SOCRadio series Magick Lab Academy opened this week with an announcement by NYC Wiccan Family Temple founder Reverend Starr Ann RavenHawk. The segment was recorded on Wednesday, August 30, shortly after Hurricane Harvey hit with such devastating force on the Houston area. Reverend Ravenhawk will be starting a GoFundMe page to bring more than positive thoughts to the victims. She wants her fellow magicians to pay their magic forward with Witches Giving Back. The fundraiser will join such efforts like NO KIDS GO HUNGRY NY, which gets donations from the proceeds of the NYC Witches Halloween Masquerade Ball on Oct. 31st.
Before the Magick Lab launched into its topic for the evening, the magic of “Game of Thrones,” Starr told the hosts she almost drove to the flooded area herself in her minivan, which she’d done in similar situations.
“Many of our Temple, Covens, Groups, Solitaries etc has given to many a fund over the years and no one knows it was us giving back,” Starr wrote to her Facebook page when she first thought of the idea. “Not patting ourselves on the back, but simply saying we are here for each other in time of need.
“My heart goes out to all those in the path of Hurricane Harvey and as I sit here, I do not like that feeling of helplessness, I feel the need for us to help if we can. Whether by deeds, actions or money. I ask myself, what can I do? Then, what can WE do, because WE are many STRONG.
“When we needed help in NY after Hurricane Sandy, many from around the country helped so with that in mind let’s see what we can do.”
The NYC group’s ethos is already reverberating through up the Hudson River. Krystal Madison, The Witch of Sleepy Hollow joined the efforts almost before it Rev. Starr finished typing it. Psychics are like that.
“Witches are priests and priestesses of the Earth, and priests and priestesses of the people,” said during an earlier appearance on Magick Lab. “For centuries, we have served our communities in varying capacities; from helping a couple conceive a child to healing the sick. As servants, we have a responsibility to help not just our local communities but or national and international communities.
We are here. We have always been here. And we are here to help”.
The Festival of Witches and the Sleepy Hollow Black Hat Society have a long tradition of giving back to the community. They donated more than $2,500 worth of canned and non-perishable items to the Tarrytown/Sleepy Hollow Community Food Pantry. The Sleepy Hollow Black Hat Society is currently raising money for a “little boy in upstate New York who needs a heart replacement, and are collecting personal care items and snacks, as well as new, unused stuffed animals, coloring books and crayons for ‘Blessing Bags’ for those children and their families who have been displaced by the recent Hurricanes.”
Krystal asks that contributions be mailed to: Sleepy Hollow Black Hat Society 45 Beekman Avenue Suite # 8341 Sleepy Hollow, New York 10591

Magick Lab explores and explains paranormal practices the easy way: straight talk without the gobbledygook of religion or faith. The show focuses on the non-secular mechanics of manifestation, preservation and disintegration with an emphasis on fast and easy non-denominational spellwork. There is no “dark” or “white” magic in Magick Lab, but a rainbow range of practical rituals. For an hour and a half each week, Magick Lab makes magick accessible to everyone.
The show also hosts occult experts discussing their specialties. On their premiere show, “How Karma effects the Law of Attraction and Magick,” they hosted voodoo expert Caiza D. Delashadeo of Mysts & Shadows. Astrology expert James David Wade, the Pisces Prince, joined them to discuss Venus Retrograde for the second.
Marie recently hosted gnostic expert Ana Divina, as well as the spiritually gifted musicians Karen Elaine and Gabe Hughes, House of Dreaming’s Madam X, Law of Attraction expert Habib Prince, reiki healer and intuitive lightworker Terry Robnett, occult specialists Lisa Derrick and Greg Bismarck, and author and voodoo filmmaker Lilith Sinclair.
