Virtual Lecture: The History of Healing Charms with Becky McCoy

The History of Healing Charms with Becky McCoy

Healing charms have been a mainstay of nearly every culture in the world at some point in history, and yet, due to the nature of them requiring a certain amount of secrecy in order to be functional, they are frequently lost to the hands of time and modern life.

However, “charming” in the Ottawa Valley and surrounding area seems to have survived much longer than other places, and was a thriving practice until very recently. Together we will explore some of the beliefs surrounding the practice, its history, and how it came to be here.

Goulbourn Museum invites you to join us on Thursday, November 12 at 7:00 pm as local writer Becky McCoy shares her research on healing charms in the Ottawa Valley.

The lecture will take place over Zoom. Upon registering, participants will receive a confirmation email with a link to the event page on Eventbrite. You will access the Zoom meeting link through this page. Participants will receive a reminder email prior to the event.

Please note: You must sign into your Eventbrite account to access the event page with Zoom link. If you do not already have an Eventbrite account, simply sign up using the same email address you used to register for tickets.

The event will start promptly at 7:00 pm and will include a Question and Answer period following the lecture.
