$30 cash fee
A fundamental aspect of Southern Root-Doctoring and Conjure practices is the construction, awakening and feeding of charm bags for enhancing the well being of the wearer.This process is often referred to as "fixin a mojo", "makin a hand" or "turnin a spirit-bag". The conjurer uses a specific formula to create this "living prayer" so that it can open the luck, life and luck roads as well as teach the spirit of the wearer how to attract the good things in life. In this workshop, Orion an Old-Style Conjurer, will teach participants a hands-on approach to this much beloved and coveted form of magic..
Orion Foxwood was born with “the veil” (an Appalachian term for second sight), into the rural Shenandoah River Valley in 1963, where his world was rife with folklore, ghost stories, superstition and magical customs! His father was part Lakota Native and his mother was born in the slave quarters of a Virginia plantation called “The Hollingsworth Place”, where she was midwifed and spiritually fostered by a freed slave affectionately known as Miss Granny – it was this distinctive combination of elements that formed the foundations of Orion’s unique spirituality and magical practices. Orion is a Conjurer in Southern Root Doctoring Practices, a Traditional Witch, an Alexandrian Wicca High Priest, an Elder and Mantle Carrier for an Old Religionist Craft Line, and a Faery Seer. He is a founding elder of the Foxwood Temple of the Old Religion, co-founder of the House of Brigh, and co-organizer for the Folk Magic Festival in New Orleans. For more than twenty years, Orion has lectured extensively on magical practice and spiritual development throughout the United States and abroad. He is the author of The Faery Teachings and The Tree of Enchantment. Orion also holds a masters degree in Human Services.
