Fairytales…Ballads…Folkloric Traditions that underpin and dwell within the root foundations of the Old Faery Tradition and, indeed, of magic worldwide. This course deepens our exploration of ancestral and esoteric aspects of folkloric tradition, centering upon one Arthurian romance written in alliterative verse, “Sir Gawain and the Green Knight,” and two well known initiatory ballads, “Tam Lin” and “Thomas Rhymer.”

Like the “F.M.” Foundations course just completed, this is not an intellectual course. In “F.M. Deeper In” we will dive in with hearts-in and hands-on engaging all participants in the operative magic of folklore. 

We will work, practically, with the magical precepts of three essential and enduring aspects of the Western Mysteries:“The Green Knight”and magical ballads “Tam Lin” and “Thomas Rhymer,” in Four Online Class Meetings viaGoToMeeting from 1:30pm-3:00pm US EST on Sundays
