Karyn Crisis'LANGUAGE OF THE GODDESS Ritual Workshop.

This exciting workshop will be part lecture, part hands-on ritual work. It's designed to give you a broad understanding of a most ancient feminine practice gifted from the spirit world that existed before Paganism and is the true origin of witchery in Old Europe. This workshop will give you an introduction of how to use ancient matrilineal symbols (which have been usurped, demoted, destroyed and perverted by the patriarchy) to create your own symbolic language for ritual that's exclusively feminine, and whose energy offers an intimate connection to the Divine Feminine. After we learn, we will put this knowledge to practical use for our own focused ritual. This introductory class workshop will give you a taste of what will later be offered as a longer course program that includes learning the disciplines of channeling and Mediumship, and working with nature as a conduit. Karyn Crisis is a spirit Medium and author of the forthcoming book, "Italy's Witches and Medicine Women".  Class fee: $15, all materials supplied.

​During this one-hour guided meditation, we’ll raise our vibrations and work with the conduits of nature: earth, air, fire, and water, to connect with our Ancestors through the practice of channeling. Be prepared to dig your hands into soil, dance your fingers through water, have your senses (physical and psychic) awakened and directed towards a more ancient time, while the rhythms of Scandinavian shamanic music merges with your heartbeat. 
Participants: please being a stone to work with, preferable a rounded rock from the street, the forest, or a park.

See video footage of an herbalist who lives on a mountaintop.

This photograph is from Sardegna and shows the healing method that Karyn will demonstrate. 

This lecture will largely focus on "categories" of Italian Witches and curing techniques such as the releasing  "Il Malocchio," various ways of using water to release illness.  Karyn will also give a Healing demonstration.
"Italy's Witches and Medicine Women,"  the name of Karyn Crisis' forthcoming book, is based on her research while living among locals in Italy (the Ligure Region of Italy, Toscana area, Benevento and Sanniti area, Rome, and Udine region, and more).  She's interviewed 23 Streghe, Nonna healers, authors (from Benevento, Rome and Naples, and Perturo Irpino, historians, museum directors, ancient folk story experts, Inquisition researchers, Benandanti, and local women from healing lineages. She's walked on remains of 2,000 year old Goddess temples, received healing treatments from Italian witches, learned about Europe's 500 year long Inquisition,  and crawled along the cobblestones where women were burned...and delved deep into the heart of what truly is an "Italian Witch."More than this being about the history of unsung female healers, her research has uncovered a most important matrilineal living practice (inharmony with all of nature's cycles)  that was destroyed and buried under the patriarchy in ancient times...and whose destruction has affected the modern world today. The Lecture presentation offers video interview footage, photos, and a brief overview of the enormous body of information her book contains, with time allowance for Q & A.

INFO AND TICKETS FOR THIS MANHATTAN, NY EVENT:

https://italianmagicitalyswitchesmedic.splashthat.com


IN this workshop, you'll be presented with a brief overview of Italy's indigenous shamanism-a female-centric holistic world of caring for life in all its phases. 
Specifically, this is a lifestyle based around the family where magic and health are solely a woman's work: there are specifically designated roles that follow

all the natural forma and function for epopele living on the planet who newvertheless are deeply connected to the spirits and energies of the unseen universe.

You'll be introduced to these specific roles and what their duties are. 
For practical application, which is available for everyone, this workshop focuses on "Apotropaic plants" or plants that offer psychic protection from people's

negative energies as well as from negative spirits and spirit world work. These plants also influenced many of the Italian amulets of protection as well.
We'll practice channeling, psychometry, and learn a few methds of working with plants and the earth from Sardinia, Umbria, Liguria, and Campania. 
In a broader sense, Italian shamanism's practices are ones in which YOU are the altar, where magic needs no temple to occur, where miracles are part of daily life. 

ONLINE LECTURE !
