Moina Mathers: Mistress of Magic — Nov 1, 2022, Online
Moina Mathers: Mistress of Magic with Geraldine Beskin at The College of Psychic Studies, November 1, 2022, 7pm (UK), online and recorded for those registered.
“Many will recognise Moina Mathers from her association with The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. In this livestream talk, Geraldine Beskin reveals that this unsung hero should be recognised for much more... including her art, which is on show in the College's Creative Spirits art exhibition!
Moina Mathers was unusual in many ways – not least having a successful marriage to a ceremonial magician, and they are rarely easy to live with! Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers was one of the three founders of The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and Moina was initiated into it, ran it, constructed the rituals and maintained a life as an artist too.
A thoroughly European childhood and a courageous nature made Moina Mathers' bohemian lifestyle one that her friends envied. Her two main companions were the remarkable Annie Horniman and Florence Farr who both also feature in this talk. One was rich and one was famous, and both had interesting friends and were mentioned in biographies.
Moina Mathers has been slightly overlooked for the last several years and Geraldine is set to redress the balance with this, the most recent of her biographical talks on Magical Women. Join us for this enlightening livestream talk on the life and magic of Moina Mathers, whose artwork can be seen in the College's Creative Spirits art exhibition.”
