Queering your spiritual and magickal practice

(from Wikicommons)
Happy 2020 to all LGBTQIAP+ Queer folx and their allies!

Workshop on Sunday, January 12, 2020, 2pm - 4:30pm

For the first magical/shamanic workshop of the new year, Monika Healing Coyote will be supporting the leadership and teachings of Annie Lynsen, acting High Priest of their Wiccan Coven (see BIO below for more details). This workshop was first presented at Frederick Pagan Pride Day, with high turnout from a wide range of people. Monika Healing Coyote is excited to start 2020 off by supporting as many magical and spiritual practitioners as possible (please send an email if you are interested supporting these works, too)!

For LGBTQIAP+ people, certain "traditional" aspects of various magickal practices may feel somewhat alienating. When spiritual groups and texts lean on myth cycles and ritual aspects focused on fertility and virility and use heteronormative symbolism, it becomes difficult for us to see ourselves in the magick. In this workshop, learn how myth cycles and ritual components can be adapted and viewed through a queer lens to be more all-inclusive and empower everyone, particularly people who are too often marginalized in our society.

The cost is $30 (payable via cash, check, or PayPal at the time of class). It is helpful for folks to bring a journal, a bottle of water/tea/etc., and a small snack.

BIO: Annie Lynsen is a priestess (2nd degree) and serves as Acting High Priest of the Fellowship of the Ancient White Stag, a coven of the Assembly of the Sacred Wheel. As a bisexual/pansexual, nonbinary pagan, she employs a queer lens to break down limiting binaries in magickal theory and practice, and advocates for bi-, trans-, non-binary/genderqueer-, queer-, and asexual-visibility and inclusion. She presented a workshop called "The Genderqueer Tree of Life" at the Sacred Space Conference in 2019. Learn more: https://majorarqueerna.com
