Sva wiccan taeca∂: “As the witches teach...” In this visual journey, Max Dashu reweaves strands from the spiritual heritages of heathen Europe. She surveys the meaning of ethnic names for witches as wisewomen, seers, prophetesses, healers and diviners, and reveals women’s sacraments of spinning, weaving, incantation, herbcraft and divination. See the cultural basis for crystal balls, amulets, and witches’ wands—like the sei∂stafr of Norse seeresses. We look at veneration of the Norns, of the Weird Sisters, of Fates and fatas and and fairy godmothers. And we remember the Women Who Go by Night with the Goddess—with Diana, Holle, Perchta,
Abundia, Nicnevin, Abundia, or Andra Mari—and their shamanic flight to the witch mounts.

We'll have time for questions, discussion, and signings of the book Witches and Pagans: Women in European Folk Religion.
