Drawing Down the Moon: The Mechanics of Invoking Deity

Presented by Jason Mankey.

The ritual of "Drawing Down the Moon" has become one of the most important and essential parts of Modern Wicca, but how did the concept and ritual develop, and what is really going on when you "draw down" deity? Mankey explores the history of the Drawing Down ceremony, focusing on its alleged origins in Ancient Greece and how the ceremony has developed in modern times. The differences between invoking and evoking will also be discussed, and what types of energy are associated with each. This workshop also provides information for performing your own "drawing down" ceremonies. One of the major differences between Modern Paganism and other living religions is how close we (Pagans) get to our deities, "drawing down" is the most powerful way to celebrate that closeness.
