The Spirit’s Edge Shamonial Tradition brings together shamanism and ceremonial magick in the context of Witchcraft. It merges teachings, breaks boundaries, bringing these concepts into a cohesive whole. Our Temple's purpose is to be of service to the Great Work and the community, both on the physical plane/ordinary reality and the non-physical plane/non-ordinary reality. Our Temple welcomes and honors those of all traditions. We offer Public Sabbat Rituals and Salon discussions, online rituals and teachings that are open to everyone of all paths and all experience levels - all are welcome!
About our Story:
Spirit’s Edge was born on Jan. 1, 2010 in a ritual by Kassia S. Morgan’s coven. The Spirit's Edge Shamonial Tradition has been in the works since August 2011 when founder Kassia S. Morgan journeyed on the Pilgrimage to Glastonbury. Spirit’s Edge: A Seeker’s Salon was conceived in May 2012, formalized in July 2012 and initiated in a ritual August 2012.
We held our first quasi-public ritual May 2012. Our first public ritual was Mabon 2012.The tradition’s name – Spirit’s Edge Shamonial Tradition – was gifted to Kassia by Spirit in Feb. 2014. The official tradition announcement was March 2014, and you may read the announcement by clicking HERE.
Kassia brought the Tradition through from the inner planes during her weekend at a shamanic intensive of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies. She received three initiations on the inner planes. The Spirit’s Edge Shamonial Temple was formally publicly initiated on Lammas 2014.
On Sept. 8, 2014, the Spirit’s Edge Shamonial Temple became an officially recognized non-profit by the State of Missouri. We are in the process of seeking our status as a federally recognized 501C3 religious organization. Funds after event expenses go our effort to become a 501C3.
Our Temple’s spiritual community is called Spirit's Edge: A Seeker's Salon. It is a spiritual community of sharing, connection, instruction and spiritual wisdom for seekers and practitioners of all spiritual paths. We offer public rituals to celebrate the Turning of the Wheel of the Year, along with discussions and teachings to feed the Spirit that dwells within each of us. All are welcome - all experience levels and traditions! - just ask to join the community group page. Spirit's Edge was founded by Kassia S. Morgan.

I came. Life pushed me ... And I flew."

About our Mission:
The Spirit’s Edge Shamonial Temple’s mission is to be of service to the community and the Great Work. We seek to provide opportunities for individuals to discover themselves, their path, and find illumination for their spiritual journey.
We do this work through a partnership and communion with the Gods and allies in the Three Worlds – the Animal, Crystal and Plant Kingdoms; the Hidden Company; the Archangels, the Ancestors; and all Helping Compassionate Spirits of the Three Worlds.
Though we work with many gods, guides and allies as both a Temple and as individuals, we are supported directly in this work on the inner planes by the Temple of The Twelve Signs. The Temple of the Twelve Signs includes 12 Stations, each with a Goddess, God and member of the Hidden Company, for a total of 12 Goddesses, 12 Gods and 12 members of the Hidden Company. Each also has its own symbol, colors, utterance and more. The Council of the Twelve Signs consists of those deities and Hidden Company who lead the Temple of the Twelve Signs
This temple on the inner planes is led by three members of the Hidden Company. Our work is further anchored by three deities. Founder Kassia Shea Morgan received three initiations over five months, initiating her as High Priestess of the Spirit’s Edge Shamonial Tradition and Temple, and also into the Temple of the Twelve Signs and other work of the Hidden Company. All of these allies were included in the formal initiation of our Temple at Lammas 2014. We partner with the Committee of the UpperWorld and of Universal Energy. Together, we partner in the Great Work.
We also do our work through the Red, Blue and Gold Rays, as you can see them within our Temple’s sigil, which is also a healing sigil intended to bring healing both to individuals and the Three Worlds. It is also a symbol used for the work of the psychopomp. The Red is brick red in color and has associations with one of our anchor deities as well and is commonly associated with Power and Will. The Blue is royal blue in color and also has associations with one of our anchor deities and is commonly associated with Love and Healing. The Gold is temple gold and contains the blessings of the twelve signs, seen in its nine points and when combined with the Three Eyes of our Temple, and is commonly associated with Knowledge and Wisdom.
Our Temple honors those of all traditions, of all paths - all are welcome to participate with us in the Great Work.
Our hope through this work is to achieve individual awareness, manifesting it in our physical lives. Through that individual awareness, combined with the foundation of our Temple and its community, our greater mission is to bring healing to all worlds and bring forth the Garden of the Gods on Earth.
