WINTER 2020

Ren's approach to animistic practice.

Bring your practice to life.

You’ve been looking at a lot of weird websites and following all sorts of witchy folks on social media. You’ve got the stack of books on meditation and shamanic journeying. You know you should have a spiritual practice, but you’ve gathered so much information, it’s hard to know what to prioritize.

But then, here I am offering even more information.

Animistic practice? Ooh, I’ve heard of animism. Maybe I need to be practicing that, too! 

I love your insatiable desire for deeper waters, free spirit. I love it. And, here’s the good news. Animism isn’t just another cool thing to add to your ever-growing want-to-do list. Animistic spiritwork offers a new way of relating to your want-to-do list, of communicating with your desires, and bringing your spiritual journey to life.

Through animistic spiritwork, we can ask our spiritual practice what it wants. More importantly: we can ask it why. What are we practicing for? Is our spirituality just a hobby, or do all of these pieces we’ve been gathering add up to something more?

Who is this for?

Who is this for?

This class is for folks of any religious or spiritual background who are interested in developing or deepening their spiritual practice through animism. Atheists can have a spiritual practice, too. 

This class is not for people who will be offended to learn that my background is traditional witchcraft. Questions about witchcraft from participants will be welcome.

This class is for beginners and advanced practitioners alike. Beginners will enjoy the simple, straight-forward, easy-to-understand language and approach. Advanced practitioners will recognize that simplicity is another word for clarity—something hard-won in the hidden realms.

Folks who finish this free training @freespiritwork will be invited to continue their studies if they wish with an affordable longer series @simplespiritwork, where we’ll be working together to create a unique daily spiritual practice that sticks!

This class is not for people who are going to be mad if after this experience I offer four more weeks of lessons, training, and support for $79 with need-based scholarships available. 

This class is for adults who know how to use Instagram or are willing to teach themselves.

This class is not for bigots, trolls, or assholes.

Who is Ren?

Who is Ren?

Howdy, free spirit! I’m Ren Zatopek, a traditional spiritworker from Texas, long-time west coast witch, now living in beautiful North Carolina. I look a bit younger and sweeter than I really am. I take that back. I am genuinely the sweetest. I’m sweetly humming a tune as we dig through mounds of ancestral skulls together, weeping sticky tears that look like crude oil and starlight. You’re getting tired, and I’m there to put an arm around your shoulder and say, “Keep digging, friend!”💀

In my experience, most of the time, sweet, sensitive support is just what’s needed to help folks through their usual and unusual blocks. Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down! 🎵 I’m your mystical Mary Poppins complete with magic purse of infinite depth and ability to turn chalk drawings into portals to the Hidden World.

I also am inclined to swearing like a sailor, shape-shifting around bonfires, and studying a variety of martial arts…which may or may not be like Mary Poppins, because really, what do we know about Mary? She might be into swords and sailors. She’s a very mysterious witch.

“Folks, particularly you woo-woo witchy types, you really need to check this out!

There are very few people I would trust to teach this type of work as much as I trust Ren Zatopek. She is wildly brilliant, hilarious, radically inclusive, inclusively radical, a truly powerful witch, and an all around awesome person.

For folks like me who are fascinated by this, but a bit resistant to woo-woo witchiness, Ren is really splendid at helping us re-frame how we see and think of concepts like Spirit–part of her welcoming vibe.

This course gives you a really great sense of who Ren is and how she teaches. You’ll instantly see why folks adore her so much.”
