• League of Occult Research & Education - Monthly Meetup

    This month's meetup will be completely virtual on Zoom - Dirty Dave's Pizza called over the weekend to inform us that they have shut down for two weeks because of a Covid outbreak there, and thus its not enough time for us to find another free public backup location with private room and wifi etc, so please join us all on the zoom link below at 7pm on Monday 11/2. (Note that if you would like to meet up in person to continue these discussions on this topic we have a study group which you're welcome to join, which we organize via phone and/or email and is not public). Schedule 7:00pm Workshop: Archetypal Pattern Recognition - Psychologist Carl Jung’s investigations into the collective unconscious, archetypes and synchronicity in his masterwork Aion explained everything from precognitive dreams and astrology to electronic voice phenomena (EVP). Jung believed that collective synchronicity happens when an archetype is emerging into group consciousness. It’s like the group, movement, subculture or society becomes aware of the footprints of a larger pattern that they’re participating with both internally and externally. “When an inner situation is not made conscious, it happens outside, as fate..” - Carl Jung, Aion We’ll be reporting back on some field research where we entered and explored some area labyrinths and mazes using EVP, 4K video, and thermal imaging when we encountered ‘something’ (archetypal pattern? ideal object? group synchronicity? ghost? otherworldly entities? apophenia? something else?) Message from Dirty Daves Pizza: "To all of the friends and family of Dirty Dave's, we had a part-time staff member test positive for COVID-19. We have been in contact with the Washington State Department of Health and although it is not required of us, we have decided to be as safe as possible for our staff and customers and will be closed for 2 weeks time. We look forward to serving you again on November 9! If you have questions, please contact the Department of Health. Thank you!"

  • Labyrinth and Maze Outdoor Exploration

    2 Margaritas Restaurant

    Join us on this rare sunny Saturday afternoon to explore some area mazes and labyrinths. We will be meeting outside on the waterfront patio at 2 Margaritas next to the marina in the small town of Union, known for its picturesque vistas of the Olympic mountains across the fjord of the Hood Canal. We will meet up between 11am-Noon on the Mexican restaurant's patio and then when everyone has arrived head over to the labyrinths at Harmony Hill and then the corn mazes at Hunter Farms, both nearby in Union. Afterwards folks can depart or join some us around the fire pit. This is a free event, there is no entrance fee etc at either the labyrinths or the mazes, but you can purchase food and hot drinks at all the locations, and pumpkins etc at Hunter Farms. If you don't want to walk to the maze there is small fee to take the hay ride there. We will be following social distance rules and wearing masks, and the entire event will be outdoors. LORE has not done any outdoor events in 2020 in support of state safety guidelines and so feel this may be the only outdoor event LORE does this year before non-family gathering lockdown restrictions return. A handful of us have been meeting as part of a LORE study group with themes that include mazes and labyrinths and wanted to invite others to join us on this field trip. Folks if interested can learn more about the LORE study group and are welcome to join us in the future.

It's the 10th Anniversary of the film Inception, starring Leonardo DiCaprio as a professional thief who steals information by infiltrating the subconscious of his targets.. Inception is still working its way through our imagination, something that feels even more important than it did when the film came out. Part of its brilliance is how much we’re all still kind of staring at that spinning top, waiting for it to fall.." We will discuss the occult concepts of dream sharing and lucid dreaming, from jungian and other perspectives, and explore the role of our subconscious in constructing our sense of reality. 9:00pm Occult northwest news announcements & discussion Note: This meeting will be on Zoom, RSVP to get the link.
