There are many ways to explain and approach Magik. Here's yet another one.The world is filled with Magik. Some places have a feel to them.
Some aromas invoke strong memories. Some objects seem to hold stories. From the right perspective, every where one looks the signs of life and consciousness can be seen and felt. The trick is to get the mind in the right frame of reference.
To me, this is the art of Magik, the act of changing consciousness, or frames of reference, at will. The various flavors of Paganism teach countless ways for a seeker to manipulate consciousness and by so doing change their world. One of the practices which I find helpful in manipulating consciousness isto use of totems, fetishes and other tools to put me in the frame of reference I need for a particular ritualor working. Some times I assign a meaning to a tool. Other times a tool teaches me how it can be use.Though, in reality, no one needs any tools to work magik, they can make work wonders when used well.
This class will explore was of finding and creating magikal tools for use in your rites.

Whittney Matlock : A modern mystic cleverly disguised as a massage therapist. A modern alchemist practicing the ancient
arts of Hermes Trismegistus. A magikal fool traveling a path with Spirit. His goal being to support the people he meets in discovering the healing of self transformation through spiritual exploration. It's not how your explore Spirit, it'sthat you explore Spirit that counts.
In a practice that has taken up more than half his life, Whittney experiments with various mixtures of healing arts, spiritual exploration, mysticism, meditation, music, trance, yoga and touch in the search for an elixir of enlightenment. He'll share his brew with anyone interested. For more fun, he'll share the secret of how to concoct your own elixir that will help you transform your life into the gold which lies within you.
He has learned many arts at the side of many gurus. Over and over again he sets out as a seeker, coming to mastery and returning to seeker again. Walking the circle over and over again to see the path from different angles and through different eyes. Now, he teaches from his experiences and insights into the many ways in which Spirit manifests Itself within and around us in every aspect of life. Whittney is a regular presenter and facilitator for local events such as Free Spirit Gathering and FSG Beltane.
Whittney’s classes are not for the faint of heart. His goal is to it get everyone involved in the action. His charm and panache will captivate you, as he pulls you out of your chair and eggs you on to discover what’s inside yourself. Take a chance, risk discovering parts of yourself that you lost track of, or, maybe, even find something in you which you never knew existed.
