Courses and Retreats

The New Registration System - Please read before you register

You’ll notice that the registration system has changed.  It’s actually easier to use, but it is different, so we’ve put together some notes to walk you through it.

Browse classes and events by clicking on the Ardantane Courses and Retreats  tab, the fourth one on the grey banner across the top of the website.  You can also browse events under Ardantane Free Events, the third tab.  Here you will find information about the regular volunteer days, Sabbat celebrations and other free events of interest to Ardantane members, students and volunteers.  In general you do not need to register for free events.

When you know which courses you want to register for, go to Courses and Retreats , the fourth item in the bar grey banner across the top of the website.  Click on Registration, which will appear when you hold your cursor over Courses and Retreats.

You’ll notice that we ask you to fill in the amount you intend to pay.  Many of our students pay for classes with Membership Certificates or Volunteer Credits, AKA Beaver Bucks.  You will need to do this before you add the class to your cart.  There is a drop down menu to help you figure out the amount you will pay.  For example,

You do not plan to use Beaver Bucks or Membership Certificates, so you enter the full amount.

You plan to use Beaver Bucks or Membership Certificates totaling less than the amount of the class, enter the price of the class, less the amount of Beaver Bucks or Membership Certificates.  (for example, the total price of the class is $60 and you have $40 in Beaver Bucks, enter $20)

You have a Member Certificate or Beaver Bucks for the full amount of the class, enter zero.

Next, and this is very important, mail the necessary Beaver Bucks or Member Certificates to Ardantane at Ardantane, P. O. Box 307 Jemez Springs, NM 87025.  If you neglect to do this, you will have to pay for the remainder of the tuition on the first day of class.

Add the class or event to your cart, just as you would in making any other internet purchase.  You will then proceed to Checkout.  The amount you entered into the system will be charged to your credit or debit card.

You’ll notice that we ask you to type in a four digit code to prevent  bogus registrations.  We are sorry to have to do this, but it is necessary just in case somebody named lfkjwpreohtqrg actually wants to register from Zaire someday.  Under the old system, the registrar had to guess which registrations were valid and which were bogus, often based on the coherence of the data.  She is relieved not to have to do that any longer.

Questions for the registrar?  Write to registration@ardantane.org

Tarot from Within with Amber K

Tuesdays, September 5-19, 7:00-9:00 pm Mountain Standard Time

Tarot from Within: The Heart of Tarot

Location: Online

There is another way to read the Tarot, a way that that does not rely on memorization or flashes of psychic insight. A way that respects and empowers the querent, drawing on the insights and techniques of gestalt psychology.

Anyone can practice this method, using any Tarot deck. Its power lies in the fact that the querent interprets each card with the help of the reader, thus “owning” the meaning of the reading in a unique way.

Amber K, Wiccan elder priestess and co-author of The Heart of Tarot, explains and demonstrates the techniques handed down from John McClimans, who is now in the Summerland.

If you love the Tarot, you will want to experience this program.

This live online class will be on WebEx; you will have the chance to ask questions of the presenter and interact with other students. Directions on how to connect will be sent to you once you register.

Spiritual Alchemy and the Philosopher’s Stone with Amber K

Tuesdays, December 5-19, 7:00-9:00 pm Mountain Standard Time

Location: Online

THREE SESSIONS: Tuesdays, December 5, 12, 19, 2017

The ancient art and science of alchemy is more than the precursor to modern chemistry: it is a technology of the sacred and a path to inner transformation, as practiced by wise ones, adepts, and magi.

We will explore the fascinating history of this art, discover the mysterious symbols in which key precepts are encrypted, and practice exercises designed to bring us closer to the hieros gamos and the Philosopher's Stone.

Yes, we will be transmuting lead into gold: the lead of our mundane and spiritless existences can pass through the fires of the athanor and become the gold of enlightenment, the embrace of the divine within.

The program will include presentation, experiential exercises, and discussion. There will be downloadable handouts with key information.

This live online class will be on WebEx; you will have the chance to ask questions of the presenter and interact with other students. Directions on how to connect will be sent to you once you register.
