Sarah will lead a deep dive into the archetype of the year: the Emperor. Join her at Homebody PDX on March 1st, 2020. Sarah will discuss different ways to work with this archetype to create structures and transformation in your world. A sometimes misunderstood energy, the Emperor’s lessons are many: this archetype can help us all get organized, make a plan, connect to our spirituality, harness creativity, and help everyone step into our personal power.
2020’s Moonbeaming Online course is here! Taught by Sarah Faith Gottesdiener, the material in the Moonbeaming Online Course has been developed over the past 13 years (by Sarah), and is founded in magic, witchcraft, mindful meditation, feminist self-help, and non-religious spirituality. Students can tailor and personalize the discussions and exercises to their own personal practice and pace. In this course, you will receive exclusive content that includes worksheets, meditations, Tarot pulls, spells, audio recordings of each class, and more.
During this course, Sarah Faith Gottesdiener aims to enhance your personal magical practice, and specifically introduce and immerse you into living with the cycles of the Moon. The Moonbeaming Online Course will help you create your own magic in your day-to-day life. This course will focus on the 5 major phases of the Moon: Full, Waning, Dark, New, and Waxing. The subtleties of each Moon phase will be introduced and analyzed, and you will learn ways to work with each phases’ energy– magically, spiritually, and practically.
All levels of practice are welcome. For some, this may be a beginning into a spiritual or magical practice. For others, this course can serve as a gentle yet immersive focus on yourself and your dreams as you go through the year. This self-study is designed to support you as you deepen your own practice and intuition.
Students interested in the Moonbeaming Online Workshop should begin the class with one or two issues or themes they’re looking to explore. Clear goals—such as self love, forgiveness, boundaries, etc.—that can be measured and tracked, are key to benefitting from the Moonbeaming Online Course. Those goals can be defined anyway but there must be a path of attainment that can be measured. We will be taking a holistic, 360-degree approach to the nuances of each Moon phase and how we work with them in our magic; each segment of the Moon phase will require an action towards your specific goal.
Students will receive over 100 pages of worksheets, supplementary material from herbalists, other amazing teachers and witches about astrology, working with your period, your lunar type, and the herbs of the moon. Participants will receive 5 exclusive + custom meditations, and 10+ hours of lecturing from Sarah Faith Gottesdiener, plus transcripts of all for those who are deaf and hard of hearing.
The classes are live, but are recorded, and all participants will be able to access them. All material is yours to keep forever.
If you choose, you will have access to an accountability buddy in your time zone.
Moon time is spiral time: there is no “right” or “wrong” way to experience or connect. This online course will ask you to make the needed changes in your psyche and life, and connect you to your mind, body, and spirit more deeply. Even if you only do the bare minimum that is required of you in this course, you will see shifts and changes in your life.
*PLEASE NOTE we will NOT be diving deeply into astrology and menstrual cycles/bleeding during this course. Sarah is not an astrologer, nor is she a medical professional. However we WILL be including supplemental materials on these topics! An astrologer will be providing a packet on your Moon sign and moon signs in general. An acupuncturist, who recently published a book on periods, will be providing content on your hormones, how to track them, and work with your period. So these topics will be addressed by those who have expertise in them.*
Materials: For this online course you will need a journal, a pen, and a Tarot or oracle deck. If you feel called to participate in spells and rituals, other materials will be needed, but these are very flexible. Materials will be hosted on HighTail and lectures on Zoom. You will need access to the internet. We do ask students have basic computer literacy to take this course (knowledge of how to download files, etc.).
Time Commitment: You will need about 2 hours a week for the class, and at least 1-3 hours additionally each week for journaling, rituals, and other self-development activities.
The recordings, meditations, Tarot pulls, worksheets, and supplementary materials are yours to keep forever. Due to the nature of the content provided in the course, refunds are not offered. We have sliding scale tuition options for BIPOC students only. A limited amount of payment plans are available: please email the studio directly to inquire at email@example.com.
