About The Event
Portrayed variously as a half-heard whisper of heresy among the Knights Templar, a heavy-metal Satanic icon and an alchemical symbol representing the union of opposites, Baphomet is a 'Deity without a Myth', embodying ideas including gender fluidity, the sacred symbolism of disability, and the totality of the life force on earth.
In this workshop, Julian Vayne, co-author of The Book of Baphomet, will help participants discover the history and living power of this figure through discussion and hands-on magical practice.
Julian Vayne is an occultist and author of numerous books, essays, journals and articles in both the academic and esoteric press. A regular speaker at events, and facilitator of retreats and workshops, his work is informed by chaos magic and lineages within Wicca and Tantra. Julian is a co-organizer of the psychedelic conference Breaking Convention, and sits on the academic board of The Journal of Psychedelic Studies.
