Satanism 101
Limited Capacity seats available

When Paganicon asked me if I would teach a Satanism 101 workshop, I gladly accepted. Having a platform to talk about this empowering Path of the Left and the movement surrounding it, as well as an opportunity to clear up the misconceptions associated with Satanism will enlighten and educate the participant.
My experience with Satanism and the Left Hand Path are both personal and professional. I have served as United States Chapter Head for the Church of Rational Satanism, Media Liaison for the abdicated Minneapolis Chapter of The Satanic Temple and as a Founding Member of Minnesota’s Left Hand Path Community.
This workshop will enlighten you on different branches of this path, its history, philosophies and its influence in the world today. It will also dispel the many myths and mysteries associated with Satan, Satanism and those who call themselves Satanists.

Addiction Recovery for Those on the Left Path
Limited Capacity seats available

In January 2018 The Minnesota Left Hand Path Community opened its doors to the first addiction recovery meeting for those who do not identify with the Christian message of traditional 12 Step.
In this presentation I will explain why traditional 12 Step meetings are often unapproachable to those of us who do not believe in the Christian god. I will discuss how  finding supportive recovery community where the names of all deities, daemons, gods and goddesses are spoken without fear, ridicule or judgement helps those of us on the Path of the Left live a life free from addiction.Addiction Recovery for Those on the Left Path

Clearing the Undergrowth: That Phrase Does Not Mean What You Think It Means
Limited Capacity seats available

What we say isn’t always what we think we’re saying.  Phrases that sneak into our everyday language and our rituals can have meanings we don’t intend.  What we say isn’t necessarily what people hear.
If we are to live with intent, if our words are to be magical, we must be certain we know what we are saying.  Join me as we explore the meanings in three common phrases in the pagan world: “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear,” “With free will to all and harm to none,” and “Everything happens for a reason.”  Through these phrases we will discuss the underlying meanings, both intended and not, and how our words can actively sabotage our intent.
If our words are to be magic, let us be certain they create the magic we intend.
