Classes

In addition to community and fellowship, we offer classes.  Our classes are a blend of lecture and discussion with seekers, those new to the path, and experienced practitioners in attendance. We host a variety of topics that have included Four Cornerstones of Magick, Sabbat Lore/Traditions, Beginning Meditation, Divination, Herbal Magick and many other topics.

We are currently using a Pagan curriculum with subjects that have included –  Personal Altars, God/Goddesses, Tarot Divination, Candle Magick and many others.  

Classes are on the first and third Wednesday of each Month.  Each week we discuss topics that are independent of each other so drop in when you are able to join us.

Classes meet from 7:00pm until about 8:30pm. Upcoming classes include:

March 20th – Ostara – Discussion class about the history of this Sabbat
April 3rd – Correspondences for Personal Ritual – Participants will evaluate the use of correspondences as you construct a personal rite.
April 17th – Join us as we take a trip up the Nile.  We will be discussing a few of the Egyptian Gods and Goddesses as well as some of the Egyptian Temples that are dedicated to them.  We will also talk about how meditation and journeying up the Nile with these Deities can help open your chakra system and even take a short journey ourselves.
May 1 – There will be no class on this evening.  Enjoy Derby Week!! Happy May Day!!
May 15th – Class TBA
June 5th – Celebrate Midsummer ritual – This will be the last class before our summer break.  We will return for classes on the first and third Wednesday of August.

CUUPs is a free and open community of people who practice earth-based spiritualities. We are here for the Pagan community, therefore: There is no charge to attend Circles or Wednesday evening classes.
