Who Will Be At The PF London Conference Tomorrow?

I'm really looking forward to the 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 
I almost wish I wasn't giving a talk though, because I think I'd rather be listening to the people speaking at the same time as me, 11am. It is also hard to choose what to go to next as there are three things that sound really interesting straight after that. However, I shouldn't really complain that there are too many interesting things to do, should I?

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.
