Introduction to Druidry
Wednesdays at 7 pm, September 9th – 23rd

Join Jack for a 3-part discussion of modern Druidry—what it is, where it comes from, and what the major groups are. We’ll discuss druidic philosophy, the Druidic Orders, the Bardic magic of inspiration and of story, and the art of cultivating wisdom.

Along the way we’ll touch on the Arthurian tales, the old gods of Britain and Ireland, The Mabon and how to pronounce it, a soup that makes poets, an infamous forger of Welsh poetry, Gerald Gardner’s copy editor, and of course, Stonehenge.

Buckle in, folks, there’s a lot of weird to cover.

An Introduction to Voudoun

Voudoun is the religion of ancient African Diaspora rites of the Western African/Caribbean regions. It is the principle religion of Benin, Dahomey, Haiti, and Togo. Voudoun is thought to originate before the start of the Christian calendar and the only other African Diaspora religion that claims to be older is IFA.

This class will cover the four different Voudoun traditions, the houses, zombies/voodoo dolls, the chain of command in Haitian Voudoun, Loas/Lwas vs Orisha, the most popular Loas/Lwas and much more!
