The supernatural world has always fascinated to me, and my experiences with mysticism find their expression through my art, writing, formulas, and spiritual services.

As an artist (working under the brand name Carnivalia), the focus of my work has been the development of divination tools, notably spirit-boards, and unique oracular systems.

My writing appears in various publications, most notably my book The Secret Keys of Conjure, by Llewellyn Worldwide. Magic and spirituality are my preferred themes.

I craft spiritual supplies such as oils, baths, teas, candles, perfumes, and more, mostly with the brand name Modern Conjure.

A Course In Modern Conjureis the name of my online class on the subject of North American folk magic, which can be found at Mystic Dream Academy. Also available at that site is a class and community developed by myself and my partners Storm Faerywolf and Devin Hunter, known as Blackrose Witchcraft.

I am one of the owners of The Mystic Dream, a metaphysical candle shop in the heart of the San Francisco Bay Area, located for the last 27 years at 1437 N Broadway, Walnut Creek, California 94596. Many of my links will direct you to the website for my store. It is at this location that I meet clients for energy therapy, spiritual cleansings, or any of my other hands-on services.


I have known Chas Bogan for over 8 years. I have had energy work done by him, and an egg cleansing. He is professional and very powerful. I could feel the energy move within my body right away. It left me feeling peaceful , balanced and centered. He has also advised me in matters of Rootwork for myself. I have had only positive results following his advice. He has been my teacher, and now is a colleague and friend . His oils and entire line of Conjure formulas are fantastic and has been life changing for me and many others. I respect him, his integrity is the highest, and his MAGIC is very potent. I highly recommend him. –C. Rossi

Chas was the first person I learned Rootwork and Conjure from. I took a great class from him about Mojo bags, and we had a lot of fun! Sometimes I get private Reiki Sessions with him to treat myself! I love his blessing waters, oils, powders, incenses, and bath crystals so much that once I ordered a custom cleansing powder from him and it works perfectly! Chas is brilliant at advice and magical strategy. I always enjoy talking with him, and I’m grateful to know him. –L. Niceley

Chas summed up my problem in no time, and gave me good instructions on how to fix it. I’m doing magic for myself now and things are better. –B. Quan

Chas Bogan’s enthusiasm and love for conjure is expressed in his artwork and teaching. I know Chas as a student of Black Rose Witchcraft and Modern Conjure. Chas’s teachings are practical and down to earth as Conjure should be. His conjure oil and candle products at the Mystic Dream store are of a very high quality and they work! I have no hesitation in recommending his classes, products and services. He’s a friendly and approachable person who takes his calling to conjure seriously. –D. Raincloud

Thank you Chas for your insight on my candle. That clarifies a lot!!! I will start with the uncrossing bath on Sunday. It smells sooo good. You’re an angel. –E. Anderson

I have gone to other spirit workers who strung me along. I think Chas Bogan is more honest and has many gifts. I will be going to him again. –S.Polk
