Fucking Magic #2 is a deep dive into childhood trauma and living with the legacy of surviving childhood sexual abuse. Grappling with betrayal and shame, holding space for what feels unresolvable, falling on knees in cathedrals and at holy wells, Fucking Magic #2 is an enactment of trauma magic, a spell to end cycles of violence and abuse. It is a search and a prayer for love in the face of intergenerational trauma. It is a discovery and a declaration of a different kind of love, one grounded in a refusal to abandon the self. Moving between Tkaronto / Toronto, Tiohtià:ke / Montréal and Éireann / Ireland, Fucking Magic #2 contemplates the power of place, the power of leaving, and the power of arriving for the first time. Listening to ancestors, learning lost language, and seeking healing for deep wounds, Fucking Magic #2 is grounded in cuimhne / memory and misneach / courage. Reckoning and grieving open space for the work of embodiment, pleasure, sexuality, desire, and breath. Prayers are answered and magic works. Fucking Magic #2 is a revelation of readiness and reclamation of power.
