The Witches' Ointment: Demonizing the Entheogenic Sacred Feminine Saturday, August 13 at 2:00 PM
Free to Dues Current Members of Star Sapphire Lodge. $15 General Admission
Join us for a lecture by Tom Hatsis, the author of the book, "The Witches' Ointment: The Secret History of Psychedelic Magic" (Inner Traditions: Park Street Press). During medieval times certain wise-women and local magicians concocted psychoactive potions, ointments, and powders that were used for a variety of magical and religious reasons. One of these religious practices involved a certain kind of entheogenic flying ointment used for fertility goddess worship. Around the early 1400s some theologians debated how "witches" could fly to meet the devil at evil congregations called the Sabbat. A few of these theologians decided that these women weren't using these entheogenic ointments to experience ecstatic revelry in the presence of the Divine Feminine, but rather were worshiping Satan. In this landmark study of the long ignored history of psychedelic magic, Tom Hatsis will unravel the journey that entheogenic flying ointments took to become the demonized "witches' ointment" of popular imagination. Long before "reefer madness" hysteria, long before "The War on Drugs," long, long before Nancy Reagan's failed "Just say No" campaign, the witches' ointment was the original anti-drug propaganda tool of both religious and secular authorities. Dues current members of Star Sapphire Lodge: Free General admission: $15 Copies of “The Witches' Ointment” will be available for purchase. About our Speaker: Thomas Hatsis is a writer, educator, and historian with a master’s degree in history from Queens College. The host of the website arspsychedelic.com, he has presented his research at several U.S. universities, including Yale, and published articles in the psychedelics journal Psypress U.K. He lives in New York.
