Unconscious Magic: Or, why you should never call Dorothy Morrison a Bitch.

Murv Sellars

What happens when you take two touring Pagan authors, put them together at an event, mix well, and then just for a fun toss in an insane person with an insane problem? Well, if the authors are Dorothy Morrison and M. R. Sellars, they turn it into a workshop…
The legend of the Bobblehead Lady took place at a national gathering known as the Real Witches Ball in October of 2002. The story began
simply enough as a mere phone call to the organizer of the event, A. J. Drew. Little did anyone know that the call would spawn a series of incidents that have now gone down in the annals of Pagan festival history. The legend has now become its own workshop often presented by Sellars, and at times Morrison. But, whenever they do an event together, you are almost guaranteed to hear them both tell it “tag team style.”
As with any good story, this fish has grown. The incidents, unbelievable as they were to begin with, are now larger than life… But that’s okay. This is a legend, and that’s what’s supposed to happen. Still, the workshop teaches some important lessons as well as demonstrates the concept of “unconscious magick” in spades. We hope you learn something when you watch this, but even if you don’t, you should at the very least be entertained.


Merge With Caution: Stories from the road and Q&A

Murv Sellars

Humorous anecdotes and horror stories about what it is like to be on the road, touring, as a Pagan author with other notable pagan authors. This is also your chance to ask questions on just about any subject. Answers provided are NOT guaranteed to be true and maybe complete fabrications created in that moment. After all, Sellars IS a fiction writer.


Death – It’s not just a Tarot Card

Christine Ashworth

All those tarot decks. Oracle decks. Crystal collections. Your tools, your cloaks, your books, your sacred objects. Not to mention your home, car, bank accounts.

It’s the one topic no one wants to discuss, but it’s the one topic everyone will eventually face – death. What are the steps you should take now to ensure your family won’t go through confusion over your estate? There is much to consider, and the more you consider it now the better off your loved ones will be when the time comes.

I’m no lawyer, but I have had twelve people, close family, die in the past forty years. Some deaths were easier than others, and I have stories to share and wisdom to pass along. Won’t you join me?


Meditation for Everyone

Christine Ashworth

Anyone can meditate. It can be as simple as two minutes of breathwork, eyes open, or as detailed as a 45-minute body scan. In this workshop, I will share many forms of meditation, including moving meditation, that are suitable for most ages. Much of our time together will be spent in meditation, with discussions as well.


Ask Me Anything

Christine Ashworth

I’m here to answer your questions. Book related, writing-related, Tarot related. Ask me questions about my brother Scott Cunningham. Or about Ethony’s Awakened Soul Coven. Want me to pull a Tarot card for you? I’ll do that, too. Want to know how to bring your idea into clarity? We can do that. My personal favorite meditation apps? I’ve got you.

Working with Elementals 101

Eddie Presley

A beginner’s place to start work with elementals as spiritual beings. While many in the craft see the elementals only as archetypes or good ideas, I work with them as actual spirit beings alongside fae and spirits of place. This workshop is a stepping stone to a larger walk with the elemental spirits that are often eager and ready to aid in a witch’s magickal practice.

Appalachian Folk Magic

Byron Ballard

With its gnarly roots in the British Isles, the German Palatinate, and in indigenous American tribal practice, Appalachian folk magic is characterized by its hands-on and practical approach, as well as its use of available materials. Though it has come down to us through a Protestant Christians filter, this system is easily adapted to modern Pagan sensibilities.


In Search of Endarkenment

Byron Ballard

Sometimes our work or curiosity leads us to places we probably wouldn’t go if we thought about it for five seconds. Over the Borderlands and into the Realms? Standing in front of a Thing You Know Not Of? Not all things in the dark are to be feared nor all things in the light trusted. Come and learn some tricks of the trade.


Practical Ancestor Veneration

Byron Ballard

Do you dream you fly? Do you wake tired in the
morning from a full night of active dreamwork? We’ll work with the wild geese—the Gabble-ratchet—as we learn to travel the dreamscape and step out of ordinary time and into the realm of the ancient calendar, into the realm of the Ancestors. From Ancestor altars to grave decoration, this class explores the possibility of modern, heart-centered Ancestor veneration.
