FRIDAY, May 17, 6:00 p.m. – Angel Magick - Eric Friedman
Angels are everywhere. They are the thoughts of God. They are both the machinery and the bureaucracy of the Universe. In this class, Eric will provide an overview of the classical literature of the Angels, and an introduction to their Magick, particularly as it relates to Astrology & Qabalah. Eric brings all of his experience with Wicca, Qabalah, and Hermetic Magick together into a single system of Angelic Invocation, unconstrained by any requirements concerning equipment & a fixed temple space. Eric has adapted Wiccan ritual back closer to its Ceremonial roots, and has developed a system of Angelic Magick more suited to the "Nomadic" way of life and a more intimate relationship with the Spirits.

FRIDAY July 5, 6:00 p.m. – Rune Magick - Eric Friedman
A deeper look at the Runes! More than merely a means of telling fortunes, the Runes are the secret shamanic alphabet of the ancient god and wizard, Odin.
