The Morrigan: Irish Goddess of Transformation
November 21, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm$45.00
She is the Dark Goddess of the Irish pantheon. She is the lady of battle, war and transformation. She is raven and she is woman. She is fairy and she is ancestor. Join us for this special circle to call in the Morrigan, to journey through the veil, which is thin as we approach Samhain. We will create an elderberry and mugwort potion to nourish our spiritual and physical self, we will create the Holy Salve to give us the courage to sacrifice and be transformed. Two full scholarships available for this class for POC, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
