A magickal mastermind for the far-out witch.
What is the Brave + Curious Coven?
The Brave + Curious Coven is a magickal mastermind—we gather to share thoughts, ideas, questions, practices, and experiences of witchcraft and mysticism.
The goal? To deepen our understanding of self. To expand our practice of craft. To self-actualize. To receive guidance, support, advice, and inspiration from like-minded folks who are invested in our health and success. To challenge each other to take risks—magickal and otherwise—that support our growth and desires. To accelerate our learning. To become ever more empowered. To connect with something outside of ourselves. To contribute to something inspiring and meaningful.
How Does the Brave + Curious Coven Work?
The Brave + Curious Coven is a collective of solitary witches, each of whom practice magick and spirituality uniquely. Each month, we set intentions ritually with one another, and we go forth and realize those intentions independently. During that time, we each create and share an offering with the group that reflects what we’ve discovered along the way.
We reconvene at the end of the month to discuss our findings in greater depth, to provide feedback, and to offer advice. We’re constantly learning new and better ways to practice magick and cultivate a magickal mindset from one another through our interaction and the content that we create and offer to the group. Coven members can also connect with one another whenever they’d like through our Discord server!
What Will I be Asked to Contribute as A Coven Member?
One video, audio, or text file in which you share an important idea, story, technique, finding, and/or revelation as it applies to your magickal work that month. This does NOT have to be ridiculously long or involved, nor does it have to be absurdly complex or polished. In fact, if you can keep it casual, succinct, and to-the-point, even better (A 15 minute-or-less video/audio file or a 500-word pdf should do).
A monthly intention that resonates with who you are, who you’re becoming, where you’re going, and where you want to be (intentions are shared in a ritual setting with coven members—they’re powerful and inspiring for everyone involved).
Your glorious presence in at least one of the two monthly live calls! This is where we charge our intentions, sound our voices, connect, and learn. The more beauties show up, the better we ALL are!
An adventurous, playful, hopeful, and supportive attitude. This is a space where we encourage each other to overcome our fears and pursue our unique visions of greatness. We need beauties who believe in their ability to rise and who understand that when one of us rises, we all rise.
Thriving members of the Brave + Curious coven are those who connect with their magic consistently: they might pull and reflect on a daily tarot card, set their intention with the new moon, work with scripting, go on walks with the conscious intention of connecting with the earth, craft sigils, and trip on the astral. The thing they share in common is a commitment to connecting with the wonder, magick, and possibility of this world and beyond. If you’re ready to commit to a magickal life, we’re ready to help you create it!
When I Join the Brave + Curious Coven, What Will I Receive?
An invitation to two hour-long monthly coven gatherings. In the first, we share and collectively charge our monthly intentions. We offer advice and support for realizing those intentions, both through magickal and mundane approaches. In the second, we reflect on the pursuit of those intentions—the magick we performed, the risks we took, and the outcomes.
A video, audio, or text file from each member of the coven each month, myself included. These files share important ideas, techniques, stories, and/or findings that coven members choose to share as they relate to magickal work.
Entrance into the Brave + Curious Discord group, a space where you can connect with coven members whenever you choose!
Community, acceptance, and support. This is an uplifting space, and the connections we make with each other inspire us to do the magick and make the changes we’ve always wanted to!
What role do you play, Jessi?
I am an active member of the Brave + Curious Coven, so I contribute just as you do! I am also the facilitator of this group: I’m the person to whom you send your contributions, questions, and suggestions. I collect and collate our offerings and host both of the monthly live coven gatherings. I encourage participation and I challenge us to think outside the box when necessary. Mostly, my focus is making sure that this is an empowering, dynamic, and enriching space for everyone who shares it!
The Brave + Curious Coven May Be for You If…
You’re looking for accountability and support in your craft.
You enjoy learning from others, and you enjoy sharing what you’ve learned with others.
You’re willing to put what you learn into practice.
You thrive in collaborative environments (This is not the same as being an extrovert–I’m an introvert, and I LOVE sharing my ideas and experiences with like minds!)
You believe that magick and witchcraft can help you achieve what you want to achieve.
You’re tolerant of different magickal approaches and viewpoints.
You’re familiar with sigil craft, spellcraft/magickal theory, astral travel and the astral realm, archetypes, the collective unconscious, and synchronicity (New to all of this? The WISE ONES Coven and The Spell Bound Academy may be a better fit)
You have an adventurous mind, spirit, and heart, and you’re committed to your psycho-spiritual growth and development.
The thought of joining this coven inspires and excites you (if you feel some nerves, that’s totally fine—it’s a natural response to the prospect of growth and change!)
The Brave + Curious Coven Likely Isn’t For You If…
You’re incredibly private with your practice, and you’d be uncomfortable sharing at least some of it with others.
You find it difficult to put what you learn into practice.
You feel highly uncomfortable in collaborative environments.
You have trouble maintaining commitments and/or you can’t seem to find the time for magickal and spiritual practice.
You’re kind of a Debbie Downer. And yes—there’s a difference between being culturally aware and personally vulnerable (which we encourage!) and being a Debbie Downer (don’t know what a Debbie Downer is? Watch this clip)
Your practice aligns very closely with a specific tradition, and you’re not interested in exploring ideas and practices that lie outside of that tradition.
The thought of joining this coven terrifies you, makes you deeply anxious, and/or triggers a cluster of unresolved shadows—you’re likely not ready yet, but you may be in time!
