Paleosorcery- The Magic of The Prehistoric Age
Wednesday, May 22, 2019
6:00pm – 8:00pm
Before civilization and the written word, our ancestors met the forces of nature as equals, developing across the world a repetoire of myths, spells, charms and rituals to ensure safety, abundance, personal empowerment, and spiritual elevation after death. Drawing from this deep and ancient well of our human lineage, we can adapt principles and techniques to work magic at the core levels of our human psyche. In this class you will learn:
The fundamental mysteries – working with sun and moon
The mysterious passage – the life cycle and personal evolution
Fertility and abundance – the construction and use of charms
The great hunt – honoring and working with animal masters
Instuctor-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.
