November 20, 2:00 p.m. - The Magick of the Bible - Eric Friedman
Many generations of “witches” and healers from around the world have found the Bible to be a powerful resource for health & well-being, mysticism & and magick. Different words and verses have been found, by Christian & Jew alike, to have power to accomplish certain ends, particularly with regards to protection and angels. Some verses are recited, some inscribed, some broken up, or subject to a multitude of letter manipulations before use. There are prayers to saints and intercessory spirits to help, heal, or even harm oneself or others. Additionally, the Bible actually describes certain pagan practices of the ancient world which, while written in antagonism, still provides us with useful hints. Eric will take us from Hebrew amulets to the Hoodoo altar, showing how the Bible has been the means to magical ends for millennia.

March 12, 2:00 p.m. - Paganism, the Tao, & the Tree of Life - Eric Friedman
The ancient wisdom traditions of Taoism & Kabbalah have a surprising kinship with each other, dealing with some of the most subtle & abstract philosophical concepts. Separately or together, these traditions also shed light on Pagan & Wiccan practices, particularly the process & goals of Initiation. They also help reveal some of the many mysteries of the Goddess (e.g., Kwan Yin, Sophia, or the Shekhinah).
