Event description
Join us for our live webinar Solstice Party, celebrating this season through pleasure and magic!

About this event

Solstice - also known as Litha, or Midsummer, has traditionally been one of the most important sabbats for witches and magical practitioners. The sun shines high for the longest day of the year, offering extended time to learn and burn in the beauty and magic of our world.

We invite you to join us for our second annual live webinar Solstice Party and BIPOC care package fundraiser! This live digital gathering offers participants a chance to hear from a fantastic lineup of presenters, each passionate and driven to share their insight and wisdom around the subjects of pleasure and summer solstice magic while also supporting Seagrape in offering specialized summer care packages for the BIPOC community. Participants will have the chance learn in real time, engage in dialogue, have questions answered and thoughts mused upon.

100% of proceeds from this event will go towards BIPOC care packages.

BIPOC folks attendance by chosen donation (found through tickets button)

This event will serve as an intersection of classic and contemporary traditions around solstice, support us in brand new interpretations as moments and collective understanding continue to unfold, and offer seasoned practitioners the chance to grow in community! If you're new to Seagrape, this is a wonderful way to get to know us and our values, as well as say hello to some magical members of our community.

In the last year, our vision of community has changed and grown. Necessity has called on us to expand our scope of gathering, sacred space, and intentional togetherness. We wish to offer this opportunity to all, as we have with each of our digital workshops. This gathering will take place on Sunday June 20th, the day of the Summer Solstice, from 11am to 2pm. We hope to see you there!

Free replay of event for members of Seagrape Babes! Our growing online community can be found and joined through the link here

SUMMER SOLSTICE NECTAR POWER SPELL : Angela Mary Magick

Fire up your HOT WITCH SUMMER! Join Angela Mary Magick in this deliciously fast paced ritual workshop to quicken your Magick by blessing the nectars of your body. Bring a natural vessel of local honey (or a plant based nectar like agave nectar or monk fruit syrup) sunflower petals, a wooden spoon,  Book of Shadows and/or Sex Magick Journal. Our Coven will create our individual Spell intentions and share with each other at the end of the workshop. The moon is in Scorpio setting the stage for a divinely sensuous ritual.

QUEER MAGICAL EROTICISM : Ylva Mara Radziszewski

Magic is inherently sensual. The power of the Witch is sourced from the undulation of the elements, pulsing through our lives. Harnessing this energy is a foundational technique, useful in fueling and empowering any ritual and spell… particularly those centering healing, manifestation, growth, protection, boundaries, and empowerment. Accessing the pulse of the elements within the body allows the Witch to draw and focus Universal energy into their altars with more potency. Join us for a non-sexual, non-play centered exploration of foundational principles of Queer Eroticism as a conduit for raising, focusing, and casting magical energy.

THE ESSENTIAL HEALING OF SOFTNESS + REST : Ericka Gail

Living in an individualistic, capitalist, colonized culture means many of us are often always on the "go," whether in our work, communities, or our personal lives. We're asked to participate in "grind culture," bodies are likened to machines, hobbies are turned into hustles, and rest is seen as 'laziness.' What if I told you rest is not laziness, but sacred? That rest has to be made a priority, done intentionally, and that to get there means showing ourselves more grace, compassion, and softness to ourselves and each other? In this workshop, learn tips on how to make more space for rest, how to practice it with intentionality and as an internal decolonization process.

THE ART OF LENORMAND + CRAFTING A DECK FOR PLEASURE : Sara M Lyons

Explore the easy, intuitive art of Lenormand, and fold it into your creative practice by learning how to craft your own 36-card deck! Artist and illustrator Sara M. Lyons, the creator of Cute Little Lenormand, will walk you through the basics of this charmingly simple but surprisingly potent form of cartomancy that dates back to the 18th century. In this talk, you'll learn to interpret Lenormand's classic archetypes in three-card vignettes - then you'll discover how to create your own personal, unique Lenormand deck. If you have a Lenormand deck already, you'll want to have it handy - but if you don't, no need to worry! With any deck of traditional playing cards and your own special artistic magic, by the end of this short workshop, you'll have all the tools you need to both craft and work with a deck that truly resonates for you.

THE HEALING POWER OF PSILOCYBIN MUSHROOMS : Fruiting Bodies

This talk is an introduction to the therapeutic use of psilocybin mushrooms and Oregon's newly approved legal framework. We will cover: How psychedelic mushrooms work in the brain, research on the therapeutic potential for a broad range of mental health conditions, how Oregon is leading the way with its hybrid therapeutic model, and equity and access concerns we seek to address.

Sara Lyons she/her

Sara M. Lyons is an artist, illustrator, creator of the Cute Little Lenormand, and nail decal designer living and working in Anaheim, Ca.

Her work focuses heavily on femininity and vice as filtered through the (slightly off-kilter) lens of her own experiences. Archie comics, John Waters films, Saturday morning cartoons, Lindsay Lohan, and early punk rock are among her references, and she's not one to shy away from the color pink.

Her artwork and nail decals have been featured by NYLON magazine, refinery29, buzzfeed, the beauty department, urban outfitters, xojane, rookie, broadly, the a/v club, complex, paste, and tipsy magazine, just to name a few. Find Sara on instagram at @saramlyons.
