2020 is already one of the most politically fraught years in recent memory. A world warming, an economy on the brink of collapse, how can magic prepare us for what is coming next? In this event Sarah Lyons will examine what witchcraft offers as a radical political practice, going first over its history, it's power in the world today, and the political detentions of magic. Following the short lecture, Sarah will lead a meditation to help ground your magical and activist practices in reality, and manifest the utopia we need.
