Catland Workshop – Vylyvaty Visk: Slavic Wax Pouring
July 26 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm$30
Vylyvaty Visk, or wax pouring, is a traditional Ukrainian ritual used to cleanse and clear fears and anxiety. The ceremony combines cleansing, exorcism, and divination magic and is performed by the grandmothers or elder women of the village.
Learn this ancient magic with Madame Pamita as she teaches you the secrets of this powerful folk ritual. While this practice was once widespread, it was driven underground during the 20th century and nearly completely lost. Join Ukrainian diaspora witch, Madame Pamita as she teaches you the origins of wax pouring, Slavic beliefs about curses, the evil eye and fear and how they can negatively affect an individual, and the power of the Baba Sheptukha, or grandmother whisperer. She’ll also reveal to you the steps of vylyvaty visk, an often closely-guarded and secretive practice, as it was practiced by her own grandmother.
