Linda Mae – The Sacred Center – A Trance Journey
In this workshop, we will talk about the Sacred Center (the well, fire, and tree) and the re-creation of the universe.  Our talk will culminate in a trance journey (guided visualization) to find our own inner sacred center – the place within us where the universe is constantly creating anew.  This workshop includes a bit of cosmology derived from ADF and other sources.

Our Presenters

Kristoffer Hughes

Llewellyn Publications has grown and expanded into new areas of personal growth and transformation since it began as the Portland School of Astrology in 1901. Along with the strong line of astrology books the company was founded upon, Llewellyn publishes books on everything from alternative health and healing, Wicca and Paganism, to metaphysics and the paranormal-and since 1994 has published a growing list of Spanish-language titles.

Misha Magdalene

Misha Magdalene is a multi-classed, multi-geek, multi-queer witch with a degree in gender studies, and the author of OUTSIDE THE CHARMED CIRCLE: EXPLORING GENDER & SEXUALITY IN MAGICAL PRACTICE (Llewellyn, January 2020). They’re an initiate of multiple lines of traditional witchcraft, including Anderson Feri and Gardnerian Wicca, and have also been known to dabble recklessly in both modern ceremonial magic and grimoiric goetia. They’ve been blogging since 2001, negotiating the online world since 1987, playing Dungeons & Dragons since 1981, and listening to weird music since birth. A native of California, they spent several formative years in upstate South Carolina, and now live on occupied Duwamish territory in the Seattle area with their polymath wife, their precocious daughter, and two adorably destructive black kittens.
