Magic is incredibly useful in times of debilitating anxiety, fear, and turmoil. The pathways of magic and directed imagination are enormously useful for maintaining effective activism and an inspired mind. This latest installment of “Tactical Magic” is designed to offer magicians, activists, and sensitive folks of all skill levels embodied techniques for working through fear and cultivating psychic self protection routines that are direct, simple and effective. This class will provide easy and accessible tools for psychic protection and bodily awareness in the face of fear.

Laura Stinger will lead us through movement and embodied practices for working through fear.

Eliza Swann will offer an overview of psychic self defense practices and will close the class with a supine guided meditation intended to invoke protection as well as protective guides and guardians.

Please wear comfortable clothing.

All folks of all skill levels, physical abilities and belief systems are welcome. Pieter Performance Space is not wheelchair accessible – there is one flight of stairs.

“Tactical Magic” is a monthly series of magic workshops hosted by The Golden Dome School, a mystery school dedicated to studying intersections of art, mysticism, and ecology. “Tactical Magic” offers magical techniques for activists and explores the history of magic as it has been used in resistance and renewal work. We are not affiliated with the Center for Tactical magic.

Laura Stinger is an interdisciplinary artist working in performance, sculpture, and video. Her work examines performance of identity, consumption of desire, and failures in communication between people. Performance is used as a place to push individuality, queerness, and chaotic complexity, while also finding an authentic modern spirituality. In her work, she creates situations that in their live-ness, in their rebelliousness, and in their messiness, attack the homogeneity and crippling blandness of capitalism, choosing to see art as a responsibility and a political act of radical collaboration.

Eliza Swann is an interdisciplinary artist, intuitive, writer, educator, and community organizer based in Los Angeles and New York. Eliza received a BA in Painting from the San Francisco Art Institute, trained in hypnotherapy at the Isis Centre in England, Hindu cosmology and yoga with Dr. Vagish Shastri in Benares, India, Tarot and Western Magical Practice with the Builders of the Adytum Western Mystery School, and received a Master’s degree in Fine Art from Central St. Martins in London. Eliza is the founder of The Golden Dome School, a curatorial and educational platform that studies intersections of art, metaphysics and ecology.
