You babes are in for such a treat with this interview! I recently started Ren’s two year apprenticeship and absolutely love her undogmatic, enchanting, practical and flexible approach. Here is what we talked about:
- Her background and story
- Talking to plants
- Spiritual hygiene and protection
- Creating meaningful and simple rituals
Ren Zatopek is a traditional spiritworker. Spiritwork is the art of communicating with the seen and unseen identities, ideas, and spirits of life, then working with them to create meaningful change, or to restore their capacity for change. Ren has worked full-time for over a decade in Los Angeles as a community spiritworker.
Ren is a graduate of the Institute of Psycho-Structural Balancing, a student of Rita and Griffin Ced and Orion Foxwood, an initiate of the Ced Tradition of Heretical Witchcraft and of Raven’s Cry Grove, Ár nDraíocht Féin, and an apprentice with the House of Brigh.
In 2016 Ren closed her private practice and began building an 8-year online program and community for free spirits all over the world with an interest in learning a non-dogmatic, flexible method of spiritwork that is accessible and useful to anyone regardless of cultural identity or lack of identity.
