OCCULT II Sept 26th - 28th 2014, Salem, MA.
Sarah Jezebel Wood and Aepril Schaile are so very pleased and proud to present the amazing line-up of Artists, Teachers and Presenters for this year's OCCULT! It is sure to be another amazing year!!!!
A weekend long Esoteric Salon honoring, exploring and celebrating the intertwining vines which feed both Magick and Creative Art. Featuring workshops/lectures, art exhibition/salon, panel discussion, performances, rituals... and a masque.
Mission and Vision: To recognize that, especially together, both Magick and Art are greater than the sum of their parts, and each in dwells the other; they are rooted together. To raise consciousness, challenging false perceptions of separation between these so-imagined opposed sorceries. Though art as entertainment has its place and time, this Esoteric Salon moves us well past materialist commercialism. We recognize the power of Art to create spiritual movement and full expression to the divine Will--dancing, singing, painting, acting, sculpting, filming, poeting the ineffable. We confront the notion that the meaning and content of Art is not as important as its form and materials. With OCCULT, we seek to challenge old beliefs through the juxtaposition of beauty and magick, of art and ritual, blending the ingredients to make an event of highest harmony, a conjunctio of non-opposites.
“All Art is Magick…There is no more potent means than Art of calling forth true Gods to visible appearance." —Aleister Crowley, Liber ABA, Part 3, Chapter X.
