 Wiccan High Priestess l Astrologer l Wiccan Ritual Construction

Mary Reeves has been practicing the Wiccan Religion, or Craft, for more than 20 years.  She is a former college English Wiccan Prayres and Ceremoniesteacher and has taught astrology.  She conducts workshops in the Denver Metro area and is a presenter at the Colorado Dragon Fest. Her personal passion is rituals construction but participates in many other Wiccan activities.

Mary will cover the foundations and address some of the mainstream misconceptions about the Wiccan craft, providing some interesting facts, terminologies and devices frequently used in their Sabbat rituals including the wide range of differences within the Wiccan communities.

Wicca, also known as Witchcraft, has been practiced throughout history. Some practices of Wicca or Witchcraft have their roots as far back as the Stone Age. This is why it is also known as the Old Religion. It’s also known as “the Craft.”

Wiccans honor the cycles of the Earth and Sky and the Earth Elements. They honor the seasons and the cycles of life and death. In short, they acknowledge the routines Earth Elementsand roles of nature and natural laws inserting themselves into these natural flows.  They perform Sabbats to honor these cycles. The Sabbats express the life cycle in the seasons, and the turning of the year.

The term “turning of the year” comes from the way they look at a year. They see it as a cycle or a circle. Never beginning, never ending, it’s an ever-turning wheel. This is why they believe in reincarnation. It will be clearer when one looks at the different Sabbats and the roles they play in the life cycle.

This will be an opportunity to get questions answered about a subject matter that is one of the most distorted, intentionally dramatized and misrepresented in the western media and culture.  The Wicca commonalities with other religions, metaphysics, homeopathy and other belief systems are quite interesting.  It represents the origins of man’s first understandings of the relationships between man and nature that has stayed around for thousands of years before other human created belief systems were created.  Much can be learned from this…
