The Theurgy of Eros
Theurgy is the ritual process for communication with the Gods. Our Pagan ancestors used the power of Eros to ascend to Divinity, proceeding through initiatory stages of Purification, Illumination, and Divine Union. The process was outlined by Diotima, the Wise Woman in Plato's "Symposium," and further developed by the Neoplatonists. In this workshop I will describe the steps in the Ascent by Love from my recent book, "The Wisdom of Hypatia." We will do visualizations and contemplative exercises so you learn the technique and can apply it later, on your own or with a partner.
