For a taste of Orion's gritty folk magic, consider purchasing the "Introduction to Southern Conjure" DVD by Pendraig Publishing.
Held at a private residence on 6 acres in Kernville, CA on the Kern River, the Conjure Intensive will avail itself of the magic of
a historic cemetery, a cleansing river, brilliant night skies and the Native American history of the area. Primitive camping is
included on site for both Friday and Saturday nights. Please plan your arrival so you've got enough time to get situated. If you'd
like the names of hotels in the area, let me know.
Tube down the river on Sunday when we break or for your lunch break Saturday! Visit Remington Hot Springs on the lower Kern on
your way into and/or out of town. River raft, kayak, mountain bike, go see the giant sequoias, etc.
Born with “the veil” (a localized term for the second sight) in 1963 in Winchester Virginia, an area located in the Shenandoah
Valley in Virginia that is rife with folklore, ghost tales, folk magic and lore. His father was part Lakota Native American and
his culture is Southern and Appalachian. His mother was born in a slave quarter on a plantation called “The Hollingsworth Place”
in 1934 where a freed slave affectionately known as “Miss Granny” was both her midwife and spiritual God-Mother. All of these
distinctive elements formed the foundations of his cultural spirituality and magical practices as a teacher of “veil” practices
that focus on spirit work and conjure.
