Distance Classes with

Jenya T. Beachy

Shapeshifter Feri:  Basic Training

Shapeshifter Feri is a Witchcraft tradition that focuses first on

Self-Knowledge, Self-Healing and Self-Possession.

We strive to engage and align our

Animal, Human and Divine natures,

That we may live in accordance

with our own True Will.

We follow the cycle of the seasons,

Honor the Divine as immanent and many-natured,

And seek Beauty as a clue to where Truth lies.

We will talk and light candles and invoke Gods and Guardians.

We will have grand trance-journeys and wonderful adventures.

We may get scared but we will not be alone,

for our Gods are always with us.

The Journey Begins Mid-April  2012

This is not a beginning Wicca class.  One should have some significant magickal experience. 

There will be a rigorous interview process for potential students.

This is a 13 month distance class, offered through written material, video and audio recordings,

check-ins and in-depth interaction.

We use Skype and Moodle to enhance the learning experience.

Tuition for this class is $75-100/month, sliding scale. Scholarships or work-trades may be available.

Class size will be limited.

Contact Jenya at jenyaloves@live.com for more info.

Jenya is a Mother, Lover, Reader, Writer, Rootworker, Preacher and Teacher,

Playing on the boundaries between the Forest and the Ocean in Santa Cruz, California. 

A student of the Craft for nearly 25 years, Jenya is the originator of  the Shapeshifter Line of Feri Tradition.

Fey magick is her first love, the dark wild passion of the Bard, and

she seeks to live according to her own Divine Will and help others do the same.

Light of my life [Feb. 17th, 2012|02:50 am]
Feri Tradition Blog

desertserpent
ight of my life,
Fire in my loins

Androgynous point of all creation
Foremost, leading edge of transformation
Thrusting into attention
My god, your divine!

Light of my life,
fire in my loins

Soul as sweet as blood red jam
1000 eyes fanning havoc
I need you, i breathe you
Grab me, you have me by my heart
You never looked so beautiful
As you do now my man
I'm your little harlot, scarlet
Kiss me on my open mouth
Keep me high
Your drugs bring me close
Scary, my god, You're divine

Light of my life.
Fire in my loins

Bright world serpent
Star crowned universe
Eminence, first born
Ruler and Lord on the seven Earths
throne of heaven
Illustrious golden fleece
Grand Peacock Angel
Shine upon your rainbow fallen children

I'm gonna stay and pray with you til the end
You know every inch of my tar black soul

Light of my life,
fire in my loins
light of my life
Fire in my loins

Come bearing Truth

"the stolen child" tarot [Oct. 26th, 2011|02:13 pm]
Feri Tradition Blog

I love to fund Kickstarter projects! And this one has some elements that are likely to appeal to Feris.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/774786282/stolen-child-tarot-a-major-arcana-deck



With 5 days left, the project still needs about 50% funding -- so if you want to contribute and get your own copy of the deck, some jewelry, or some original art, now is the time! Particularly check out some of the pencil sketches under "Updates" -- I like the Death card very much, and the whole deck is full of bee imagery.

Enter at the Eastern gate of the skies
Shining above the horizon
Just below her birth stool.
Born of Rosette Diamonds

Are Hir Consorts --
Two heavenly bodies:
As stars they appear.
Lusty looking youths
drawn by affection to one another,
A brilliant pair of blue-green brothers.

Exactly alike, functioning as a pair,
And Both at Once.

Prominent feature of the early evening,
Seen in the great mirror,
Spring and Winter--

Summer and fall--
Seasons combine to yet

Accentuate the individuality of these two chiefs
Alternately approaching and receding
Revolving around one another

Like a swarm of bees.
Benignly set to keep a protecting watch upon the worlds

Quivering of misty light.
The bewitching song of the poets tongue

Is the living flesh of these heavenly bodies.
Their breath is mine to calm the mind.

Two Serpents with naked eyes
And fiery bodies

Whirling with great speed.
They twine, bend, and coil
Tightly upon each other,
Rising like a battle of light through the cracks and

Reaching for that red Rose kiss.
Bringing refreshing truths,
Brilliant in their persistence,

Low and clear they
Spread their great wings of health
Dropping medicine to the sick.
Down into the waters of the earth,

Along their path by the stones of fire,
A fine sweep that wins.

They are Hir First born:

The Great Divine Twins.

The Night Devours You


By Muninn's Kiss

Inspired by the words of an amazing girl, including some of hers



Look to the sky,
Feel the Night's presence.
Night's embrace,
The arms of Darkness hold you.
The Night envelops you,
It is hungry,
The Night devours you.
Lost in it.

As you are consumed,
You consume.
As the night devours you,
You devour.
Consumed becomes consumer,
Devouring yourself, one with yourself.
The Night and you are one.

Standing in the Void of Space,
Alone,
But not alone.
You are Night,
You are God Herself,
Nuit, full of stars.
Complete in yourself,
Unneeding,
Eternally satisfied.

The Mirror before you,
Yourself, looking at yourself,
In the Dark Mirror,
The curve of space.
Complete and alone,
Not alone.
Other.
Self.

You step towards.
She steps towards.
Night sees Night,
Embrace,
Passion.
She is you.
You are Night.
She is Night.
One.

Love, ecstasy.
Coupling, self with self.
Sex.
Orgasm.
Power.
Consumed.
Lost.

Worlds spin away,
Creation begins.
Light out of Darkness.
Let there be light.
Shaking from passion.
Vibrations between atoms.
Night, proton.
Electron and neutron,
Twins, Divine Twins.
Big Bang, Big Orgasm.
Stars, the substance of stars.
Every man and woman is a star.

When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.

q&a about Kala [Mar. 8th, 2011|05:39 pm]
Feri Tradition Blog

veedub
Q: I've been working to do at least Kabaza, Ha, and Kala every few days but I've grown quite frustrated with it all, mostly because I feel like I don't understand it. From what I gather, it's the combination of the syllable and earth energy one draws up that awakens each of the three selves. Is that right? But how do you call up the earth energy? Is it just visualization? If I understand correctly, the Ha Prayer works similarly as one draw earth energy to the feet, loins, heart, and finally, God soul. Is that right? Feeling very confused and frustrated that I'm not doing any of this right, or worse, that it's just all imagination. Any thought would be greatly appreciated : )

A: but it's not just "earth energy" from outside you, it's the energy you already carry in your body and your souls. it's recognizing what's already there in each soul. the three souls/selves are there all right, but this is a wakeup call to each of them, arousing fetch from its drowsing, focusing talker which is already awake but scattered, and invoking aid from godself. you are working with what you already have. and the ha prayer works the same way. you are rooted in the earth, yes, and you recognize that. but it grows upward as a flower grows, from the roots, through the stem, bringing forth the leaves so the plant can breathe, and then sending the breath to the heavenly flower (that same flower which "is above me"). without the earth it couldn't be done. but without the seed, which is YOU, and the water, which is practice, the earth would remain barren earth. and the "flower above me" would never bloom. THAT is the work of this god, which is also you.
