As the year comes to a close, I thought it would be a good time to give everyone an overview of what we have been up to quietly in the background at Quareia.
The journey of magic that touches real power is a long and convoluted road that triggers ever deepening awareness of inner powers, consciousness and our own inner spirit and outer body. That long journey takes us down many roads of learning, not just about magic, but about power, energy, and our bodies.
As some of you who are studying the Quareia magical course will have come to realise, there is a point (and often more than one point) when you hit an energetic wall. You cannot seem to make progress, you are exhausted, demoralized, and feel like a failure. You are not. (...)
Someone posed a very relevant and interesting question to me lately, and it did occur to me that I have never really discussed this ‘on the net’, particularly in respect of Quareia training, so I thought it would be a good idea to cover it here. (...)
Well, what fun it has been working on the Arbatel lessons….. a text that drove me and Michael the editor totally nuts with its antics. So much so that it deserves a blog post, plus missing star information….

Spring came pretty fast and almost unnoticed in the factory of Quareia. My original intention was to have the apprentice section writing finished by the spring equinox and I managed it with one day to spare (phew). And what a bumpy time March was! So much astrological power was flying around along with the solar eclipse and the equinox itself: the final ending of the apprentice section closed with a powerful full stop and a strong sense of magical completion.
