Cauldrons bubble and Pumpkins be lit!

Ah Fall is really here!

To say that I am gearing up for the Winter Season is an understatement, Halloween/Samhain my personal start to the Holiday Season and since I love the Winter best of all, I unofficially begin it just a tad early. Okay I should just be quite about that since many of you hate snow - why I don't know, but you seem to. Tarot Beginners Classes are really perking along. With what I hope will grow, just a little bit, not too much as I limit the seating, the Tarot Study Group is up and running also. Now ALL things divination (okay maybe not all - YET) are coming to Spellbound of Nyack and prospering and most importantly being enjoyed. Lenormand, has been going strong for a few years now, remember Spellbound of Nyack is the original place in all the Metro NYC area to teach this, and now we will be moving into the realms of Kipper Cards as well. Kipper Cards are seen as a somewhat "cousin" to Lenormand as in they are both an Oracle cards that use their own specific system to read them and they both consist of 36 cards - after that they differ greatly. Kipper is situational and carries to it more of a "flow" of a reading - it is very much like reading the boxes of a comic strip as a narrative if you will. All in all it is fascinating to learn and Spellbound of Nyack is going to be on the cutting edge of this system as well. Why? Well I happen to be editing what will be the definitive book on Kipper Cards by my friend Toni Puhle. "The Card Geeks Guide to Kipper Cards" should be available at the end of this year, start of the next and it is going to be a MUST buy. Toni shares information in this book that only a true Kipper Card reader would be able to and she does so in direct fashion. So stay tuned for when this book is released - I plan on having copies here in the shoppe to sell direct to you ! I will be adding a page to the website all about Kipper - look for it soon and see if Kipper calls to you, then you can watch for the next Kipper Cards Beginners course - I think that will be in November by the way. A nagging question is in the back of my head that I must ask you all and if you would like to respond, I hope if interested you do, would you like me to find a teacher to bring here to Spellbound to teach Astrology? I am hopeless with that subject myself but there seems to be a small and growing interest so I thought I should ask. And yes, look below, Reiki Level One Certification is back this month. For those of you who have been looking for an easy to learn yet powerful healing technique and/or a way to work with energy in a way you can practice for self healing, this is it. I personally believe everyone should receive Reiki One and Two training as the doors these classes open to you are not limited to just healing work. And if one day I get around to offering Karuna Ki, which basically adds more symbols to the Reiki system (that is such a brief comment), you will truly learn how to empower yourself as well as almost any system of energy, manifestation or magic you choose to. At one time I was called "The Reiki Witch", it might be time to bring that nickname back!?!?! And - yes I threw in a Meditation Evening for those of you who have been asking for that to return. And now onto the Calendar - I did mention in the last newsletter that this month would see a new Gypsy Cards Beginners Course, do to difficulties obtaining the correct deck to use during the class this has been indefinitely postponed until I procure the decks we need - so sorry!! October 2017

Friday the 13th - What Better Night for a Guided Meditation? I invite you to join a Meditation Group to Reconnect, De-Stress, Relax and Unwind. The evening requires no yoga poses or prior experience with Meditation. From 7:30PM until approximately 8:15PM we meet and just learn to reconnect with ourselves and detox after a hectic week. This is also a great way to connect with like-minded people and the only requirement is to please attend on time.
