Renaissance magic taught of the interconnected nature of life. Beyond mere superstition, magic was the pursuit of the magi, the sage, in search of wisdom. An expression of wisdom in the manifested world is health, to know what is best for us and to avoid excesses.

This talk will explore the wisdom of Renaissance magic through the story and example of one figure, Paracelsus, who helps us to understand the power of healing. The objective is not to abandon modern medicine but to compliment it with a deeper understanding of the human being and the universe.
