An intimate All Hallows weekend with Orion Foxwood at our private, suptuous estate nestled in the rugged mountains of Chatsworth, California!
From deep within the place of enchantment, The Inner Temple sends a sacred call to all kindreds – come, let us join our spirits together as we dance the mill of bone and blood in celebration of all that has come before! Delight in a Samhaintide spent a world apart - beyond the city, on the edge of field and furrow where ancient voices beckon you to places long since forgotten...there, in the company of old loves and new friends, and hand in hand with Orion Foxwood, we shall pierce the veil of the senses and invite all good souls to join us in feast and festival in honor of the ancestors!
In addition to all of our absolutely stellar programming, we are pleased to offer the many amenities of our extraordinary Italian villa: stroll among the mighty oaks and bamboo forest or indulge yourself in the redwood soaking tub on the grand veranda! After a day of delving deeply into the great work, reward yourself by delving just as deeply into the wonders of our amazing stone grotto featuring redwood sauna, hot tub, swimming pool, steam shower, crystal garden and waterfall!
Orion Foxwood was born with “the veil” (an Appalachian term for second sight), into the rural Shenandoah River Valley in 1963, where his world was rife with folklore, ghost stories, superstition and magical customs! His father was part Lakota Native and his mother was born in the slave quarters of a Virginia plantation called “The Hollingsworth Place”, where she was midwifed and spiritually fostered by a freed slave affectionately known as Miss Granny - it was this distinctive combination of elements that formed the foundations of Orion’s unique spirituality and magical practices. Orion is a Conjurer in Southern Root Doctoring Practices, A Traditional Witch, An Alexandrian Wiccan High Priest, An Elder and Mantle Carrier for an Old Religionist Craft Line, and a Faery Seer. He is a founding elder of the Foxwood Temple of the Old Religion, co-founder of the House of Brigh, and co-organizer for the Folk Magic Festival in New Orleans. For more than twenty years, Orion has lectured extensively on magical practice and spiritual development throughout the United States and abroad. He is the author of The Faery Teachings and The Tree of Enchantment, and the subject of three DVD sets published through Pendraig Publishing entitled “Intro to Faery Seership”, “Orion and the Goddess”, and "Intro to Southern Conjure." Orion also holds a masters degree in Human Services.
