This workshop teaches Geomancy, a divination done by the casting and interpreting of
sixteen figures that are then interpreted through a chart methodology. It is a
practice that originated in the Middle East/North Africa and spread to Europe in the
early Middle Ages. As a divinatory form, it is quite distinct in results and feel
from any other form of divination (such as tarot and astrological divination). It
tends to be more calculative in its process and result in answers that are more
specific and less abstract.
The workshop is interactive in that it involves my supervision over people casting
their own geomancy charts once theyve learned the basic method. By the end of the
class I would like the attendees to be able to do on-the-spot skrying using
geomantic figures, and to know the techniques of casting a full shield chart and the
12 house astrological chart.
I have handbooks that will be available and can serve as quick reference to many of
the tables of correspondences and techniques found in Geomancy.
The way I teach is in line with the popular books on the subject by John Michael
Greer (The Art and Practice of Geomancy) and Skinner (Geomancy in Theory and
Practice), not to mention 16th century magician/occult writer Henry Cornelius
Agrippa. I also practice Geomancy in some new ways developed from years of
experience and hundreds of readings, and I will teach these practices and concepts
in addition to the more universal methods.

I am a bit obsessed with Geomancy and can honestly say that I am one of a rather small number of people in America who actually divine regularly using Geomancy for the general public. I would really like to see this wonderful form of divination restored to its former Renaissance era glory 🙂
