Amodali is an experimental artist who’s work has focussed within a wide variety of media on explorations of magickal sexuality.
In this talk she will present an overview on her insights and experiences during more than 20 years of work exploring the Babalon current, and suggest paradigms for working with this magick that embraces progressive future development. Amodali’s multimedia/interactive project “Liber Incarnadine’ will be introduced in this talk prior to it’s debut performance at the evening session of the symposium.
Rufus Harrington was initiated into Alexandrian Wicca as a teenager, and there introduced to Enochian Magic. Entranced by all things magickal he dropped out of university to live in a witchy commune and to study the Art Magical full time. He spent three years studying in the library of the British Museum, including much poring over the original diaries of John Dee, from whence he reconstituted his true and faithful re-imagining of the work of Dee and Kelley. He has worked with this system for the last quarter of a century, and is still here, and still sane; indeed he is now a senior consultant cognitive behavioural therapist training other people in the modern art of healing via mental magic. Today Rufus will share his knowledge of the system, some of his techniques, and his experiences of living with Enochia.
