Occulture Clash

Presented by Jason Winslade.

Now that Harry Potter has a permanent place in the collective psyche of Western culture, where does this leave actual magickal practice? In the past, occult practitioners have protested the trivialization of their beliefs and practices in popular culture. But where do we go from here? Can popular culture be a tool for educating the masses about magick? Can you “invoke” Dumbledore? Can you design a ritual based on Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Can you learn about Qabalah or Tarot from a comic book? This workshop discusses the ways in which Paganism and occultism engages and dialogues with popular culture, including ways in which we can integrate the archetypes offered by popular culture into our own evolving practice.
