QUEER KITCHEN WITCH CAMPOUT

Hearth Magic & Medicine Making Weekend In The Woods

June 3rd-5th 2022

Near by Prospect, Oregon...unceded Takilma/Latgawa land

 

Queer Kitchen Witches assemble!  What could be better than spending a weekend deep in the woods camping with other queers and making all the medicine you need to transform your life back home in to a big beautiful botanically infused ritual???  If your answer was, "Nothing!" then let me suggest joining us for this weekend long class and campout.

 

Picture this...You and a small crew of LGBTQAI2S plant people in the woods brewing up herbal concoctions that will imbue your life back home with healing and ritual.  We will make so. much. medicine. 

 

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.

 

Class will take place in and around a magical little cabin that sits near a spring, creek and old growth forest out of a fairy tale.  We will be camping but there will be access to the amenities of the cabin (running water, bathroom, heat, but no electricity or cell service).  Pictures to the left <

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.
