An illustrated lecture with Maja D’Aoust
Date: Friday, March 16th
Presented by: Phantasmaphile
The mysteries of the fairy races have haunted our cultures since primitive times. Where do stories of “other folk” come from? Why does every race seem to have tales of humanoid creatures who steal human babies, interbreed with them and have supernatural powers? Join Maja, the White Witch, as we examine some of the meaning behind the stories of the fairy folk through Celtic, Jewish, and Vedic cultures. Look at fossil evidence showing parallels to the possibilities of different hominoid species, not quite human, that have been spoken of since time immemorial. One of the biggest symbols of St. Patrick’s day is the Leprechaun, which we all know about through this holiday or from the covers of cereal boxes. But what are the real origins of the images of these little people that will fill our eyes so much this time of year? Let’s delve into the Occult and hidden histories of these fascinating creatures.
Maja D’Aoust’s interest in alchemy and the esoteric sciences spans her lifetime. After completing her Bachelor’s Degree in Biochemistry, she studied Oriental Medicine and acupuncture and later earned her Master’s Degree in Transformational Psychology at the University of Philosophical Research with a focus on Shamanism, the I Ching, and ancestors in her thesis work. Maja co-wrote a book, The Secret Source, with Adam Parfrey, now in its second edition. She also co-hosts a weekly radio show, Expanding Mind, with Erik Davis on the Progressive Radio Network.
