You may have wondered about the rather unwieldy name for our conference. When we were designing the conference, we were trying to figure out what we wanted to accomplish. What we hope to do is to change our parent culture in which the reality of many energy fields, many beings and many effective practices that can enhance our lives are rejected out of hand. We were thinking how great it would be if our children’s generation lived in a world where it was accepted that people are psychic and you wouldn’t have to hint about it, talk around it, or pretend that it wasn’t real so that you wouldn’t be considered foolish. That’s backwards! How foolish is it to deny evidence‽
We feel that if we can get the world to accept these realities and both benign and useful (yes, some people still feel that anything “occult” must be dangerous!) that they will be available to enhance daily life. How much better off we are when we know the benefits of using herbs for medicinal as well as culinary purposes. Yet there are still people out there who figure that if a remedy doesn’t come in a box, it “can’t work”.
There are people who scoff at “water witching”, yet many people quietly have a dowser locate their well. The American Dowsing Society has groups that provide this service in third world countries, and their experiences show how well it works.
I know that I use dowsing nearly daily to find lost objects around the house. Our family uses crystals for healing, as well as homeopathy, acupressure and aromatherapy. All of these things are said by critics to be useless, and even harmful if they prevent people from going to “established” practitioners. If they weren’t working, of course we’d go to someone who could help.
But we need to change the story- the dialogue- how people talk about the unknown. At this point anything paranormal in film is still lumped into the Horror genre. As you may have noticed in the last paragraph, much of what I use these ‘supernatural’ techniques for is practical, finding lost objects or healing faster. The world would simply be easier to navigate if we didn’t deny an entire section of available human abilities. So when thinking about the future, think about a world where there is no resistance, no denial, no pretense that magick isn’t real. The world is changing, we just want to make it better.
Good Vibrations: Energetic Resonance of Tools and Modalities with Maryalyce Merrit
Crystals, Essential Oils, Chakras, Auras, Reiki, Color Therapy, Sound Healing, Channeling, Sacred Geometry, Magick, Prayer… we will link it all through energetic resonance. In this class, we will explore these topics, how they work, and how they can be linked together. We will discuss what it means to “vibrate higher”, how we can do this. What lowers our vibration, brings us down, harshes our mellow? What is the reason for working with light and shadow? Why do we need that balance and how can that help us to heal and to be better equipped to reach others? It is all about vibration and we will delve into all of this and more. 90 minutes

E.D.C. or “every day carry” refers to a kit that is carried in pocket, purse, backpack, or briefcase and is avalible at all times. While usually this refers to a survival kit or escape kit, this principal can be applied to people in the spiritual/magical/metaphysical community. Starwolf will discuss how to create a kit that will “hopefully” fit your needs. If you already have a kit or have started one, bring it along to show off. Note we will NOT be discussing concealed carry firearms or the proper caliber of silver bullets.
