ConVocation 2021


Finding Our Balance

Welcome to ConVocation!
February 18th - 21st 2021 

ConVocation is a convention of the many mystical spiritual paths and faiths and the people that follow them who desire to teach each other and promote fellowship among all esoteric traditions. Since 1995, this 4-day event has brought together over 100 classes and rituals presented by local instructors, internationally renowned guest speakers and authors. Along with workshops, ConVocation offers over 35 tables of merchandise in our Merchant Room, an Art Show and the largest indoor Drum Circle in the Midwest.

  • Statement from the MEC board:

    After further reflection upon our previous statement we (the MEC board) have realized that we were not sufficiently clear on where MEC stands. MEC can not and will not tolerate racism of any kind, explicit or implicit. We stand with and support the fight to end injustice and systemic racism.

    In the recent statement MEC posted, we focused on the actions MEC has committed to in continuing to educate and better ourselves and our community.  We hear and acknowledge that in making that our focus we buried and undervalued the trauma and the severity of the issues faced by people of color and the importance of Black Lives Matter and related movements.  This was not our intention. We Apologize.

    The violence, bigotry and disenfranchisement that people of color have to face and have been facing for centuries cannot be allowed to continue.  MEC will continue to strive to meet the goal of eradication of these plagues on our society and in our communities.

    Hatred and intolerance have no shelter within our community or at our events and therefore must be actively uprooted. Racists and bigots of all stripes can stay home, they will not be welcome among us.

  • Statement from the MEC board:
    MEC was founded with the goal of making a safe and inclusive community for all as laid out in our mission statement right from the very beginning:

    The Magical Educational Council was established for the following purpose: to create community by promoting the sharing of knowledge,experience, and fellowship among people who follow mystical and esoteric traditions.

    In order to promote community, we do not include those paths or traditions whose doctrines advocate bigotry and / or violence against others on any basis including but not limited to race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or religion

    It is in the core of what MEC is and what we want to provide the community to stand against racism not only at our event, but in our community and in the world. To this end we had planned on using our Spring Town Hall to start an initiative of creating a community wide Diversity Board, however our plans were cut short by the pandemic that has threatened the health and taken the lives of so many.

    This has not stopped our plans, but has delayed them. We are committed to continue to have ConVocation be a place for everyone in our community to feel safe, welcome, included and represented. When we can confirm that it will be lawful and safe to host a Town Hall (hopefully in October) we will be making announcements to invite those who want to help us improve ConVocation and all other events, groups and organizations be as representatively diverse as our community truly is.

    In the meantime, know that we understand that we CANNOT understand what people of color have experienced in their lives, but we support you, we are listening to you and we are here for you.

    Justice for only some is no justice at all. Black Lives Matter

  • Cancellation of Pagan Picnic

    It is with much sadness that we are announcing the cancellation of Pagan Picnic on June 27th, 2020. This decision was not easy to come to, but we, MEC, feel it is necessary for the safety of our community. Initially, when we first started planning Pagan Picnic, we had hoped that everything happening in the world would be behind us, but as time went on, we realized that we could not continue as planned. We hope to see everyone in October at Beyond the Veil

    Stay safe everyone!

    MEC
