Course Description

Magick exists in hundreds of paths and forms, but all methodologies tend to reach across the lines of what we consider to be physical; most are connected with the idea of manipulating energy, in one form or another. Practicing magick is receiving renewed attention as people have begun to realize that we all have power to create and mold our lives to our own specifications. Magick implies the human ability to work with the paranormal. Most of the uses, meanings and understandings of the nature of energy have been misunderstood, forgotten, masked, or remained hidden for centuries. Now that modern science has discovered that there is no such thing as physicality, in the old sense of its meaning, our collective interest in working with the forces of energy has been heightened.
When you complete this Magick Basics course, you will have a well-rounded knowledge of the practice of magick and how to go about setting up your own practice. This course provides a comprehensive overview of many different traditions, as well as the various forms of Magick. Divination, spells, rituals, meditations and tools will help you decide what kind of magick you are interested in practicing. With information drawn from hundreds of sources, this course is great fun, highly informative and a practical guide for those who love Magick.
