Khi Armand

Reimagining Tradition | Khi Armand | Leigh Davis | Erin Ellen Kelly | James Leonard | Jasmine Murrell | ULTRACULTURAL OTHERS

Khi Armand is a shamanic healer and traditional hoodoo rootworker with a background in performance art. With As Above, So Below: Reconnecting NYC’s Neighborhoods, Armand offers participants an opportunity to experience a pastiche of cross-traditional magicks and soul expanding activities. His work addresses pressing issues of social justice by voicing collective and individual spiritual needs within communities. The public will be invited to join Armand at 7 different ritual circles hosted in neighborhood parks throughout the five boroughs, where he will guide participants through a structure of meditation, group affirmations, as well as clearing and energizing spellcraft. The title of his piece comes from the Hermetic maxim embraced by many neo-pagan practitioners, As above, so below, and refers to the belief that our internal realities reflect the external world.

Armand is the author of Deliverance!: Hoodoo Spells of Uncrossing, Healing, and Protection and Clearing Spaces: Inspirational Techniques to Heal Your Home. He has presented at numerous festivals and organizations, including Brooklyn Brainery, the Morbid Anatomy Museum, and Das Unbehagen & the Institute of Comparative Magico-anthropology in London. Podcast appearances include Conjure in the City and Rune Soup. Armand holds a Masters in Performance Studies from New York University and a Bachelors in Ritual Anthropology from Hampshire College.
