In this lecture, Vadge illustrates this path with reflections from his personal experiences.

BLK Celebration 2019 – Sashah Ruge presents “The Mechanics of Magic – Magical Machines Throughout Occult History”

At BLK Celebration 2019

Sashah Ruge

will present

“The Mechanics of Magic – Magical Machines Throughout Occult History”

Sash

Throughout the ages, select individuals have chosen to look deeply in to those aspects of our world that remain hidden, to more deeply understand how we affect change in this world beyond the standard mode of the masses. These individuals can see the connections between the physical realm and the spiritual, and through contact with the spirits these individuals have developed tools in our world that aid in the affecting of the world of spirit, and spiritual tools to affect our physical realm. These individuals are the Magicians, or the Mechanics of Magic. During this discussion, we will learn of many different types of magical machines created through the course of our vibrant occult history, from the sympathetic magics of ancient shamans, the curse tablets and other magica materia of the PGM, magical machines in the grimoire tradition, beginning with “Picatrix mechanix”, or the art of dialing in the perfect astrological elections to empower talismans. We will also discuss the concept of Art as a magical machine, specifically the multidimensional machines in the work of Michael Bertiaux. The discussion will conclude with a presentation of several examples of magical machines from the authors’ collection including a new device created specifically for this discussion.

Sash

Sashah Ruge is an artist, professional chef, and student of magic and the occult for over 30 years, with a particular interest in spirit communication and work via the grimoire traditions, LHP philosophy and magical techniques, both traditional Haitian Vodou and Esoteric Voudon, as well as a strong focus on the utilization of H.P. Lovecraft’s mythos in a mix of ceremonial magic and shamanism that has led Sashah to become the directing force within the Lovecraftian coven mentioned in Bertiaux’s writings. Sashah was consecrated as a Gnostic bishop by Michael Bertiaux and acts as Head of the Transyuggothian Brotherhood of Shamans, Aiding others in the quests of spirit contact from those outside our traditional spiritual boarders.

At this year’s GODLIKE show,  Veronica Lynn will take us back to the Bronze Age, by bringing Qetesh to the stage! Originally a Canaanite deity of love and desire, Qetesh gained popularity in New Kingdom-era Egypt as a goddess of sacred pleasure and fertility. While many depictions of Egyptian deities are in profile, Qetesh is seen facing forward, nude, riding on the back of a lion, with snakes in her left hand and lotus flowers in her right. That’s our kind of goddess!

BLK Celebration 2019 Performers – Misha & the ShimmyBoom Tribe present HECATE

At BLK Celebration’s 2019’s GODLIKE show,

Misha & the ShimmyBoom Tribe

will bring us

Hecate – Maiden, Mother, and Crone

misha1.jpg

“In our dance we honor Hecate, for her bright shining light even in the darkest of times, her wisdom to embrace change, and her magical and mystical ways. Hecate reminds us to change and embrace transitions, don’t worry about the dust, or what others think of you, do the things you’ve always wanted to do, for you, embrace the changes that come with aging and be grateful you can still dance through life.

While our invocation of this Goddess honors her Greek form, she is a power that has been known to many cultures throughout the ages. She is the guardian of the crossroads, the woman who is both wise and wondering, shifting through all aspects of a woman’s journey. She is the dark Queen of Witches, Goddess of the Moon, and a guide in the Underworld, supporting other women, in the form of Persephone, even in the darkest of times. Her magic is legendary, and she has one foot in this world and one in the next as she has dominion over ghosts and spirits.”

Misha

Misha is the Director for Shimmyboom and Caravan Project Sarasota and teaches both regular classes and professional dance certifications in the Sarasota/Bradenton area as well as worldwide. She is a Priestess of the Sacred Earth, an Elemental Enchantress who speaks the ancient language of flowers and foxes, both in dance and visual art, to help people connect deeply with nature and find their wild souls. She combines her training in Shamanic energy work and storytelling together with over a decade of deep study in multiple forms of bellydance to create dances rich in movement, texture, and lore.

Misha will bring her ShimmyBoom Tribe to dance for us from Sarasota, Florida. This group of dancers of all ages and backgrounds gathers together to perform their own special sassy and spirited brand of improvisational tribal bellydance in the Gypsy Caravan format. Together they “speak” an intricate dance language that, once learned, allows dancers to communicate in the moment and improvise to the music, creating a beautiful dance that flows from the heart. Tribal bellydance is rooted in many different dance forms; watch closely and you will see familiar moves of bellydance along with inspiration from Flamenco and other world dances.
