Living World of Faery
Do you believe
in faeries? Your not-so-distant ancestors probably did, but
not as little glitzy people with gossamer dresses and butterfly
wings. If you want to experience the faery realm directly, this
practical intensive event is for you. A unique feature of this
weekend will be material from an 18th century journal, as published
in RJ's new book, The Living World of Faery. This material
includes the Faery Breath, physical relocation by faery allies,
Scottish seers in Virginia, and faery teachings regarding the
life of the planet. This workshop will also give you insights
and methods for further work with:
and relating to faery allies and co-walkers
and leaving the faery realm
uses of faery herbs and plants
vows, alliances and tasks undertaken
implications of long term work shared between humans and
faery and UnderWorld allies.

think of the faery tradition as being a mixture of folkloric
customs and beliefs, handed down from ancestral culture. While
this is true, there are also magical arts hidden and implied
within the folkloric faery traditions.

Hour is a Celtic and Faery ritual drama, written by the
19th century poet and mystic Fiona Macleod (William Sharp).
It tells the love story of Etain, an Otherworld Faery woman,
and Eochaid, High King of Erin. They are brought together
by the power of Dalua, the Mad One of Darkness. Etain represents
the spirit world, Eochaid the human world, and Dalua the universal
power of death and change.
early 1900's The Immortal Hour was set to music by
English composer Rutland Boughton, and became the longest
running music drama or light opera of all time. Boughton's
lyrical and inspiring music is ideal for the songs and poems
of the play.

has been exploring and developing deep inner work with The
Immortal Hour for ten years. He brings special insights
to this ritual drama through his long term work within the
Celtic Faery tradition, and his association with the British
magical order of which Fiona Macleod/William Sharp was a member.

With R J Stewart (part of his ongoing Faery
Ritual Magic series) A new workshop, open to all!
If you have worked with R J before, please invite
a friend to join this new Faery Ritual Magic workshop,
as new groups are only formed once a year. Future
Faery Cord workshops may be closed to new members
after this first event.
THE FAERY CORD is a powerful magical
aid, companion, and embodies a tradition with origins
in the ancestral past, presented now with unique
methods taught only by R J Stewart.
THE FAERY CORD stands for,
and replaces, “implements of magic”,
enabling an almost invisible method of creating
that you can take anywhere.
THE CORD can be used uniquely,
in its own right, without other forms of spiritual
or magical work, and it may also be used with the
Magic of Three Sticks, as taught by R J.
THE WORKSHOP INCLUDES: 1.Empowering a Cord: the Ritual
of Inhabitation. This is a simple ceremony
that may be repeated easily, to attune and empower
your Cord. We work at the deeper levels with this
empowering ceremony on Sunday, therefore there
no “Sunday only” attendance.
The information, techniques and (most
important) the powerful faery contacts and spiritual
forces of this gathering enable ONE SINGLE CORD
to become all of the following:
2.The Cord of Sustenance:
which Nourishes, Protects, and stands for many.
Used in personal meditation and magical work to
define boundaries, provide subtle sustenance and
inner strength, and to embody, and work as, a synthesis
of all magical tools.
3.The Cord of Connection:
which joins us to both humans and spirits. Used
in personal and group work to enable and open out
our connections to Allies, Cousins, Co-Walkers,
and Ancestors. Also works as a modulating or mediating
cord for the deep UnderWorld spiritual forces of
the Land, Ocean, and Planet.
4. The Cord of Memory:
which deepens and opens the mind. Since ancient
times, a cord has been used in connection with memory:
we will work together on some of the memory enhancing
and memory opening techniques that are possible
with your cord.
5. The Great Cord: making
and using a long-term Cord. This Cord can last your
entire life, and has many spiritual implications.
It is, essentially, the same Cord that you will
be empowering during the Ritual of Inhabitation
(above) and attuning during each session of the
workshop. ALSO: 6.Pattern Making, Boundaries
and Thresholds, Binding and Loosing, Knots.
7. The Small Cord: making
a short-term Cord for limited or one-of use.
8.Additions to the Cord:
Right and Left ends, Centre, fixed and permanent
additions, temporary and movable additions.
BRING A CORD of approximately your
own height. Any color. May be braided or woven (Great
Cord). Single strands or thin cord may be brought
for making Small Cords.See the R J Stewart Website:
You can pay for your workshop by Pay Pal direct
from the website.

The Cord is the most effective and powerful spiritual
tool that we can develop and use. It functions as, and ultimately
replaces, all other implements, assists, symbols, or magical
tools. The Cord can be taken anywhere, and used “invisibly” in
meditation, visualization, and spiritual magic. There are
many curious, often unknown, powers in a Cord!
In this second workshop in the Cord series
R J Stewart reveals further ways of working with the Cord.
You will need a woven cord, of your own height.
This is not a folkloric or historical workshop.
You will discover how to attune your Cord to inner contacts,
how to use it to work with spiritual allies and subtle forces.
The emphasis will be on intense practical forms of cord work,
both for group and individual use.

in workshop (1) The Faery Cord with R J, or completed all

THE CORD OF LIFE AND DEATH (3)
An intensive two-day workshop with R J Stewart
Part 3 of the Cord Series.At its deepest level of
sacro-magical power, the Cord is associated with
the experiences of birth, life, and death. From
the umbilical cord to the Silver Cord and Golden
Bowl of spiritual traditions, the Cord is both our
lifeline and our deathline.
In this two-day workshop, R J will teach a series
of forms (sacro-magical techniques) for working
with a physical Cord that connects to spiritual
and transformative forces. For those who have done
previous work with R J Stewart, these forms bridge
between the Faery and UnderWorld traditions, and
the Inner Temple traditions.
Subjects will include: Coming into Birth/ the birth
forces of the Lunar World/ archangelic and angelic
powers and traditions of birth and death/ the Cord
ceremony for peaceful death/ working with the death
forces of the Lunar World/ Connecting to ancestral
consciousness through the Cord/ Ascending through
the Three Worlds/ Spiritual or inner contacts at
work through the Cord.
To join this workshop you must
have previously attended Cord 2, the Faery and Spirit Cord,
or be a member of the R J Stewart Inner Temple traditions
core group. If you are not sure if you qualify, contact
us or your local workshop organizer.
This is a powerful and deeply effective workshop:
there is no “one day only” attendance.
No exceptions to this rule..
