The Magickal and the Mundane: Wisdom from Many Different Spiritual Paths

Fee: Free

Taught By: Rebekah Stephens

About the Workshop: This interactive workshop will follow my journey across the country to meet, in person, practitioners of many spiritual paths. We’ll hear about their most amazing and most challenging experiences and ways to balance or integrate the magical and the mundane of everyday life.

About the Teacher: Rebekah, founder of Sanctuary Healing Space, believes everyone is on their own journey and we are all students and teachers at the same time.
What began in 2019 as an interest in Reiki blossomed into learning to trust her intuition, overcoming her fear of divination and studying the ways of folk magic. This journey revealed to Rebekah that her calling was not tied to one particular practice or path, but to do what she does best, to bring people together so we can learn from the wisdom of fellow practitioners. What started out as an amazing virtual Full Moon Gathering with a handful of women she’d never met before grew into a podcast and is now a journey across the country to document the paths of over two dozen practitioners she’s met through social media!
Follow her journey on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and TikTok @sanctuaryhealingspace.

This class will show people the proper way to do these things with and without magical tools.

Though the coven has disbanded, its tradition lives on through all its initiates. I have taught classes on witchcraft, Gods, Goddesses, crystals, and energy work over the years. I have taught circle casting to my initiates and hope to continue teaching that knowledge as I move further into my years.
