Immanion Press Authors Kiya Nicoll, Frater Barrabbas, and Brandy Williams will be at Paganicon. Brandy Williams is a guest of honor at this year’s Paganicon, and all the authors are presenting workshops at Paganicon. The current schedule for Paganicon can be found here.
Kiya Nicoll will be presenting the following workshops:
Living the Customs of Our Religions: Paganism in Households
A lot of the big book explosion of the nineties was aimed at or adopted by teenagers … and those kids, we’re now mostly in our thirties. Rather than figuring out how to practice under our parents’ roof, we’re more likely to be concerned about maintaining a household of our own. Religion has to coexist with spouses, children, work, and getting dinner on the table at a reasonable hour. How can we make pagan religion something that can live in our homes and coexist – or even be shared with – our families?
Digging Up The Mysteries: Building New Rituals from Ancient Roots
The experiential parts of ancient religions are not easily found in the archaeological record, and a lot of ancient Mystery cults didn’t have a lot of people talking about them. Still, people look to find ways of engaging with the gods on these levels, seeking experiential ritual and mystical practice. What can we find in the records we have that can guide us towards building something new that partakes of ancient roots and resonances, and how can we put it together into something that works for us in the modern day?
Frater Barrabbas will be presenting a workshop on Practical Quabalah in Brief
This is a brief overview of the Qabalah and the practical Qabalah. I will succinctly define the Qabalah in terms of what it is and how it can be used in a practical manner. We will define the Qabalah in terms of its five parts and also define what constitutes a practical Qabalistic practice.
Brandy Williams will be presenting the following workshops:
Living with the gods – lessons from the ancients in modern
practice. Hellenic Neoplatonists called the gods into statues, into each
other, and into themselves. Modern theurgists adapt their use of sound and
invocation to bring the gods into our lives today.
The Woman Magician
Always the muse, never the magician – until now! Western metaphysics assumes magicians are men, with men’s bodies and men’s language. Reshaping the tradition to include women’s language begins the process of opening Western Traditional Magic to peoples of all shapes and cultures.
Devotional to Seshat
This devotional invokes the presence of the Egyptian Goddess of Writing and Magic. Visit the Altar of Seshat, listen to her stories, and share your own stories and experiences.
