Bathed in the bright, warm glow of a lamp we are in the world of our ancestors which links us back to the past and grounds us. Not just for light or beauty, oil lamps are also used for magic, prayer, petitioning, and spell casting within the African Diasporic, Ceremonial Magick, and Jewish Mystical traditions. Join us as Professor Porterfield, considered to be one of the finest magical lamp makers of the day, teaches us the ins and outs of not only how to create and sanctify lamps within the hoodoo and conjure tradition, but also how to use and care for an oil lamp prepared for spellwork. Come and learn the secret of “the hen on her eggs” and how the humble oil lamp continues to be an enduring token of humanity’s desire to conquer darkness, bring about manifestation, and the Philosophy of Fire.
