We magic people all know what it's like to feel downtrodden, misunderstood, and woefully disheartened by the slog of life in conventional muggle society.
The muggles (DISCLAIMER: no one is truly and permanently a muggle. Every living being is actually intensely magical - but if someone is in denial about her magic, then she's functioning as a muggle and there's really no other way to say it, sad as it is) have about a zillion means of raining on our ecstatic enchanted parades.
I've seen dear friends of mine locked up for weeks in institutions simply for expressing too much raucous joy while in a state of kundalini awakening.
I've also seen fabulous magic people descend into addiction or depression because they just don't know how to make a sustainable living from their magic gifts in this muggle-dominated world.
I'm not going to sit idly by while the Nothing destroys my people. I'm committed to bringing magic back to its rightful place at the center of our culture and helping magic people to flourish.
The Nothing = the conditioned negative feelings and beliefs within all of us fear, self-pity, anxiety, self-doubt, resentment, worry, ignorance in all its forms -- and the relentlessly boring, violent, ugly, consumerist world that springs up when people put their trust in the Nothing instead of in their magic. The Nothing is also the source of all the Static that slows us down in working on our Things.
In the Outlaw Court we're sparking a large-scale Rebirth of Magic (i.e., a Renaissance - from the French "naissance" meaning "birth" and the prefix "re" meaning "again"). And I'm inviting you to bring your fuel to the Renaissance-ing Fire at the cozy and dangerous outpost I'm founding for magic renegades who have a dear Thing that they want to bring forth into the world.
A Thing = a masterpiece, a business, a project, a calling, a relationship, a comedy troupe, a family, a dog show, a knitting group - could be any or all or none of these or something else. Magic people just have Things they need to bring forth. That's how the Nothing gets dissolved and how the Renaissance thrives. Through the Things magic people do.
The Nothing is practically impossible for us each to fight alone. Many of us magic people have tragically gone crazy or gotten addicted to drugs or other numbing agents in the effort to survive the fight solo.
Yet together - we can dissolve the power of the Nothing in our own hearts, thereby liberating ourselves and those around us. Eventually we can reclaim this whole green globe for the reign of Magic, Imagination, Hotness, and Love - all while staying sane and thriving in the material realm.
So what exactly is the Outlaw Court?
The Outlaw Court is a (virtual, imaginal) ramshackle-yet-strangely-opulent outpost in a primeval forest presided over by a benevolent-yet-also-unspeakably-wicked fairy queen (ahem, c'est moi) where magic people from all over the earth (and some other planets and dimensions too, to be honest) band together around a roaring hearth to outwit the soul-crushing Nothing and make GIANT progress on the projects that matter most to us.

It's the place where we take our magic and turn it into power - power to make stuff happen while feeling easeful and grand.
In other words, the Outlaw Court is a secret Facebook group where you get massive support for your magic and your Thing. To find out more about the forms in which that support manifests, read on.
Yeah, but what's the vibe like?
The vibe is playful and weird and sexy and intimate. It's very fun and smart and quite intensely wonderful.
The Outlaw Court, unlike it's vast mega-festival of a sister group, The Dreamer's Tantra (7000+ members and counting! all of whom you are certainly welcome to join if you haven't already!) is a limited-membership, private, adults-only (18+) affair dedicated to serious magic, serious business, and serious fun. Seriously.
At the Outlaw Court, you don't need to downplay your strength or your vulnerability at all.
You can show up in your full radiant regalia or just lay in a pile of misery on the floor. Either way you'll get love and attention for all the parts of yourself and your dreams that need it.
The Outlaw Court proudly shelters and supports magic people of all stripes and flavors:
- dreamers of dreams
- mad artists
- visionary poets
- Taoist sages
- wild beasts
- everyone else who is awesome
- - and obviously! - every sort of fairy
What You Get as a Courtier in the Outlaw Court
In 2013 - 2014 Outlaw Courtiers receive:
- free access to frequent Courtier-led Conjurings
Conjurings = we Courtiers gather in a Google hangout, review our progress on our Thing, celebrate our advances, brainstorm, and decide on one action step we'll each complete on our Thing before the next Conjuring.
- free access to weekly Coaching Circles offered by me (these Coaching Circles will cost more than $25 a pop for non-courtiers).
Coaching Circles = intimate group events wherein I give exquisite attention to individual Courtiers to individually to draw out their deepest desires and alchemize that desire into love and power.
- eligibility for the Magical Monthly Gifting
The Magical Monthly Gifting = each month, it's my good pleasure to choose a different Courtier to gift with a lump sum that I've decided to set aside by earmarking a $3 portion of what comes in from each Courtier's subscription fees. So for example - when we get up to 1000 Courtiers in the group, the Magical Monthly Gifting I'll be able to award will be $3000.
NOTE: for official purposes, I need to mention that the Magical Monthly Gifting is not a lottery or even a guarantee. It's just me telling you about something I happen to plan to do with a part of each subscription fee that I receive. The subscription payments, once I receive them, will be legally mine (as in, I'll be taxed on them as income). It just so happens that I like to give, so I plan to give. And I'm letting you know that. It could also be that I get taken over by a non-gifting virus and decide not to do the Magical Monthly Gifting at all. Very unlikely, but possible. And that non-gifting, though tragic and lamentable, would be my legal right, because it's my own personal taxed income that I can choose to gift or not gift. So, just a heads up, folks.
- access to an ever-growing, brilliantly-curated Magic Library of rare books, music, and video resources.
The Magic Library = a page in the Files section of the Outlaw Court secret Facebook group with links to astounding riches to fuel your growth.
- and last but certainly not least: a vibrant, intimate, and loving forum full of magic people from around the world who've been self-selected for their willingness to dissolve the Nothing in themselves and others and bring about the Rebirth of Magic.
What Will Happen in the Outlaw Court
Multidimensional breakthroughs. Explosive revelations. Dissolution of blocks and fears. The shrinking of the Nothing. The nurturing of businesses and the makings of the monies. The healing of battle wounds. The births of tantric dragon bodhisattvas. The fulfillment of goals and wishes. Much rejoicing.
The Outlaw Court - though very friendly and cozy - is not for everyone.
We're about the pragmatic practice of real-life emotional alchemy and gritty, bloody, sexy, fierce compassion - and not so so so much about "love & light!" and feel-good memes (except, you know, when we are).
This means that the Outlaw Court is best for magic people who are self-responsible adults (18+ only - sorry, kids) and who have a general tantric orientation towards life (i.e., you embrace all phenomenon- including passionate desire and anger and heartbreak as part of your path).
"So how much does this cost?"
Pioneer Courtiers who join in the months of October, November and December 2013 will enjoy a subscription rate of just $13 a month, and just so you know - $3 out of each payment I'll be setting aside to my Magical Monthly Gifting. The Pioneer Courtiers will continue to enjoy this same $13 per month subscription rate throughout their stay at the Outlaw Court.
Courtiers who join after 2013 will enjoy a higher subscription rate. 'Cause thems the breaks.
"What if I sign up and then change my mind and want out?"
Mind-changing is cool. Plus, I only want you to be in the Outlaw Court if you really want to be there. So if you decide it's not for you, send me an email at email@example.com and I'll cancel your subscription payment for all future months and then take you out of the group and wish you very happy magic travels. I won't be offering refunds for subscription payments that have already processed, though. So if you join us, you'll be at least paying for one month's subscription.
"Okay, I'm in. Where do I join?"
Initiation into the Outlaw Court has four steps. Three of which you do - one of which I do.
Please allow up to 72 hours for the whole process to happen - right now I'm a one-woman show who handles all administrative stuff solo.
NOTE: In addition to being a one-woman show, I'm also a tad absent-minded (kind of like Merlin - so many potions to brew, so little time!). So if it seems to you like there's a snag in the process or it's taking longer than 72 hours for your add to the group to go through - please don't stress. Just send me lots of love and another email and / or Facebook message to remind me to add you. Thank you.
1) Click the PayPal "Subscribe" button below and enter your debit, credit card, or PayPal account information. I'll receive an email verifying your subscription payment.
2) After you enter your payment for subscription, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading "I'm ready for the Outlaw Court." Include in the email your name on Facebook (very important so I can friend you and add you to the group!). Also include in the email your answers to the following three questions so that I can introduce you to the group:
- a) How has magic evidenced itself so far in your life?
- b) What is your Thing, or what might your Thing be?
- c) What are your super-powers?
3) Accept my Facebook friend request (very important - this step has to happen in order for me to add you to the group!). My Facebook friend request should appear for you within 48 hours. You can also get proactive about it and send me a friend request. Oooh la la! So exciting! My name on Facebook is Carolyn Elliott. Same as my actual name.
NOTE: If we're already Facebook friends it's a very good idea to send me a Facebook message and be like "Hey, what's up Carolyn? I subscribed to the Outlaw Court! Yay! Add me to the secret group!"
4) I add you to the group, introduce you to the gang of Courtiers using the answers to the questions you sent me , and the adventure begins!
