A Curious Invitation present London Month of the Dead
An Introductory Workshop to Scrying with an Emphasis on Water Divination with Lucya Starza at the Dissenters' Chapel on Saturday the 23rd October at 3:30 pm

Scrying is the practice of looking into crystal balls, mirrors, water, fire, clouds and other things to see visions, find messages and gain knowledge. It can be done to obtain guidance, for inspiration, to discover the answers to questions, to look at distant places or other realms, or for fortune-telling and prophecy. It is a form of divination that taps into our psychic senses and powers of intuition.

Scrying has a long history. In ancient times the Cup of Jamshid was used by Persian kings for observing all of the seven layers of the universe. Nostradamus obtained his prophesies from staring into a bowl of water or a "magic mirror" to see the future while he was in a trance. The Mormon movement is founded on divinations obtained by Joseph Smith from miraculous reflections in seer stones.

In this workshop Lucya Starza will discuss the methods that help you cultivate the ‘second sight.’ You will learn about working with a crystal ball, a black mirror, a candle flame and you will be given a practical detailed workshop on how to perform water scrying.

Tickets £20 including a 20% donation toward a host of restoration projects at Kensal Green Cemetery. Please click here to purchase.
