Hands-on Heka: Ancient Egyptian Magic

March 18, 2017 at World Tree Healing in Chicago.

tracking.php?code=wnS2P6aRnfPA7e2qRE0ou0

For centuries, much of the world agreed with Clement of Alexandria (3rd c. CE), who referred to ancient Egypt as “the mother of magicians.” In this workshop, Rev. Anna Applegate, a legally ordained Priestess in the international Fellowship of Isis, will give an overview of magic, or heka, in ancient Egypt, focusing on the three main divisions of funerary magic, ritual magic (performed in temples), and everyday magic. Participants will get to experience hands-on heka by creating papyri talismans to keep.

$35 per person at the door; $30 per person if you reserve a place in advance. Tickets are available for purchase online (https://squareup.com/store/worldtreehealing) or by phone (773-273-9718).

Rev. Anna Applegate, M.A., is proud to be a native Chicagoan, imprinted from childhood’s earliest hours by the numerous spirits of land, river, lake, and concrete and steel in this magical crossroads of a world-class city. She has been active in Chicago’s Pagan community for 17 years. Legally ordained as a Priestess in the worldwide Fellowship of Isis, Anna is the Founder of the Iseum of the Rekhet Akhu, whose mission is to highlight the interrelatedness of the communities of the living and the dead and to cultivate transfigured spirits (akhu) in human form. Additionally, Anna is a certified Death Midwife, helping the dying birth themselves into the Spirit World, as well as an initiate in the West African Yoruba religion of Ifá, which centers on worship of the Orisha and the cultivation of one’s Orí (Destiny) in this lifetime.

A Master Mason since 2010 in the Eastern Order of International Co-Freemasonry (EOIC), Anna has a fondness for initiatory traditions of a high ceremonial and esoteric caliber. Her Mother Lodge is where she met her now-fiancé and Other Half in the truest sense of the term, D.E. Numen. Together, they maintain a website devoted to the chthonic Powers Hekate and Hermes as well as the subjects of witchcraft, ceremonial magic, alchemy, and lessons from liminality: visit Hermekate.com. Anna also avidly blogs about her Polytheistic Priestess adventures at Amor et Mortem (“Love and Death”).

A writer by trade and for pleasure, Anna holds an M.A. degree in English Literature from Loyola University Chicago. Her Pagan poetry appears in the Scarlet Imprint anthologies Datura (2010) and Mandragora (2012). She also serves as the Executive Editor of Isis-Seshat, a quarterly journal for the Fellowship of Isis. Anna resides on Chicago’s northwest side with her fiancé, three feline familiars (Beowulf, Grendel, and one-eyed Hela), and a baby corn snake named Brimo.

“If we didn’t have birthdays,
you wouldn’t be you.
If you’d never been born,
well then what would you do?
If you’d never been born,
well then what would you be?
You might be a fish!
Or a toad in a tree!
You might be a doorknob!
Or three baked potatoes!
You might be a bag full of
hard green tomatoes.

Or worse than all that…
Why, you might be a WASN’T!
A Wasn’t has no fun at all.
No, he doesn’t.”

Lore Study Group

March 28, 2017 at World Tree Healing in Chicago.

tracking.php?code=OCbRew6ko2c9b3l6Td9beR

This is the first Lore Study meeting. We will go over our framework for approaching the lore and how the rest of these classes will be structured. After this first one, Lore Study will repeat indefinitely on the fourth Tuesday of every month. We will spend about 6 months on each region. We’re starting with Northern European lore b/c Eric can teach that while half asleep. After the April, 2018 class, we will discuss how the Lore Study group will evolve from there. Here’s the current syllabus, which is always subject to change:

March and April: How we will approach the Lore.
May through October: Germanic and Norse Lore
November 2017 through April 2018: Anglo-Saxon and Celtic Lore

The cost for this class is $20 per person, whether you purchase in advance or at the door. If you want to buy the study packets that Eric will put together for these classes, they will be $20 each. There will be one initial packet containing excerpts from books and essays we will us to frame our understanding of the lore; after that, each new section will have a packet, a book list, or both.
