& Chief Trickster at Coyote Network News
Expand your range of responsiveness by opening to mythological mischief, unpredictable wisdom and trustworthy intuition.
We all love freedom. To cultivate an ever-expanding repertoire of responses is to be allied with freedom and nature’s “evolutionary ingenuity,” which is another name for the Trickster — the characteristic that comes alive in difficult circumstances and that loves against all odds.
Your Trickster can help you shape-shift your reality, starting with cultivating your linguistic, metaphoric and storytelling agility. When you change the metaphor, you change the story and literally change the world. How we tell our story — personal and collective — has everything to do with outcome.
Trickster Medicine is not the only medicine or practice, but it is the sine qua non, because it renders all the other practices more effective. Trickster is one of the greatest teachers of the spiritual path AND the path of social influence. With Trickster 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 truly unique online event to kick off your 2016 — on the right (or left?) foot — with a wildly unpredictable agent of evolution: Caroline Casey, maestra of what she calls the “astro*mytho* guiding meta-narrative,” who will take you into the heart of Trickster Medicine.
Caroline will invite you to compost self-sabotage into nutrients for your unpredictable and wildly creative life in 2016. She’ll show you how to add spice and sizzle to all that has become routine and dare you to surprise yourself.
As you’re liberated, you help liberate others. There is no prison for the unexpected!
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 were meant to be. This event serves as the magical invitation for your eager genius to come alive!
Magic is simply a willingness to collaborate with everything; so we move our emotional default-setting from “status quo"to “Woof-Woof-Wanna-Play?!"
In this free mini-workshop, Caroline will show you how you can animate your Trickster skill set and fill your magic backpack with Reverent Unpredictability, which in language, metaphor and action liberate everyone.
The truth is that both God and Goddess like to laugh and bless those who shake us out of self-inflicted, serious habits that are keeping us stuck.
When we ally with Trickster, we free up the evolutionary life force within us. We can dance through the dueling dualisms to find the coherent Whole at the heart of any moment.
In this frolicking, one-hour virtual event with one of the world’s great magic-makers, you’ll dive into the power of the Trickster energy and:
- Understand why it is so key to your spiritual liberation and the liberation of our world, especially in times that are heavy and hard.
- Receive practices to expand the playfulness of your mind ao your words dance off your tongue.
- See how to become a more effective changemaker in our world by metabolizing the poisons of life and the world with a light heart.
- Discern the difference between the Con Man and the Trickster (the latter liberates us from the former).
- Find language that liberates your soul from old habits and opens you to a zestier experience of life.
Whether you are a seeker on the spiritual path, a veteran activist or a curious evolutionary, you’ll delight in the ways that Caroline illumines your 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 a new online journey she will be teaching called Way of the Trickster, a dynamic path of Pragmatic Mysticism, Democratic Animism and Applied Divination, for those averse to a middlin’ way who crave teachings that are spicy and caffeinated.
What People Are Saying about Caroline Casey
Caroline Casey says, “IT’S BETTER TO BE A TRICKSTER THAN A MARTYR.” 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.

What a fantabulous menu of guiding delight, portending rowdy unravelling and purposeful reconfiguration!!! Bless you for bringing these unique and timely gifts to our woe filled world, resurrecting deep aspirations to soar, transforming darkness into opportunities for new perception, all fueled by love — for this precious consciousness, when it sees clearly it is exquisite.

I am re-listening to our conversation. I feel like a weaver meeting a master Navajo weaver. Deep fun and learning! The threads you pull together of (gold and moss and ideas) and the patterns you create have given me a tapestry of great beauty, a cloak of protection, and a vision of what is possible. Even more amazing, I feel personally seen and honored by your words and insights. It is a rare and precious experience, to be truly seen.

I am still taking in the beautiful fullness of the reading you did for me... by the lights of the grand fire dance in the heavens right now. Thank you so much for the depths of your diving on my behalf. I appreciate your lovely and precise way with the world and your heart-full commitment to a sane, reverent life with a wonderful life for all children. I share your words with many and these describe the pillars of my life since forever. With grateful awe of the circle spiraling and your gift of astro-insight,
