Magic is a useful way to usher in a new season, lay to rest a long winter, and bring in the light. Join astrologer Lacey Prpic Hedtke of The Future, Nicole Mayefske of Big Mouth Tarot and contemporary crafter Rubina Martini of Tomorrow River Homestead for a Witches’ Weekend.
A small group will convene in rural Wisconsin for a weekend of magic, astrology workshops, tarot instruction and handwork. We’ll be focusing on tools that will enrich our lives as artists, magic-makers and witches.
This retreat takes place at Tomorrow River Homestead, an artist residency space in rural central Wisconsin, with private or shared rooms, a shared kitchen, and 4.5 riverfront acres to explore. It is a feminist space trying to find reprieve from the cis-hetero white supremacist capitalist patriarchy. Click hereto see the rooms.
Includes lodging for two nights, all workshops and one-on-one sessions, and dinner on Friday and Saturday nights (vegetarian/gluten free), breakfast on Saturday and Sunday mornings, and snacks.
Single room: $295
Sharing a room: $550 total ($275/person)
Local (no overnight): $215
If you and a friend would like to share a room, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and the name of the person you’ll be sharing with.
