|Panel 1: Pop Magic. Good Thing or Bad Thing?|
|Rich is presenting a lecture on "Wyrd Things: A look at Viking Mysticism"|
Kenaz is doing a lecture called "Vodou Money Magic"
We are living in the material world, and Vodou is a material religion. Vodouisants generally don't go to their gods for peace, tranquility or other intangibles: they ask the lwa for help with bills, job promotions and other real-time, real-world advantages. This workshop discusses our views on money and wealth, and gives some ways in which you can call on the lwa for aid.
Jow will be doing a lecture entitled:
Alchemy: The Art of Life.
Most people think that Alchemy is all about transmuting lead into gold. Such a useful physical transmutation is in fact thought of by most practicing Alchemists as just a parlor trick. The real path and goal of Alchemy is the manipulation of life through the influence of its three essentials: Consciousness, Energy, and Matter. We will be discussing the three essentials in depth, along with Inner and Outer Alchemical processes designed to give health, and longevity, along with a discussion on the ramifications and theories behind immortality.

Cliff is doing "Ancient Stellar Magic"
Magic has existed since before recorded history, but the term itself is borrowed from the heretical Magians of Zoroastrian Persia-- currently believed to have been a cult of time-worshippers. Their magical practices, which became famed throughout the ancient world, frequently attempted to circumvent fate and bestow supernatural abilities by applying early astrology to the fabrication of talismans and rings of power. One rare and ancient grimoire reveals the secrets on how to create fifteen rings of immense power, imbued with the essences of corresponding fixed stars and star clusters, and their associated hierarchies of mighty spirits. This lecture will introduce you to the basics of traditional astrology, and how to use it to make these rings of power for yourself.
Arthur is doing a lecture entitled "Through the Magical Wormhole"
With all the recent science programs on how there are multiple universes and dimensional directions, I figured it would be time to have the Omnimancy perspective on this. Some of which overlaps common magical thinking and some doesn't but has been found useful within Omnimancy. So the lecture will be a mix of the tip of the iceberg of what we term "dimensional physics" and exploring what is really going behind the scenes with some very common magical practices. So it should be interesting for veterans and novices alike.
Andrei is doing "What's in a Name?: The Magikal Power of the Public and Private Label".
Our name identifies us. It gives our heritage. It is the tool that children use to make fun of us. Many choose a magickal name. Some do this to reflect their inner soul more accurately, some do it to set up a mask from the pubilc. Some no longer care what the name's value is. But the name is the earliest mechanism humans have used to define different things. In this hour we will look at the history of the name, the power of the title, and the strength a name has in our magickal work.
Jason is doing a lecture entitled "THE 9 PRINCIPALS OF STRATEGIC SORCERY"
Last Halloween I launched the Strategic Sorcery Training Course, A Year Long Boot Camp In Practical Magic. In these lessons I lay out all the specific methods that I have found to be most effective and useful over the years and eave them into a complete system of magic. What is even more important than the methods though are the principles. While the methods of Strategic Sorcery are many, there are nine core principles that can be employed by just about anyone from any system of magic or Witchcraft. I have students from Pagan, Buddhist, Christian, Hermetic, Shammanic, and other backgrounds who have applied these principals to their work, and were amazed at the marked improvements.
In this class I will go over each of the nine principals and give real life examples of how they are applied. This class will be highly interactive and I will make sure to provide concrete advice that is applicable to whatever path you happen to walk, Whether you have an interest in my other works or not, if you put a few of these principles to work, you will see better results from your magic, and real improvements in your life.
Simon is doing a lecture entitled "The Magic of Angelic War" and will be a complete introduction to the martial, rhetorical, and spiritual practices of the Malakim Society.
Magical Screw ups and "OH S$%T!" moments
Any experienced magician knows that things don't always go the way we planned. Sometimes the unplanned results are truly surprising, both good and bad. I've found that one can learn from other people's mistakes as well as your own. So join us for a panel of embarrassing anecdotes that should be enlightening and fun in the end.
Pop Magic. Good Thing or Bad Thing?
With the mainstreaming of magic into the popular culture with things like Harry Potter, Ghost Hunters and Ghost Whisperer, there has been a flood of new ideas in the magical community. Many of the ideas aren't well researched and proven out, but are accepted by some anyway. Let us explore how this influx has affected the magical community and has it helped magicians to be more accepted or is the price not worth it?
