Provide ethically mined crystals to the global market + empower women through the ancient magic of circle - yoga, crystal healing + sharing

by Olivia Wheldon in Bristol, England, United Kingdom


I'm Olivia and, having battled with severe anxiety, I never went on to university. Despite the times, society is still not advanced enough to recognise that you don't need a degree to achieve or be capable enough to do a job, which has made it near impossible to find work. As a result, I have freelanced on and off and scraped a living, so decided to found White Witch Collective, selling crystals and offering women's events. It has been the most rewarding work of my life. Every tiny interaction with my customers brings them so much joy + positivity, which is so gratifying. I am a strong believer in the metaphysical healing powers of crystals which, coupled with my events, brings so much goodness to my audience. I need your help to widen that audience, allowing more people to access crystal magic, wellbeing and the sisterhood!

With a yoga instructor named Sophie, I collaborate to bring women's circles to Bristol, though some have travelled from as far as London and Cardiff just to be present. These gatherings are extremely stirring, moving and powerful, and pose an opportunity for women to feel held, supported and safe to release what no longer serves them. Women show up, unite, grieve miscarriage, broken marriages, failed relationships, former selves. Women cry, let go, and feel part of something greater than themselves; part of the sisterhood. These gatherings entail restorative yoga, guided meditation, crystal healing, discussion and ritualistic touches such as writing down something we wish to let go of and burning in the candle flames. In the wake of feminism, tapping into the ancient magic of the women's circle is so profoundly empowering. Following sell-out events at Trika Yoga, Bristol, and in my flat, we are so inspired to take these healing events to the next level; to fund retreats + hold space for more women. We invite you to step into your feminine power!

Alongside this, I have made it my mission to provide ethically sourced crystals to the global market. Through months of careful research and meeting with suppliers, it's been made possible. In an unregulated industry such as this, face-to-face, honest relationships are crucial. As crystals are more and more in demand, I wish to continue to provide this service, but need initial investment so that I can afford the stock and continue with this passion. Crystals + women's circle tickets are sold via my online shop (whitewitchco.com).
