Occoult Poetics and (Soma)tic Poetry Rituals Workshop with CA Conrad

  • Antidote Books 120 Main Street Putney, VT, 05346 United States (map)

In this two-day workshop (July 24-25), CAConrad will discuss how occult and paranormal experiences and practices of poets in the past show us the way to trusting these same forces are also alive and at work for us today. CA has successfully used (Soma)tic poetry rituals to overcome depression after the murder of their boyfriend Earth (aka Mark Holmes). CA has also created writing rituals using the night sky to design homemade star constellations, another ritual to experience what the impact of hearing the word “drone” has on the human body, and many others from talking with trees, ghosts, translating Shakespeare’s sonnets with crystals, and coping with the destroyed wilderness of our planet.

Please bring notebooks and pens as we will construct together a (Soma)tic poetry ritual for all workshop participants.

Cost: Sliding scale of $27 to $108; personalized rituals available for workshop participants on Thursday and Friday. Sliding scale of $9-$27.
