Their penchant for combining fierce and gutsy bravado with ethereal beauty, a hearty dose of fantastical lyrics, and an obvious love of storytelling has inspired their own style, “Neofolk Romantique”. This often sounds less Celtic and more “Folktales that ran away with the Faeries at the turn of the century and took cover in an old trunk bound for the circus, which was then commandeered by pirates.” This suits them fine.

Monday 9:00 AM Carmel Fear as a Source of Magic Fear is powerful. Overwhelming, compelling, even translating into it’s own identity. “Fear as a source of magic” will be looking at how we “do” fear, what is it, where does it come from? Magic is often said to be empowered by drawing up strong emotions and focusing them into the working – in this workshop we will explore a different way of working with fear. Fear can be enlightening, give us vital information, as well as direction. During this workshop we’ll experience fear from a new perspective, allowing for growth and understanding of self.

Monday 9:00 AM Cedar Political Magick More people are being called to do magick to affect the state of our culture, communities, and systems of governance.

for analysis and implementation will be a mixture of mundane practices in combination with Low, Middle, and High magick. I will also talk about the ethics and consequences of political magick. Ivo Dominguez Jr  
Monday 9:00 AM Fir Magic with Tarot Cards Did you know that The Lovers card can be used to help you let go of an unhealthy partnership? A Hermit card stuck in your shoe can help you pass an exam?

While many people are aware that the Rider-Waite-Smith tarot is an amazing system for accessing deep spiritual wisdom, what most haven’t realized is that it’s also a powerful and practical tool for manifesting all that we dream and desire.

Monday 9:00 AM San Juan Strong Roots and Wide Branches The old ways are returning. Slumbering gods reawaken, gaining strength and gathering followers. But many of the traditions themselves are incomplete. In addition to religious regard for deities, historically most polytheistic cultures also included ancestor veneration, life cycle rituals, personal ethics, group mores, ways of living on and with the land and its spirits, religious-based artistic expression, and ritual technologies to best do these things. Let’s discuss how we can build, unearth, rediscover, shape and create whole, integrated Polytheist paths. River Devora Tradition not listed

Monday 11:00 AM Carmel More than a Medal: Xenia: Guest Friendship The idea of guest friendship is so wide spread among the tribes of Humanity that we find it at the root of many of our basic myths. Had Helen been less than a queen, Paris would have found himself unwelcome throughout the Greek world: but as she was the Queen of Sparta, the only solution was war. Xenia was the Hellenic version of what we see today in Japan in the concept of an Intangible Cultural Property, or Living National Treasure. In Hellas, you got dinner for life, owing to the many possible things society felt worthy of the reward of your personal survival. Thiasos Olympikos Hellenic / Roman

Monday 11:00 AM Oak Magic of the Lunar Mansions The Arabic Mansions of the Moon are often described as a Lunar Zodiac; a division of the passage of the Moon into 28 zones, about one per day. Each “Manzil” foretells the life of those born under it, but plays an important role in the creation of talismans in the tradition of Scholastic Image Magic. Picatrix, Cornelius Agrippa and many other grimoires detail their astrologically timed creation for countless purposes. These talismans are perhaps the simplest examples of this system, explaining their ubiquity. In this class we will discuss how to select and make basic Mansion talismans. Clifford Hartleigh Low Ceremonial

Monday 11:00 AM San Simeon A Celtic Pagan Paradigm for Modern Communities The Pagan Celts and their Druids did not just do things differently than the Greco-Roman cultures that came to dominate the western world. They saw the universe, both physical and spiritual, in a fundamentally different way and built their society accordingly.
