7/20/17 Ceremonial Breathwork: Claim Confidence Workshop

July 3, 2017

When I was an undergrad at dance school, most of the boy dancers would really claim their confidence. Many of the boys could barely turn a pirouette or point their foot and still they’d get out on the floor to do their combinations all like, “Watch this!” At the same time, often girl dancers with years more experience, able to turn five pirouettes without batting an eye, would mutter about their own imperfections, not wanting to draw attention to themselves.…

7/31/17 – Magical Praxis: Trust Yourself (Divination 1 Workshop)

July 2, 2017

You see a bunch of psychics and they all tell you you’ll get the thing you want and then… you don’t. Every five minutes you get a new sign that you and your beloved are supposed to be together buuuuut… s/he doesn’t return your phone calls. You have a strong intuition that you should do a certain thing — move to a new country, quit your job, talk to a specific agent about your book — but when you do……

Hey Jealousy! — Oracle Appears in The Millions

June 15, 2017

Morrissey wasn’t wrong when he said, “We hate it when our friends become successful.” I don’t think there’s a creative person alive who hasn’t felt that pang when one of their friends lands some big show, or some grant, or some great publishing deal. Jealousy double hurts because a) you want something you don’t have, and b) you feel guilty for envying a friend who finally got something THEY wanted. If this experience sounds familiar, you need to read this…

Workshop: Writing Is Magic – May 13, 2017

May 8, 2017

Many artists create themselves. We are born middle class, or broke. We don’t choose our nationality, our gender or our race. Even though I’m sure many folks I know would consider me New Age, I don’t believe we choose our parents in some pre-birth akashic social contract. We get dropped into life from the mysterious Beyond. Our karma was created by our ancestors, we don’t get a choice in it. When we arrive here on planet earth, our only recourse,…

To Hex or Not To Hex

February 24, 2017

You’ve probably seen the viral article going around about hexing Trump tonight at midnight EST. A hex is a magical working performed with the intention of causing someone harm. It’s essentially a psychic assault. Most witches I know don’t do hexes. The idea of assaulting someone, even an enemy, just doesn’t seem that appealing. Witches tend to love pleasure and have better things to do with their time — like protesting, practicing Tantra with their lover, talking with their bestie…

2/27/17 Magical Praxis: Crystal Kink

February 20, 2017

  Crystals find you when you’re ready. In my case, like every good witch, I liked crystals. In New Age shops, I flirted with translucent milky green calcite, made of the same stuff as mollusks. I’d fondle aragonite, fingering its russet star clusters and then coyly walk away. But there comes a point in every art witch’s life when she tips from a mild crush on crystals to a full blown stalker level obsession. That’s when you know crystals have…
