Welcome to Bruja School

Welcome to Bruja School,

a magical space to get support and ideas on how to get happy while acknowledging the world is going up in flames, and maybe even doing something about it.

Witches have been at it for thousands of years, so you might as well get some tips from us!

You can join my Witchcraft Course, Liberation Magic, where you will actually learn to work magic in 13 weeks. At Bruja School you can also get tarot readings, individual coaching, or simply read my perspective on how to heal individually, grow spiritually, develop personally, and have an awesome life, while acknowledging and understanding that we live in a patriarchal, misogynistic, white supremacist, neoliberal capitalist system that does NOT have our best interest at heart – and we have a part in changing that.

I write about the challenges and paradox of transforming the world while living a good life, and offer services of support in this challenge.

And you might want to get involved in efforts to shift the system also, because you may not make the change for you at a systemic level right away, but you’re starting to make that change.
