Pleasures of Beltane 2023 Teaching Team
Hello, I’m Sharon Pink and I live my time on Squamish, Musqueam, Tsleil Waututh, Skowlitz and Leq’a:mel territory, striving to be a respectful guest through reparations, listening, tending the earth and responding to calls to action.
My name is Flame and I use she/her as my pronouns. I was born in the San Francisco Bay Area and have lived here all my life. I moved to San Francisco city in 1977 and became a punk rocker involved in the early days of the San Francisco punk rock, leather, and kink scene and had a band named Animal Things. I am part of BASiL (Bay Area Sober in Leather) and am a titleholder for them. I am SF Sober Kinkster 2018. I am a published author, most recently in the anthology by Gede Parma called "Elements of Magic" in which I wrote the chapter on Divination. I also have a memoir/novel called "Our Lady of the Gutters".
I’m grateful to be rooted in queer, witchcraft, social and environmental justice, BDSM and polyamorous communities in Amerika and Australia, which support and shape me and my connections in the web.
I tip my hat to all those who carved the paths I walk and work to keep the trails warm for those that will come, especially the creatives and non-conformists. I’ve educated and entertained for over 25 years from in front of a room, on stage and behind a radio desk or typewriter and continue to find affinity to folks with a radical analysis of Empire, Patriarchy and Capital. I've recently arrived in my father's country and have hosted workshops, facilitated discussion, co-created path and priestexx’d rituals at witchcamps, BDSM/kink/leather events, intentional communities and my own, self-produced programs across Turtle Island/North Amerika.
Hi, y’all! My name is Jynx (she/her), and I live in the rightful lands of the Haudenosaunee, Osage, Shawnee, Hopewell, Seneca, and Monongahela peoples - what is now known as Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in Turtle Island/U.S.A. As an active member within the local Reclaiming community and SpiralHeart witchcamp, I strive to live each aspect of my life with radical authenticity in this anarcho-feminist social justice tradition as it grows in love and accountability. I have the honor of serving as SpiralHeart's BIPOC Mentor and as the camp's Bower Priestess.
