My Trio of Talks for the Equinox, Samhain and Yule

I'm giving three magical online talks this autumn. The first is this Wednesday, 23 September, at 7pm UK time. It is part of a series of live author talks and discussions hosted by Moon Books via Facebook Live and is completely free. The second is part of Into the Dark Nights: An Autumnal Gathering organised by Magickal Women Conference, on 17 October, and the third online event is my official launch party for my new book, Pagan Portals - Guided Visualisations. That will be on Facebook Live on December 11. Here are the full details:

Wednesday 23 September: Moon Books Live Talk and Discussion 
The Equinox is on 22nd September this year. That’s the spring equinox in the southern hemisphere, but the autumn equinox for those like me in the northern hemisphere. I’m going to talk about equinox candle magic for balance, and also post-autumn equinox poppet magic to help keep cheerful as we head into the darker half of the year. There'll also be a visualisation on the autumn garden. The talk will start at 7pm, UK time, and you can find the details here: 

Saturday 17 October: Guided Visualisations: Taking the Dark Path
On the first day of Into the Dark Nights: An Autumnal Gathering organised by Magickal Women Conference, I'll be giving at online talk at 4pm on Guided Visualisations: Taking the Dark Path. Guided visualisations can be thought of as a bit light and fluffy. They sometimes get categorised with general mind, body, spirit practices as forms of meditation with spoken words to help participants stay mindful as they journey towards enlightenment. However, in witchcraft, guided visualisations can take us along dark paths to face our fears. The ancient mythological tale of the descent of Inanna into the Underworld is often turned into a guided visualisation for those seeking second degree elevation in Initiatory Wicca. It requires those journeying to leave behind all status, all riches, and all the comforts of life; to strip the soul bare and to face death herself. In this presentation, I will be talking about visualisations as part of modern pagan witchcraft and offering two guided journeys into the dark. Tickets for the full weekend of talks are £50, and for a single day are £30. You  can find out details of the full programme and book tickets here:
