WiccaUK Discussion Group
Worksheets and information from previous dates are available on the WiccaUK page
for the discussion group.
Yesterday was our second meeting at which the discussion topics were The Middle Pillar Exercise and the Goddess Elen. In attendance were myself, synesis
and an American from WiccaUK whom I don't know who was in the country on business. That makes one less than last time, a little disappointing.
We started with synesis
giving us a little background info on the Middle Pillar, he and I then talked through the sephiroth involved. We all did the qabalistic cross, then I did the LBRP. Hopefully at future meetings we can have a different person do the LBRP each time before getting started so that everyone has a chance to actually do ritual in front of people and get the scariness of it over with. synesis
then led us through the Middle Pillar, demonstrating how tricky it is to vibrate god names with other people when not everyone agrees on how they are pronounced. i think it went quite well, I certainly enjoyed it although sarah_m
both developed headaches and casparian
got a nose bleed halfway through. Apparantly these physical effects are not uncommon but it's not something I've ever had myself. synesis
then demonstrated the Banishing Ritual of the Hexagram as he was in the mood to do it.
If you want to know more about that see these links...From the Ra-Hoor-Khuit Network's Magickal LibraryRitual of the HexagramNotes from Hermetic.comThe Unicursal Hexagram (which synesis used)
We will probably cover it more fully in a future discussion group.
After that we had a somewhat desultory discussion of the Goddess Elen as it turns out none of us really know much about her despite looking her up on the web as best we could. Apparantly the Moot With No Name on Wednesday will probably tell us something about her as Caroline Wise discovered her or something.
