Personal Grimoiring and the Swedish Black Books Tradition with Siri Vincent Plouff
Time & Location
Aug 07, 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM EDT
About the event
Through making art we create the sacred, through recording our magic we tell true lies. There are many rich traditions of grimoiring and keeping magical records, and for good reason. Your magical record is one of the most vital aspects of magical learning. Through keeping a magical record, you’re able to see what worked, track your progress, and learn how to live in the rhythm with the world around you. In this workshop, Siri will teach you about magical record keeping within the Swedish Black Books - or Svartkonstböcker - tradition. They will also share techniques to awaken your own Black Book and make it a true conspirator in your quest for magical and self knowledge. Please bring your own grimoire for a guided consecration ritual.
This is a 90-120 minute foundational level lecture and workshop
About the Presenter:
Siri Vincent Plouff (they/them) is a Nordic witch, rune reader, and tarot reader based on Anishinaabe and Dakota land, AKA Minneapolis, MN. As an unabashedly queer person, they are constantly interrogating runes and Nordic practices through a unique lens of gender identity. They see witchcraft as a way to break out of expectations, and live outside of society. They are in training with Kari Tauring, a modern-day völva, and Johannes Gårdbäck, a Trollkunning and professional folk magician. Siri teaches about the runes, tarot, and witchcraft. Their signature courses are the Radical Runes Course and the Witchcraft Immersion. "Lessons from the Empress: A tarot workbook for self care and creative growth" was co-written with Cassandra Snow and will be published on October 1, 2022.
