Thor Halvorsen Divination, Symbology, Culture and identity

Posted on

Join Tchipakkan and CTCW speaker Thor Halvorson as they talk about divination as an approach to tarot, symbology, culture, and identity. There are not quite as many ways of using the Tarot cards as there are those who use them (although some might say there are more, as many of us use them in more than one way), so let’s look at a few.

We’re going to try to cover active and passive divination, active including scrying, tarot, reading tealeaves, runes, trance, etc. Talk about philosophy, history, cultural impact, symbolism, intuitive vs more intellectual approaches, divine interaction and natural divination, and we’ll probably jump from one to another of these subjects. Please feel free to call in if you have questions:

Taylor Ellwood and Space/Time Magick on the New Normal

Posted on Updated on

Please join Tchipakkan on the New Normal 8 pm Wednesday, 1-27-16, 8-9 p.m. est.
space time magic

Join Tchipakkan and Taylor Ellwood as we discuss space/time magic and how it works. We’ll explore what the fundamental principles of space/time magic are and how someone can work with space/time magic. We’ll even mix in some pop culture magic and look at how pop culture mythology encourages space/time magic. The study of metaphysics is the study of reality- how the multiverse works. Since it’s all connected, I expect we will explore a range of topics.

 

Taylor Ellwood is a self described mad scientist, magical experimenter and a publisher of cutting edge esoteric bootaylor elwood_ks. “I’m always developing new systems of magic, combining various magical practices and techniques with other disciplines and practices. I also teach classes on magic, provide tarot readings, and offer one-on-one magical apprenticeships for anyone looking to expand their spiritual horizons and change the way they understand practice magic.

“I have a broad and extensive background in both Western and Eastern esoteric practices including Taoism, Dzogchen, Chaos magic, neoshamanism, Hermeticism, Quabalah, and so on and so forth. But I’m interested in more than just the esoteric traditions and because I believe in living a holistic life, I think its important to apply everything I know to my spiritual practices (and vice versa) so you won’t just find me exploring magic, but also business, science, literacy, and other topics, in order to apply all of them to each other and as a result experiment with what I can do as a magician and a human being.”
