About The Event
Pagan Phoenix Southwest is an independent, locally run, non-profit company set up to run an annual Spring Pagan Conference and this year, Treadwell's is very pleased to be helping them to present their conference digitally.
We are delighted to be hosting four talks on the theme of Goddesses and Spirits from four wonderful speakers; Prof. Ronald Hutton, Levannah Morgan, Ethan Pennell & Damh the Bard.
You can join us for the whole day, or just drop in to attend particular talks. The entire conference will also be recorded for participants to access for the next 2 weeks as many times as you would like.
The full schedule of the day can be seen at Pagan Phoenix Conference 2023
Ronald Hutton - Queens of the Wild In this talk Ronald will explore the history of deity-like figures in Europe, and how hags, witches, the fairy queen, and the Green Man all came to be, and how they changed over the centuries. He looks closely at four main figures: Mother Earth, the Fairy Queen, the Mistress of the Night, and the Old Woman of Gaelic tradition, and challenges decades of debate around the female figures who have long been thought of as versions of pre-Christian goddesses.
Damh the Bard – The Green Grimoire There are a lot of Pagan books, but the best one has already been written – The Book of Nature. The challenge is learning how to read it. The crossover point between Druidry and Wilderness Awareness is where a lot of that wisdom exists, and in this talk, Damh will be leading you into the woods with nothing but a flint and steel, and a knife, but the forest is the teacher. Carry less, by knowing more.
Levannah Morgan - Sea Witchcraft This talk is based on Levannah’s recent book, A Sea Witch’s Companion (Robert Hale, 2022). She will speak about sea magic, the Goddess of the Moon and Tides, gods of the sea (and rituals to honour them), sea folklore and customs, the deeper occult concepts that lie behind sea magic, and how you can use lunar and tidal rhythms to practise your own sea witchcraft.
Ethan Pennell - The Magic & Folklore of Dartmoor In this talk, Ethan will share some of the eldritch folklore of Dartmoor, including tales of shape-shifting witches, myriad hauntings, cursed fields, encounters with the fae and whisht places. The talk will be illustrated with his own visual interpretations of the stories.
Your ticket confirmation will include a zoom link and details of how to access the event recording.£20.00
