Italy's Witches and Medicine Women,  the name of Karyn Crisis' forthcoming book, is based on her research while living among locals in Italy (the Ligure Region of Italy, Toscana area, Benevento and Sanniti area, Rome, and Udine region, and more).  This lecture focuses on the "categories" of Italian Witches in the regions of Emilia Romagna, Liguria and Campania as well as specific curing techniques:  the releasing of "il Malocchio" (the evil eye) and  and using water to release illness among others.  Karyn will demonstrate the healing technique featured in the black-and-white photos from Sardinia that she learned in the southern region of Campania.

Karyn Crisis is  a spiritual Medium, channeling guidance from the Spirit world. Karyn is a Teacher of Mediumship (the system of channeling and communicating with the Spirit World based on the Master Teachings)and  has trained people in many occult practices to deepen and clarify their own work with the Spirit world such as: witches, healers, empaths,  modern shaman and druids, ghost hunters, tarot readers, spiritualists, skeptics, and psychic seekers. Her San Francisco-based workshops have been a popular and integral part of the Spiritualist community in the Bay Area.

Karyn’s  Writings are  currently focused on reclaiming Ancient Wisdom received through the Old Ways. This feminine, receptive practice of devotional Mediumship offers empowerment in our modern times through connecting us to our still-living legacy of the Medicine Women, Wise Women, and “Witches” of the past, as well as to their Goddess Guides and Teachers.  Karyn’s own Guides are working with her to document these Master Teachings as they have been taught by Goddess Guides since ancient times.
