New Service Rates Starting October 1, 2016

For eight years now, the base rate for services at The Sojourner has been $30/half hour  or a base rate of $1/minute.  However, this fell way below the standard local rate for services of this kind.  It’s past time for a cost of living increase!

Starting October 1, our standard service cost will become $40/half hour and $75/hour.

However, during our Psychic Reading and Healing Fair we encourage you to explore new experiences and modalities, so we are offering a “Sampler Ticket” at the old rate.

  • Sample Tickets for $60 redeem for two sessions:
  • a 30 minute session with the Reiki Energy healer of your choice.
  • and 30 minute private session with the Psychic of your choice
  • OR you may attend an hour long Pendulum Reading class, or a Tea-leaf reading party.

We are also booking for individual sessions at $40 and $75, with many options for style of psychic reading and a variety of healing modalities. Remember that the loger the session, the more thorough and effective the experience can be.

Appointments will be scheduled throughout the weekend, and we’ll take walk-ins as we are able. Book your appointment early!

So far, we have scheduled the following professionals:

Angelica – Energy Worx and The Sojo Circle- Angel Oracle Card Readings and Reiki Energy Healing

Aileen Peterson – Kundalini Reiki, Sound healing, Crystal Healing

Courtney Varnadoe – The Sojourner – Tea Leaf Reading Parties and interpretations

The members of the Sojo Circle are also contributing their fees as a fundraiser for their coven’s Education Fund, which aids in the responsible training of our communities witches and clergy. To further that goal, crystal waters, refreshing herbal lemonade drinks and witchy baked goods will be available by donation, offered by the witches of The Sojo Circle.

The Sojourner Presents: A Witches’ Carnival

Hello Sojourners!

sWe are back and mostly recovered from our trip to Pagan Pride last weekend in Raleigh. It was wonderful to see old friends and meet new faces. We love it every year and this year was no exception.We brought a few things home with us like our statuary. We’ve got statuary from Norse, Celtic, Egyptian, Greek, Hindu and Other pantheons. Come give them a good home! We also have flower crowns, hagstones, and other new inventory additions that help support the local community. Sales of our flower crowns go directly to the Sojo Circle Coven Education Fund. This helps us bring in visiting authors like Jason Mankey and Christopher Penczak, as well as send some of our members for certification in Priest and Priestesshood. Soon we hope to have legal clergy among our members. All of this directly benefits the community and helps us help others!


Baldur from the Norse Tradition


Speaking of community, this year we are throwing a public Halloween bash! Welcome to the Witches’ Carnival, a place of macabre whimsy and forbidden magic. The Carnival will be here for one night only, no encores, and then will go dark. As this will be a night of debauchery and wicked fun we ask that all attendees be over the age of 21. Wristbands will be given at the door, and Ids will be checked. We will have Priceless Objects up for raffle, Traditional Games ( with prizes!), Fortune Tellers, and more. Like in Halloween events past we will have a costume competition, this year with a twist.  Our Categories include:

  • Burlesque and Exotic Attractions
  • Freakshow
  • Step Right Up! Side Show Curiosities
  • Menagerie Imaginarium
  • Fortune Tellers and Forbidden Magic

Please bring your own devilish spirits to consume as none will be provided for you. Wrap yourself in wonder as you prepare to face the marvels that await you! Leave all caution at the door to be retrieved on the way home. Join us the 29th of October, from 7pm- until the last stroke of Midnight.


Want in on the Act?

We are in need of volunteers to bring this magnificent vision to life and unlife. We need Carnival snacks, beverages, people to run games and do readings as well as donations for raffling. We will happily promote any business who would like to donate a prize basket or item. Proceeds go to The Sojo Circle Coven’s Education Fund.

The Sojo News: Pagan Pride Raleigh!

Prepare yourselves, Sojourners!


This weekend, September 17th and 18th, is the Pagan Pride Days Festival at 974 Youth Center Drive in Raleigh, at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds! This is an annual event that draws local area community to celebrate together in the spirit of unity.

From their website: “The Central NC Pagan Pride Days Festival attracts more than 4000 pagans, pagan friends and the pagan curious every year. Open to the general public, this autumn celebration offers two days of both entertainment and education through social, commercial and spiritual activities. All are welcome to join or observe rituals, attend workshops, meet local groups, and much more, all in a festival environment full of vendors, music, and fun.

As a community, we work together to support many local non-profits during this event: The entry fee to the event is one canned or non-perishable good or $1 to support the Food Bank of Central NC. Every year we raise thousands of pounds of food to donate, and try to up the number every year! We also accept appointments for a blood drive during the event with The Red Cross. This is in addition to numerous animal rescues and refuges accepting donations and animal sponsorships during the event!


We will be vending at this lovely event again this year in our usual location, directly across the circle from the main entrance gate. We hope to see your bright and smiling faces there!

We have received LOTS and LOTS of new inventory in time for the event, with more on the way!

The Sojo News: Psychic Readings, Drum Circle, New Merchandise!

So at this point we are a GO with our events, but check on our Facebook page for updates should things change. LABOR DAY MONDAY WE ARE CLOSED.14117882_10157294299880123_1925167264822237751_n

In 5-points plaza on Friday night the Freeboot Friday party is on, and throughout Uptown, join us for First Friday Artwalk. At the Sojourner, we will host a drum-circle and party with special guest, Edward Zula, here to introduce himself, and take private client appointments for Psychometry and Spirit Communication. He currently only has an 8:00 time-slot available, so call ahead to claim it.

Edward Zula Appointment Times Available:
FRIDAY, September 2, 8:00pm
SATURDAY, September 3, 12:00-4:00
$30 per half hour. (See below for details.)

Typically Edward meets with clients for 60-90 minutes.  However it’s easy for him to focus on one area of concern during a shorter reading. Edward’s goal is for clients to experience some relief, affirmation, and reassurance after meeting with him.

1865215E-5452-4951-BDFF-AAF34538718FEdward Zula has been providing private readings, clarity, and comfort to his Los Angeles clients for more than thirty years.  He uses psychometry (reading energy from objects and photos), clairsentience, and spirit communication to help clients with questions about relationships, career, important life decisions, and help resolve grief and loss. In his readings he uses cards, a pendulum, meditation, and any sentimental or meaningful objects the client wishes to share. He explains that he does not “see” spirits standing over anyone’s shoulder as a traditional medium might, but rather feels their presence, often hears them, and gets a sense of their physical appearance with his eyes closed.
