There are lots of articles out there about how people are using magic for “self-care” and protest in the current political climate. If you’re interested in how it’s actually done, this is the class for you.
Did you know that many famous 19th century Theosophists, Spiritualists and occultists supported women’s suffrage? Did you know that Pamela Coleman Smith, the artist for the Rider-Waite Tarot deck, also made political posters? What about that time protesters tried to levitate the Pentagon? Modern witchcraft has a distinctly feminist history, and liberation movements often have a spiritual element. A discussion of the deep historical heritage of modern magical protest will be followed by some practical techniques for keeping centered and calm when you are trying to speak up and other useful techniques for those trying to bring about positive change in the world. For experienced organizers who want to prevent burnout, those seeking ways to make their voice heard, and everyone in between.
