From Our Supporter: Where Faeries Live (10991-124 Street)

You can now shop for many of your Pagansupply needs from the comfort (and warmth) of your own home!  Check out the online store at Where Faeries Live at: http://www.wherefaerieslive.com/shop.php.

In the store there are a few new things that you might like to check out:

There are stone athames in the store that were carved out of local Alberta stone by Craig Babin of Tofield.

There are cloaks in the store, made of 100% cotton, and are fully reversible. Lightweight and sturdy, these cloaks would serve well at any indoor or summer ritual!

The store also received more stone “spirit” animals. Carved from dolomite (except the owl, which is lapis), these animals are a good size for “mojo” bags or to put on one’s altar. New animals: butterfly, whale, rabbit, and elephant!

Calendar

Fireside Chatshave been discontinued.  As of Sept 9, 2011 Where Faeries Live will be running Witch Craft 101 and on Sept 23 Witch Craft 201. These will be taking the place of Fireside and will be repeating in Oct, Nov, and in Dec.  Witchcraft 101 and 201 are intended for Beginners and intermediate practitioners, and the program is designed to give the participants the equivalent of a dedicant class and somewhat beyond.  Witch Craft 101 will be discussion and Witch Craft 201 will be the practical application of the discussion. Cost is $5.00 each class and does not include the materials used for spell craft in Witchcraft 201.

The Psychic Connection

The Psychic Connection is a group dedicated to the understanding, sharing, learning and the passing of knowledge on all matters psychic, mediumship, clairvoyance, sensitive and empathic abilities.

Robert and Sylvia will lead members through a series of exercises, events, psychic workshops, and discussion groups that will help develop their abilities. We will cover such areas as: meditation, astral projection, dreams, visions, spirit guides, animal spirits, the universe, energy work, communication with spirits and many other topics.

By working together, whether you are just starting or an experienced psychic, you will find the experience enjoyable and challenging, yet very rewarding.

In July the topic is “dreams”.  What do they mean?  Are they real or just dreams?  Are they premonitions? Or is it our sub-conscience trying to tell us something?  After this discussion there will be another psychic walk in Edmonton.
