About the Current Challenge
The September 1st magical challenge forces us all to remember what we have forgotten. Remember that time when your mind just absorbed information, and everything generated wonder. For this challenge, you are to work with a new system, set of techniques, or use any new experience or hobby to force yourself into the beginner’s mind and use it. Get excited about your magic again. Ideally you would use the new techniques or paradigm does as often as possible in the 30 days. Now, that said, you still need to do some sort of meditation/energy work or magick every day, but self-reflection counts. Click here to see how the challenges work and how you can succeed!
- Research Start: August 1st.
- Unbroken Magic Start: September 1st – October 1st
- Award Ceremony Via Deeper Down the Rabbit Hole: Some time in November
