seers-bandana-advertMediumship and casting are two of the oldest forms of divination on record. For centuries diviners have reached for items from their casting bags to elicit communicate with other realms.  This course unites the two practices and provides an experienced platform that safely assists diviners in penetrating the veil between the world of the living and departed. From there it will help you garner insight from those who have crossed over and mediate messages of healing and closure.

At the heart of this series is a new tool inspired by ancient casting kits and designed specifically for prompting and navigating dialogue between worlds. The Magpie Oracle Seer Charms is a casting kit of 48 metal charms, a pendulum key, and accompanying casting cloth that open communication with the Otherside.

This series is for diviners who wish to extend their practice into working with the Otherside with respect and ultimately for the benefit of others.
