The Art of Scrying

July 23, 2017 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm
Alombrados O.T.O.
3151 Dauphine St, New Orleans, LA 70117

Join Aleksandr Van Beber and the Académie Gnostique for a workshop at the Alombrados Oasis. Here we will take a practical approach to scrying, the timeless art of visualizing spirits, symbols, and events of the past, present, and future.

Divination is a major tool of Western introspection. No tool of divination is as revered as the scrying surface: be it the fabled shew stone of John Dee, Solomon’s Triangle of the Art, the cup of the biblical Joseph, or the spiritualists’ famed Crystal ball; scrying is revered as one of the most difficult and productive of the divinatory arts. The mystique of scrying can be found in the adage “seeing is believing,” for here we sublimate our senses in the realm of the spirits.

We will briefly discuss the tools and techniques of scrying, as well as the method and purpose of recording a scrying session.

We will then put into practice the art of scrying with its various and diverse tools.

This is a practical workshop, participants will be expected to bring:
•Comfortable clothes
•A notebook and writing instrument
•Optionally participants may profit from abstaining from alcohol for 48 hours, and bringing a favorite scrying instrument.

Scrying instruments will be provided.
