From the secret practitioners of the Cascadia Illuminati - the first to our knowledge of our Cascadia secret societies :), it's nearly time for the next Cascadia Illuminati August meetup! From their event page here:
"Greetings O noble seekers after Illumination.
The time has come for our August meetup. As per usual we will gather at our customary feast hall, the back room at the College Inn Pub for another great gathering of Seattle's finest occult practitioners, esoteric students, pagans, magicians, and seekers after eldritch lore.
Our theme for this month is still to be determined. If anyone would like to do a presentation please don't hesitate to let us know. We look forward to seeing old friends and new faces."
The purpose of the Cascadian Illuminati is two-fold.
First and foremost, we seek to create a broader sense of community among people of various Esoteric groups and traditions. Inspired by the sense of camaraderie, fellowship and goodwill seen at the Esoteric Book Conference in Seattle, the Cascadian Illuminati seeks to encourage cross-pollination of ideas, forming of friendships and fellowship among esotericists and occultists of all stripes and affiliations.
The secondary purpose of the Cascadian Illuminati is specifically to discuss and share ideas on how to use magick and personal insight to improve the world around us, without creating a specific dogma as to what form such improvement should take. It is to encourage a broader participation in the world as incarnate beings of purpose and will.
