The Mighty Dead Class Series - Learning from Legendary Practitioners: Teiresias
The Cauldron Black is delighted to announce a year-long, twelve-part monthly series dedicated to The Mighty Dead: historic, influential, prolific (and occasionally infamous!) witches, magicians, occultists, conjure folk, seers, and diviners.This class series will begin in January 2021 and run through December 2021. Once a month, The Cauldron Black will feature a guest speaker who will present their class on a particular figure or aspect of the elevated dead, lineage ancestors, heroic cultus, and/or the tutelary shades of returned and ennobling souls.Through this study and celebration of such magically proficient shades, we will seek to explore useful tools, techniques, and tuition from these necromantic patrons for contemporary magical practitioners of all stripes, creeds, and persuasions.This class will ask what we can learn for magical practice from the myth, history, and legend of Teiresias. Teiresias was the blind prophet of Apollo and is particularly well known for his practice of necromancy, divination by means of birds, and following his death his importance for the necromancy of others such as Odysseus. Teiresias spent time as a woman; becoming a priestess of Hera, getting married and having children, before being turned back into a man and being struck blind and gifted with the power of prophecy. He offers both a model of emulation in magical practice as well as a vital and powerful spiritual intermediary or patron.About the Presenter:Kadmus is a practicing ceremonial magician. He has written extensively for the website "Gods and Radicals" and recently published the book "True to the Earth: Pagan Political Theology" through Gods and Radicals Press, presented his paper "True to the Earth and a Pagan Conception of the Self" at the conference Rewriting the Future: 100 Years of Esoteric Modernism and Psychoanalysis, and taught two classes at the 2019 Salem Summer Symposium on "Pagan Conceptions of the Self" and "The Role of Magic in a Pagan Cosmos".
