SPRING 2020

simple+spiritwork

I can find my spiritual path.

what's in a name?

Have you ever wondered if you’re a hedgewitch, a kitchenwitch, or a sandwich? Am I a polytheist, pantheist, animist, or atheist? Scorpio? INFJ? Which Disney Princess am I? 

It’s normal to experience seasons of acute identity-hunger. What am I? Who am I? Why do I have to be a human right now? BEING HUMAN IS HARD.

Our spring Simple+Spiritwork session is: I CAN FIND MY SPIRITUAL PATH. This training is for freethinkers who want to explore their relationship to their spiritual path, identity, tradition, and sense of purpose—or lack of those things, or confusion around those things.

We’re going to discover what our spirit is really craving, beneath the desire for labels, recipes, and the outer trappings of tradition. We’ll clarify the difference between cultural sharing and cultural appropriation (theft). And, because my work is for free spirits, we’ll question common dogma around what it means to have a calling or greater purpose.

By the end of the training you’re going to know exactly what to do every day in order to become a conscious creator of a path, life, and legacy that feels ethical and exciting!

These sessions are $79.80 total with a 3-month payment plan available and no one turned away for lack of funds.I

Let's discover what our spirit is really craving, beneath the desire for labels, recipes, and the outer trappings of tradition.

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.

I have been humbly asking to meet my teachers for a while now. I’d looked at other courses in the magical arts, but when a friend shared Ren’s work, I thought: “Yes! This is what I’ve been looking for!” 

Ren verbalized a knowing I’ve had in my body that there’s more to this life—something deeper, something else—and invited me further into that mystery in a way that aligned with my ethics, values, and interests.

Ren creates a safe, inspirational, fun, and truly extraordinary environment where transformation, healing, and profound magic isn’t just possible, it’s inevitable. (Although, beware, her sense of humor might make you pee yourself!) I am seeing the beauty of simple things—the tendrils of ivy, a friend’s freckle, a trusted soup ladle…bread! 

I am noticing a huge uptick in my creativity, problem-solving, and experience of synchronicity. I feel empowered by what I don’t know and what I have yet to discover, rather than discouraged. I am trusting myself in a way that is new and astounding to me.

I experienced awesome growth during the winter trainings. I made bold choices that didn’t feel possible a few months ago. I feel stronger, lighter, clearer. 

I feel wild. I feel free.
