Pagan Federation London Conference tomorrow. The theme this year is Magic and Mind. It will be lovely to meet up with friends - some of whom I only know through social media, so this will be my first chance to catch up with them face to face. There's also a superb range of talks and workshops - here's the list from the programme:
- Lyn Balis: Home Funerals
- Rebecca Beattie: Twentieth Century Literary Pagans
- Sascha Cooper: Goddess Belly Dance
- Tomaš D'Aradia The Fool's Journey
- Astrid Haszprunarova: Spiritual Alchemy: The Magic and Mysteries of Hermes
- Philip Shallcrass: Death: The Ultimate Tickle
- Gemma Stacey Animal spirit guides and animal psychic communication
- Amie Summer: Conservation Medicine
- Cat Treadwell: Inspiration in Darkness - Balance and Challenge
- Caroline Wise: Goddess Oracles
- Jonathan Woodley: Coming of Age: The unsubtle art of effective rites of passage
- And also myself, Lucya Starza, giving a talk on Candle Magic
There's also an esoteric market and I'm intending to doing a bit of browsing and maybe some shopping. I know The Atlantis Bookshop is running the book stall there and I understand shop owner Geraldine Beskin should have a few copies of my own book - Pagan Portals - Candle Magic - on sale, which is very nice of her. After the closing ritual, there will be the chance to dance to live music from Spriggan Mist.
The Pagan Federation London Conference - Magic and Mind is on from 10.30am on Saturday 20 August at Westside Academy, 8-30, Galena Road, Hammersmith, London W6 0LT. I understand there is good disabled access in the building and the nearest Tube station is Ravenscourt Park. Tickets are best bought in advance and are £12 for PF members and £18 for non-members, but once you are inside all the talks and workshops are completely free to attend.
