Panel highlight: Troubleshooting Magick Roundtable

Posted on

This one has homework! Please bring questions. Wodan_heilt_Balders_Pferd_by_Emil_Doepler

If you’ve tried to do something with magick and it hasn’t worked, our experienced magick users will help you try to figure out what you did or didn’t do (or did in the wrong order, etc.) so that it didn’t work, or didn’t work the way you’d intended.

Come prepared to explain what you did- in some detail- because it could be your materials, could be your timing, could be your process ( like preparation, execution, finishing up), or something else, and our experienced magick users will try to figure out what you can change to be more successful next time you try it.

Moderator Rev. Robert Nolan  (time/location TBD)

Posted on Updated on

Arwen_zps3e0ca28dJane T. Sibley, Ph.D., known in the SCA as Arwen Evaine, or at her shop as “Auntie Arwen” is a traditional Norse practitioner and a specialist in Norse folklore and  runes. (These pictures show her at the Society for Creative Anachronism, because the clothes there are more fun! Also in the SCA she can openly teach many of the subjects like herbalism, runes, and folklore.) She has taught at many Pagan events for decades, including at Rites of Spring, Feast of Lights, Twilight Covening, Beltane, Ecumenicon, Etheracon, Harvest Gathering, … the list goes on. Among other accomplishments, she is the co-chair and creator of Changing Times-Changing Worlds, and she created MithraCon, a conference on Mithraism and other cults in the Roman Empire.

Her herbal expertise is expressed in her shop Auntie Arwen’s Spices, where she sells many herb and spice blends as well as unique items from her varied interests and activities.

She has written several books ranging from the humorous: “Norse Mythology…According to Uncle Einar”, the novel “The Hammer of the Smith”, to the academic “The Divine Thunderbolt: Missile of the Gods”, and soon to be published: Way of the Wise: Traditional Norwegian Folk and Magic Medicine, as well as the true adventures of “A Different Dragon”.
