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.

How (and why) to cast a magical circle

A circle is a psychic space where we transform the world. A circle is a sacred space where we transform ourselves. A circle is also a physical place, and can even be physically traced on the ground, and visible to the regular observer, or exclusively energetically, only visible with the mind’s eye. 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

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...
