The rozdorizhshya can be used for attracting abundance, but it can also be the site for picking up a curse. It is a place where divinations and incantations are magnified, where talismans and amulets are hung or buried for empowerment. The crossroads is a place where all places and directions meet, where time has no meaning, and where magic crackles in the air.

Vinok: Magical Slavic Flower Crowns

The vinok, or Slavic flower wreath, is very old magic. There are records of magical wreaths going back three thousand years, but it is believed that the use of wreaths in magic goes back even further to before written history. Wreaths were worn not just to adorn, but to bless and protect the wearer. There are special traditional herbs and flowers used for particular spells,  traditional days for collecting and making vinoky and special methods for collecting those plants. Once they are made, there are special spells and divinations that can be done with your vinok. It’s all so magical! In this workshop, Madame Pamita will teach you how to collect magical plants, how to make a few different types of vinoky and how to do spells and divination with your magical wreath. No materials are needed and no prior magical experience is necessary for this workshop, but a basic understanding of folk magic is helpful. People of all spiritual paths and ancestry are welcome.

Voda: Slavic Water Magic

Slavic people from the most ancient times have revered rivers, lakes, seas, wells, gentle rains, and springs.

Join Madame Pamita as she teaches the magic of water in the Slavic tradition.

Vylyvaty Visk: Slavic Wax Pouring

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. Madame Pamita will teach 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.

Vyshyvanky: Slavic Talismanic Embroidery
