Featuring Oberon Zell and Anne Duthers

Sunday, August 13

5:00 pm

Saint Mary Salon 2 [map]

Full Schedule

Once upon a time, education was imbued with a mystique of learning arcane lore and forbidden knowledge. The earliest schools were schools of Wizardry—such as Plato’s Academy in Athens, and the Pythagorean Mystery " School. Today there are several correspondence courses and online schools of Witchcraft, Magick, and Wizardry. What do such schools have to offer that cannot be found in the public education system? And is it really possible to learn magick online? What are the differences between Witches, Magicians, and Wizards—and what kind of training do they each require? Learn about the Grey School’s system of colors associated with each of the Wizard’s paths.

The Grey School of Wizardry teaches all subjects, ancient and modern, in the larger context of “Wisdom Teachings,” expounding the ubiquity of magick in the mundane arts and sciences. Courses offered in the Grey School provide a grounded “Classical Education” in magickal history, mythology, mathemagics, lore, natural philosophy, cosmology, alchemy, metaphysics, and even Latin. The performing arts are included as well, with classes in illusion and the Bardic Arts.
