Oberon Zell-Ravenheart

Oberon Zell-Ravenheart (1942-) is a renowned Wizard and elder in the worldwide magickal community. In 1962, he co-founded the Church of All Worlds, a Pagan church with a futuristic vision, and he has been involved in the founding of several other major groups and alliances. First to apply the terms "Pagan" and "Neo-Pagan" to the newly emerging Nature Religions of the 1960s, and through his publication of Green Egg magazine (1968-2000), Oberon was instrumental in the coalescence of the modern Pagan movement. In 1970, he had a profound Vision of the Living Earth which he published as an early version of "The Gaia Thesis."

Oberon is the primary artist of The Mythic Images Collection (www.MythicImages.com), producing beautiful altar figurines of Gods, Goddesses, and mythological creatures. His first book is Grimoire for the Apprentice Wizard (New Page Books, 2004). He is Founder and Headmaster of the online Grey School of Wizardry (www.GreySchool.com).


Living in NorCalifia, Oberon is lifemate to Morning Glory and senior member of the Ravenheart Family.

A School of Wizardry for All Ages

The "Harry Potter" phenomenon has swept millions of teenagers into an interest in the teachings and practice of magick, Witchcraft and Wizardry. In his Grimoire for the Apprentice Wizard (New Page Books, 2004), Oberon Zell-Ravenheart and the Grey Council compiled a modern "Boy Scout Handbook" of Wizardry. Now, over the past year, Oberon has created the online "Grey School of Wizardry" to continue these studies. The Grey School now has over two dozen teachers and over 400 students, with over 100 classes currently available, in 16 color-coded Departments-providing a full program in Apprentice Wizardry, culminating in a Journeyman's Certificate. And now Oberon is working his second book: "Companion for the Apprentice Wizard." Oberon will talk of how all this came to be, where he sees it going, and how you can be part of it.

Phoenix Arising: The 3rd Resurrection of the Church of All Worlds

Founded in 1962 by Oberon Zell and Lance Christie, the Church of All Worlds (CAW) became the first Pagan church to achieve full legal recognition in the US and Australia. It was also the first to identify as "Pagan." Through the publication of 136 issues of Green Egg magazine over a 32-year span, CAW was a major catalyst in the growth and unification of the worldwide Pagan community; its influence acknowledged in Drawing Down the Moon and many other books on the history of the Pagan movement. But in 2000, Green Egg ceased publication, and with the transfer of HQ to Ohio, the entire Church was restructured in a manner inimical to its founders. At Starwood 2004, Oberon made a presentation on the decline of CAW, for which the President of the CAW Board threatened to sue him and everyone in sight. Within two months, that man had died, and the remaining BoD members voted to dissolve the Church itself. But CAW remains strong and active in NorCalifia and Australia, and with the dissolution of the Ohio branch, members in those places are now resurrecting their beloved Church, with Oberon at its head once again. Oberon will speak of the Phoenix Cycle of CAW, and present a new Vision for its future.
