magic in Modern Times ~~~  Misty Bell Stiers

Our world is full of "shoulds" and "wills" and outside expectations.... but what happens when you quiet all those outside voices to discover what is true in your own heart? Come join me in discussing how letting go doesn't have to mean leaving behind, and how to deal with the uncertainty that comes with finding your own spiritual path. You are not alone. Unfathomable joy and peace are just around the corner. Magic awaits.
