VIP Registration: April 8, 2024, Total Solar Eclipse

VIP registration for this event from here is by invitation only. It is a bonus for those who walk the path of magic and wisdom. You have been invited because you are either a student at Witch Academy or a loyal subscriber to the Practical Witch newsletter. Members of Arkansas’s Every Witch Way also receive VIP invites.

Join us in embracing the transformative power of the Eclipse, as we delve into its mystical energy to ignite renewal within ourselves. This event will include meditations, workshops, and classes with Friday Gladheart and other Witches.

The total solar eclipse takes place in a thin band across the southeast United States. This band is known as the path of totality. Wind ‘n’ Wood (said as you would rock ‘n’ roll) is an organic teaching garden and sanctuary for Witches, Pagans, Earth-centered spiritualists, and other wildlife. It is located in the center of the path of totality and it is the home of Witch Academy and Practical Witch.

Vending is free to everyone who attends, so you can offer any crafts or other products for sale to other campers. If you have used books (especially witchcraft, tarot, herb, or related subjects) or tarot decks, bring them along to sell or trade!

Meet Your Host

Friday Gladheart author of The Practical Witches Almanac
     Friday Gladheart came out of the broom closet in the late 1980s, blending her tarot readings with artisanal herbal creations at local markets. In 1996, she founded Witch Academy, renowned as the oldest and most esteemed online academy for Witchcraft, tarot, and magical herbalism. Soon after, the Practical Witch’s Almanac made its debut.

     Balancing her roles in teaching and writing, Friday is currently in the process of cultivating an organic teaching garden—a sanctuary where knowledge and nature intertwine.
