At this time of year, when myth and reality can mingle and our dreams and desires just might come true if we wish it so, Antique Beat and A Curious Invitation are hosting London Esoteric. This two-day festival of events focusing on the weird and wonderful includes talks, workshops and concerts in the restored chapel at London's Brompton Cemetery.
Subjects covered include telepathy, secret societies, LSD, theremins, a possible time machine (pictured right) and a class on candle magic run by me.
My practical candle magic workshop is on Sunday 29 April at 10.30am. Here is what it says about it on the London Esoteric website:
Candle magic is a basic and central skill in the repertoire of pagans, witches and indeed anyone who practices magic. It’s easy to learn, useful and coveted as a favourite method amongst practitioners.Tickets for the class are £25. You can find out more and book here: http://londonmonthofthedead.com/tickets.html
If you always wanted to know how to cast a simple magic spell in accordance with old European traditions, then this workshop is for you. Lucya Starza leads you step by step with principles, methods, and how-to: we provide all supplies. By the end you will have a prepared candle and spell to take away with your newly-gained expertise, and will know how to do your own candle magic at home.
London Esoteric runs over the weekend of 28 and 29 April 2018. It is at Brompton Cemetery Chapel (north gate off Old Brompton Rd, south gate off Fulham Rd), Kensington, London, SW10 9UG.
