Outside Class by Enchantments Staff:
 
 
Looking forward to the holidays full of food, laughing, children playing and family?... Or not?......
 
Find some grounding and get into your body through movement and stretch before diving into the holidays.
 
 
The Grinch Holiday Workshop
 
 
Saturday, December 14th, from 12:00pm-2:00pm
 
Ammo O'Day and Megan Ward present this first installment of a movement series through the chakras.
 
 
 
The first chakra is known as the root chakra or base chakra. It is situated at the base of or tail end of the spine. The first chakra is the foundation of the physical body; it stimulates vital forces throughout our body and assists in keeping us grounded to the earth.
 
When this chakra is balanced we feel healthy, alive, free, optimistic, happy, steady and full of vitality.
 
If the root chakra has too much energy flowing through it, this could cause selfishness, control issues, irritation and aggression.
If there is too little energy flowing through it, this can cause anxiety, lack of confidence, and a lack of motivation.
 
We invite you to get into touch with this part of your body with us through barefoot dance and yoga.
Learn exercises and stretches that you can take home and do on your own.
 
Ground your body and raise your energy!
 
Open to all levels of experience in movement.

Past Events

Open Ritual for Samhain

Enchantments will host an Open Ritual for Samhain on
Thursday, October 31st at 7:30 pm, in the backyard.
$10 donation.

Witches celebrate October 31st  and November 1st as Samhain (pronounced “sawin”). This is the most significant festival of the year.  During Samhain, we honor our ancestors and departed loved ones, particularly those who have died in the past year. Samhain also marks the end of the harvest season and is a time when the veils between worlds are thinnest. Modern-day Halloween originated from this pagan festival.

Introduction to the Tarot

5-Week Course taught by Tom

Begins Tuesday, November 12th. From 6:30-8:30pm


(Following class dates: November 19th, 26th, December 3rd, December 10th)


The Tarot is a deck of 78 illustrated cards that represent an unbounded book of the spiritual and esoteric wisdom of the Western Occult Tradition. As a tool for personal evolution, the Tarot can be used as a system for both self-exploration and meditation.
This 5-week class will present all the pertinent information that a beginning student needs to know in order to begin their own personal journey through the wisdom of the Tarot, including its essential links to the Qabalah and Astrology.
Each participant should bring a Tarot deck to the first class.
The Rider/Waite deck is recommended, although any comparable deck such as the Hansen-Roberts or Aquarian Deck is also acceptable.

$150 for entire course
Payment in full due by the first class.



Open Ritual For Mabon

Introduction to Astrology

5-week course taught by Tom


Begins Tuesday, October 1st. From 6:30-8:30pm.


(Following class dates: October 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th)


This class will cover all of the fundamentals of Astrology, so that by the end of the course, students will possess enough knowledge to continue researching and studying on their own.

Some of the topics that will be covered are: the meanings associated with the planets, signs, and houses, how to calculate and interpret aspects, as well as dispelling the unreasonable superstitions surrounding the evil powers of retrograde planets and void-of-course moons.

The ultimate purpose of this program is not to fill the students head with data, rather it is to teach each participant to think like an Astrologer so that they may experience Astrology as a way to better understand life.


$150 for entire course
Payment in full due by the first class.


Open Ritual for Lammas

Lammas is the festival of the first harvest. We are celebrating with an open ritual on Wednesday, July 31st at 9:30 pm, in the backyard.

Introduction to the Runes - One-Day Intensive

Saturday, June 15th from 11 am to 8 pm, with an hour break for lunch.

The runes are an ancient system of divination and higher knowledge, comparable to the tarot and the I-ching. They are part of the northern European spiritual tradition, although their ultimate origins remain a mystery.

In this intensive course, we will work through the entire Futhark (runic alphabet), laying the groundwork for further individual study. We will also cover key elements of Northern mythology and learn how to use runes for magic and divination. This course will focus on the 24-rune Elder Futhark, the oldest runic alphabet.

Join us for a different sort of Beltane celebration.
Kathy will lead a meditation from the Kundalini Yoga tradition. 
We'll begin with a brief guided meditation to honor Beltane. Then we will open the Kundalini Yoga portion of the evening with the Adi Mantra, 'Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo': bowing to the divine creative force and bowing to our highest inner teacher. After a few gentle warmup exercises, we will do 11 minutes of the Antar Naad Mudra Meditation. This meditation heightens our perception of inner sound, and opens a flow of creative and prosperous energy.
Juice and snacks will be served at the end, and we'll have time for sharing and discussion.


What to bring:
-A cup (to minimize use of disposable cups)
-A mat, blanket and/or cushion to sit on. (chairs will be available as an alternative)
-You're welcome to bring healthy snacks to share if you like.
