The Modern Witch workshops have an emphasis on practical magic and real life techniques you can use every day to improve your life.

I love teaching and I love learning! One of the greatest joys of my life is seeing people having fun learning and watching as people use those skills to develop a more balanced, joyful and on-purpose life!

Our workshops range from the general and introductory like “Discovering Witchcraft”, to the specific and in depth, like “Uncovering Your Purpose”. Most workshops require no prior knowledge of the Craft but we offer special programmes that cater for the more advanced
 practitioner on a regular basis.

All workshops are held in modern, functional environments (close to nature where possible) and include all magical supplies. In fact, most participants comment that they always walk away with more goodies than they expected!

Our Retreats are unique. We truly offer a transformational experience for your mind, body and spirit in stunning and sacred environments both within Australia and overseas. Imagine food so fresh that it’s harvested in front of your eyes, rituals under a big full moon, connecting with your body again though physical challenges, learning about gods and goddesses, receiving indigenous healings, experiencing gorgeous accommodation and the joy of meeting like minds.

In the past, we have run retreats in the Land of the Gods, Bali, in the Australian Bush and in within Madame Pele’s Hawaii, and we will be extending this to other destinations...just check the schedule. I believe that a real retreat isn’t about doing nothing, but expanding everything!

Best of all, we offer the support of an e-circle after most workshops and retreats. Participants are linked up to a virtual circle to support and inspire each other for 28 days after each workshop. This is
 inclusive in our prices and really does make a difference in the quality of your results.

If you are interested in pre-registering simply drop me an email and I will send you further info closer to the time. Pre- registration leaves you under no obligation; it just holds you a place in some of the more popular workshops.

I look forward to meeting you and making magic!

The 12 Goddesses- A Year of Goddess Mentorship @ Via ZOOM on line
Jan 29 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

goodess 3

For a long time now, I have wanted to undertake some deeper work with groups around the transformative power of the ancient goddesses, somewhat akin to the temple programmes that I have experienced. 2018 was our first intake and frankly, I think it is some of the most powerful workings I have ever facilitated. I have enjoyed working with the women individually and as a group and yes, absolutely, I was gratified to see so much real beneficial change happening over time.

It is my firm belief that working like this, with a small group and a guiding mentor and the Goddesses themselves intensively on a regular basis, can be positively life changing. Working with different streams of Goddess energy over time, in this case, a full year, means that real, measurable growth and true change can not only be observed, but enjoyed!

 
How it works:

Each month we work with a Goddess who will guide us. We will look at the mythos of this Goddess and how this Goddesses energy and power is a catalyst for her and the lives of others, in both shadow and light.

We use these lessons as trigger points for gentle but profound change and empowerment in our own lives, building one month to the next, for a whole year.

Half way through the year in July, you get a personal one-on-one session with Stacey to ensure you are on track with your intentions and pathway.

Go light, go deep, change in beauty, and transform with serious and loving guidance.

Who is this for?

Anyone who wants to feel more on-purpose, more relaxed, happier in their own skin and more in love with the life they are growing.

Anyone who wants regular support amongst a like-minded group and a mentor who will be fiercely dedicated to your growth through the power of the Goddess pathway.

Anyone who feels they would like to bust through some tightly held patterns or some old habits that have been tough to break previously.

Anyone who is curious about the power of the Feminine Divine or is already working with Goddesses and wants to go deeper into their practice in a practical way.

What’s included:

• Twelve (one per month) two hour live and interactive group sessions via the internet wherever you are.
• Email support from Stacey for your homework undertaken in between sessions
• “Goddess and Sirens” Oracle Deck
• Notes, meditations, and assignments.
• Other magical supplies.
One on one phone session with Stacey

Total investment for 12 months is: $575

Month by month payment plan is available for: $60 per month.

Please talk to Richard Martin about your options by emailing bookings@themodernwitch.com or by calling 0400345113.

Numbers will be strictly limited and first night is Tuesday, January 29, 7pm-9pm.

Dates: Jan 29 Feb 26, March 26, April 30, May 30, June 25, July 30, August 27th, Sept 24th,Oct 29, Nov 26, Dec 17.

The 12 Gods- A Year of Mentorship with the Gods @ Via ZOOM on line
Jan 30 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

gods events 1

For a long time, I had wanted to undertake some deeper work with groups around the transformative power of the ancient deities, somewhat akin to the temple programmes that I have personally experienced.
2018 was our first intake of a programme of this kind, and it was around the Goddesses and the Feminine Divine and frankly, I think it is some of the most powerful workings I have ever facilitated or experienced with a group. And what came out of this, was a need to explore and work with the Masculine Divine in the same way.

 

We are in a time where we are reforming, renegotiating and reforming our relationship with the energy of the Masculine.  The “MeToo” movement for example, has changed for many how they think about and expect their relationships to be with the Masculine energy and perhaps, we have forgotten or are looking for guidance towards what a positive an empowering connection with the Masculine looks and feels like in all areas of our lives. Whether you identify as female or male, this work has lasting benefit in your every day life.

 

It is my belief that working like this, with a small group and a guiding mentor and the Gods themselves intensively on a regular basis, can be positively life changing. Working with different streams of positive Masculine Divine energy over time, in this case, a full year, means that real, measurable growth and true change can not only be observed, but enjoyed!

 
How it works:

Each month we work with a God who will guide us. We will look at the mythos of this God and how this God’s energy and power is a catalyst for Him and the lives of others, in both shadow and light.

We use these lessons as trigger points for gentle but profound change and empowerment in our own lives, building one month to the next, for a whole year.

 

You’ll experience rituals, workings and learn from the group itself.

Half way through the year in July, you get a personal one-on-one session with Stacey via phone from wherever you are to ensure you are on track with your intentions and pathway.

Go light, go deep, change in grace and purpose, and transform with focussed , nourishing and loving guidance.

Who is this for?

Anyone who wants to feel more on-purpose, more relaxed, happier in their own skin and more in love with the life they are growing.

Anyone who wants regular support amongst a like-minded group and a mentor who will be fiercely dedicated to your growth through the power of the ancient pathways of the Gods.

 

Anyone who feels they need to or want to heal their relationship with the Masculine.

Anyone who feels they would like to bust through some tightly held patterns and old beliefs.
Anyone who is curious about the power of the Masculine Divine or is already working with Goddesses and Gods and wants to go deeper into their practice in a practical way.

What’s included:

Wild Souls Greece: The Mythos and Magic of Hellas @ Atherns, Greece
May 19 @ 5:00 pm – May 28 @ 11:00 am

wilds souls greece

May 19-28th 2019

Walk gently in the footsteps of the Gods and Goddesses in the very place that created the term ‘mythos”.

Let go and surrender to the magic of Hellas…

Hellas, the ancient term for Greece, is a place of unparalleled archaeological and mythic importance. Zeus and Hera, Artemis and Apollo, Athena and her owl, Dionysus and the Muses, Poseidon and his sparkling oceans, Hades and Persephone in their underworld, Gaia and her snowy mountains: here, all come alive in a tapestry of magic, nature and mythos.

As with all Wild Souls Retreats, you won’t be inactive, instead, like the ancient pilgrims, you will renewed be journeying through the ancient city of Athens, to swim in the sea right by Poseidon’s own temple, to the sacred heart of the ancient world Delphi, and onto the very home of the Gods and Goddesses, Mt. Olympus. We will relax, learn, connect, and perform ritual in some of the most powerful sacred sites in the ancient and modern world.

We start our sun-soaked journey in the Hellenistic capital of Athens, where we start spectacularly with a walk, ritual and visit to the world famous Acropolis. We enjoy expert insights from an archaeologist and expert on culture. Then our adventure starts proper- the next day we swim with Poseidon and receive blessings in his temple. In days to come, we travel inland into the sacred highlands to Delphi and learn about the Pythia and her oracle and perform rituals dedicated to Artemis and her twin Apollo on their actual temple site. The home of the Gods and Goddesses, Mt.Olympus, receives us next and we hike along the wild gorge paths in one of the most spectacular places in the whole of Hellas.

And all the while we experience the food and hospitality Greece is famous for. All your breakfast, lunch and dinners are included and deluxe accommodation in which to rest your head.

If you have ever wanted to experience the real magic of ancient Greece, here is your opportunity.

What’s included in your Wild Souls Greece experience?

– 10 day/ 9 night programme.

– All Deluxe Accommodation:

3 nights accommodation in the elegant The Margi in the Athenian Riviera, Vouliagmeni, Athens.

Home

2 nights accommodation at the Amalia Delphi.

3 nights at the Royal Palace Hotel and Spa in Platamonas, near Mt Olympus.

– Your Meals: Nourishing meals from our first evening in Athens through to our last breakfast in Athens. Our meals will be Greek style mostly, fresh local food, and please discuss any dietary requirements with us.

– Our activities and adventures:
As always on a Wild Souls Retreat, we immerse ourselves with the natural environment and the people who live there. As we will be travelling within Hellas to both urban and remote areas, we have the services of experts and guides who will assist us to get the most out of our visit.

Here is an outline of some of our adventures…

– We start with an early morning visit to the Acropolis which towers high above Athens city. We will do ritual here and set the intentions for our journey on the very hill that has held ceremony for countless millennia.

We will then visit the stunning new Acropolis museum. The museum displays some of the most impressive and precious ancient Greek artifacts and sacred art. A qualified archeologist guide who has taken part in major Greek excavations will accompany us.

– As we see more of the city, we will learn about the evolution of the theatre and dramatic arts from a specialist speaker from the Greek National Theatre.

-We will travel to Sounio to visit the Temple of Poseidon and swim at and do ritual at the beach honouring the God of the Sea, earthquakes, prosperity and flow.

-Travel to the Omphalos (navel) of the World, the centre of the ancient Universe, Delphi. We will visit the Museum and spend two days at this incredible area. Here you will visit the home of the famous Delphic Oracle who gave insights to King Croesus and Alexander the Great.

You will walk the ancient path from the Cave of Panas (Corycian Cave) up to Delphi itself. Perhaps the most famous place of power in the whole of Greece, the profound energies of Mt. Parnassus can be experienced with love and devotion.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corycian_Cave
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delphi

Parnassus is home to the God Dionysus and the Muses so we will ensure we have some fun in the evening!

– Perform Artemistic ritual with Stacey in the actual Temple of Artemis and make offerings to her brother Apollo, the God of Light and Music, in his home in Delphi.

– Visit and explore the home of the Gods, at the foot of Mt Olympus. We will travel to the village of Litchoro, on the east coast of Hellas, to see where Zeus and the Olympians make their home. For two days we will stay amongst the mountains and the deities. We will visit the Dion Archaeological site as well as pay our respects at the large Temple of Zeus. There are also sacred temples to Demeter, Isis and the Greek God of Medicine Asclepius.

– Experience the beautiful yet slightly challenging Enippeas Gorge Walk on the site of Mt. Olympus the way the ancients did, by foot, leaving small offerings and singing to the Gods!

-You’ll honour the Gods and Goddesses at a dawn ceremony over the Aegean Sea and visit the archaeological site of Aigai, the first capital of the Kingdom of Macedonia. Here we see the royal tombs of Alexander the Greats father Phillip II, who paved the way for the incredible expansion of the whole of the Hellenistic world.

– Our last afternoon and evening will be spent back in Athens and our farewell dinner will have a view of the shining Acropolis. Full circle!

– All transport is included during the retreat, including chartered private bus.

– And of course, a mythos-rich spiritual programme with Stacey. This retreat will involve ceremony and rituals on the sacred sites of the Gods and Goddesses. Stacey will also be teaching the traditional way, “in situ” (within the places) and so you will be learning about the mythos, concepts and doing the transformational workings within the actual places that have harboured this energy for literally thousands of years.

Nature, as always will be your teacher too, and will work it’s magic to bring you back to your most authentic self. The sea, the sky, the earth, the fire of the sun and the air of mountains will transform you.

This retreat is designed to quickly clear away the everyday, inspire your spirit, connect you with your own continuing mythos, spark your innate creativity and to bring new flow and vitality to transform yourself.

With this retreat, you will be doing quite a bit of ritual and energy work, and whilst this is optional and you need no experience, you should be open to the workings and the earth-honouring learning to get the most out of the retreat.

.
***Remember, this is your retreat- all activities are optional, but travelling progressively is not optional.***

What’s not included:

– Beverages and alcoholic drinks
– Your return flights from Australia (or where ever home is!)
– Transport from the airport to the meeting place in Athens, the Hotel Margi, and your transfers back to the airport on the last morning.
– Any activities on your free days or afternoons.
– Tips and items of a personal nature.
– Your Travel Insurance (compulsory for a journey of this type)

As always, you will be supplied with an extensive packing list and further details well ahead of time and of course the useful and beautiful gifts you have come to expect. This retreat requires an average fitness level and the ability to be able to walk uphill and on uneven and rocky ground. Please ask us about this further if you need more clarification.

Again, this is an adventurous, bespoke retreat and as such, this is a limited group only. Speak to us about single rooms if you prefer.

Confirmation of your place is guaranteed only by payment of the non-refundable deposit. Your place is not secured until this deposit is paid.

ALL INCLUSIVE PRICE: from $A 6495 twin share (international airfare not included). Single Room Supplement $1695.

Deposit is $A1500 to hold your place.

Stacey’s Latest Deck


The story of Aradia is steeped in mystery. Was she a goddess or a flesh-and-blood woman? To some she was the first witch, to others the leader of a resistance movement, and still to more, a wise teacher with female disciples. A spiritual mentor and a powerful role model for women to aspire to, Aradia travelled throughout medieval Italy and Europe teaching the ways of the Divine Feminine. More…
