QUEER KITCHEN WITCH WEEKEND RETREAT

Hearth Magic & Medicine Making Weekend

Outside of Carson, WA in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest

October 13-15th, 2023

On the ancestral homelands of Chinook, Cowlitz, Cayuse, Umatilla, Yakama, Klickitat, and Walla Walla nations

 

 

Queer Kitchen Witches assemble!  What could be better than spending the weekend in a cozy cabin elbow to elbow with other queer plant people and kitchen witches making all the medicine you need to transform your daily life in to a big beautiful botanically infused ritual??? 

 

Picture this...You and a small crew of herb nerds cozy indoors while the autumn rain falls outside, brewing up herbal concoctions that will imbue your home with healing and ritual.  We will make SO. MUCH. MEDICINE.  Which means you will take home so much medicine.  Learn by doing with me in the kitchen.  See the schedule below for an idea of what we will be brewing up! 

We will also explore the truth of kitchen witching that is... how we make things matters as much as what we make.  There will be space to connect with the intentions going into the medicine we are making.  The class is a spell, the weekend is a ritual, weaving touch points of magic, connection and healing into you future daily life.  Bring an intention or two that you want to bring into the medicine you'll be crafting.

Class will take place in and around a magical little cabin that sits near a creek and a beautiful old forest out of a fairy tale.  The location is about an hour and a half outside of Portland, OR in the Government Mineral Springs Area.  We will be glamping in the cabin AKA bunk beds and futons.  It's a BYO bedding and shared rooms situation.  There is no electricity, cell service or running water.  There is heat and fireplace, as well as propane lights and vault toilets outside.  I repeat...this will be a GLAMPING weekend, way more summer camp style that luxury ski cabin vibe.

 

Covid precautions: Everyone will need to take a Covid rapid test before entering the cabin.  This is a must.  Please bring your own test.  I will bring a couple extra in case of accidents.  If your test comes back positive, you will not be able to attend class, but you will receive a full refund. You are welcome to wear masks but it won't be mandatory.

Why Kitchen Witch?

1) The fun, satisfying simplicity of making something with your hands you will use in your life scratches that deep itch for connection, agency, creativity.

2) It's way more cost effective than just buying the stuff!

3) On a deeper level, you are weaving touch points of ritual and connection to something bigger than the present into your daily life.  It integrates ritual into the day to day, mundane magic.  So helpful for the busy witch.
