Appalachian Folk Magic – ENCORE Class 5:30
March 17, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm$25.00
So many people wanted to take the Appalachian class that we’re doing an ENCORE class and repeating it the same day. While the first class that filled up right away happens at 3:00, this class follows right behind it at 5:30 pm – 7:00.
What better day than St. Patrick’s Day to learn about Appalachian Folk Magic and its heavy Scotts-Irish influence? 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.
$25.00 – 90 minutes – limited to 12 students
