Topics

Pagans in the Park: Lammas

This gathering will be a short Lammas ritual to celebrate the turning of the Wheel once again.

https://www.facebook.com/events/641210423048888/

The ritual will begin shortly after 3 pm and last about 20 minutes.

***Ritual garb and tools are welcome, as we will be charging tools, stones, etc. – but please leave your athame at home as this is a public park and blades are prohibited***

The ritual will be held at Founders Park at Campbell Station, near the Longstreet pavilion.

PPET’s Pagans in the Park gatherings are open, public, gatherings hosted by Pagan Pride of East Tennessee. These rituals are designed for solitary practitioners who wish to connect with others, individuals not associated with any specific group/path, or for those who are just curious or new to Paganism. The hope is to bring more visibility and understanding to the Pagan Community in general, while also allowing individuals to connect with one another spiritually.

Anyone who is respectful is welcome to attend, participate, or just watch.

Finally, PPET will be providing printed copies of several collections of spells, meditations, and short rituals that you can pick up and add to your own BoS.

Just as we did in part 1, we will give away another journal to one lucky attendee!

Manifesting Your Will with Chaos Magick.

Chaos Magick is sometimes overlooked by today’s modern day occultists, due to its simplicity and nontraditional approach. In a nutshell, an emphasis on simplification + flexible beliefs + emotional fransmutation results, which is Chaos Magick. Learn how Chaos Magick is used to reorder your reality and begin to live the life that you want. If you’ve been looking to get involved with magick, or, you’re just looking to add something new to your already existing practices then this is a fast and reasonably easy way. Chaos Magick doesn’t rely on anointing candles, burning incense, collecting chalices, wands or a host of other paraphernalia. Most rituals only require a Sigil, your desire and a small amount of time.

Do you have imagination? Are you good at pretending? Can you be playful? Can you access your feelings? Do you have willpower and a desire to recreate your reality? Then you can perform Chaos Magick.

Bonus: attendees will receive materials to make a Magickal Cashbook, along with instructions on it’s use. This booklet combines elements of Chaos Magick, and can be used effectively by anyone. Truly a great tool to have, especially those that practice Financial magick.
