You’re invited to an exploration of the Spirits of Halloween with our community of creatives as we evoke the Unseen through the mediums of poetry, writing, art creation, vibration, channeling, witchcraft, and magical perfumery. Throughout this weekend experience, Dorothea and Lou will weave these fields together to create a doorway for the invisible to speak.
Some 2022 Halloween Associations and Themes we will focus on include: owls, eyes, the smell of ashes, costumes, cobwebs, faces, nostalgia, dampness, crisp, ceremony, animate, vapors, egrets, murmurations, lips, and Arrasa Con Todo (herb).
Halloween Weekend Activities Include:
Peer Collaboration and Feedback
Poetry from Beyond
Horror Writing and Film
Broom Craft (Making Spirit Cleansing Brooms for Self and Home)
Divination (Tarot and Individual Systems)
Creating a Magical Halloween Scent
