I am thrilled to announce "Green Witch: Plant Magic, Alchemy, and the Wild Feminine," an evening of conversation between myself and my teacher, the legendary green witch, Robin Rose Bennett. Some of you know that Robin has had a deep influence on my practice and my life on the whole, and this will be a rare opportunity for me to get to ask her even more questions and exchange ideas with her about plant energy, witchcraft, divine feminism, and more. It will be taking place on Thursday, July 28th, 7:30pm at The Alchemist's Kitchen in NYC's East Village.

There are many interpretations of the word "witch," and as an archetype, the witch is as complex as they come. But one thing is clear: she is a potent change-maker who is intimately connected to the Earth and her magick. Whether concocting a botanical potion, engaging in seasonal ritual, or crafting an alchemical spell, she is in constant relationship to nature - and to her own wild self.
In this evening of conversation and celebration, writer and esoteric art curator, Pam Grossman, will discuss aspects of witchcraft and plant energy with her teacher, the legendary green witch, Robin Rose Bennett. Topics will include herbalism and ecology, feminine (and feminist) power, the current rise in popularity of witches, and the ways that the witch can teach us how to heal ourselves, our communities, and our planet.
