Lecture title: Curse Tablets: Getting Ahead the Old Fashioned Way
Come and discover how the ancient Greco-Roman world used small etched lead sheets to seek not only revenge and retribution, but also love and happiness. In addition to a discussion of the purpose, production, and use of curse tablets, this presentation will show participants how to make their own in case the need ever arises. Eitel August Wilhelm Adelbert Oskar Joachim Viktoria, Graf von Pappenheim, is a specialist in ancient evil manuscripts working in the service of the German Reich. Jim Kollenbroich has a PhD in History and works in the Graduate College of the University of Illinois at Chicago. Due to the space constraints at Owen and Engine, our Society may either have a maximum of 15 people for the parlor room or we may use the entire upstairs, but must purchase $1000 in food and drink as a group (this means a minimum of 40 attendees buying a full brunch and drink, around $25 before tip and tax). So, in order to plan for the event, we ask that you RSVP by emailing the professor at email@example.com to confirm that you will be attending the lecture. All RSVPs will be served on a first come, first serve basis. Should we reach 40 confirmed attendees, everyone will be welcome (and welcome to bring guests too). Otherwise, your name will go on our waiting list for one of 15 coveted slots in the parlor room and you'll be notified the week of the event! As always, neo-Victorian and Steampunk dress is strongly encouraged at all meetings of the Owen Society.
My humblest gratitude at your hasty response Lady Donna and Professor Mandragore. Lady Plushbottom and I look forward to seeing you then and there.
Thomas, greetings! Indeed there will be - on June 24, next Sunday, from noon to 3 pm. The mysterious Mr. M. will be speaking on Chaos Magick. If you wish to attend, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP.
A query: Will there be a fifth meeting of the Owen Society at the end of this month?
As a matter of fact, Professor Mandragore himself will be there as well as his associates Doctor Xavier Day and Master Graf von Pappenheim who are the visionaries and original founders of the Owen Society. I am the professors' head apprentice and I will be attending with the professor along with our companion and protege Miss Donna Bell. It is the Professor's intention to have a publication of the collected papers presented this year at the Owen society meetings available for sale at Teslacon and I for one am advocating that the professor and his co-founders of the Owen society be members speak as panelists as they are of course the leading authorities on matters of the Victorian Occult. Please stay tuned, as November approaches, we will provide more details. We are also on Facebook, and you can visit www.terramysterium.com for more details as well (The Owen Society is an Educational and Steampunk Off-shoot of the performance troupe Terra Mysterium)
Lady Plushbottom and I attended our first Owen Society meeting this past April 29th. We found it to be a splendid experience and we wish to express our gratitude and appreciation to all who facilitated. We were welcomed most cordially and made the acquaintance of many fine folk. Again, thank you.
The Fourth meeting of the Owen Society
Date: Sunday, April 29th from noon until 3pm.
Book of faces event page
Join us for the fourth meeting of the Owen Society where Tarot and Astrology luminary Janet Berres will present her paper entitled "The Influence of Women on all matters Spiritual and Esoteric during the Victorian Era." How did the women of the Victorian times influence metaphysics and spirituality in everyday life? Out of this time period came the Fox sisters, who were credited with creating the Spiritualist movement, Madame Blavatsky and Mary Baker Eddy, who both started new religions, and Moina Mathers and Florence Farr, who, at different times, both headed up the Golden Dawn, the premiere occult society of that era. Then there were Dion Fortune and Annie Besant, Dion who founded the Society of the Inner Light and Annie, a political activist, who created Mixed Masonry, Le Droit Humain, the first co-freemasonry lodge that admitted women. Pamela Colman Smith, and Lady Freida Harris were the artists and influences behind the Rider Waite Tarot and the Thoth Tarot, while Elsie Wheeler was a clairvoyant who helped Marc Edmund Jones create the Sabian symbols, used in astrology. Ida Craddock was a Victorian "sexual mystic" and women's rights advocate. Unlike today, in "modern" 21st century America where a war on women is occurring, back at the turn of the last century, women were speaking out and stepping up to the plate--bringing their unique gifts to the world-- and the world was (mostly) approving of it! Due to the space constraints at Owen and Engine, our Society may either have a maximum of 15 people for the parlor room or we may use the entire upstairs, but must purchase $1000 in food and drink as a group (this means a minimum of 40 attendees buying a full brunch and drink, around $25 before tip and tax).
