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, Magic, where you will actually learn to work magic in 13 weekly meetings starting on Wednesday September 22, 2021 – Wednesday December 15, 2021 5:30pm – 7pm PST. 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.

Most importantly, a circle is a space separate from our ordinary lives, it’s a purposefully designed container to work magic.

The day the sun didn’t rise

It’s Wednesday September 9, 2020, and the sun didn’t come out in San Francisco. Actually, it didn’t come out in the Bay Area at all. Cars are driving around with their headlights on and I have all the same lights on that I have on at night. My neighbors lights are...

How a Witch Works Energy

How a Witch Works Energy

My version of witchcraft is deeply experiential. I don’t read about it, or think about it, or talk about it, as much as I experience it. I live it. Of course, I have read and thought and talked about witchcraft and magic a whole lot throughout my life, and that has...
