Deep Moon Mysteries

with Christopher Penczak

The ongoing Deep Moon Mysteries are being offered as in-person monthly classes at the Temple of Witchcraft in Salem, NH. Additional information will be added to this page as the classes unfold.

January – The First Sacrifice of Creation: Sacrifice means “to make sacred.” Indo-European cosmology often starts with the sacrifice of a divine being to start creation. The divine one is divided into many parts, and the cosmos is thus created from the parts. The first sacrifice is echoed in our all sacrificial myths, including the cosmic sacrifices of Ymir, Tiamat, and Ouranous, to the more terrestrial Osiris, Tammuz, Dionysus, to the more human tale of Cain’s brother Abel and the sacrificial king mythos. Seek a deeper understanding of divine sacrifice by exploring the cosmos through this myth.
