conjure (v.)

late 13c., "command on oath;" c. 1300, "summon by a sacred name, invoke by incantation or magic," from Old French conjurer "invoke, conjure" (12c.) and directly from Latin coniurare "to swear together; conspire," from assimilated form of com "with, together" (see con-) + iurare "to swear," from ius (genitive iuris).

To conjure means to summons.

Our writing is made of words. Words are made of spell. We get to choose the words. With our words we create the spells. With our verse we conjure change. We craft what our bodies need. We chant what the world might need. We become the change through the formation of letters, through the spelling - symbol by symbol creating a language of our own.

Join me for a 9 day slowing down + writing workshop.

We’ll work on slowing down to really know what we want and are able to conjure - and work on writing our own spell (or maybe a few of them).

In 9 days we will show up to:

-slowing down and listening to get clear on intention and needs

-create altar space for energy to dwell and exist

-create space and time for gathering the words (spellings).

-Rewrite and bring down the words (spellings) to the essence, to potency.

-take care of yourself and your spell through intention.

-Enjoy and savor the power within your words; your spell may come out as poems, prose, lists, song. This is a creative writing class and comes from no “school of thought” on conjuring and magic — except that we all can use our words, to make art, to conjure, to bring about grand or subtle shifts in the energies around us.

-Embody the true power of collective writing, of spell writing. Feel the mycelial pathways. Reach. Stretch. Widen. Use the act of paying attention and writing what wants to come as a reclaimer of language.

-Use your spell under the full moon through ritual. Putting your words to work. Allowing them to become smoke and prayers.

This is a writing workshop, as well as a magic making workshop. This is about poetry and pose, as well about divining the power within, communing with the sentients, and marking in paper the longing of our hearts.

You will practice writing as well as trusting your own diviner being.
