Bringing the Teachings to You

Since 1999 Frances Billinghurst has been running workshops and courses on all things mythological, magickal, and metaphysical, three main interests in her life.  From an early age she has been fascinated with global mythology which led to her studying Celtic mythology for three years (1990-1994) which led her to undertaking a "Celtic Sacred Sites" tour in 1994.  She holds a Certificate IV Training & Assessment, tutored at the WEA Adult Learning (2013-2015), and has been a volunteer through the ELS Home Tutoring programme.  She has also presented lectures at national as well as international conferences since 2003, and is currently studying her Certificate III Community Services Work.
The Goddess focused workshops that Frances has been running have included:
  • Embracing the Goddess (an introduction to the concept of the Divine Feminine),
  • Celtic Queens and Warrior Goddesses (exploring both factual as well as fictional characters),
  • Healing with Hathor (exploring the various aspects of the Egyptian Goddess Hathor in order to celebrate her aspects within our own selves),
  • Exploring the Magick of Egyptian Goddesses (an introduction to nine Goddesses), 
  • Brighid's Sacred Fires of Healing and Transformation (working with the Celtic Goddess (saint) Brighid in order to heal and transform our lives),
  • her ever popular Encountering the Dark Goddess. 
More mythological based workshops have included The Land between Two Rivers (explores a selection of Gods and Goddesses from ancient Mesopotamia), Land of the Pharaohs (explores a selection of Gods and Goddesses from Egyptian mythology), Ladies of Avalon and King Arthur's Court (an exploration of the many female characters who appear within the Arthurian legend), and Call of the Wild God (the Pagan God of the forests and wild places).
Metaphysically orientated workshops that Frances has been running have included:
  • Esoteric Numerology (an eight part course working through numbers that appear in one's birth date as well as the equivalent of birth and other names),
  • Metaphysics (focusing on the Theosophical belief of the evolution of the soul and what this means in the modern world)
  • Sacred Journeying (exploring techniques of realising and developing one's innate psychic abilities),
  • Exploring Totem Animals (a journey through the four animal kingdoms in order to discover your own personal totem animals and animal guides),
  • Mystical Matters (exploring age-old techniques that the mystics and shamans of old used with respect to aiding and improving the lives of those around them), and 
  • Entering the Dreamscape (exploring the secret meanings of dreams).
Frances has also been running various meditation groups since 2007 including Monday Night Meditations as well as Meditations and Mantras

Magickally orientated workshops that Frances has been running since 1999 have included:
  • Introduction to Wicca and Modern Paganism (an overview of modern Pagan practices today)
  • The Wytch's Circle (a six to eight part course that provides an introduction of modern contemporary Wytchcraft),
  • The Wytch's Year (working with the sacred "Wheel of the Year" seasonal festivals),
  • The Wytch's Round (spell and magic crafting around the seasonal tides that make up the "Wheel of the Year")
  • Introduction to Ceremonial Magick (based around various rituals as taught by the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn),
  • Egyptian Heka (working with Egyptian styled magick)
  • Climbing the Tree of Life (introduction to working with the Qabalah and in particular the glyph referred to as the "Tree of Life" within ceremonial magick),and
  • Spells, Amulets and Talismans (exploring various spell crafting techniques as well as the making of amulets and talismans.

Expressions of interest are currently being taken for the hosting of The Wytch's Circle during 2016 as well as workshops including Ladies of Avalon and King Arthur's Court, Climbing the Tree of Life and Call of the Wild God.

Registrations of interest for any of these workshops can be made by emailing Frances of what you would be interested in attending, and she will be in touch with you once suitable dates has been arranged.
If you are not able to travel to Adelaide to attend a workshop, then if you are able to organise a suitable venue and a minimum of eight pre-paid attendees (to ensure expenses are covered), then contact Frances and discuss with her how she can bring a workshop to you.
