April 8, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Due to the unfolding situation regarding COVID-19, this program will no longer take place as scheduled, but may be rescheduled. Future programming will be assessed on a rolling basis. Please follow our Facebook page for more updates and information. See our full statement here.


Anyone who has made a wish before blowing out birthday candles has practiced candle magic. Learn how to perform rituals, spells, and divinations to gain luck, love, prosperity, protection, healing, and happiness. Also included are tips for which kinds of candles to use, candle maintenance and preparation, best times for magic, and how to make your own candles. Included will be discussion on wearing and using crystals. If you’re just beginning to use crystals, a great way to harness their healing power is by using healing stones for manifesting your intentions and what you want to create in your life.

FREE; registration required
