High and Low Magic: A Complementary Relationship

Saturday, September 25, 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. CDT  

 high and low magic with gwendolyn reece 9 25This workshop will explore the differences between so-called high and low magic, as well as what goes into unifying them. Magic, or magick as it is sometimes spelled, refers to an indefinable force that all of us know even if we have difficulty giving it an exact definition. High magic usually refers to magical traditions that are about spiritual evolution, whereas low magic is about using magic to aid individuals in their practical lives. Wiccan High Priestess Gwendolyn Reece argues that both are important forms of magic and that each strengthens the other.

This experiential workshop includes:

  • The metaphysical background concerning the nature of magic and why it works
  • Pathworkings as an effective form of magic that can be used for multiple purposes
  • Magic to find/create your inner sacred landscape as a place from which you can do magic
  • How to find a symbol of personal protection
  • A magical experience to help your spiritual evolution
  • Workings that can be completed on your own time


Registration includes on-demand access to a recording of the workshop, which can be viewed for two weeks following the date it was presented. 

To ensure you receive your meeting link prior to the live program, please register by September 24.
