a mentorship circle for mystics making money
The Magician’s Table Vulture Coven is a 3-month container for being unapologetically witnessed in your desire for (and fear of) sustainable growth.
Limited to 13 participants plus me, the Vulture Coven is deeply intimate on purpose. You choose to let yourself be seen. You choose to show up. You choose to experience one another in your shared aliveness.
The Vulture Coven is a crucible to help you distill your precious offering into something more potent, and thus probably more terrifying to you.
The Vulture Coven is a table for humans sharing a mysterious connection to gather with love, respect, and sovereignty, and share their alive genius with one another.
The Vulture Coven is a shadow work cauldron for Vulture Magic and expanding your capacity for all sensation and aliveness.
Your hunger is your service. Would you ask a vulture not to feast? What are you hungry for? The Vulture Coven is for you if you’re hungry to feel your gifts move through you… more.
What is Vulture Magic?
Vulture Magic is a framework that Britten first named and introduced on Moon to Moon in spring of 2021, along with The Emergent No. Inspired by vultures in the midst of a breakup, Britten imagined herself eating the dead carcass of her relationship. Rather than feeling stagnant with sadness, she felt inspired by the vision of herself with grease dripping down her chin onto her breasts, ferocious with hunger, impregnating herself with the juices of Death in order to seed new life.
To learn more about Vulture Magic, check out this episode with singer-songwriter Chelsea Wolfe, one of many who has found it deeply inspirational as a creative framework for letting go.
The Vulture Coven is a sibling offering to the original The Magician’s Table: The Workshop Circle for Emerging Readers, which is offered in the spring following the equinox. Moving into its fourth (Emperor) year, “TMT” is a powerhouse offering that Britten channeled fully formed one morning on a run. The format of the vision is that there are 12 participants for each cohort, who apply and receive their seat based not on their experience but on the resonance of their application. The sincere dream of TMT is to support individuals in naming themselves magical beings. This is no small thing.
Each TMT cohort has what Britten calls a 13th Reader: someone who is both a participant as well as a space holder with and for Britten. Britten chooses someone from within her current community who she trusts to hold such an electric space and keep it grounded in its core values of love, care, and devotion. The 13th Reader for the Vulture Coven is Samar Jade, who you can meet by scrolling below.
The Vulture Coven is more specifically for those who are hungry to grow their name and build a sustainable practice, but who are as terrified to find out how golden they really are as they are to fail publicly and spectacularly.
The spirit of this offering is to offer a community wisdom space for alchemizing your relationship to the conscious and unconscious fears and desires you have about being supported for your magical gifts in the world. Like the spring intensive, TMT Vulture Coven grows self-trust and self-love through showing up regularly in the beauty of your emergent truth.
Our magical phrase will be: Vultures got to eat! What wants to die? Let us feast!
It is a deeply vulnerable thing to want to be paid, to want to be seen, to want to grow. There is an intelligence to the reasons we fear having money, “success,” and visibility. The Vulture Coven is a place for you to discover your own way to be a “business person” that’s actually just an extension of the ways you do being human.
The ancient Egyptians saw vultures as female-bodied beings who became pregnant on their own. In this way, the vulture was symbolic of (re-)birthing oneself. My vision for this Vulture Coven is that when you complete you feel pregnant with yourself.
In this space, we will feast on failure. We will feast on disappointment. We will feast on shame. We’ll feast on grief, fear, and insecurity. The drippings from our feasting will run down our chins as we toast to one another in our aliveness.
LEARNING COmponents & Dates
There will be an Initiatory Weekend on September 23-24 and we will gather 12-3 CST both days.
Then there will be nine (9) Wednesday vocalization sessions starting Wednesday, September 27 through December 6. We’ll gather from 10-11:30 AM CST. Attendance is mandatory because your showing up is a massive part of this spell for self-empowerment.
Vocalization sessions follow a very specific structure and frequency which we will explore during the Initiatory Weekend. Each live gathering is an electrifying growth space because everyone’s voice is centered and everyone gets to be witnessed and celebrated. Each week becomes a space for laughing, crying, shedding, and expanding.
Two Wednesdays off: Nov 1 or Nov 22.
There will also be 2 bonus meetups for Q & A and more unstructured conversation: 10/27 and 12/1. Also 10 AM CST.
One of the most challenging parts of being a Magical Person is finding community among like-minded people who share your commitment and spiritual curiosity. That’s why I created a built-in community within this container. You will meet in pairs outside of class to discuss weekly topics, to grow relationships, to practice reading for each other, and to witness each other in evolution.
These 12 weekly readings give you the experience to figure out what to engage with and listen to the offering wanting to move through you. Moreover, you will each give one another written testimonials which you can keep and post to your booking page if you ever want one.
As a bonus, you are literally receiving readings every week, which is deeply nourishing (and needed), and gives you the unique opportunity to gain insights in your life through multiple modalities.
Each week after our gathering, I will send out an audio lesson and handout with topics to explore, questions to ask yourself, writing prompts to create, and/or a ritual exercise to try. The topics and themes cover the range of experiences you will encounter as a creator with alive offerings.
This curriculum is fiercely alive and will take you to corners of yourself that you are now ready to meet and honor. See below for the working curriculum.
Everyone will be at different points along the passage, and there will be no expectation for people to “catch up” or compete with one another. The goal is to progress along from where you start, not to meet a common destination.
An Alumni Community
Upon completion of this experience, you will have new magical colleagues to conspire and commiserate with. This is one of the ultimate secret gifts of this investment.
You will also become part of The Magician’s Table broader constellation of sincere, clever, big-hearted, visionary people that make up The Magician’s Table. This network can support and nourish you in mysterious and expansive ways that you currently can’t even imagine.
The Magician’s Table has a highly potent frequency that somehow offers each participant precisely the medicine and the magic they most crave, whether they think they’re “ready” for it or not. This brand new iteration is both emergent and long-awaited.
The following is a teaser. What I’ll be sharing has been growing in me for years, much never before spoken or taught. I’ve spent thousands of dollars on business coaching to find out that it’s extremely important for me to shit out the vast majority of what people teach and transform the remains into my own wild templates. I deeply dislike “magical business” language that co-opts magical words to apply to the same old deadening capitalist principles. This is not what I’m interested in.
My desire is to transmit my own gnosis in ways that support you in finding your own wild templates that belong to your body, your chart, your body graph, your spirit, your dreams, and your eco-systems.
Initiatory Weekend – top secret
Week 1: Connecting to the frequencies that hold you and support you: love, Spirit, your guides, your channel, your modalities, your loving ancestors…
Week 2: You Are Not For Everyone! So who are you serving?
Week 3: No One Else is You! So who are you and what do you offer?
Week 4: Your Offering is a Sentient Being, in other words: it’s not about you as much as how you listen to, respond to, and steward what wants to live through you
Week 5: Promo Magic Part 1: Listening to the promo pathway, not the mind’s ideas about it
Week 6: Promo Magic Part 2: Capacity, self-care, and co-creating with the Past-Present-Future Self
Week 7: Promo Magic Part 3: Writing, vibe creating, & building energy that resonates with those meant for the offering
Week 8: Tending to emergence with love, humor, and wisdom
$1111, or $370/month for 3 months, $185/month for 6 months, or $123/month for 9 months. Participants are also asked to give Britten either one 2-hour reading or two 1-hour readings so she can receive your gifts and know your work.
There are 2 equity seats available for gentler tuition. These are reserved for magical people who identify as BIPOC, trans, single working moms, and/or disabled, and couldn’t join without assistance. Tuition is negotiable.
*** If you wish to enroll in both the Mentorship Circle and Moon to Moon, you get a $222 discount on one of them. Email Britten at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details about doing both.
*** Participants will be able to join Unshaming Libra, Unshaming Scorpio, and Unshaming Sag at no cost.
Enrollment is open and filling from the alumni community of The Magician’s Table spring intensive, who have first dibs.
If you are not an alum but wish to participate in the Vulture Coven, please fill out your application. On September 15, depending on how many seats are open, I will begin reviewing non-alum applications and accepting in the order received.
Why an application? The application has two functions:
1) To be sure that you understand what this is and isn’t, and to confirm that your will, your dreams, and your devotions are aligned with the visions for this container – this is how I protect the container and seal the magic for all of us.
2) To serve as the spell of your Yes, so you can witness yourself naming what it’s time to name.
Your Yes is a commitment to stop pretending that you don’t want more. As you turn to this container with your whole body, you will be utterly changed by it.
BRITTEN LARUE (she/her) is a transformational astrologer, teacher, and author.
A 3/5 Manifesting Generator with 7 defined centers and 2 motors connected to her throat, Britten is learning to understand herself as someone who – by showing up in her authentic presence – supports others in taking heart-leaps into the unknown.
Britten has been called by many names by TMT alums. Most recently, she was dubbed one cohort’s Ancient Spider Lady for the ways she spins webs and lays clusters of eggs for star kin to find each other. Each TMT cohort constellates as if by magic, a truth that will never cease to delight her.
Britten’s book Living Astrology will be published March 5, 2024, the day after her 45th birthday. The Moon will be in Capricorn – her natal Moon!
SAMAR JADE (they/them) is Black, queer, and gender-expansive. They are an academic, seer, and writer. They are a community assembler. They are also someone who has learned through their experience what it feels like to lose connection with themselves, their spirit, their power, and their magic.
It is through their experience teaching others, gathering in community, growing in the shadows, and failing that Samar named themself an ensoulment doula. An ensoulment doula is one who desires to help others along their path of transformation and acceptance of Soul and Self while here on earth. Samar creates expansive, brave spaces where communities exist in dynamic fullness. At the center of their calling is the work to elevate the voices of those who stand in liminality: queer, Black, femme and disabled being first.
Q & A
How do I know if this is for me? If it turns you on. If it scares you. If you want it. If you trust me and Samar. If you know this investment will flow right back to you in ways you cannot possibly fathom today.
This is not for folks who think they “should” do it. This is not for you if you aren’t interested in shadow work and releasing attachment to patterns, narratives, and beliefs that result in stagnation. This is not for you if you invest in things in a transactional way with fixed expectations about results and outcomes.
You must be willing to open to some new level of vulnerability or else you’re not letting the experience in.
Can I do this as an alchemical intensive for my business if I’m an artist and not a reader or healer? That depends. Artists are magical. Can you transmit your gift to your partner each week for the pairing exchange? You must be able to offer your beautiful service to your colleagues so they can experience you and so you can experience you. What that looks like is your business not mine.
I’m currently not taking money for my intuitive art but I want to start. Will this experience help me with that? Yes. Absolutely. Everyone will come in at different points in this process. What will be shared is an unashamed desire to talk about money, visibility, and growth, and the willingness to let your fear of these be present in the group as well.
If what you really want right now is support in claiming your magic, and you have a high resistance to thinking about money, or it’s not yet appropriate to think about pricing, then you are meant for the spring intensive. Please get on the waiting list for updates. You will love it.
