TOPIC WITH CHOICE OF SUBTOPIC:

Materia Magica are the tools used by our practitioners, priests and shamans. These can include, but are not limited to:

  • Talismans: an item, often hand-held or small, believed to have magical or protective properties, often very personal and can be secular. A “good luck charm”
  • Wands: a magical item used to “activate” the spirit world or power, or mark out a sacred space
  • Amulets: an item, often worn, believed to offer magical protection, often sacred in nature.
  • Cult images: an object of worship or veneration.
  • Apotropaic items: a “frightening” image believed to “scare” away illness-causing spirits
  • Votive Offering: a gift given the spirit world that is destroyed in some way to magically send it there- candles. the cow in the Hmong film.
  • Rattles and musical instruments: used to make rhythmic noise to assist in trancing or having an apotropaic use.
  • Plants: can be used to induce trance and other pharmacopeia, and may have a medicinal impact
