Peer-Led Workshop: Sympathetic Magic

  • Sep 19, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Please join us at our monthly Third-Thursday meetup as we discuss the why's and how's of Sympathetic Magic.

Sympathetic magic is based on imitation and/or correspondence.  This can include effigies, fetishes or poppets to affect the environment of people, or occasionally people themselves.  Correspondence is based on the idea that one can influence something based on its relationship or resemblance to another thing. Many popular beliefs regarding properties of plants, fruits and vegetables have evolved in the folk-medicine of different societies owing to sympathetic magic. This include beliefs that certain herbs with yellow sap can cure jaundice, that walnuts could strengthen the brain because of the nuts' resemblance to brain, that red beet-juice is good for the blood etc.

Please remember we value your company more than anything else, so please don't worry if you don't feel like sharing, we would like to spend the evening with you regardless!

We are a donation based group so any contribution is appreciated.  Supplies, space, and website fees must be paid for, and your generous contributions help us grow and offer even better events in the future!

Well tended children are welcome at the meet up but please bring something to interest them.

Please Note: To protect our Host's privacy the exact address will be emailed out the week of the meet-up to those who RSVP yes.

    So, I've been working late all this week and unfortunately tonight is more of the same. If I can get done by 8, I'll swing by to say hi. Otherwise, I'll just miss everyone and hope to see everyone at the BatCave on the 1st!
