11:30 – 12:45 PM The Ritual Use of Scent: An Introduction

Scent has always played an important role in ritual. It has long been understood that scent can affect mood, anchor memories, and quickly create altered states of consciousness. We will start with a discussion the common varieties of incense and essential oils as well as their application in various rituals and spiritual practices known to students of western esotericism. We will finish with physical examination of some incense resins and blends.

Troy Spreeuw has been as student of western mysteries for more than 10 years and is an Aspirant to the Great Work. Workshop sponsored by Scholomance: Excellence in Applied Occultism.
