Embodying the Witch: A Workshop for Transformation
Saturday, October 17th, 2020 |12:00 - 1:30PM EST | 9:00 - 10:30AM PST
$13.33 Exchange | TIX HERE
The witch has been misunderstood, vilified, objectified, misrepresented and feared throughout history. Possibly – just possibly the witch is finally having a return where in some parts of the world it is now safe again to be a witch.
How do we define the witch? What is the origin story of witches?
There are so many different kinds of witches, so much history and different lineages to recognize and honor. Both “Witch” by Lisa Lister and “Waking the Witch” by Pamela Grossman are recent publications that teach us much.
My working and shapeshifting definition of a witch is: a person connected to their innate healing abilities (using these capabilities on themselves and if they choose on the behalf of others), believes in and uses magic and alchemy through intention, presence and reverence, respects and learns from animals, nature and Mother Earth and other wise beings while also communing with the sun, moon, stars, planets and unseen entities and acknowledges the sacredness in life, death and rebirth.
Your definition might be different. The witch meets us where we are. What’s important to know is that when we call in this energy of the witch and take on her/his/their mantle in our physical world, we change, transform, even transmute. Because the witch, if nothing else, is powerful and unapologetic. The witch is connected to the physical, emotional, energetic, mental and spiritual. This full-dimensional connection to all parts of ourselves releases conditioning that may keep us small and obedient, creates revolutions, uprisings and healings!
In this workshop, we will connect with the vitality, empowerment, confidence and insights of the witch. The new moon occurs the day before in Libra. On Saturday for our workshop, the moon will have moved into Scorpio. As the moon is growing, this is the perfect Zodiac guide to help us connect with what’s under the surface of ourselves and give ourselves permission to honor our own intensity and intuition.
Love and light are great. Yet they’re only one side of the scale. What wonderful creatures grow in the dark? Just about everything if you think about it. Let’s discover what hidden (or maybe you already connect with them) powers you have within through guided meditation, spell casting, prayer, archetypal guidance and shaking out our bodies. We will call in, connect with and celebrate THE WITCH.
Bring all the parts of yourself, pen, paper and any helpers that assist you in holding space and tuning in.

Mystic Resistance with Lucile Scott & Victoria Libertore
Saturday, October 28th, 2020 |7:00 - 8:30PM EST | 4:00 - 5:30PM PST
$15.00 Exchange | TIX HERE
Do spirituality and politics go together? Abso-f***-ing-lutely. Two years ago, an astrologer told author Lucile Scott that in 2020 we would either begin transitioning into a 2,000 year period of matriarchy or chaos, communal peace and love or tribal fear and loathing. And here we are in 2020, and this reading of the stars seems right on point. Mustering the force we need to heal this planet and change the cultural tide from crashing into its own doom through white supremacy and patriarchy into a torrent flowing towards revolution and true liberation for all will require the strength and shifts in perception brought by mystic resistance.
An American Covenant is Lucile Scott’s new book that weaves us through a history of mystic resistance and liberation and of five women who transcended the expected to transform America. For centuries, women who emerge as mystic leaders have played vital roles in American culture. For just as long, they’ve been subjugated and ridiculed. Today, women and others across the nation are once again turning to their mystic powers to #HexThePatriarchy and help fight the forces that seem bent on relegating them to second-class citizenry. Amid this tumult, Lucile Scott looks to the past and the stories of five women over three centuries to form an ancestral spiritual coven: Marie Laveau, the Voodoo Queen of New Orleans; Cora L. V. Scott, nineteenth-century Spiritualist superstar; Helena Blavatsky, mother of Theosophy; Zsuzsanna Budapest, feminist witch and founder of Dianic Wicca; and Marianne Williamson, presidential candidate and preacher of the New Age Gospel of Love. Each, in their own ways, defied masculine preconceptions about power.
Join Lucile & Victoria six days before the presidential election to create our own impromptu coven and tap into this force. Together we will pray, canoodle (energetically for soothing), call on spiritual support, walk you through creating your own mystic coven of people present and past to support you, do some guided meditation to ground, lift up, connect with guides, and set personal and collective intentions for resistance. We’ll also talk with Lucile about her new book, An American Covenant, and how these five mystical women in history inspire her to keep on keeping’ on. Remember resistance for you can look very different than it does for somebody else. Let’s discover what your empowered mystic resistance looks like.
A scathing queer feminist history and a personal quest for transcendence, An American Covenant opens our eyes to the paths forged by women who inspired the nation in their own times—and who will no longer be forgotten or silenced in ours.
Lucile Scott is a Brooklyn-based writer and editor. She has reported on national and international health and human rights issues for over a decade. Most recently, she has worked at the United Nations and amfAR, the Foundation for AIDS Research, and has contributed to such publications as VICE and POZ magazines. In addition, she has written and/or directed plays that have been featured in New York City, Edinburgh, and Los Angeles. In 2016, she hit the rails as part of Amtrak’s writers’ residency program. An American Covenant is her first book.
