Slot 1A
Alex will be presenting:

Presenting on: Precogs and Gears -- The Application Precognition in Psionics

If you could foresee that you would be late, would you still be? If you can see the future, doesn't that means it already exists now? Is time a construct of the mind, or a traversable medium? Alex Kowit has been teaching Psionics for 14 years, and practicing for 25. In this presentation, Alex will explain the how's, what's, why's, and most (least? both?) importantly when's of the phenomena of viewing forward in time, what it implies, how this can take place, and best of all, how to start learning it as a skill.

Slot 1B
Panel 1 : Panel Discussion on Ethics: Magicians of various schools come together to discuss whether there are ethical limits in the occult and why.
Slot 2A
Sensei Victoria Whitfied will be presenting:

Presenting on: Shadow Work: Engaging the Dark Side for Healing

This interactive lecture was inspired by the song \“46 & 2\” by TOOL (view at http://bit.ly/1nLjamE). According to Carl Jung, the Shadow Self is that part of you that you hide inside yourself, from yourself. The Shadow holds our unconscious habits and limiting beliefs, yet it also holds unlimited creativity, knowledge and power. When you embrace your shadow, you take your power back from people, places and experiences that control it, and you also activate new levels of power heretofore latent within your energetic body. Also, embracing your shadow can help in healing from deep emotional wounds, such as bullying, divorce and breakups, sexual abuse, crippling self-doubt, grief and depression. In this lecture, you will learn the anatomy of the shadow, how to activate it’s power with channeling, and you will be taken through a live shadow work healing meditation ceremony, where you will embrace what is waiting for you in the dark in a safe, non-judgemental and high vibrational space. Ceremony will include an invocation of god Anubis and archangel Azrael. All levels of skill and magickal styles welcome! Blessed be, and harm none; we are all One Tribe!

Slot 2B
Panel 2 : Panel Discussion on the Evolution of Consciousness in modern times: Various magicians come together to discuss Occult practice in modern times. What are the fundamentals of this lifestyle out of the main stream? Why has it become more acceptable in our times?
Slot 3A
Ernest McCloskey will be presenting:

Energetics

Slot 3B
Chris KennEy will be presenting:

Presenting on Fairy Magic: What I know and don't know

Lecture will include Knowledge of Fairies and their realm. It will also include the creation of fairy strings. More information to come.

Slot 4A
Inominandum will be presenting:

PROCCULTISM – Strange Tales and Unsolicited Advice for Professional Magi.

In recent years the western magical tradition has seen an increase in the number of Sorcerer’s, Witches, and Magicians offering their services for hire. Though common in traditions throughout Asia, Africa, and the Diaspora, the idea of a magician making a living as a magician is relatively rare in the western magical traditions. Though divination for hire has been common for a long time, offering ritual work and teaching for a fee has been relatively taboo until now. Even now some balk at the idea as a corrupting influence in the WMT.

In this class Jason Miller, a Professional Sorcerer, Teacher, and Author opens up about the business side of things. He will offer advice to experienced and budding Proccultists, talk about the impact of Proccultism on the Western Magical Tradition, dispel some of the myths and objections to the practice, and share some strange tales from a career in magic.

Slot 4B
Jason M. Colwell will be presenting:

Jason will be presenting on: Blending Occult work with Paranormal Investigation

It is all in your head, until it isn't. Jason M. Colwell discusses using technology during Occult practice and occult techniques during investigations.

Slot 5A
Arthur D. Moyer will be presenting:

Omnimancy: The Anatomy of a Spell.

Over the years I have demonstrated different ideas from Omnimancy to readapt back to your own spell working. This time, this is going to be mixed lecture and workshop. This will include basic energy working, to more advanced topics such as how spells operate and can be modified (and how to take advantage of that), to Astral Forensics.

Slot 5B
Maggi Horseman will be presenting:

Presenting a lecture on: Walking the 27th Path of the Tree of Life: The Balance of Order and Ecstasy

(Intermediate class, must have a basic understanding of Qabala)

 

            The 27th path of the tree of life of the magickal system of qabala joins the spheres Hod (Order) with Netzach (Ecstasy) The mastery of the 27th path can be the synthesis of the structure, discipline, and study of the Magician and the Orphic ecstasy and intuition of the Witch. After over a year of meditation on the juncture between the 25th and 27th path of the Qabala, Maggi found herself walking these paths, literally, in her 2nd degree initiation ritual.  In this workshop the relationship of Hod and Netzach will be discussed including the meaning of the sphere, their relationship to the Tree of Life, and the path that joins them.

 
Slot 6A
Rufus Opus will be presenting:

Presenting on the Seven Spheres.

Seven Spheres is RO's first published book. It provides a fairly straightforward set of practices that transform the individual through the conjuration, integration, and projection of the forces of the Seven Planetary Spheres. It is a practice manual for Hermetic Planetary Magic. At the end of the rites, you will have released a specific current into your life that transforms you into the King of your world. It gets you out of bad relationships and into good ones. It gets you out of bad jobs and into good ones. It gets you out of bad lives and on the path toward creating something better for yourself, using the powers and skills that are yours by birthright because you are an amazing magician... even if you've momentarily forgotten.

Slot 6B
Lainie Petersen will be presenting:

Divinatory Relationships:

In this talk, I’ll be exploring the diviner/client relationship. I’ll examine divinatory ethics, financial issues, client empowerment, and learning how to give bad news appropriately. I’ll also offer suggestions on how clients can get the most out of their readings by asking the right questions, being honest with their readers and learning how to make the best use of an oracle’s advice.

PRESENTORS


Inominandum

Jason Miller, Inominandum, is a full-time Author, Sorcerer, and Teacher. From an early age he studied both High Ceremonial Magic and folk magic techniques of Rootwork and Witchcraft finding that together, each approach strengthened the other and made for a Sorcery that could be streamlined and startlingly effective. Desiring to go deepern he did what all his childhood mystical superheroes like Dr Strange, Mandrake, The Shadow, and Dr Doom did: moved to the Himalayas.

It was in Nepal that Jason received the training he would need to do Sorcery the way that he always knew it could be done. When he came back to the west he began to seek the hidden skills in non-magical disciplines like finance and love, and mingle them with magic. This was the birth of Strategic Sorcery.

He is the author of several books including " Financial Sorcery: Magical Strategies to Create Real and Lasting Wealth " and the forthcoming " Sex, Sorcery, and Spirit: Secrets of Erotic Magic " as well as the acclaimed Strategic Sorcery Course.

Actively researching and practicing diverse traditions of meditation, crystal healing and divination since 2004, in 2011 Victoria began her professional commitment to sharing healing energy part time, and then by 2014 built a full-time practice that continues to grow to this day, especially now that she speaks once a month on the healing power of meditation for corporations, such as AT&T and the Phillips 66 Bayway Refinery.
