This course will be an intensive due to time constraints of the visiting Olorisa in America. She is visiting the United States briefly and I’ve convinced her to teach this course between other ceremonies and initiations she is performing. Because of that, some of the times may vary and classes my not be on consistent days Or times so Patience is requested. All classes however will be recorded so that if you are not able to make the class, you won’t miss the material. Opportunities to ask questions will be available during the live class and recorded class for the duration of the course. While the material for the class is generally learned for a longer period of time and is not likely to make you proficient in the short duration of the class, practice of the material can certainly make you proficient . The class is planned to be finished in 5 -8 days covering two 90min sessions per day.
The class will run live from June 21-25th 2021 (more days possible pending the amount of material that needs to be covered).
Morning sessions are from 10am till 11:30am
Afternoon sessions are from 2–3:30 pm
