This June I'll be teaching a class through Magus Books in Minneapolis. The class will be in 4 parts, taking place each Saturday in June from 1pm to 2pm, and it will indeed be accessible online. Each class is $15 a la carte, or you can pick up the whole course for $50, saving you $10. I'm trying to figure out a way to host video of it after the fact, but as of right now it sounds like the only way to participate will be live at the time they're happening, either in-person or online.
Sigils, like words, carry meaning and purpose. Join me for a comprehensive course on Sigils, learn how to make them from scratch and imbue them with your own magical intentions. Learn how to utilize sigils and sigil art in your magical practice, and discover the myriad of different ways we can craft these strange and cryptic symbols. This course takes place over 4 weeks, Saturdays from 1 - 2pm Central. Each week will serve as a standalone class, and they will come together to offer you a full education on Sigils, and the tools you need to go forth with your own sigil magic.
Week 1: Variations on a Theme (6/5, 1 - 2 PM Central)
A History of Sigils and their varieties, from Cuneiform to Hieroglyphics, and into the magical practices beyond. We will explore the origins of different types of characters, symbols, signs, and sigils throughout time, and we'll discuss the context in which we use these ideas in our everyday lives.
Week 2: The Art of Sigil Craft (6/12, 1 - 2 PM Central)
Learn the fundamentals of creating sigils of any kind, learn the ins and outs of how you can imbue these symbols with meanings, and find out techniques and tips for helping to simplify your sigils, or tailor them to your specific needs.
Week 3: Sigil Magic Basics (6/19, 1 - 2 PM Central)
In this class, we will discuss the basics of how you can use sigils in your magical practice. This will cover some common approaches to activating sigils, as well as how to identify the methods that will work best for you.
Week 4: Advanced Sigil Magic (6/26, 1 - 2 PM Central)
Learn how you can incorporate sigils into your life in more discrete ways, pick up ideas and concepts for turning your Sigil Craft into an active pursuit, and learn about how to encipher complex information with Sigils. Plus, discover how you can combine various forms of sigils to create unique composite sigils, and even learn to hide your sigils within art or creative projects.
You can sign up here, so please join me this June for a fun romp exploring sigils, their history, and how to use them in your own magical practice!
