Rituals and practices rooted in connection to the earth, observing the moon, and honoring alignment with natural cycles abound across cultures and histories. From witchcraft to conjure, the transformative power of magic and ritual exists in all lineages. This workshop will touch on the foundations of crafting altars, creating ancestral connection, and honoring the power of attuning to the lunar cycle. Through embodied practices and exploring other magical tools, we’ll support you to feel empowered to create your own personal, magical rituals.
Please feel welcome to bring an object of significance or to write an intention to co-create an alter and be ready to bring home some new inspiration for making magic!
