Blogging Pantheacon


So, I live maybe 10 minutes away from where Pantheacon is held, and I'm going to be all up in it. I'll be photo and video blogging throughout the conference .***This is your warning, beloved peers. Best brush the crumbs out of your beard, cuz you're going on the internets.***

I'm planning on interviewing folk when I can, and will live blog some of the events. Definitely will tweet the hell out of them, anyway.

I've never been to a Pagan conference of any sort, definitely looking forward to it.


  1. Definitely cool. Wish you the best Frater A.I.T.


  2. Have fun man! Pantheacon is one of those things an east coaster like myself finds it hard to get to. Be our man on the street!

  3. Frater A.I.T. -

    I will be there as well - presenting two workshops. Look me up - we have friends in common.

  4. Awesome. I'll be checking continuously. (Or I could just check twitter.)

    If there are any photos of you, you better be wearing an indiana-jones-style hat with a large ticket that says "Press" jammed in the side of it.

  5. See, I was going to attend before... But now that you've warned me, fuggit. Hah!

    (VVF and I might not have the money to attend; if we do, we'll be there, though.)

  6. This sounds prettc cool. Have fun and looking forward to your reports, Interviews etc...

  7. @ Fra Barrabbas,

    I'll definitely look you up, Frater. Looking forward to meeting you-AIT

  8. @ Gordon,

    I wish! My heads too big for normal person hats, unfortunately. Perhaps I'll start rocking a turban.

    I'm planning on wearing a three-piece suit and a small briefcase for my kit. They won't be able to miss me. I imagine wearing a suit to Pantheacon will be similar to wearing scuba gear to a board meeting. I'll stand out.

    Also, I'm Black. There are going to be, like, four of us there tops.

Quick overview of Simple Spagyric Technique

The following is a simple rundown for creating Spagyric tinctures and Elixirs, from the manuscript 'Book of the Blossoming Flower." I wrote it so that there would be a baseline, unobfuscated understanding of how to make Spagyric products with extremely basic tools. I posted something similar earlier, but without explaining much as far as how the steps relate to the classic alchemical progression. So, here we are! Making a Spagyric Tincture 1.Take up your plant, and on the Day/Hour corresponding to the energy you wish to refine (Planet, Element, or Sign.) Chop the plant into fine pieces on your cutting board, beginning the Mortificatio stage. Sunrise on the Day corresponding to a planet is best-for astrological forces. I had success capturing the Astrological powers by beginning the work when the Sign is in the Ascendant, preferably during an Elemental Tide that corresponds to the Triplicity the Sign is associated with. For Elemental powers, I have found that beginning the w

Bullshit Siddhis

Nsala malongo, So.....powers. They exist. You work your alchemy, and they start popping up. It isn't what you expect. It's not like the comics. Subtle things happen. You get a little something here, a big something there. Some of them appear useless at first. Some years ago, after work in the upper cinnabar field, I gained the dubiously awesome ability to see a sort of spirit double floating around people. At first I was BEYOND stoked, and thought I was well on my way toward ascension from my normal state into a vicious and powerful spiritual overlord, as was foretold. By me. When I was like, fourteen. Then, after the wonder wore off, I realized that this was absolutely useless. The double gave me no information about the person, no power to manipulate myself or the other. It was just there. So. Countless hours of heat and concentration, and the end result was this? Of course it *was* useful in the long-run, as a mark of my developing spiritual s

Hoodoo and Palo Mayombe

This is an article I wrote for the Lemba Congo American Society for the Preservation of Palo Mayombe (or simply the Society, as we call it, because that's a whole lot of name) that addresses heating and cooling spirits, and the links of tradition and approach between Hoodoo and Palo Mayombe.    There is a way of thinking about reality--and learning to interact with it--that empowers all of the Congo-rooted magical systems currently alive here in the West. Having years of experience as a conjurer in the Hoodoo tradition here in America, and learning from an experienced Tata the methods of Palo Mayombe as an Engueyo,  I continually am finding parallels between the two. There are two ideas in particular that stand out that I wanted to discuss. Heating and Cooling Spirits In Hoodoo, we "heat" a spirit to great activity using herbs and roots and powders, and "cool" a spirit using water and herbs and roots as well. The concept of heating and cooling a spirit
