Capital Coven is a community of kindred spirits interested in the other-worldly and who support each other in spiritual development. The only rules to join are to be open-minded to exploring the Great Mystery together. We meet monthly to create together, build deeper connections and to learn a little bit more about topics of interest, including but not limited to: spirituality, energy, healing, sacred geometry, earth—based wisdom, crystals, tarot, astrology, shamanism, etc. We aim to deepen our connections to our own intuition and explore tools to help us do that. If you are seeking a supportive community grounded in soul-work, please join us! We meet monthly on potent lunar days when possible, to activate our intentions. Come as you are, as we are all learners on this path.
Participants will receive a Capital Coven journal upon joining the community ($20) which they can decorate on their own. Journals will be used to track our insights, notes and other details during and after gatherings. If you are not interested in joining, please still bring a journal of your own to any event you attend. The Lunar Enlightenment Series is the name for our monthly meetups centered on collective learning and creating in a magical space together. We look forward to enlightening our lives in a safe container with you!

As much as she loves to draw, she loves to eat. Her plan is to travel to new places around the world and taste their food and draw comics about them. There is really no food that she wouldn't try at least once in her life. She doesn't have a sweet tooth though. She always goes for bacon over baked goods.
