Welcome to The Mystic Cup! The search for the spirit world is as old as mankind, and so is the individuality of that experience. The Mystic Cup is about the expression and sharing of that individual search. We are all interconnected, whichever spiritual path we select, it is about the discovery and sharing of what is learned along the way.
The Mystic Cup wants to follow your journey of spiritual discovery, to learn and celebrate as a community. While we recognize that there are many roads leading to spiritual enlightment, The Mystic Cup is particularly interested in tracking the journeys of those who practice shamanistic religions, Native-American and Afro-Caribbean religions and practices (such as Orisha, Ifá, Palo Mayombe, Vodoo, Obea, Umbanda, Candomble, Kimbanda, 21 Divisions, Hoodoo), Ceremonial Magick, Wicca, Chaos Magic, Neo-Pagan religions and Spiritism amongst others.
However, if your journey has taken you through paths that could enrich the experience of those who compare notes on this Blog, feel free to send an special interest article submission for posting. After all, knowledge is shared and we are but pieces of gigantic puzzle filled with beauty and richness.
The core team of The Mystic Cup is composed by Omimelli (Orisha Priestess, Yaya Nkisi, Spiritist and student of ATRs at large), Kit (Spiritist in training, keen on Sigil Magic, Hoodooist, and a hell of a good magical cook), SonOfOgun (Balogun and Osainista in training and site administrator), Kal (Orisha Priest, Tata Nkisi, Spiritist and Magick practitioner), and Janus (Spiritist in training, student of ATRs particularly keen on Voodoo).
Special contributors: Dod Grile, Guinea Jacmel and Ogbe Ate.
