Urban Magick Workshop
There's magic all around you, even in the heart of the city. Learn how to work with your city spirit to improve life in your home and neighborhood with author Diana Rajchel. She'll use the principles of animism and her experience as a long-time spirit worker to show you how to form relationships with what's around you, and how to shift your perspective from nature-deprived to nature-connected at all times.
In this workshop you will learn:
How to call the elements out of any object around you
How to connect to both land and city spirits, and how to know the difference
How to create a thriving, dynamic relationship with your city spirit
Diana Rajchel is, for lack of a better word, a witch. She loves magick; it is her art and innovation, her mistress and her true love. But just like any of her lovers, she has issues with being tied down. She appreciates Conjure, traditional witchcraft, and both American and British Wicca. She admires and honors the paths of her ancestors as best she can, and the paths of ancestors that differ from her. Even ceremonial and chaos magick charm her. She loves them all, but she is not them or the titles that stem from them. She is Pagan and animist. Spiritualist and psychic. She's a theist that is agnostic about religion. She's terrible with arbitrary rules that are intended only to control behavior rather than serve a greater good.
She is, most definitely, a city priestess. She can engage with manifested spirits and those innate to the land. What they teach her tends to bleed far beyond the borders of established traditions. She believes that separation from spirit and nature are arbitrary limits we place on ourselves and that such separation has nothing to do with geographic location.
Rajchel (pronounced like the first name) lives in San Francisco where she runs the Emperor Norton Pagan Social. She has a psychic life-coaching practice to assist those in the fall-between-society's-cracks parts of life. She is the author of Divorcing a Real Witch (Moon Books) and the Mabon and Samhain installments of the Llewellyn Sabbat essentials series.
