Ancestral Sorcery: The Blessings of those who came before us
Ancestral Sorcery was designed using tried and tested teachings of a surviving linage of ancestral magic practitioners. The framework provided to the student is intended to be used as a template. This groundwork will awaken the connection that you have with your Court, while also providing effective magical rituals and spells for you to add and use as inspiration for the Growth of your own Path.
Each week includes recorded lessons and ritual/spell handouts for you to practice and adapt with the guidance and teaching of your Ancestral Court. You’ll have Asphodelo to help you troubleshoot any questions, and your fellow classmates to chat with–empowering you to build a robust practice that works for you!
By the end of this class, you will have a working grimoire of magic unique to you and your own path, which you can continue to build on and hand down to your own family. You can build the foundations of a family tradition today.
