This website is created and maintained
as a Votive Offering to
Dionysos the Liberator
by Lysiodoros His Priest
Welcome to the Dionysion...

This site is dedicated to serving as a general resource for votaries of the God Dionysos and His Mysteries, and as a specific resource for the thriving Pacific Northwest Dionysiac community and for the Alexandrine Temple of the Hermetic Fellowship, located in Portland, Oregon, USA.

The following links will carry the vagabond Dionysiac to many sites — some of them maintained here at the Dionysion by Lysiodoros and the Hermetic Fellowship — of relevance, even if it is sometimes whimsical and perhaps even paradoxical relevance (it is Dionysos, don't forget), to the many aspects of the God.

but guess who I've been dancing with!

Welcome to Thiasos Dionysos, a community of Dionysos worshippers who have gathered to revive the ancient forms of worship for the god of wine and ecstasy. We have an informal email list, where we discuss our mutual relationships with Dionysos the Liberator. The founders of this group have long wished to start regional ritual groups in the offline world, and we are starting with putting up this site. Here you can find contacts with members in your area, you can become an active voice in discussing rituals and devotions, and eventually become a member of the Thiasos. We hope you enjoy the information and interaction here!”
