Friday, May 10, 2019

Born out of real need among the disempowered of their societies, the folk magic tradition is rich with tricks and techniques for keeping oneself, family, and home safe while settling the score against mighty and powerful adversaries. This course will introduce you to workings for the protection of your person, space, and spirit, and teach you how to work with:
Talismans and Protective Amulets
Keeping a guardian spirit and more
Instructor-Brother Moses is a cultural anthropologist, folklorist, spiritual minister and professional reader and conjure worker based in Colorado.
He has been steeped in his family’s old world folk magic traditions since childhood, and has spent decades studying the religion, spirituality, and magical practices of humans across time and civilizations while staying grounded in contemporary urban spiritual practice.
Working primarily in folk magical traditions–which he terms “the magic of pragmatism”– Brother Moses approaches spiritual work from first principles and core metaphysics, examining magical techniques and technologies to distill essential frameworks and parameters for their operation. By comparing methods, paradigms, and approaches across cultures, he discovers often surprising unities and similarities in magical understanding and application across the world and the ages.
Concerned with plants and bones, spirits and folk saints, Psalms and prayers, lamps and candles, amulets and talismans, oils and incense, dolls, jars, bags, dirt, and the other magical tools of everyday life, his conjure is a concentrated blend of the proven traditions and practices of the ancestors who depended on them, and the spiritual and material sciences they observed and derived.
