Fairy Witchcraft On-Line Intensive:
Taught by Morgan Daimler & Vyviane Armstrong
Hosted by Land Sea Sky Travel
This course is no longer live but can be ordered as individual class recordings, or as the entire series recorded, along with all supplementary materials and resources.
Fairies, Other Crowd, The Gentry, The Good Folks. The subject of fairies in the Celtic cultures is a complex one. These semi-divine mysterious creatures are often seen in the lore walking alongside our Gods and ourselves, tempting us to their worlds and ways, but who are they? Join author Morgan Daimler on an eight-week course as we start to untangle the old lore and the native legends from Victorian fables to Pop Culture modern myths and misunderstandings.
Over this course, we wish to help you gain a solid grounding in the lore and legend of Fairy, with a good helping of academics too. We will also provide guidance on how to have safer interactions with them. Our course will be composed of lectures, lived experiences, hands-on experimental practices, making tools, and finally ending in a Samhain Storytelling party around the Aos Sidhe.
When I saw that this workshop would be happening, I pestered Vyviane for months for information. I’d been feeling called to work with the Good Folk, but I wanted to do it right. The workshop was originally a weekend event, but it changed to a weekly online session, which worked even better for me. Daimler is deeply entrenched in the lore and practice of engaging with the Otherworld. Stretching things out gave me time to sit and think and absorb each lesson. The other classmates were fantastic and Daimler’s lectures were exactly what I was looking for to start my journey.

Expectations of Students
Working directly with the OtherCrowd and any magic has an inherent danger to it. As such we recommend a solid grounding in the lore and some basic training in grounding, guides, and cleansing before going into the supplementary materials. Morgan and Vyviane can help you with that, and we highly recommend you stay in touch with the instructors if you run into any challenges.
This course and all Land, Sea, Sky Travel events are held in accordance to our hospitality statement.

I’ve had a very difficult time writing this review. I find that I do not have sufficient language to express my appreciation and admiration for Morgan’s scholarly and magical achievements. Morgan’s brilliance shines within this course and certainly beyond into their writing and community service.
