First Pagan Conference in Houston in over Thirty Years
"A belief in magic as a means of influencing the world appears to have been common in all cultures. Some of these beliefs crossed over into emerging religions giving influence to their religious celebrations. Over time, religiously- based supernatural events acquired their own flavor, separating themselves from standard magic. Some modern religions such as Wicca, NeoPagan, Asatru, or Heathenism embrace connections to magic, while others retain only echoes of their distant origins."
Houston Pagan Conference the first in over 30 years, will be held on May 18th at the Northwoods Unitarian Universalist Church in The Woodlands.
Ideas that will be discussed at the conference may include:
~ Divinity' s place in magic
~ Magic and its relationship to religion (various or single religion)
~ Magic as a conduit to the Divine
~ History of Magic
~ Foundations of Magic
~ Raven Grimassi
~ John Beckett
~ Rev. Ellen Cooper-Davis
~ John R. Nelson
~ Debra Davis
