The Black Heart Pentacle: an Introductory Workshop

Events

black heart

“The Black Heart of Innocence is both a metaphysical concept and a state of being. It exists within us in some form or another, yet a balanced, healthy relationship with it needs to be cultivated. Once realized, the Black Heart is the unfettered connection with everything. I am in the state of innocence when fully connected to the life force. When I am centered, connected to the earth and running energy through my body, I am accessing this state without thinking about it. Connected, we are honest, for there is no need to lie when we can simple be. This tool, this state, this energy, is held in the shape of the heart because the heart is the pump for the life force. The heart feeds all the parts of my body, as the life force feeds all of creation.” (Thorn Coyle, Evolutionary Witchcraft, p. 251)

Join Amoret BriarRose and Boneweaver for an introductory workshop that have created, the Black Heart of Innocence Pentacle!

NOTE: This is an intro workshop for a pentacle created by Bone and Briar, the Black Heart of Innocence Pentacle. This is not a workshop for the Black Heart Feri Tradition. Bone and Amoret are not affiliated with the Black Heart Feri Tradition.

Gathering of the Guardians (Feri)

Reclaiming Witchcraft has roots in the Feri tradition. Some of our Pentacles overlap and we use a lot of the same energy-shifting practices. Bone and Briar priestesses, Feri initiates and local mentors will be offering a day-long workshop about the Guardians of the Feri tradition that is beginner-friendly.

Feri practitioners and energy-workers alike! Join Amoret BriarRose & Boneweaver on Saturday, May 19th from 9:00am – 9:00pm in Pittsburgh, PA for a day working with the Feri Guardians!

Discussion, chanting, and energy work in community.
