Class: The Art of the Crane Bag—A Tool of Witcherie Michael McMahon

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

Join us May 8th, 2016 ev after our regular celebration of Liber XV: The Gnostic Mass

In this workshop we will explore the art of creating and using a witch’s Crane Bag for magical sortition or “casting of stones”. Cleromancy, or casting of lots—a form of divination where the outcome is determined by random means such as the rolling of dice, casting of animal bones or stones—is most commonly used in the practice of I-Ching, Runes, and Geomancy. However, the art of casting by means of a Crane Bag is an often overlooked practice of European cunning-folk recensions dating back to the renaissance. In this workshop we will discuss the general philosophy, how to create & how to effectively use this dynamic tool; not to mention how easily this method of divination can inform and add deeper insights into one’s already existing practice. It is often said that the intimacy and immediacy of results received through the stones is remarkably concise and playfully honest.

Love is the law, love under will.
