Appalachian Folk Magic class – SOLD OUT
August 10, 2019 @ 7:15 pm - 8:45 pm$25.00
The people that settled in the Appalachian mountains were influenced by their Celtic heritage and folklore that blended with the magic of the Cherokee people.
These healers of wounds, tellers of fortunes, bee charmers, and water witches didn’t bother to take on grand names or titles. To them, their divine gifts came from God above and was used in everyday life to heal the sick, soothe the soul, and protect your family from those who meant you harm. They knew how to get spirits out the house, to watch the stars to determine when to plant their crops, and were master herbalists and midwives.
In this class we will explore the everyday magic of these mountain people and how their ways were influenced by other traditions as well as how they contributed to other well-known paths. There will be a slideshow presentation and a goodie bag for all participants. The last time this class was taught, it sold out within days and an encore class had to be scheduled an hour later.
$25.00 – 90 minutes – limited to 10 students
