Animal Tails Mundane & Magickal – Oberon and Morning Glory lived their 40 years together in the midst of a veritable zoo of animals, wild and domestic, mundane and magickal. They worked with Wildlife Rescue and Critter Care in wild animal rescue, rehabilitation, and release. In addition to the usual cats, they shared their lives and homes with giant snakes (boas, pythons), lizards (iguanas, tegus, geckos, bearded dragons), deer, a feral pig, several sweet possums (Participle, Raspberry, Able, Blossom), a great horned owl (Archimedes), a regal golden pheasant, adolescent green herons, liberated lab rats, Guinea pigs, weaselly ferrets, wascally wabbits, and most famously, authentic living Unicorns. Each of these were real characters, and Oberon will share some of their amusing stories. Presenter: Oberon Zell

From an individual plant spirit to the genus loci of a place, we’ll dig into practices and ideas for becoming the witch of wherever you are. Participants will leave with further resources and rituals for their journey into a deeply rooted sense of place and the power of hyperlocal witchery. Presenter: Christine Grace, M.Div., M.Ed.
