We will follow the evolution of Wicca from the postwar "stepchild" of the British ceremonial magick groups into several identifiable Craft traditions; its migration to the United States and its incorporation into various social movements; its explosion as a publishing industry sub-culture in the 80s and then its expansion & popularity on the internet. As an Alexandrian 2nd Degree Wiccan High Priest, Eric played a critical part in the founding of the Long Island Beltane Festival and the New York City Pagan Pride Day.

Saturday, Jan. 5, 2:00 p.m. – Planetary Magick – Erick Friedman
Planetary Magic is one of the most ancient traditions in magick, going back at least to ancient Babylon, possibly further. Each planet is, essentially, a God/dess; they are channels for the primary magical archetypes common across most, if not all, pantheons. Most forms of Magick have used the 7 Planets as the primary celestial forces to be invoked &/or directed in magical work. This class shows how simple the traditional planetary forces are to work with, without all the formalities of ceremonial traditions. It also provides a guide for identifying how these archetypes appear across diverse pantheons, so that one can make a personal connection between their own deities and one or more of these planetary archetypes.

Saturday, March 9, 2:00 p.m. – Tarot Magick & Meditation – Eric Friedman
The Tarot is SO MUCH MORE than a divination tool. It is a collection of primal archetypal images that have been successfully adapted to pretty much every spiritual tradition. They are a supremely versatile astrological chart. They are a magical alphabet, from which Words of Power can be formed. They have served for almost 200 years as profoundly effective illustrations of the basic structures & formulae of the Qabalah. Since they are all these things, it should be no surprise that they can be used for very powerful magical work. This class explores the astrological & Qabalistic mechanics of the Tarot, and shows how they can be used for Magick and the focus of productive meditation.

Saturday, May 18, 2:00 p.m. – Chaos Magick – Eric Friedman
Chaos Magick is an experiential method of using just those bits of magical practice that empower you and get results that you like. It is a highly creative & intuitive anti-tradition, a sort of "make-it-up-as-you-go" magical process, consisting primarily of mixing techniques, dropping some and keeping only "this works for me, so I'll keep using it." Eric cautions that in order for Chaos Magick to be effective, one needs to know what you're discarding and why you're setting it aside. Eric guides us through the beginning steps of developing a Chaos magical practice.
