REV. DON LEWIS

Rev Don

Rev. Don Lewis Internationally known psychic reader, teacher, and author of the Witch School series.

“Soul Retrieval”

This workshop deals with Correllian Soul Retrieval, which is a somewhat different technique than the more familiar Shamanic Soul Retrieval, although both techniques have the same goal. Soul Retrieval is a powerful technique of healing and spiritual integration. As we go through life, parts of our energy become trapped and cut off from us through traumatic experiences. For some people a great deal of their spiritual energy may have become blocked and unavailable to them. Soul Retrieval releases these blockages and allows us to reintegrate the energy back into our present lives. Soul retrieval can be used to address issues from the present life or from past lives, and is an important technique for Karmic Disentanglement.  From his book “Witch School Lessons for Second Degree”

“Ritual for the Open Public”

This workshop deals with the special considerations involved in doing open public ritual. In private ritual we only have to consider what means to us and how to best adapt it to our own needs. But in public ritual there are many more considerations ranging from disparate personalities, skill levels, and expectations, to how best to deal with curious bystanders or law enforcement personnel. Based on many years of leading very public rituals, Rev. Don Lewis shares his answers to these and other challenges of holding open public ritual.  From his book “Ritual in Theory and Practice”  www.witchschool.com and www.revdonlewis.com

THE MIGHTY DEAD

Traditions across the world honor and recognize the sanctified dead-not just the ancestors of flesh and blood we knew in life – but the ancestors of our spiritual traditions, who died in a state of alignment and union with the divine. Known as the Bodhisattvas, Saints, Secret Chiefs, Ascended Masters and Inner Plane Adepts in other traditions, Witches know our ancestors as the Hidden Company, the Mighty Dead of our Timeless Tradition in the Nameless Art. In truth, they are the guiding principles of our modern tradition, as inner world priests and priestesses to the gods. They consist of our elders in the modern and ancient world, united in the ecstatic dance of the Witch’s Sabbat. Understand the nature of the Mighty Dead and how to work directly with them through ancestral altars, offerings, vision work and ritual for your own healing and evolution
