Miss Bri of San-Antonio-based Milagro Roots will present an in-depth class on conjure love magic, covering altar work, figural and moving candle spells, mojo hands, lodestone spells, the use of photographs and personal concerns, and how to time the work for best results. Participants will construct a complete spell layout to take home, with all materials supplied except personal concerns. (If you have someone in mind for this work, please bring photos and bodily concerns.)
Miss Lara of the Dallas-based Black Cat Root Shack will be giving her always-popular foot washing class, a hands-on class in the Jewish, Christian, and Spiritualist traditions of blessing and cleansing a client through the ritual act of bathing and praying over the feet. All supplies are provided, and you will get to actually perform a spiritual foot washing on a student-partner, with feedback and discussion provided by other trained rootworkers. Due to the physical nature of the work, this class is limited in enrollment, and in order to ensure you can get in, pre-arrival sign-up is recommended.
Miss Robin will hold a workshop on gambling spells, including how to consult dream books for lucky betting numbers and the use of candle spells, mojo hands, lodestones, hand-washes, anointing oils, sachet powders, and the sigilization, of trained hunting money by those who bet on games of chance. A sample lucky-number dream book is included in the cost of the workshop and all materials are provided.
Lucky Mojo shop manager Sister Robin ("Red Robin") presents a new workshop this year -- one we hope will become an annual event: Hoodoo Food! This workshop features the use of EDIBLE magical herbs in all manner of spell-work recipes from love cakes and money greens to secretly controlling salads. In order to attend the Hoodoo Food! workshop, you must coordinate with Sister Robin (707-887-1521) to send in your recipe and descriptive notes, and you must bring a (large) sample platter or tray of the magical food for the rest of the group to discuss, taste-test, and share at the workshop. All pre-submitted Hoodoo Food! recipes and write-ups will be printed in booklet form, with each workshop participant receiving a free copy. Extra "Hoodoo Food!" recipe booklets will be sold to benefit the work of Missionary Independent Spiritual Church. Any food not eaten by participants at the workshop will become part of the general Party Potluck.
Party attendance is absolutely FREE, and potluck food and beverages will be provided both days. Cost for the workshops will vary by the cost of ingredients supplied, and will run from $10.00 to $25.00 each, to be paid directly to each workshop organizer.
