Dear Ones, we invite you to our inaugural event, the first of many workshops held by L.A.'s favorite punk poet of magical realism, Francesca Lia Block, and Amanda Yates Garcia, the Oracle of Los Angeles.
If you're feeling stuck, uninspired, or you're just finding it difficult to get your creative juices flowing, this is the workshop for you. In this 3 hour event you'll learn magical techniques for contacting and working with your very own muse; create a short text that you can use on its own or expand into a larger project; get feedback on your from a professional writer, and witch writer/spiritual consultant; AND best of all, perform a completion spell to manifest your muse's gifts in the material world.
According to classical myth, the muses were the daughters of the Greek god Zeus, and Mnemosyne, goddess of memory. You carry within your own memory you everything you need in order to make your masterpiece, all you need to do is find access. Throughout history artists of all kinds have tapped into the Muse as the source of genius. Muses are like actual genies, spirit beings that speak to us and whisper inspiration. In Elizabeth Gilbert's TED talk she discusses how genius isn't something we have, it's something that speaks through us. In this workshop you'll get in touch with that special spirit guide who will help you kick start your creativity and make something worthy of otherworldly recognition.
