The SoulPath Fellowship – 6 Week Course, Recorded Live From 3/14/21 – 5/16/21

Soul Path the house of twigs thot winter clark witch business healing

(Available on a sliding scale)

This is a live course that will be available again on May 25th as a pre-recorded series if you cannot attend the live version.

The SoulPath Fellowship is designed to help creatives, healers, intuitives, empaths and
psychics create a livelihood they love! Winter has created the ultimate program to
support you in releasing your fears and doubts (aka imposter syndrome) embracing
your gifts and skills, creating the perfect container for your magic and sharing it with
the world…because honestly the world needs all the magic and heart we can bring in!
Let’s answer the call of your soul and shine your light into the world!


We’re coming into a new paradigm; the vibration the planet is shifting into calls for
the ones who can feel, perceive, understand and support those who are beginning to
navigate their way forward.


How will we do this?? We’ll release old programming, limiting beliefs and the idea of
“not good enough” so that you can reclaim your energy and step into your power. We’ll
get into your gold to see what kind of passion, gifts, skills and talents you carry within
you while also creating a structure for that magic to alchemize from the 5D into the
3D. And of course we’ll find and amplify your voice along with your unique style to
shine into the world while discovering ways to connect with the community for
inspiration and support!


It’s a 6 week program that met biweekly via Zoom for the launch. Post-launch the
videos will be available as your resource as well as email support for the duration of
your time in the program. Each month we focus on a different area for supporting the creation of a livelihood you love!


Expectations of Participants

  • Outlines for each class will be available so that you have the notes to refer to.
  • Reflection Journals will be assigned at the end of each session. These assignments must
    be submitted in the form of a journal entry via PDF before we meet in the next
    session! If you have any questions about your Reflection Journal feel free to contact me during your course.
  • For those who are eligible, a 30 min 1:1 SoulCall Coaching session is available
    and can be arranged via email.
  • I’ll also be available by email throughout the course for support and assistance.
  • I’m SO excited to be with you on this journey of discovery and empowerment!!

(Subtitles in English, French, German, and Spanish are being processed, and will be available when announced here.)

This is our second style of Grimoire making we are offering by popular request. With over 2.5 hours of step-by-step instructional video, this is one of the best ways to create your own Grimoire from the comfort of your own home. This class takes about 4-5 hours to complete with 24-48 hrs dry time in between glueing and such. With artwork or decorations, this can take much longer.

We are talking real bookmaking, with a witchy twist, but this time it will be a usable book that is intended to last for a century or more.


Custom make your own and choose from different materials available. You will learn how to stitch your paper, cut, and glue up your book. This will be a dry bind so you can un-stich it when you are finished and re-use the precious leather again. 


If you purchase a kit separately from Queen Meb, choose from linen (vegan), cowskin, or goatskin. We have them all in black, and sometimes other options as well as colored linen thread.

Design your own embossed, or customize these grimoires to match your own personal style and practice. We offer ideas on how to do this along your grimoire making experience.

Intuitive Tarot, Pre-Recorded Live Event, 4 Part Class

Intuitive Tarot live online the house of twigs event class THOT witchcraft

(Now offered as a sliding scale course)

Reading Tarot Course: Live Adaptation
If you have ever wanted to learn tarot or have been studying and haven’t quite gotten comfortable with your readings, than this course might be for you.

The Intuitive Course and why it’s different-
We do things a little different than most of the other tarot classes out there and focus on the reading aspect of tarot before memorization. Your instructor, proprietress of Q. Meb has been reading for 27+ years and works with up to 10 decks at once, varying in style and personality. She worked for the psychic friends network and has had over 200 tarot students. She also is the head mistress of the House of Twigs: School of Ritual where her online tarot courses are also available.

To take this course you must own a tarot deck and a small book with meanings. *Please do not use a Rider-Waite book as this is “old white dude energy” we want to avoid. Any style of deck is acceptable as long as it has major arcana, and minor arcana. It is ok to use a Rider-Waite tarot deck but please avoid the tradition RW book.
We have a few decks available to test if you would like to expand experience. Decks are also available for purchase and we carry mostly independent published decks with a small selection of creative, main-stream decks.

This is a 4 part series that was recorded live, and cost $75. This is a discounted price because it has been pre-recorded. Live events costs more because they take up more time from each instructor.

Normally this class will be a 2 hr event, with practiced readings throughout the class. To navigate this as a live event, we shorten the lecture series to 1 hr+ each evening and then one on one time with the instructor, with some homework and Q & A ability.

Spells, Cursing, and Removing Hexes – Pre-Recorded Event

the house of twigs online class live even erika fortner the house of twigs curses hex spell bind

(Now offered as a sliding scale course)

An important continuation of this series of Awakening the Witches will deal with the darker aspects of spell work, cursing and what it means, as well as removing hexes. We take a neutral approach to this discussion as it is something that each person must approach with their own personal compass. Traditional methods, charms, and simple items will be discussed for harnessing the energy within and around yourself, for this type of work as well as those I practice myself. We will also talk about things such as hereditary curses and previous life concepts and how to navigate these topics as they suit you and your own practice. Some topics discussed are:

What is a binding, hex, and curse?

Black Magick vs. White Magick and why these terms don’t work

Herbs and Oils to help remove curses

Following a hex (energetic chase)

Common Deities to assist

Road Opener

Poppets

Candle Magick 

Jar Spells  

Sigil Work

Visualization and Meditation

Un-Intentional Curses & Generational Curses

Practicing a Hex

  • All people (gender, race, sexual orientation…) are welcome here but this class isn’t a great event for kids unless they are taking the course and the parent has given approval. 

COMING SOON: Crystals, Power, and Programming: Working with Crystal as an Energy Worker

Crystals Power and Programming energy work Reiki Witch

Come learn about crystals, their properties and how to work with them to awaken your inner witch. I find this to be one of the most natural ways to connect with energies in crystals without having to rely on anyone else.

I this course I suggest what my personal best methods for cleansing each crystal despite many believing the moon or the sun will recharge a crystal. Most of the time these are not the right method. Crystals grow very slowly, deep within the ground!

This class comes with details on different crystals (over 70+ different crystals that I also carry in my store and work with personally), and a discussion of working as an energy worker with their metaphysical properties. We will go over cleaning, charging, and breaking the “wive’s tales” of working with crystals, as well as having a small ritual and meditation of initiation. I am a master level Reiki practitioner as well as work in other healing modalities.

**You do not need to be a reiki practitioner to learn or use energy in this class.

**A suggested collection of my favorite crystal reference books is also included at the end, but not required to take this course.

COMING SOON Tarot Memorization Course: Major Arcana

major arcana tarot memorization class the house of twigs erika fortner

This course is not yet available for purchase and will become available soon!

Do you struggle with knowing the meanings of your tarot cards?

This is a drop-in style, tarot study course for those wanting to learn more about the meanings of their tarot cards, and can be for any level reader and any gender identity. We use gender expression for symbology, but not as a representation of gender. Tarot has a lengthy history since the 15th Century and although they are created to represent various aspects of people, they really are more symbols of the spirit and psyche and can apply to any person.

This course goes beyond the use of your own tarot book that comes with your deck. We ask you to participate a bit differently than just normal readings so you can commit it to your long term memory.

Use this as an interactive tool to learn the meanings of your cards instead of or in tandem with reading through the book on your own. We will use the Rider-Waite symbolism at times but will not be using their meanings. Anyone that knows me, understand that I feel like this is an “old white-dude energy deck”.

However, at the end of this class you should be able to read the symbolism in any deck.

**You may also divide ALL of your decks you own into their corresponding suits and compare each one for identifying the differences amongst them. This is a great way to learn across many systems of tarot.

*Throughout the course we will reference many decks and examples of readings, deck combinations and spreads. We are not endorsing or negating the use of any tarot decks out there, these are just my personal decks and ones that I use in professional readings or have enjoyed using. No money is made by showing images of these decks, it’s just because I like them myself.

Magickal Ink Making from Medieval Grimoires

the house of twigs erika fortner ink making grimoire

This course offers the instruction and process of making your own Magickal Ink for your own magickal use, spellwork, and sigil magick.

The ink recipes are based on creating a custom gall and india ink based on old recipes from medieval times. One in particular was meant to banish evil spirits. We take this base recipe and give room for you to change it as it suits your intention. This is NOT the only way to make your own inks, but it is just one recipe. 

  • I talk a little bit about my experience in the fine art world, the finishing world in custom cabinetry, and exploration of materials. I know a lot about materials!
  • What are the differences between a paint (including acrylic, oil, tempera, and watercolor), dye, and ink?
  • What are some traditional methods of using plant material or tannin based dyes/inks?
  • We of course have a compendium of recommended materials to work with such as resins and plants, and we also discuss how to customize an extraction to use this as an extra magickal layer.
  • You will learn how to make a traditional Gall Ink and your own base material of a Vitrol of Mars. Customizations are suggested for making this your own receipe.
  • You will also create your own recipe for an India ink from natural resin, gum arabic, pigment, herbal extractions, and essential oil.
  • We of course have a compendium of recommended materials to work with such as resins and plants, and we also discuss how to customizie with plants to use as an extra magickal layer.

Queen Meb, our retail location in Portland offers purchasable kits to go with with course. You can buy them in tandem or by themselves. Access to this course is for a lifetime.

CANCELED: Luciferian Witchcraft (Part 2)

This is a continuation of my Luciferian Witchcraft Course (Part 1).

This Course in its entirety is perfect for anyone who wants to (or does!) practice Traditional Witchcraft and live by the pillars of Lucferianism.

This is my version of Lucferianism, a practice I have molded and formed for over 10 years now; I have been a practicing Witch for 20.

The Philosophy  itself is considered ‘New Age’ to some, it’s anything but in my opinion; the veneration of Lightbringers has existed since the beginning of time.

This portion of the Course is where we dive deep into the more taboo aspects of Luciferian Witchcraft, and dive deeper into our own Psyche. You will be required to face the deepest recesses of your mind, and test the limits of your Magickal capabilities.

As with my Shadow Work Course, this Course requires you to be an active participant in your own experience; this Course requires you to rely on yourself–the cornerstone of Luciferianism is Self, after all.

Be prepared for a lot of reading, thinking, reading some more, and then putting it all into practice.

May the light of the Black Flame guide your way.

In Nomine Luciferi!

In Nomine Draconis!

**COURSE OFFERED IN TWO PARTS–YOU PAY FOR PART ONE AND UPON COMPLETION, YOU WILL PURCHASE PART 2 SEPARATELY**

INCLUDED IN TUITION COST:

-Rituals and Methods of Protection, Defensive, Grounding, Banishing, Evocation and Baneful Magick

-An overview of Deities, Archetypes and Spirits of Luciferian Witchcraft

-An overview of Ancestral Magick, the LHP and how it relates to Luciferian Witchcraft

-Practical Application of Serpentine Gnosis

-Personal Recipes and Spells

-Exercises, assignments, tips and/or practical advice with each lesson

-Direct access to Instructor via e-mail for support, counsel, and questions

Hedgewitchery, Brews, & Potions

the house of twigs school of ritual

(Now offered as a sliding scale course)

This course is a look into the connections of folklore herbalism ( the traditional beliefs, customs, and stories of a community, passed through the generations by word of mouth) and magickal herbalism and how to incorporate that knowledge into making your own potions.

An insight into points brought up in the class can be found here on The House of Twigs.

As a maker for most of my life, I have learned about working with plants and ingredients intuitively, working in the high-end cabinetry and finishing world, attending one of the most prestigious art schools, working with one of the top artists in the world where I had a chance to work with some of the top reputable art conservators around, and then moving onto having my own skincare and magickal brand, Keven Craft Rituals.

This class is a blend of combined knowledge, and basic recipes that you can then intuitively make your own. It gives you a basis for how to use magickal herbalism in simple things like cooking and magickal oils and then permission to move outside of a common recipe that doesn’t resonate with its purpose or intention.

Introduction to the Lenormand and Cartomancy – Pre-recorded via zoom

Lenormand Cartomancy the hosue of twigs witch school divination course

Have you ever been interested in learning the Lenormand but don’t know where to start? This is the class so many of you have requested

!  Lenormand was originally known as the Cards of Fate and a game made famous by Marie Anne Lenormand. It is now used as a cartomancy deck, aka a fortune telling deck. It builds answers from sentence structures so we will discuss this and how to read different types of spreads, timing, interpretations, etc. It is a unique system with lots of information out there but not many accessible places to learn. it is excellent to be used in tandem with other decks and has strengths unique to its deck style.

You can hear me talk about Lenormand quite a bit on this podcast The Real Witches of End Times (episode 16).

When:  Friday, April 1st, 8th, and 15th 7-9 PM 

*You must own your own Lenormand deck (Any Lenormand Deck, brand, design) or purchase one before the class begins. –

-We will start where the previous class left off so you will want to come to all of these, as we will not repeat information.

– All people (gender, race, sexual orientation…) are welcome here but this class isn’t a great event for kids unless they are taking the course and the parent has given approval.-There will also be small, reasonable homework each week, to help you practice at home.
