THE PAGAN WHEEL OF THE YEAR




    INTRODUCTION PACK
                                    INTRODUCTION

This year long course offers to you the ability to work through nature’s wondrous wheel
of the year with help on a one to one basis and to work with like minded people. It has
been specifically designed for people who wish to experience a spiritual path of a nature
based faith. Learning as you go through each season to enhance your personal spiritual
life, which will become inspired by the turning of Nature’s cycles. Celebrating the
seasons, and the changes within yourself. It is the self that is the important aspect of this
course, understanding why you feel the way you do about certain times of the year, as
well as acknowledging the history and traditions of that sabbat also.

I am a down to earth pagan, a mother and a follower of many eastern traditions also. This
is not a course designed for people who just want to wear pentegrams and long cloaks.
There will be a great deal of introspection and hard work on your part. You will get out
of this course what you put into it. If you are already a follower of some pagan tradition,
it will give you an opportunity to look at your path with a new perspective and to deepen
your understanding of your faith and yourself.

For 2007 we will meet as close to the sabbat dates as possible on a Sunday to make it
easier for travel and work arrangements. We will be exploring the 8 major festivals of the
pagan path. The ritual outline will be mailed to you just before the date, and then the
ritual performed by everyone who wants to take part. I will not perform rituals in a
hierarchical sense, we will all be made equal, and if you wish to add to the sabbat in your
own way then I am more than happy to accommodate this. All materials will be provided
for you. The sabbats will take place either at Merlin Therapy Centre in Chelmsford or in
various places in and around this area, weather permitting. I like to try and find new
places to work continually, and it will be outdoors for the majority of the year. There
will be the opportunity throughout the year to make spell bottles, recite chants, mix
herbs, to name but a few of the activities. You will perform the rituals with accomplished
pagans as well as people new to the craft. This is something for everyone regardless of
age or experience, and you can be as active in the sabbat as you wish.

You will be required to keep a journal throughout the year not only of your sabbat
experiences but of personal record’s, this transition through the wheel of the year will
become a valuable source of information for years to come. If you need any assistance
with this then let me know.

You really need to be able to attend all the sabbat dates, but if something comes up which
means you can’t attend then you will still be posted the information and you may then be
able to perform the ritual at your own time. Please call me though as soon as you know
that you won’t be able to come to the sabbat so I can make sure you understand the ritual
and the season before the sabbat date.

Providing you have not missed more than 3 sabbat dates through out your year you will
be able to take part in your own personal dedication ceremony if you so wish, celebrating
the path that you walked over the year. The ceremonies can take place as small events
or you can invite your friends and family along as well if you want to. If you have
additional people coming this may incur some costs though, but you will have plenty of
time to talk to me about that during the year.

you to ask any questions that you may have. In the summer months when the sabbats
are going to be outside there will be opportunity to spend time in meditation for as long
as you wish after the sabbat has finished. Or meet up with friends at the venue place as
they are more than welcome to come along.

I have been performing sabbat rituals and acting as high priestess for rituals now for over
15 years. I am a holistic therapist, crystal healer, and angel therapist also. I make
bespoke pagan crafts and bath products, and have conducted Handfasting’s and
Wiccaning’s (christenings and weddings). I also conduct moon rites and other public
ceremonies, please contact me at the e mail address shown here if you have any queries
and we can have a chat. I am happy to answer any of your queries.
