What we're about

'Lore' is from the Old English word 'lar' meaning "learning, what is taught, knowledge, science, doctrine; art or act of teaching," and 'occult' means "hidden, concealed, secret". LORE hosts free-to-attend public discussions, workshops, and field trips on a range of topics that fall into the original meaning of 'occult', defined as "not apprehended by the mind, beyond the range of understanding." Together we share stories, books, myths, occult research, and the company of friends.

"The believer is happy, the doubter wise."
— Greek proverb

League of Occult Research & Education - Monthly Meetup

This month's meetup will be on Zoom, RSVP for link, event is free and open to the public.

7:00pm Occultist, hermeticist, seeker and eternal student of the universe, the founder of "Arcane Awareness: Magick, Mysticism & the Middle Hand Path", tarot reader and practicing ceremonial magician, Madi wishes to share her meanderings through Ceremonial Magic, the Western Mystery Traditions, Alchemy, Theurgy, Astrology, the journey of the Seeker and what the ‘Middle Hand Path’ represents to her..

“There came a point in my journey where I couldn’t deny that there was something more going on - and I needed to find the answers out for myself. It wasn’t enough to have other people tell me what they had experienced. I endeavoured to pursue personal gnosis of the Divine. I remember a voice asking me, 'Are you sure?' when I had initially requested to ‘Know’."

"This question became the focal point of my incarnation, my curiosity pushing me to investigate the Mysteries, and eventually leading me directly into psychedelic breakthroughs and ceremonial magic - the Middle Hand Path ever-unfolding before my very being.”

9:00pm Q&A plus northwest occult related announcements.

Note: Dirty Daves is a family friendly bar and pizza parlor in Olympia, which we plan to return to meeting at once reopening reaches the final phase for Washington, which could be as soon as this summer. We're doing field research trips and will be planning outings this spring, more info will be shared during the meetup.
