Come and enjoy a night out at The Toronto Pagan Pub Moot at The Jersey Giant, 71 Front Street East (corner of Church and Front)

Monday, December 15th, 2008

7:00pm to close

Come out to the Toronto Pagan Pub Moot at The Jersey Giant!

Enjoy a night out with other Pagans and Pagan-friendly folk of the GTA. The Jersey Giant is a pagan friendly venue that offers a complete menu and a well stocked bar.
Children are welcome.

Both Union Station AND King Subway Station is in walking distance and is wheelchair/stroller accessible.

There is parking behind the Jersey Giant, parking on Front Street, and parking off of Church.

The Toronto Pagan Pub Moot is the first Pagan Pub Moot in Canada (c. Feb 1996) and is an open and friendly social event that meets every Third Calendar Monday of every month. It is open to Pagans, Wiccans, Witches, Druids, Asatru, etc of ALL ages and those who are new and would like to learn more. As this is a social event, there are no lectures or specific talks. It is a GREAT place to meet up with old friends and make new friends.

The TPPM is also a great place to find out what else is going on in the Greater Toronto Area Pagan Community. A wonderful place to network, grow and learn. We get about 30 - 60 people at each Moot so it is a great place to connect.

The Jersey Giant welcomes the Toronto Pagan Pub Moot by offering a private room, some food, drinks, those who are 19 years or younger CAN now come to the Moot! Pagan Parents can come and bring their children.
Those who are 16 to 19 should come with others and those who are under 16 should come with a guardian or parent.

Cthoobi, an Oobi spoof [Nov. 25th, 2008|04:25 pm]

This is an Oobi spoof featuring the dark god Cthulu!



Grab the shirt!

Ziraxia is an artist built tshirt company.

If any of you guys are interested, the shop takes submissions from artist all over the world. The artist keeps the all rights to their art work and also gets a royalty of 2 bucks per shirt sold. This is a great idea for small bands that want t-shirt, but don’t want to pay a printer for a million t-shirts.

Interview, anyone? [Nov. 17th, 2008|12:10 am]
Toronto's Occult Community

[Current Mood |chipperchipper]

Hey all,

My online class has decided to do our feature package on youth and religion. I thought, given the stigma attached to religion in an increasingly secularized society, that it would be awesome to find a highly educated pagan to interview -- I want to showcase the fact that it is quite possible to be highly educated and still deeply spiritual.

I'm in Toronto and would need to meet in person for interviews, so you'd have to be in this general area. You also need to be willing to have your pictures and possibly your legal name appear online (I'll check on the name with our prof; it may be that because of the marginal nature of paganism, a pseudonym of your choosing would be acceptable).

My ideal person would be:
-Under 35, or even better, under 30
-Either be working on a doctorate, or have a masters or doctorate already
-Degree would ideally be in something technical (science, engineering, math) to make the perceived contrast between stereotype and reality more stark
-Articulate and well-spoken

Please contact me if you'd be interested/willing, or forward this to any email lists or people who might be interested.

Blessed be!

Danae

A Pagan Testament [Nov. 15th, 2008|03:18 pm]
Toronto's Occult Community

northwestpass
Come celebrate the release of Brendan Myers' latest book: "A Pagan Testament". The author will read from text, answer questions, and will have copies available to sign.

Date: 14th December, 2008
Place: The Corktown Pub, 175 Young street, Hamilton, Ontario
Time: 5 pm.

This event is generously hosted by the Hammertown Pagan Pub Moot: http://hammertownppm.com

About the book:
Pagans often claim that their spiritual inspiration comes not from a written scripture but from personal experience and original creativity. Yet there are many written works which also constitute its testament. Some of them are thousands of years old, such as the Descent of Ishtar, and the Homeric Hymn to Demeter. Others are more recent, such as the Charge of the Goddess.

"A Pagan Testament" collects these original works together, along with the poetry and prose that inspired the founders of the modern Pagan movement. It also includes the largest collection of circle songs and wisdom teachings ever published. These form the Pagan equivalent of the Biblical Psalms and Proverbs. They were collected by the author in a survey of Pagan folklore, from almost 2,000 people in twelve countries around the world.

For more information about the book, click here:
http://wildideas.net/cathbad/pagantestament.html

View the book's "Movie Trailer" on YouTube here:
http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=nV2p4_Z4Ui8

For those who cannot attend the launch, the book can be purchased from any online retailer, direct from the publisher, and ordered from any bricks-and-mortar bookstore in the English-speaking world. ISBN: 9781846941290

About the author:
Brendan Myers teaches philosophy at the University of Guelph and with the Cherry Hill Seminary. He is the recipient of OBOD's prestigious Mount Haemus Award in 2008. He is the author of six books, including most recently "The Other Side of Virtue" and "The Mysteries of Druidry".

After the book launch, stick around for the Hammertown Pagan Pub Moot, at the same location, later that same evening. Musical guest: Heather Dale! http://www.heatherdale.com/

Q: Didn't we celebrate the launch of Brendan's latest book way back in July?

A: Yes we did, but this is yet another new book! This guy just keeps on writing and never stops. Amazing.

Doomsayer's Digest now available! [Oct. 27th, 2008|09:38 pm]
Toronto's Occult Community

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

The Subtlety or Force Encampment of Albuquerque, NM has released its premier issue of the new quarterly local body publication: Doomsayer's Digest.

There are only 240 in print with less than 50 remaining!

This publication is developed and edited by the Director of the US-OTO's "best of" anthology project as announced on USGL's website's 2007 Strategic Plan. It is designed in response to a lacking of explorative academia he noticed while surveying Local Body Publications from within the past 20 years.

The Doomsayer's Digest attempts to bring an academic rigor into esoteric studies and creative writing. It does not feature poetry or art, despite the editor's appreciation of each, but specializes its pages to a scientific pursuit of hermetica without the empiricist fetishism born of post-modernism or the abortive birth therefrom in the form of materialism. It combines traditionalist analysis, academic standards, and subject matter relevant to Thelemic culture, history, and interests.

In Volume 1, Issue 1, 2008's fall issue, there are two featured articles. One is titled "Of Iron and Youth" and explores the concept of the soldiery of the Eisenjugend (through Hermeneutic analysis) as a symptom of the Aeon of Horus' difficulties for the modern warrior and the common mercenary. The other article, pompously titled "The Phoenix," is an exploration of the mystic aviary that bears the same name and is the first and only comprehensive hermeneutic, historical, anthropological, traditionalist, and magical dissertation on this very relevant subject. It has been praised by persons within and without the Order as a "must read for any serious esotericist" and "subtle allegory of the initiated experience."

I do personally hope yall enjoy it and get yourself a copy and a subscription. They're on sale for $5 (plus shippin') a pop.

You can order a copy for yourself at the Subtlety or Force Encampment's website: sof-oto.org. Subscriptions are also available. Love is the law, love under will.

I was talking with someone recently, and mentioned a store to them, that they didn’t realize was in the city, which got me thinking that I may know some stores that cater to occultists in the city, and that other people may know ones I don’t. So I thought I’d put it out for this community, if you know of any stores, which cater directly or indirectly (like Thuna below) to occultists, magic(k)ians, pagans, new agers or the related ilk, post them here. Post their names, and address (or area if you’re unsure), and what they offer. I'm curious to know what may be out there, and have a better listing to work from.


Formula 1 Religious Supplies – 3284 Danforth Ave (just West of where Danforth Ave and Danforth Road meet) – 416-699-6638

Formula 1 is a botanica, as such it largely caters toward Hoodoo/Santeria and related African Diaspora traditions. It sells some herbs, but not many, but has a good collection of oils, powders, washes and incenses, as well as “hoodoo candles” (I don’t know if there is a real name for them), candles with images and prayers for specific intents, sometimes made with appropriate oils.


Thuna Herbals – 298 Danforth Ave (Danforth and Broadview) – 416-465-7430

While not really an occult shop, Thuna Herbals is a great apothecary, carrying a wide variety of herbs in various natural forms, as well as some resins and gums. I buy the majority of my incense supplies from here. Also as this is an herbal store, in the sense of herbs to be taken orally, they tend to be higher quality (and price) than what you find in most occulty shops, if that is something that matters in your practice.


Eternal Moments – 3300 Yonge Street (North of Lawrence) – 416-486-9887

I haven’t been to this location, only having been to the one on Bloor that closed a year or two ago. If it is like it’s sister shop, it is a general metaphysics / new age store. They carry stick/cone incenses, candles, books, jewelleries and stones, and other assorted things.


I know I’m missing stuff that I know of (it’s been a long day), and I’m sure there maybe places I’m not even aware of, so I ask you good lurkers to help me fill my knowledge gaps (and likely those of others who watch this group).

Thanks
