What is it?
31 emails – one for each day in October
Monday to Thursday each week you will receive an email which will include a mixture of: the history behind and thoughts on the theme, journal and Instagram prompts, book recommendations, recipes, archetypes, links, and invitations to experience more wonder and delight.
Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays you will receive an email with a journal or Instagram prompt and an invitation for an adventure. These might include a guided meditation or a video or the invitation to a group movie date.
Some of the themes include:
- Why the hearth is such an important symbol for women.
- How thank you is the most magical spell of all.
- Why we love black cats and broomsticks.
- An invitation to start a practice that will begin to enchant your every day.
- Traveling by candlelight.
- Maleficent, The Big Bad Wolf, and why we love villains.
- Nine Women… Twelve’s Better. Putting out the intention to create your own circle of kindred spirits.
- And of course, Trick or Treat because we finish on Hallowe’en!
When you register you will be invited to join a private Facebook group. This means that we get to spend the whole month of October making magic together.

“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” – L.M. Montgomery
*A note for anyone living in the Southern Hemisphere – or even a very warm place in the Northern Hemisphere.
I know what you are thinking, because I currently live in Costa Rica: a place where it is sunny and hot every day! There is no autumn colour and there are definitely no pumpkin spiced lattes here. But this is partly why I have created this course: to find that autumnal wonder in my summertime world. I hope you will still join us.
This course is about enchantment and magic, and I intend for it to be an inspiration wherever you are in the world.
Enchanted October is for you if:
You want to add just a little bit of magic to your days.
You want to explore all of the wonders that October has to offer.
You are intrigued by moon cycles and broomsticks and different aspects of women’s spirituality, and you’d like to learn just a little bit more.
You’d like to spend the whole month nourishing and delighting yourself.
You’ll enjoy knowing more about traditions and practices that we often take for granted.
You want to bring some light to the darkening autumn days.
“Meghan’s Enchanted October course added so much sparkle and delight to my month. The amount of content and things to dive in to and explore was deep and delicious and will be a resource for me going forward. Meg really empowers you to find your own magic in the everyday. She is a wonder full champion of the power of intention and the access we all have to magic in every single moment of our lives.” ~ Sarah
“A wonderfully enchanting October, thank you so much Meghan, it was a little bit of magic in my inbox every morning and encouraged me to find more magic in my everyday. I thought the tone and content was just right, accessible for everyone without being too heavy on the mystical/witchy stuff – although I love that so more would have been fine with me! I hope you’ll do more courses like this in future, I’ll definitely be signing up.” ~ Member, Enchanted October 2016
Who am I?
I am a writer, a seeker, a finder of magic, and the author of the inspirational novel: Unfurl. At the beginning of 2015 my husband and I took a huge leap of faith and followed our hearts to a new life in southern Costa Rica.
I believe in words as spells, that beauty is transformative, and that we are all tiny pieces of the Divine having a human experience.
I also have an unshakable and deep love of Magic.
Find out more about me here.
And why October? You mean besides the fact that it’s my birthday month and that it is the month of pumpkin spiced everything? You mean besides the magic and the colour and the excuse to wrap up in blankets as you sit around a fire?
“I loved having a inspiring email everyday, the thoughts and suggestions to be enchanting not just for the month but to work into our life and the way Meghan makes you feel like you are having a cup of tea with a good friend.” ~ Member, Enchanted October, 2016
What it is like working with me ~
Working with Meghan Genge is, in a word, *MAGIC*. It’s no coincidence that she’s claimed that word as her own. Meghan has a way of seeing into your soul, unraveling the darkest parts of you, and reconnecting you with your truest Self. She does this by asking questions:challenging, playful, mysterious, wonder-full…and sometimes obvious…questions. The ones that you haven’t thought of, or the ones you haven’t been brave enough to face. She does so with kindness, love, and compassion. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Meghan in person and via email/Skype, and she never fails to help create powerful shifts in my life and perspective. She is a bringer of magic, inviting you to play and unravel your life, love, and dreams. I will always invest in her e-offerings and retreats because I know that working with Meghan will change my life in an extraordinary way. ~ Becki Macary
To me an excellent teacher is someone that kindly imparts their wisdom and holds a sweet space for you to absorb it. Meghan is just that kind of person. She is caring and wise and she leads from those places. She’s also a great writer, whose words come from a thoughtful and deep place. I love to read what she writes because I always feel like I walk away with a little “aha” moment. I can not wait to see what Meghan puts out into the world next, because there is doubt it’s going to be magical. ~ Laurie Jacobsen
