Event description


It's easy enough to talk about the occult. You know: wands, cauldrons, tarot cards, naked women in the woods and robed men in English libraries. It's also not hard to point out the occult in history and politics; whether it's the infamous UK magus Aleister Crowley, Ronald and Nancy Reagan's interest in psychics and astrology, or the Salem witch trials.

But what is the occult? Is it a philosophy? A practice? A reservoir of power? Mumbo jumbo anti-science and delusion?

And why should you care, anyway?

In this live interactive course and Q&A, writer, teacher, and activist Conner Habib will conjure up a definition that outlines just how radical, exciting, and useful the occult is, especially in our dynamic and intense moment in history.

You'll explore

- How the occult can and does figure into your everyday life, even if you're not a practitioner (or a believer!).

- Why the occult is so stigmatized in our culture, and how to puruse it without shame anyway.

- Differing philosophies of the occult across disciplines and practitioners.

- How the occult relates to politics, economics, and science.

- Whether or not this is all just a bunch of hocus-pocus bunk.

and much more!

Conner will guide you through the complex, fascinating, and sometimes just plain weird world of the occult in this live, online course. It's for the beginner and the adept alike.

The one-session, hourlong lecture will be followed by a Q&A, so you'll be part of the mind-expanding discussion.

If you can't attend the day of, or if you want to watch the lecture again, you'll have exclusive access to a recording of the course for 90 days.
