Surviving Mercury Retrogrades: Tips and Tricks for Everyday Planetary Magic with Dr. Al Cummins

Of all the planets which cast unusual conditions when stationing retrograde, Mercury is easily the most spoken of in popular culture. You may have been warned to avoid signing contracts at this time, when the planet closest to the Sun appears to be tracking backwards across the heavens. Perhaps you've been cautioned to be extra-careful about how and when you write letters or attempt to communicate with a boss or loved one.

Mercury's retrograde stationing is indeed thought to affect all manner of exchange and interrelation (particularly in matters of communications,) to potentially risk technology failing (especially in novel and fascinating ways,) and in general to scupper many of the endeavours which Mercury - Trickster as well as Messenger - normally celebrates and strengthens. 

In this talk, diviner, historian, and consultant sorcerer Dr. Alexander Cummins will share a variety of techniques for minimizing the impact on your actual life, work, and networks of the Messenger of the Gods getting flipped turned inside out and upside down. Using a mixture of historical instances of astrological remediation, planetary talismans, astral images, ritual observances, offerings and propitiations, and various other tips and tricks, this workshop will arm you with the tools you need to make the most out of your next Mercury Retrograde - not only surviving it, but perhaps even turning things to your advantage!

Meet Your Spirit Guides with Nelly Reznik

Spirit guides are beings in the spirit world who are assigned to assist each one of us with navigating our lives, whether it’s big transitions or day-to-day decisions. So why do so few of us consciously access them?

You don’t need to belong to a special group of people in order to connect with your guides. In fact, you may already be communicating with them and not even know it. If you have ever had a really strong feeling to do something or go somewhere, or have seen unmistakable signs pointing you in a certain direction in life, these intuitive hits were likely sent by your guides. Whether you have an existing relationship with them or this is all new to you, the experience of deepening your relationship and having direct contact is very possible and so rewarding.

You will walk away from this workshop with an understanding of the spirit realms, who spirit guides are and how to utilize and recognize their help effectively, and various types of guides and ways of communicating with them. Included is a meditation in which we will intend to meet one or more of our guides. Bring a journal and pen.

Tools for Empaths: Owning Your Energy with Nelly Reznik

Everything is energy, and everything and everyone carries a vibration. Those of us who are sensitive to energy and pick up on it easily need to be extra protective of our boundaries in order to minimize how much we absorb from others throughout the day. Often, we pick up other people’s stuff without even realizing it, then don’t know how to release it.

SIGNS YOU ARE AN EMPATH

  • You cannot tolerate yelling or loud noises - they seem to affect you physically

  • When you walk into a room, you can feel if the energy is off even if it isn’t visibly apparent

  • You often feel fatigued and drained from being around people

  • Your moods seemingly change very quickly for no discerning reason

  • You feel anxious in crowds 

INCLUDED IN THE 3-HOUR WORKSHOP

  • A discussion on different types of empaths.

  • An interactive lesson on what energy, vibrations, and auras are, along with their relevance to our day to day lives.

  • Various techniques on how to develop and strengthen your energetic boundaries. 

  • A guided meditation with the angelic realm, where we will gain awareness and power over our own energetic fields, cut cords of attachment, remove other people’s energy, clear chakras, and bring in protection.  

You will walk away from this interactive workshop with a clear understanding of what it means to be an empath, what your energetic field actually is and how to take full ownership of it, and how being an empath or highly sensitive is truly a gift.

Nelly Reznik is a professionally trained and tested psychic medium based in the NYC area. Although she is a natural-born medium and has been able to communicate with Spirit since childhood, it wasn’t until her own experience with loss and grief in her twenties that she began to understand and develop her ability.

Splendor Solis: "Alchemy and the Image" - with Brian Cotnoir

Splendor Solis, 1530-35 by Salomon Trismosin, is the most magnificent alchemical illuminated manuscript that depicts the Great Work, i.e. the making of the Philosopher’s Stone in 22 enigmatic images.

Over the course of 4 evenings we will open and unpack each of the 22 images and do an initial review and interpretation of the individual image and how it relates to the text and to actual 16th century alchemical practice. We’ll also consider the larger structure of the work, that is, how the images are shaped and grouped as a whole.

This evening will introduce the book, its makers and an overview of 16thcentury alchemy. We will then examine the first four images that depict the basic theories of the alchemical cosmos – the Title Page; and the three images from the two “Treatises” of the book.
