Symbol Selves: Sigil Magic Drawing Workshop
In this two hour,hands-on workshop, each participant will create and activate a set of symbols, bringing focus and attention to their own specific desires. For Small and Large Group Workshop inquiriesplease contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sigils have a long history of use in magical practices, originally thought of as pictorial symbols of demons, later sigils were reinvented as symbols created to manifest one’s desired outcomes. Surrealist artist Austin Osman Spare further developed the technique through combining multiple sigils in intricate pictorial representations called hypersigils.
As an artist/educator with an interest in magic, Rebecca Goyette has developed her practice of sigil drawing, as well as activating sigils in numerous ways including sex magic. Goyette will share her process, leading participants to design their own series of sigils, to activate their sigils in various ways including sex magic and to combine their symbols into a final hypersigil drawing. The group will explore how color, line work, composition and varied abstract and figurative styles unleash the subconscious mind and help give form to their greatest desires. In the past year, Rebecca Goyette encountered a number of traumatic situations, including the death of her father. Having caused pattern-breaking and growth within herself through her own practice of sigil magic drawing, she enjoys sharing this transformational activity with others.
