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

Online event

This month's meetup is free and open to the public and will be on Zoom. Note we're meeting on the second Monday of this month July 12th (because the 5th is the observed 4th of July holiday and some of us will be out of town).

Workshop: Panel Discussion on Synchronicity and the Occult.

7:00pm Introductions: We do a group go around with attendees, with brief intros and sharing your occult interests, there is no requirement to participate in introductions, networking among each other and questions to the presenter is welcomed in chat during workshop presentations.

7:30pm Workshop: We've invited some past LORE presenters to be on a panel discussion on synchronicity and the occult. Each presenter will give a 5 to 10 minute overview of their experiences with synchronicity, such as synchronicity and divination like with the tarot and the I Ching. The rest of the time will be Q&A with folks to ask the panelists their questions and continue the discussion with the whole meetup group.

9:00pm Occult news, announcements, and post-workshop discussion.

NOTE: Dirty Daves is a family friendly bar and pizza parlor, and we plan to return there once Washington moves into the final reopening phase, which may happen this summer. We will continue to host gatherings and talks with the ability to attend virtually on zoom as well.
