Do you find yourself reading your newsfeed with your mouth agape, wondering “What’s this world coming to?!”
Or maybe your response to the latest news cycle is a realization that we’re at a massive turning point and the universe is calling you to act and you’re fired up to bring the necessary change (whether in your life or in the political realm).
When enough is enough and the tolerable has become intolerable, you can turn to the wild, life-changing force of Trickster...
In this time of dire beauty — more than complaints, self-flagellation and angry mutterings — we ALL need a renaissance of liberating wisdom, enlivened through play...
The energy of the Trickster can free you, drawing on the power symbolized by Uranus — the revolutionary fire that destabilizes the status quo using humor and hilarity.
No more being beaten down by humorless doomsayers or distracted by the aspects of your life that no longer serve you. Let’s rise up and call forth what’s true, beautiful and magical instead!
Trickster is the antidote to the poisonous polarization, both personal and collective, which spirals us downward, says Caroline Casey, Chief Trickster at Coyote Network News.
Trickster isn’t frivolous, nor is it depressed by the status quo (no matter how dreadful or discouraging). Rather it seeks to liberate us and our world from outdated habits. It exists to turn old ideas upside down and reveal a path forward we never thought of or never thought possible...
Trickster does this through the power of unpredictability, thought... and word... and deed. We become enthusiastically available to participate in the “high renaissance.”
“When we ally with Trickster’s liberating magic,
we compost our conditioning into nutrients
for a personal renaissance.” — Caroline Casey
This is such a powerful time. Everything we do, think, and feel, tips the balance between devastation and beauty.
Ancient forms of navigation are coming alive again to guide us... back into the “choreography of creation.”
Through myth, we can access a wider wave of consciousness in service to our evolution.
In play, we can lead others with less angst and more delight.
Instead of engaging angry protests, we can dance with the collective mood, flexing and freeing ourselves and our world.
Trickster is one of the greatest teachers of the spiritual path AND the path of social influence. With this creative, playful (and formidable!) force backing you up, you can defuse conflicts, levitate into laughter and transform situations with verbal aikido.
So in the name of your freedom, we invite you to a unique online event with a dazzlingly unpredictable agent of change: Caroline Casey, maestra of the “astro*mytho* guiding meta-narrative.” She’ll take you into the heart of the Trickster Renaissance now underway.
If you want a far saner form of reverence to lead our society, then it’s time for the Trickster to work magic in your life and turn you into the change agent you are meant to be.
Magic is simply a willingness to collaborate with everything... so let’s move our emotional default-setting of “status quo” to “Woof-Woof-Wanna-Play?!”
In this frolicking hour with one of the world’s great magic-makers, you’ll dive into the power of Trickster energy and:
Whether you’re a seeker on the spiritual path, a veteran activist or a curious evolutionary, you’ll delight in Caroline’s illumination of the Trickster path to your true Self and a more magical world.
She’s been at the forefront of new-paradigm spirituality and in the trenches of Washington, DC politics since she was a wee little girl. She’s informed by astrological wizardry and social change-savvy, as well as a good dose of myth.
Her mind weaves a remarkable number of threads per minute into a new tapestry of possibility, all helping you to find true freedom.
Register for this exhilarating hour when you’ll also hear about an exciting online program she will be leading called The Trickster Training Mystery School, a liberating path of Pragmatic Mysticism, Democratic Animism and Applied Divination.
You are so cool.

I recently did a radio interview on KPFA out of San Francisco with a woman named Caroline Casey which was pretty much the most fun interview I’ve ever done — a sort of astral-cosmic freewheeling romp through big ideas. It was definitely the only interview I’ve ever done where I was writing down what SHE was saying as we spoke.
— Elizabeth Gilbert, Author
Kinship with all creation is Caroline Casey’s forte. I have learned so much from her about being in cahoots with the world. I love her for that. She reminds me to bring back my sense of humor even in "times of dire beauty.”
— Nadiya Nottingham, New York City/Dublin, Ireland
Caroline Casey’s artful use of language to convey great wisdom, both her own and that of the ages/stars, is uniquely liberating, inspiring and useful at this time of dire beauty to find one’s way to true authenticity and living one’s full potential for the benefit of all.
— Barbara, Bethesda, Maryland
Caroline Casey’s wisdom and whimsy are unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. When she unlocked radical truths in stories I’ve known since childhood, I began to understand their power for transformation. Sharp, pointed, but disarmingly charming.
— Anne, Columbia, South Carolina
