Sacred Wood Wands

I've been working on placing an order for more of the sacred wood wands we carry at Radiance, and thought I should write a little bit about them & post a photo or 2 here. The wands are handmade in rural Wales, by the Talog Witch, a woman who has been studying and teaching sacred Celtic traditions for decades. Her work is exquisite. All of the wands are made from "gifted" wood. She never cuts a living branch, only using fallen ones. Some of the wands have copper spirals wound around them, some are plain with simple carvings, and some are wound with crystal lithics. All are one of a kind. All of the wands have handwritten descriptions with traditional meanings of the wood as well as energies specific to the particular wand. You can stop in to see what we have, or if you are too far away, we can take some individual photos to help you select the wand that is yours.

Divination Journaling with Jill Althouse-Wood

Divination is a means of communication with the divine forces of creation. Journal writing becomes a powerful implement in the toolbox of this communication. Through the twin processes of divination and journaling, the seeker comes to recognize patterns in the past, recognize the present moment, and shift paradigms that shape the future. Find ways in which your journaling practice can release fear and foster your intuition. This class is appropriate for all levels of writers and seekers. A fun introduction to concepts or a more in-depth exploration: Your journey will be a personal one. Bring a journal. Additional supplies will be provided.

Jill Althouse-Wood will facilitate this 2 hour workshop at Radiance, 9 W Grant St in downtown Lancaster, across the cobblestones from Central Market. Call 717-290-1517 to register.
