Notes: I am not responsible for the content of these events except my own talk on scrying at MoonCon22. Contact the organisers directly with questions. I generally list things in the UK, especially in or near London, but some are outside that time zone. Where a practitioner is offering information about magical wellbeing and healing, this is *not* medical advice.
