A psycho-sensory historical walking adventure exploring our relationship with the Unseen
Public Tours run EVERY first Saturday @ 10am-1pm (April-November)
Book your spot!

What is magic? What is the occult? And why do hundreds of thousands of modern-day humans travel every year to a place called “Witch City?” Join local clairvoyant, DIY occult historian, and queer witch, Melissa Nierman, for a transformative walking adventure exploring society’s changing relationship with the Invisible World - past, present, and imaginal future - as well as our own direct connection with the Unseen.

Part seminar-style historical tour and part hands-on psycho-sensory experience, we’ll use Salem’s urban landscape as our classroom/ practice space visiting a thoughtfully-curated collection of sites - from pop-culture famous landmarks to soaring 400-year old trees to radical spiritual groups’ sacred sites of worship + burial. Special focus will be given to the Invisible World’s intersection with The Witch archetype and how collective beliefs around what is labelled as “occult” have both shaped + been shaped by the dominant institutions of our times. 

All tours open + close in front of modern feminist witch store, HausWitch, and journey almost 2-miles into the beautiful tree-lined streets of the McIntire District. Along the way, we’ll experiencesome sites traditionally through oral teaching and others more directly through our own innate psychic senses.

“Amazing! Just what I was looking for - it was like getting a ‘behind the scenes’ tour of Salem. Down to earth, thoughtful, and progressive. I've already recommended to my friends.”

“This was an incredible experience. I was struck by Melissa's degree of thoughtfulness and the skill with which she delivered this meaningful yet fun tour."
