Magical Sigils and Symbols of the Underground Railroad
A Livestream Class with Witchdoctor Utu
Sunday, February 20 at 3:15 pm in The Mercury Atrium
The sacred and celebrated Underground Railroad (U.G.R.R.) was a historic clandestine movement, its entire purpose was to aid and abet freedom seekers escaping the slave system of the southern United States. The unique tapestry of the U.G.R.R. was a fraternity from top to bottom comprised of men and women who were white, black, rich, poor, Christian, Jew, African, Spiritualist, and free-thinking atheist uniting both Canada and the United States in the fight against human bondage. Within the U.G.R.R. supporters and those who escaped along its trails were as vast a spiritual formulary as the many facets of those who comprised it, and everything ranging from African animism to Christianity, European and Arabic occult mysteries to Native American and Spiritualist traditions being utilized by not only the freedom seeker but the abolitionist supporter, and in fact several combinations of the aforementioned were created into a mysterious cross-pollination of which some still exist to this day. Within the secret societies of the U.G.R.R. among both the freedom seeker and the abolitionist were a series of sigils, symbols, and sacred geometry used as codes, invocation, empowerment, strength, invisibility, and stealth to name a few. In this class, we will learn to use some of the sigils and symbols of U.G.R.R. as well as their origins and mysteries so that we can utilize them to enhance our own personal magic, community work, and activism as they were intended.
