The countless hours that our grandmothers spent on rosaries, novenas and devotions to saints forged deep pathways to Spirit that are our legacy. We’ll discuss how to access and utilize these pathways to deepen our spiritual practice and improve the efficacy of our magical workings.

The presenter was raised within an Irish-Catholic family and grew up during the pre-Vatican II era in a neighborhood that was largely made up of immigrant Italian Catholics.   After leaving Catholicism and spending decades exploring other paths, some of us come to feel that we threw the baby out with the bath water and regret that we did not find a way to move beyond Catholicism without rejecting the power of its ancestral connections and the beauty and efficacy of some of its spiritual practices. It’s a shame that so many of us rejected the wisdom and spiritual power of our elders because we didn’t like the package it is wrapped in. The countless hours that our grandmothers spent on rosaries, novenas and devotions to saints forged deep pathways to Spirit that are our legacy. We’ll discuss how to access and utilize these pathways to deepen our spiritual practice and improve the efficacy of our magical workings. We’ll briefly touch on the intriguing history  and ongoing evolution of Folk Magic in America, but the primary focus will be on the practice of Catholic Folk Magic from the point of view of the presenter. A Catholic folk magic altar will be set up and there will be time for questions and answers. Please note that Catholic history and doctrine will NOT be discussed
