LupaHeadshot

As a professional speaker, workshop leader, panelist, artist and author I am a frequent contributor to events in the Pacific Northwest and elsewhere, and have been featured at events including FaerieWorlds, OryCon, PantheaCon, Curious Gallery, Pagan Spirit Gathering, Heartland Pagan Festival, GEAR Con, NewCon, SunFest, Pagan Pride, Geek Girl Con, Paganicon, and many others. I have also presented at individual book stores and other small venues. In addition to solo presentations I am also available as a participant and/or moderator for group panels. You may scroll further down the page to see upcoming appearances.

In official materials, please refer to me as Lupa, not Lupa Greenwolf. While I use Lupa Greenwolf in some online venues where I need to have a last name, I write and create art as Lupa.

I am available to present within the following categories, and have multiple presentations/workshops for each individual topic:

Category: Spirituality

–Totemism (basic and advanced, several presentations available)
–Science and spirituality
–Spiritual work with hides, bones and other animal parts
–Other nature paganism topics (shapeshifting dance, evolutionary ancestor spirits, altars of curiosity, and more)

Category: Geeky Interests

–“Nerdy By Nature” (or why it’s important for geeks to go outside)
–Cabinets of curiosity (historical and contemporary)
–Vulture culture (why hides, bones and other dead things fascinate us)

Category: General Appeal

–Creative self-employment and promotion
–Nonfiction writing and publishing
–Ecopsychology and ecotherapy, self-care skills
–Event planning and coordination (may include co-presenter)

Interactive Workshops/Activities

–Nature-based guided meditations and group rituals
–Hands-on workshops creating artwork from leather, bones and other natural materials
–Nature walks/guided hikes

I can also put together a presentation specifically for your event or shop.

The following perks are greatly appreciated if you’re able to provide some or all of them at your event or shop:

–Free/reduced admission to the event
–Travel expenses, food (I am an omnivore), and a place to stay ranging anywhere from a couch or tent to a hotel room (these are especially helpful for out of town events) – for events outside of the Northwest that require me to fly, covering travel expenses is a MUST, and outdoor events must provide me with shelter if I am not driving (and therefore not bringing my own tent/etc.)
–Opportunities to sign and sell my books (other than at my presentations) or display and sell my artwork (to include a spot in the vendor’s hall and/or space in the art show)
–A speaking fee/stipend, especially if there are no other opportunities for me to sell my artwork and/or books, or a majority cut of the workshop fees
–Active promotion of my presence at your event; I’ll be doing promotion on my end as well
–If your event is indoors, such as at a hotel, I appreciate having time to go find a park or other wild place to ground myself for a bit. This may mean scheduling an afternoon open so I can hop on public transit.

Interested in booking me for your event? Contact me today!

Upcoming Events

Please note some of these events are full weekend conventions in which you will need to purchase admission, either for the day I am presenting, or the entire weekend if you wish. Events that are standalone workshops at individual stores and other venues will have the word “Workshop” at the beginning of the title; the price for these may vary.
