Could it be that there is magic in the cracks of everyday life? That it is really there all around, and many forget or do not know how to see it? We gathered in the mountains to remember; and to take time together to learn natural ways to take care of ourselves, and one another. Autumn was starting to peek through the leaves, just in time for this season’s Witch and Bitch theme: Fire. A perfect metaphor for keeping warm, death to inspire rebirth, cleansing, and a light in the darkness. We crafted fire cider to ward off a variety of troubles (and to use up your soup-making scraps!), gem essences to calm and refocus, smoked delights to nourish, and herbal fire to cleanse and transport.
