Witches are a product of the invisible world, and yet in Salem the visual symbol of The Witch is everywhere: plastered on police cars, taxi cabs, souvenir t-shirts, and tourist attractions. How can something thought of as “unreal” be so central to our material reality? Join local clairvoyant and DIY occult historian Melissa Nierman of NowAge Travel for an immersive small-group journey through the evolution of The Witch archetype - from a feared tool of persecution to a powerful modern identity and pop-culture phenomenon. Together, we’ll explore how our shared beliefs around the invisible world have both shaped and been shaped by the dominant institutions of our times.
