GSAPS Psychedelic Book Club (October 20) – The Witches’ Ointment: The Secret History of Psychedelic Magic

The Witches' Ointment is a book about entheogenic ointments that were said to enable witches to commune with local goddesses. Exploring the untold history of the witches’ ointment and medieval hallucinogen use, Hatsis reveals how the Church transformed folk drug practices, specifically entheogenic ones, into satanic experiences. The Church bastardized the ointments as trips to the Sabbat, which were clandestine meetings with Satan to learn magic and participate in demonic orgies. Join the GSAPS Psychedelic Book Club every third Friday of the month from 5pm-6:30pm Pacific Time to discuss our monthly reading.
