Sustainable Elements of Magic

Here's a little save the date info if you're interested...


What: Elements of Magic

What does connecting with nature look like in the city? What can we learn about our nature from the nature of an empty lot? How can we embody our spiritual beliefs through sustainable living techniques?

In this three day intensive in the Reclaiming Tradition (www.reclaiming.org) we explore the practice of magic and earth-based spirituality by working with the magical and mundane aspects of the Elements of Magic: Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Spirit. Magically we'll learn and use techniques such as: visualization, sensing and projecting energy, chanting, trance, creating magical space, spellcraft, and ritual. On a more mundane level, we will apply what we know about natural systems to live in right relationship with the earth by finding out how sustainability can weave into our daily lives.

When: Friday Oct 3 evening
Saturday Oct 4 afternoon
Sunday Oct 5 morning

Where: Chicago, IL, Specific Locations TBA

Cost: $75 - 150 sliding scale, work/study available.

Who: This intensive is team-taught by Jennifer Byers and Sayre Vickers

Jennifer Byers

I’ve lived in Chicago since 1995, but Tennessee (where I was raised) runs thick in my blood. It is there that I began my love affair with the green world, one that I have continued to nurture and expand even in a city of concrete and steel. I hear the urban world beckoning, begging us to remember its wild, fey, magical places. In these places the elements sing. Won’t you join us in dancing with them?

I delight in finding ways to lighten my step on the land and to serve it in love. I am thrilled to get to share my experiences with Sayre and all of you as we learn and open together to the elements of life.

Sayre Vickers

I live in Chicago, with two bicycles, two cats, and an elm tree named Sheela Na Gig. In the midst of the metropolis I seek for the wild richness of the edges - the bounty of edible ‘weeds’ in empty lots, the sparkling delight and generosity of urban feyfolk, conversation with trees that have watched the city spring up around them.

I have been working to manifest urban permaculture in Chicago for the last few years and am excited to be working with Jennifer to weave my applied experiences of urban sustainability into the magical/spiritual context of this intensive.

We have family in Chicagoland and visit in the summer and winters. Bummer the class isn't around X-mas time or I'd make a point to be there in support of you and your gorgeous green self! Of course... Chicago could be buried in snow at time of year.

I think its awesome that you are promoting green magic for city folks. I'd LOVE to pick your brain on this, will email of list! I am excited for you and can't wait to hear all about it!
