Wednesdays You tube

CTCW is going Virtual this year!

Posted on Updated on

We have to learn some new skills, which has me a bit nervous, but when do we not have to learn? This will allow CTCW to reach people farther away than could come physically, and also some who couldn’t afford the travel and hotel will be able to afford the $25 cost! But how do we let everyone know that we are happening, and in a new way?

We’re going to have a weekly Podcast!


We’ve got a CTCW channel on Youtube, and I am going to be doing a weekly show: live, so people can call in, I’ll be interviewing some of our teachers, moderating panels, and essentially, we’ll have a free weekly CTCW class or panel, or chat with one of our great folks, as you may have in the Hospitality room, or a hallway. The live shows will be from 8-9 pm EST Wednesdays.

We’ll be using this new platform, Zoom, to share our workshops and panels, and Hospitality (chatting space) this year at CTCW. We’re expanding to a whole week, with evenings Monday through Friday, and full days of Panels and Workshops on the Weekend (with the chat room open at the same time to see old friends and continue talking about topics). Zoom allows us to record our workshops, so we’ll be posting them on You-tube. That way if you miss one, you can watch it later.
When I heard about this, I thought, I can use this to give folks a chance to see what we’re about by doing a talk show and put up an hour a week. That should give us about 20 panels or workshops between now and then to share the stuff we like to, and let people find out what we’re about.

What is CTCW about?

We don’t go for big name guests, but have a lot of experienced people sharing how to do the stuff we are doing. By “Stuff”, I mean Paranormal, Occult, Supernatural, Metaphysical stuff- the stuff that’s not supposed to exist, but some of us use it every day. If we learn how to use it better, maybe people will stop scoffing and start using these useful techniques.
Science jumps on the occult because it wants everything to be replicable. The problem is- it’s something people do. If you run, you can learn to run faster, but none of your “runs” will be exactly the same. If you sing, even when you sing the same song, each time you do, it will be a bit different. If you bake, even though you have a favorite recipe, it won’t come out exactly the same every time.
The Kreskins of the world say that if they can replicate an effect with trickery, that proves that it can be done that way, so it must have been done that way when we do it. Really? In what way is that scientific?


People are nervous about the ‘occult’ because it’s hidden. A lot of it was hidden because if they caught you doing it, you could be punished- even killed. And yes, this was done, many times, by the Church that was trying to make sure that they had a monopoly, because many of the healing and divination and manipulation of odds was done with the help of spirits, that the Church designated as evil. They especially reviled healers because they were very good at energy healing, so it was a huge selling point in early recruitment situations to claim that they did it better. Later, they just wanted to keep people coming back and not accepting help from any other entities. That intolerance was horrible, but I think they’ve stopped that, so we don’t need to hide any more, or complain about what they did. (Only complain about when individuals and groups do bad things now.)


If you define something as impossible, it’s hard to learn to do it well. Any time you want to learn something, it helps to have someone help you- show you better techniques, explain which conditions make things work best, what the best tools are, etc. That’s what we are doing.
If you want to talk about something you do, I’d love to have you come on the show, if you have questions, listen and you’ll be able to ask them. 21st century technology will let us record it, share on Youtube, so others will be able to find out about us. If you have friends who haven’t heard about CTCW, let them know about us, and this will help spread the word.
Times change, the World needs to change for the better. That’s what we’re doing with CTCW. Won’t it be a better world for future generations if we can use all our talents and not pretend they don’t exist?

Mindful Morning MediTEAtion

Posted on Updated on

Shhhhhh! Mindful Morning MediTEAtion for Non-Morning People

Tea is liquid joy. Join us quietly for a silent meditation facilitated by Gabriella and Akasha’s Heart before our conference begins. If you are a slow waker-upper like we are, you are welcome to join us for mindful tea preparing & consuming. It is understood that many of us do not wish to socialize prior to the comfort & ritual of having our morning tea. There are things we can do to make this ritual a more mindful experience like stirring in our accoutrements using sigils or symbols, stirring deosil or widdershins, and of course choosing a tea has specific herbal properties. During our time together, there will be energetically light information provided on handouts and signs. You are welcome to join us in your pajamas & slippers, but this will be a silent gathering for the morning mopies like us to sink into delicious, comforting tea and not have to engage our brain cells. Akasha’s Journey will provide a variety of teas and sweeteners. You are encouraged to bring your own mug or tea cup.

Art Show

Posted on Updated on

With Joy as this year’s theme, we’ve decided to have another Art Show! (We had one last when the theme was Communication.)

Two years ago we were back at the Northampton MA site where we started, and Raymond Taylor did this birds eye view painting of that hotel- which no longer exists except in our memories, and this painting.

No matter what your medium, or whether you work in sacred space or just bliss out, we hope you’ll come and share your work this year at the art show.

Concert! Rhiannon’s Lark!

Posted on Updated on

Rhiannon’s Lark is a solo music project created by Alyssa Yeager (sensual vocals, growly guitar, candy-coated ukulele) to express the reality of life as a geek, goddess, and girl. Alyssa is known for her “magickal, mystical storytelling”. She began touring the festival circuit in 2005 with the band Telling Point, and has shared bills with artists including Frenchy and the Punk, Wendy Rule, Kellianna, and Tuatha Dea. She has released 5 original albums, including a children’s album designed to encourage kids and caretakers to be creative and tell their own stories in song. Alyssa’s background in music therapy motivates her to create songs that connect to the daily experiences in the lives of her listeners. She brings gaming, fantasy, morality, and t-rexes together into a show that will comfort your ears, get you laughing, and possibly even make you think.
