The Work of the Witch: A Year of Empowerment Rituals Online
With Christopher Penczak
The Work of the Witch is a series of twelve monthly online group rituals to empower ourselves and uplift each other through our collective cooperative intention. Each month we will work a ritual to bring beneficial change into the lives of all who are partaking in the ritual. While you can take individual rituals based upon your needs, the entire cycle, in order, is designed with peaks and valleys, pushing, pulling, and churning the forces within and around us to bring true and lasting change.
All who are registered have their name specifically added to the ritual work by petition, and through online video via Zoom, those joining live or by recording will be guided through a meditative process to consciously connect to the work of the empowerment ritual. Together we are stronger than alone, and with the focus of each of us working in common cause, create lasting change for the group.
Must register one week prior to the event date to be included in the written petition.
Recording will be shared with the registered group only, and not shared outside or afterwards with others. Each is a specific point in time and space for those who held the intention to be there and contributed to the process.
Space is limited.
Full Year: $360
Individual Ritual: $35
7 – 9 PM Eastern LIVE VIA ZOOM or watch the video as you desire.

Rite of Grace, Blessing, and Protection: The Plant Spirit Rue
January 19, 2022 Online
Rue is the Herb of Grace, fashioned into the cimaruta charm of the Italian Witches for protection and blessing, and made into cleansing waters, floor washes, charms, and magickal powders. The nature of this plant spirit is to break all curses and ill wishes from the jealous, malicious and the unconscious and create a radiant shield of light helping us see the reality of the situation and the roles we play in it. Start the year off right by releasing, clearing and cleansing yourself with the grace of Rue.
Rite of Mystical Illumination: Archangel Uriel
February 23, 2022 Online
Seek illumination to better understand the mysteries of the cosmos, of magick, and of yourself by petitioning Archangel Uriel, one of the most mysterious and magickal of all the archangels. Uriel is the “light of God” and holds many roles in angelic magick, including light bearer, teacher, keeper of the element of earth, archangel of winter, of death, and the guardian of the abyss. Uriel is the angel of the hidden seed of light in all things, and when it shines the true nature of all things are revealed. Come with a question in mind and seek its answer.
Rite of Tears: Releasing Grief, Trauma and Old Wounds with the Great Mother
March 30, 2022 Online
The Great Mother, the Goddess of the Earth, Sea and Stars can help us in our healing. When held back by our grief, our trauma, and our wounds, the simple mixing of salt and water can return us to balance, released as tears or made into holy water. Come and be ready to wash your heart, your head, and your hands in the waters of the Goddess and return to a state of divine blessing in her arms. Let the Earth, Sea, and Stars heal you.
Rite of Ancestral Healing: The Seven Ancestors
April 27, 2022 Online
We live in a web of relationships, of not only blood, but of place, time, and spirit. Recognize these connections and call upon the Ancestors of Flesh & Blood; Milk & honey; Bone & Stone; Bread & Breath; Spirit & Soul; the Forgotten Ones; and the Mighty Dead. Make offerings of incense, red wine, milk with honey, simple food, bread, white wine, water, and distilled liquor. Make peace with disquiet ancestors and embrace the beloved dead. Ask for the aid, blessing, protection, inspiration, wisdom, freedom, and empowerment.
Rite of Green Healing: Herbs of Health and Well Being
May 25, 2022
Viriditas, the greening power of divine healing, the embodiment of vitality and wellness through growth first coined by famed mystical healer St. Hildegard of Bingen is found within our hearts and the heart of nature all around us. Viriditas is embodied in the gods and goddess, the faeries and angels of the green world who will respond to our heartfelt call, for our heart is also green. As the world grows green, let us tap into the blessing of health and well being through the green faeries of plant world, our wormwood, mugwort, and a variety of holy herbs in season, such as Lemon Balm, calling upon their medicine to bring us health and wholeness.
Rite of Forgiveness of Self and Others: Archangel Tzadkiel
June 15, 2022 Online
Archangel Tzadkiel, the Archangel of Jupiter is the spirit of freedom, acceptance, mercy, and benevolence. Tzadkiel is called upon to help us forgive others and to forgive ourselves, aligning us with divine mercy to atone and release all that does not serve a greater good. Let the expansive power of Jupiter expand your heart as it expands the distance between you and those who would do harm. Acknowledge your own mistakes. With this visionary ritual, let go of the mistakes of others. Give yourself the gift of freedom and grow lighter in the world.
Rite To Empower All Relationships: Romantic, Family and Friends
July 13, 2022 Online
As the Sun peaks in the sign of Cancer the Moon Mother and the oceans sway in her light, we seek the tides to empower all our connections of the heart. We seek to clean, cleanse, and heal our relationships with spouses, partners, lovers, parents, children, siblings, cousins, friends, co-workers, peers, and all our family of blood, circumstance, and choice. We will call upon the foam born lady of love to empower all of these relationships for the greatest good of all involved.
Rite of Clearing, Cord Cutting, and Protection: Archangel Michael
August 24, 2022 Online
Our journey is often described as a road or path, and upon that path obstacles are placed, blocking the way and creating conflict. Our first step in the process of resolution is to clear the way, cut the cords, and be protected, and no better ally than Archangel Michael can help us. The archangel who challenges us to be like the divine is a protector and warrior, the guardian of the element of fire and the Sun, but also a healer and a guide to souls. Ask Archangel Michael to cut the threads of that that no longer serves your highest good in this ritual to honor and commune with him.
Rite of Karmic Resolution: The Guardians of Opposition
September 14, 2022 Online
The Guardians of Opposition are the forces of response and reaction, the lord of karma and the archons of the gates. Work against them unconsciously and always be opposed. Invite them into your life, and find masterful allies, mentoring you in the process of opposition and resolution. Use the necessity of adversity to grow stronger. Through this ritual we call upon these ancient Watchers and have the opportunity to review, to learn, and to make new choices in our relationships with the past, the present, and into the future.
Rite of Fortune: Dame Fortuna
October 27, 2022 Online
Known to the Greek as Tyche, and considered a daughter of fate or destiny, or Aphrodite and Zeus, Fortuna can help us navigate the ups and down of life, perceived as luck. While she may be blindfolded, we can draw her loving attention to us through ritual, to turn the Wheel of Fortune in our favor and pour forth the Horn of Plenty. Balanced by the magnetic pull of Venus, and the expansive powers of Jupiter, call upon the Lady of Luck to make your own luck, become free from debt, and be in the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing for your own good fortune.
Rite of Magickal Power: The Plant Spirit Blackthorn
November 9, 2022 Online
Power comes from within and powers comes from nature and the universe all around us. Witches and magicians learn to bolster their own vitality as well as draw upon the powers corresponding between stones, plants, and animals with the elements, planets, and stars. Kindle the Witchfire and Magickal power in your blood and soul as we particularly call upon the ally of blackthorn, a protective and powerful plant spirit to help us manifest our goals and protect the power we gather.
Rite of Dream Manifestation: The Divine Mind, Heart, and Will
December 8, 2022 Online
We are one with the universe, a part of the Divine Mind, though guided by the connective love of the Divine Heart and our perfect purpose in Divine Will. Commune with these three powers as found inside of yourself, and throughout the universe. Dream and envision the manifestation of your purpose in this lifetime, and find the support from the universe to make it happen through this trance inducing ritual of manifestation, making the dreams of your soul into a reality.
