I am off to Scotland for the rest of June...but before I go, I am pleased to announce a NEW set of classes at RAVEN CONJURE in Winchester! But before I head out to do some serious dancing in stone circles, here is the list of classes that will be happening at RC!
We are working on enrollment forms...if you are interested in enrolling, shoot me an email at email@example.com. I apologize in advance if it takes me a few days to get back to you, I have no idea what the internet will be like in our little house on Skye.
Feast your eyes on all THIS pagan fun! I hope you can join us!
