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!

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

– 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/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.

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…
