Sometimes you feel her stirring within you
whispering the secrets
of the dark wood and the long night.
Other times she's quiet and you feel an emptiness where her light once lived.
You wonder... was that vision you had of yourself as powerful and wise a mere figment of your imagination? Is she gone dormant or gone forever?
You feel relief and despair in equal measures. Relief because maybe you’re “normal.” And despair because maybe you’re “normal.” The world, meanwhile, treats you the same either way.
You wonder if other women are harboring an inner-witch, a wick waiting to be lit.
You feel like a bit of an outcast, furtively researching arcana, reading up on Goddesses, secretly drawing oracle cards. And in the busy-ness of meetings, emails, making dinner, and keeping up appearances, your fear of both fitting in and not fitting in grows ‘til it obscures the doorway to your inner wisdom.
What if I told you...
"Looking back, 'pre-Witch-Camp-Tiffany' was wandering around, aimlessly looking for something to inspire her and help her feel seen. She had no idea that an online course could help change her. Through Witch Camp, I built healthy boundaries, said "Ciao!" to a few unsettling relationships (living and otherwise), and found my voice with my family. Most of all, Maia facilitated a program to help me be kind to myself. She helped me carve out some space to meet myself where I am at in the moment and help take me to who I want to be."

Perhaps the word witch takes you by surprise. It might even make you a little uncomfortable. If you’re like me, you might identify yourself as a traveler, an intellectual, a poet, a foodie, a folklorist or anthropologist, an adventurer... but never a witch.
This is where I challenge you to see beyond the pointy hats, the love spells, and the fluff n’ stuff of witchery subsuming social media.
This is when I ask you: What if witch was actually ancient and wise and deeply in sync? What if... a witch is simply a woman who knows herself and how to dance with the cycle of the seasons?
A witch is a woman who understands that Medicine, in the oldest sense of the word, has to do with healing the spirit. It has to do with deepening your roots and learning to move through the world with a profound sense of self-trust.
Witch Camp is a 23-day immersive study...
...firmly grounded in the history, practice, and power of witchery, teaching you basic building blocks to help get you into the flow of your unique cycles as you dance through the seasons of the year.
This re-envisioned Witch Camp is set up so you can sink deep into the language of the mystic.
Plan on 30 minutes for lessons Monday through Saturday and 90 minutes for our live (and recorded) webinars on Sundays.
"I’m so grateful for the kindness and sacred way in which we were taught and held. My life has changed. I feel as though my world and my future has gone from black and white to FULL ON COLOR!"
Kim Fox-Guderson, Chicago IL

"I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Witch Camp has been the greatest gift I’ve ever given myself. I have loved every minute of it and learned so much, and have become so much more confident in my beliefs and my own power."
Nicole Lannoy Lawson, Los Angeles CA
Welcome yourself home. Welcome to Witch Camp.
Earth & Sky
Listen to the language of Earth & Sky, the Wheel of the Year, and the cycles of the moon so you can sink deep into natural rhythms, remember the hidden patterns of the universe, and find your own flow.
Learn tools to enhance your intuition (or discover it if you haven't already!), including oracle cards and dowsing, so that you can make decisions quickly and comfortably.
Feel whole again within a community of like-minded women experimenting with what works for them. You'll find your way through hands-on learning and practice with the support of a deeply grounded sisterhood.
Explore the ancient use of the word "medicine" and to delve into the 3 Medicine Kingdoms—animal, vegetable, mineral—so that you can find your own Medicine and heal your own soul.
Discover the Four Elements so you can cast a circle to create and contain sacred space. Clear and cleanse your energy and begin using an altar to focus your intentions.
Book of Shadows
Craft your own Book of Shadows, 'cause, news-flash: you can't buy it on Amazon! You can only live it and record it. It's your shadow-story.
I give you tools, histories, and traditions, and most importantly the permission to find your way, not mine... not hers... not that other gal's.
"This has been one of the most impactful courses I have ever experienced, and it was an experience rather than just book learning. Maia's teaching style is so generous, so inclusive, so thoughtful and thought provoking. I have delved into unchartered territory in both my inner and outer landscapes. I have started to think in a different way. I have experienced ritual as a living practice. I finish the course with a clearer understanding of what it means to find my own truth, to find my own way. I have enormous respect for Maia and for what she stands for in this world. I have enormous gratitude to Maia for choosing to spread her witchy wisdom in the world and for the space that she holds for others to find their own witchy wisdom."

HI, I'M MAIA!
About a decade ago, I spent a year apprenticed to a wise and witchy herb woman in Ireland. It was beautiful and terrible, drenched in history and intuition and everyday magic.
And it fed a corrosive longing which had been gnawing at my soul my whole life.
Over time I started teaching what I had learned. I called it “herbalism,” but it was more; it was deeper.
This restorative, mysterious thing I taught (and still teach)—this thing that has no name—builds communities, salvages souls, and brings deep comfort, roots, and connection.
It heals wounds that we don’t even know need mending.
This way of being is not something that can be learned through a hard-core weekend, accompanied by drumming and vegan food. It is a compilation of small life lessons learned by everyday people in the midst of their everyday lives. There is no “one huge revelation.” In fact, sometimes it all seems so benign—hardly mystical at all—until the epiphanies come.
But those epiphanies! They’ll lay you flat and raise you up. They’ll change how you see yourself and the world.
But they only come if you dare to take action: dance in the moonlight, share a story, try a new food, be bold enough to chat up some local greenery.
This is not a path for the passive.
This is a path of daily (or somewhat daily!) practice. It’s about doing and being.
I can’t fail to mention, both as inspiration and warning: my students tell me that from the minute they sign on to work with me, things start shifting.
"Thank you for starting me back on the path that I doubted, that I hid in the broom closet. The path that got derailed by too much dogma. The path where my intuition leads. The path to witchy wisdom and well being."
Jenny Davies-Reazor, Newark DE
"I love the work in this course. The energy work has been tremendous for me. I am so used to looking outside for people to do work on me, I feel like I now have the tools to do it for myself. Thank you :) What a beautiful group of women who have gathered here."
Christine Walsh Egan, Long Island NY
Is Witch Camp a Wiccan group?
Nope. I know Wiccans use the word, but witch predates Wicca.
Are men allowed to join Witch Camp?
Absolutely. What I teach is wisdom that's traveled down to us along the female lines. Whoever you are, if you're comfortable with this lineage, you're most welcome!
What if I can't be there for a webinar? Are they recorded?
The webinars are recorded and the replays are almost immediately available.
How long do I have access to the material?
We can promise access for a year (and probably more!), but we can't guarantee technology.
What's your refund policy?
We want you to love Witch Camp! If it's not for you, let us know within 3 days after the course opens after which time there are no refunds.
Do I need supplies?
You'll want to have sage, a clear quartz crystal (any size), and oracle/tarot cards. You might also like to have a candle, a few of your favorite essential oils, and a We'moon datebook for 2019.
"I can’t express how grateful I am for this space, Witch Camp. I started this course because I wanted to find my roots again, my connection to this planet, to my body and to my intuition. And I think I have found more than this. Feels like coming home for me, home into my body, home on this wonderful planet earth, home to my old (and neglected) path of being a witch."
