A Livestream Class with John Opsopaus

Sunday, March 5 at 1:45 pm in The Moon Garden

We often hear legends of ancient wisdom preserved on stone pillars or in ancient books, but do you know that we have instructions for several ancient Greek divination systems preserved on papyrus scrolls or stone tablets? These methods work by casting or drawing lots: either dice, knucklebones, or alphabet stones (like rune stones), and we are lucky to have the ancient keys for interpreting them (which I will provide as handouts). These divinatory arts, which I've practiced for decades, are practical and effective. (Several are described in my recent book, The Oracles of Apollo.) In this class you will learn:

  • How to use the Greek alphabet (like runes) for divination
  • How to use an ancient Greek dice oracle
  • How to use the Iliad and Odyssey for divination
  • The Sayings of the Seven Sages and how to use them for divination
  • Ancient divination rituals that can be used with any of these methods

This is your opportunity to learn how to divine by casting, as our ancient Pagan ancestors did it. It's easy if you have the key!
