Oberon Zell will be presenting 2020 Vision: The Awakening at 1:15 PM
Just about every sixty years since the Italian Renaissance of the 1480’s, there has occurred a cultural Renaissance in Western civilization. Each of these periods has seen a similar flowering of the arts, poetry, music, literature, drama, culture, sciences, spirituality, social movements, and “Utopian” communities. Those who come of age in their teens and twenties during one cycle become wise Elders/Wizards/Sages in their 70’s and 80’s next time around, tasked with mentoring of the next generation of young heroes—as in the stories. As happens every 60 years, this is a time of magick; a time for us to conceive and articulate a unified “2020 Vision” of the world we want to bring into manifestation.
Oberon Zell (“The Wizard OZ”) is a renowned Wizard and Elder in the worldwide magickal community. In 1967 he was the first to apply the term “Pagan” to the newly emerging Nature Religions of the 1960’s. Oberon founded the first legal Pagan church (Church of All Worlds— www.CAW.org), and through his publication of Green Egg magazine (1968-present), Oberon was instrumental in the coalescence of the modern Pagan movement. In 1970, he had a profound Vision of the Living Earth which he published as the earliest version of “The Gaea Thesis.”
In the 1980’s, Oberon and his life-mate, Morning Glory resurrected authentic living Unicorns, and led a diving expedition to New Guinea to solve the mystery of Mermaids. In 1990, MG coined the term “polyamory,” and launched another significant movement. (MG died of cancer on May 13, 2014.)
Oberon creates altar figurines and jewelry of Gods and Goddesses, mythical creatures, and magick symbols. He is the author of Grimoire for the Apprentice Wizard; Creating Circles & Ceremonies; The Wizard; The Witch; and other
books. He is also Headmaster of the online Grey School of Wizardry, which he founded in 2004 (www.GreySchool.com).
A world traveler to mystic sites, in 2018 Oberon spent three weeks in the Yucatan exploring Mayan ruins, and a month in Guatemala, presenting workshops on Quantum Consciousness and participating in Mayan ceremonies. In November he attended the Parliament of the World’s Religions in Toronto. He has appeared on numerous TV shows, and is the subject of a film documentary: The Wizard OZ (2017) https://vimeo.com/215849774
For the past year Oberon has been on Walkabout, traveling around the US and Guatemala talking about Wizardry, Quantum Magick, the Awakening, the coming 2020’s, and 50 years of modern Paganism: “Who are we? Where did we come from? Where are we going?” Bring your questions to ask the Wizard!
