The Sword in European Magic : Powers of the East || Mary Mooney

Mary Mooney || NYHFA (Swordwind) || Charlotte, NC, USA

Weapons: Lecture

Spanning Arthurian legend, contemporary Paganism, and beyond, the sword remains one of the most powerful symbols throughout the Western Mystery tradition. In this workshop, we survey the history of magical blades, from Masonry to Tarot, Hermetic Qabalah to Wicca, and the many varieties of esoteric traditions practiced by occultists and magicians today. If your HEMA club has ever felt a little like a secret society, you’re in good company.
