Opening Ceremony: Storm Faerywolf & Co.

Witchcraft has long been associated with Faeries. Though modern sensibilities often depict them as diminutive sprites that delight children, folklore shows an altogether different picture. They are the spiritual essence of the land: creatures of light and shadow, existing just outside our normal awareness. They are uninhibited by human morality or convention, and so to some they are dangerous, while to the witch they are a source of much inspiration and power. We will begin by paying homage to the Shining Ones and join their revelry that they may guide us in learning the deeper magics that come not by human hands, but from the spirits themselves.

TAKE-HOME: A two-page flier on Faery

9:30 AM - 10:30 AM Sunday, May 14, 2017

Dominican Mesa Blanca by Candelo Kimbisa

We welcome Tata CANDELO KIMBISA and MAMA E. in opening our Sunday at the festival with a traditional Mesa Blanca. Open and welcome to all attending the festival, this Mesa Blanca will be a spiritual Mass designed to allow the spirits to give messages and guidance to the public for progression and healing.

Within the Sanse tradition, one of the central public ceremonies is a Misa, usually held within someone's home or in a small temple, they are non-denominational ceremonies as the focus of the Misa is to assist and support the community at large. For Sansistas it is important to give to the communities they are connected and involved with and the offering of a Misa is one of the many ways that they may serve their community.

Vulvamancy by Dr. Jeremy Weiss

While researching character and divinatory readings, Dr. Jeremy Weiss discovered a system for modern day yoni reading, based on ancient texts and information transmitted to him in his travels. "What is yoni reading?" you ask. Well, let's just say it's like palmistry, only "down there."

Not a hoax, not a dream, not an imaginary story, vulvamancy is a true mantic art -- and contained within these pages are eye-opening and mind-expanding instructions on both historical and contemporary yoni reading, so you too can learn how to "read a pussy."

Also featured are chapters on sacred sexuality, neo-tantra rituals, and folk magic spells for those equipped with, or worshipful of, vulvas.

Dr. Jeremy Weiss is a vascular, interventional, and diagnostic radiologist in Seattle who received his degree from Nova Southeastern University, trained at Columbia and Harvard, and has been in practice for more than 20 years.

TAKE-HOME: A brand-new 96-page book, Vulvamancy, by Dr. Jeremy Weiss, plus a sampler vial of Lucky Clover Vulva Oil.

The Potent Power of the Pendulum: Dowsing beyond Divination with Susan Diamond

Did you know you could cleanse a house of spirits using your pendulum? Pendulums in their many forms have long been an ally in conjure and witchery. But they are too often mentioned as a side note or minimized as a minor practice when they are a MAJOR tool with a broad array of applications. In this workshop, Susan is going to shine the light on this tool as not only a means for clear and concise divination, but for skills that reach beyond! She will cover the use of stones, bones, jackballs, keys and roots and how these elements affect the range, type, scope and direction of the answers that can be accessed. She will share how they can be used as spells, and even how to draw in and remove unwanted and wanted entities, in addition to better known uses such as dowsing, divining, healing, and prescribing.

TAKE-HOME: A two-page flier and two pendulums.

5:30 PM - 6:30 PM Sunday, May 14, 2017
