Q: What is Yoga?
A: Yoga is a general term used to describe a variety of physical, mental, and spiritual practices originating in Ancient India. All forms of yoga have the ultimate goal of achieving Moksha, or “liberation” from the Maya (illusions) of the world. The paths are many, but all lead towards enlightenment, self-realization, and inner peace. The Yoga most people are familiar with is Hatha Yoga. This includes, Asana (postures), Pranayama (breath work), and Meditation. These practices are non-denominational in nature and offer a pathway for mind-body connection, physical wellness, and inner peace.
Q: Isn’t magick and witchcraft satanic?
A: While there are people who use the practice of witchcraft for evil doing, magick is inherently neutral. You will not find any elements of black magick here at Gone Goddess. The only forms of magick and witchcraft we teach are those for personal development, honoring one’s personal deities, and amplifying manifestation energies. All techniques are ethical in nature and we do not teach methods to affect another’s will.
Q: So how can I get what I want if it involves other people?

As you come into greater alignment with your most authentic self, those people, things, and situations that will bring you the most fulfillment will be naturally drawn to you.
