Progressive Magick with Janet Farrar and Gavin Bone

Progressive WitchcraftMerry Meet :)))

So I have had my eye on an extra class at Sacred Mists for almost a year now.  Janet Farrar and Gavin Bone partnered with Sacred Mists to teach a class called Progressive Magick.   I attended the Progressive Magick seminar with them and absolutely loved it. :))) The only thing stopping me from taking the class was my confidence in my abilities.  "The Progressive Magic Course was designed for those from an intermediate to advanced level who want to take the next step in their understanding of magic. Janet and Gavin would like to point out that it isnot for beginners, but for those who are already familiar with the terminology of modern Wicca and Magical practice. " After studying at the Mists for 3 years and doing a lot of personal work and research I feel as if I am finally ready.  I actually feel like I was given a gentle nudge in this direction in a dream last night.  It is an advanced online certification course so I am most definitely making a huge time commitment as well. I am working on trusting my instincts and following my path so here I go. :)

I have much respect for Janet and Gavin.  For those of you who may not be familiar they have quite the presence in the Wiccan and Pagan community.  They have Authored several books to include, Progressive WitchcraftThe Healing CraftA Witches' Bible: The Complete Witches' Handbook and The Pagan Path: The Wiccan Way of Life, just to name a few.

"The course is staged in seven lessons and the structure of the course itself is an integral part of the teaching as it uses a magical energy system and cosmology based on seven. For this reason alone it can be considered a truly ‘holistic’ course in that it brings together the many facets of magic into one understandable system appropriate to the modern age. This is what is meant when they use the term ‘progressive’ in the title of the course. They also point out that this is not a course in Wicca; unless it is appropriate they are not teaching the religious aspects of witchcraft, only those aspects related to the practice of practical magic in a witchcraft context. There are no teachings regarding Wiccan History, Coven Structure, Degrees or Initiation. What they do cover in the seven lessons are the following:
  • What is Magic?
  • The Philosophy and dynamics of Magic.
  • The Psychology of Magic.
  • Magical Laws and Magical Ethics.
  • The Four Elements in Magic.
  • Ether, Mind and Spirit in Magic.
  • How Magic Works: Using and working with Magical Energy and Magical Cosmology.
  • Methods of Spellcraft: Using Correspondences, Magical Scripts and the Creation of Thought Forms.
  • How Magic causes change in the self: The Mysteries related to Magic.
  • Spirit Forms related to Magical Practice: Working with Guides, Guardians and Gods.
Each lesson builds on the previous one to build a system you can understand and work with the course is a journey of discovery into the world of magic and witchcraft, and more importantly your part in it. This is why they have included a large practical element, which includes regular mmagical energy exercises, as well as pathworkings, which explore the magical cosmology.agical energy exercises, as well as pathworkings, which explore the magical cosmology."  (From the course description)

I'm very excited.  I will be enrolling on payday this Friday. :) If anyone is interested the course can be found here:  http://www.workingwitches.com/seminars/index.htm    If you are on Facebook you can find Janet and Gavin here:  http://www.facebook.com/pages/Janet-Farrar-Gavin-Bone/50223918805.
