Summoning Spirits - Ancient Magic for Modern Paganism

Presented by Ian Corrigan.

Ancient Pagan magic was primarily about working with spirits. From the Gods and Goddesses through the daemons and elementals to the spirits of the dead, magical ritual was about contacting and making alliances with powerful beings. Some of this Pagan lore has been preserved in the so-called grimoires - medieval and early modern textbooks of magical practice. Though re-clothed in Christian theology these manuals use techniques that can be traced directly to Pagan times and cultures. This talk will outline the basics of classical spirit-arte, and discuss how they can be applied in a modern Pagan spirituality and magic. Several practical techniques will be discussed, and the methods will be placed in context for a polytheistic, nature-centered path.
