The Art of the Divine: Wands, Wards, and Staffs
Wands have always evoked images of magic, mystery and transformation: from simple carved rods to ornate works of art. Known as the tool of the Magician, wands connect us to higher vibration and energy and act as conductors to help us "change consciousness at will".
A ward is a protective object, specially imbued with a particular intent or energy. More general than amulets, which offer the same protection on a more individual level, wards can be marked with power words, decorated with symbols and hung in a room to hold safe space.
If wands are symbols of our empowerment, conducting energy to help us activate change and if wards emanate intention into personal space, staffs represent our connection to the earth and help us step surely on the path towards our future. There are many tales of old which speak of magical staffs that have the ability to shift the landscape, making the way clear for forward movement and freedom. Staffs can represent one's Higher Self - that which lights the way to our highest potential.
This creative workshop introduces participants to the Magician energy, providing elements and guidance to create one's own wand, ward or staff. Basic supplies will be provided. Participants are encouraged to bring any special elements or objects they may want to incorporate.
