The Empowered Modern Witches Summit Speakers

Self-Care with the Sun, Moon + Stars

Second Annual    •    September 20-24, 2021

The Empowered Modern Witches Summit is an annual celebration of magickal self-care and empowerment through witchcraft, hosted by The Witch of Lupine Hollow.

This year’s summit will take place September 20-24, 2021, the week of the Autumn Equinox in the northern hemisphere – the perfect time for gathering, sharing wisdom and gratitude, and breaking (virtual) bread together.

Our theme this year is “Self-Care with the Sun, Moon + Stars” and all speakers from our diverse lineup will present their unique perspective and practices related to this overall topic.

This summit is all about highlighting the diverse ways we each practice witchcraft, spirituality, and self-care. Our community is made up of individuals representing many different social and spiritual identities and the goal of this summit will be to represent and amplify the diverse perspectives of modern witches. We are committed to this being a substantially diverse summit, highlighting the voices and practices of BIPOC and LGBTQIA2 folks.

As an attendee, you’ll learn how to practice self-care using the seasons, moon phases, astrology and more from experienced witches, authors, and influencers. 


Even better, the live event is completely free to attend!
