The Magic of Place
Work the ground your are on!
In learning about magic it is easy to think that it is elsewhere. That somehow Egypt or Stonehenge or some other extraordinary historical place is required to achieve your goals. Perhaps we only need to wade through 5 more grimoires in ancient Greek to learn the right rituals. It is easy to think we need a temple, altar space, or fancy get up to do it effectively. There is nothing wrong with any of those things. However, they aren’t the only path we might take and certainly are not mandatory.
One off the things I have found over time is that if we work the ground we are on there is little we can’t achieve magically. More to the point there is no need for anything outside of our geography and what we can experience with our senses. Regardless of whether we live in the city or some remote mountain escape magic is everywhere. Plants sprout from the pavement as they do from between rocks by a stream. Spirits drift through all kinds of landscapes. The earth itself is beneath all our feet. Even when we are 20 floors up in a condo.
The practice of working magic from the area in which you live is sometimes called the magic or spirit of place. A term coined by Marcus McCoy. This 8 week course will take bring you in to closer contact with the land on which you live. It will help you connect with the plants, minerals, spirits and land beneath you. Teaching you how to relate to what is around you and work magic through building relationships to the forces in your area.
