A Year And A Day Beginner Lessons

I am going to add to this as the year goes on. This is something my son and I are working on together.

My aim with these lessons is to spend about 30 minutes per week explaining the absolute basics. Once we get into grounding and meditation, I am hoping he will also celebrate the Full Moon, New Moon, and some Sabbats with me. If he chooses not to, I am ok with that. I have always told myself that I would never force religion onto him.
