Bullet The Stele
Homepage of The Omphalos, extraordinary website for Græco-Roman Neopaganism. “It currently has some information about publications, organizations and festivals, as well as links to some relevant files and to a number of relevant Web sites. The files include rituals, hymns and other texts useful to Hellenic Neopagans. The Stele will continue to evolve as more information becomes available.”

Bullet Hellenion
A US-based religious organization dedicated to the revival and practice of Hellenic polytheism. We approach Hellenic religion from the reconstructionist perspective, which includes both an emphasis on historical precedent and respect for personal spiritual inspiration. We offer local congregations, study opportunities, and fellowship for those who worship the Olympians and the other deities of ancient Greece in a traditional way..”

Bullet Ai Mystai
Ai Mystai is an organization devoted to the birth of modern Hellenic Mysteries, and their associated groups, rituals, and study. Hellenists have long lacked access to initiatory groups dedicated to bringing people into a mystical relationship with the Gods and providing personal gnosis. Ai Mystai aspires to remedy this situation.
Our plan is not to duplicate the unknown past, but to build a thriving mystical community upon the foundation of ancient and modern Hellenismos. We cherish the building blocks left for us by such schools and rites as the Eleusinian, Orphic, Dionysian, Mithraic, etc., while not claiming to be any of these ancient Mystery sects.
Our doors are open wide to those who seek deeper devotion to the Gods of Hellenismos and ancient Hellas. Although our Mysteries are Greek, personal beliefs and devotions of aspirants, students, and members may include non-Hellenic deities and beliefs according to the leading of each person's inner experience.”
Ai Mystai maintain a Yahoo! Group.

Bullet HMEPA; Hellenic Month Established Per Athens
Athenian calendar adapted for modern use, showing month dates through the 33rd century CE; that will do for my needs :-). “This calendar is the Athenian calendar, updated to be a calendar for the modern world. It follows the spirit of the ideal calendar, being lunisolar and based on the visibility of the crescent. But it compromises by using a calculation and by basing it on visibility not at Athens itself, but with adjustment so that the visibility somewhere in the populated world is the criterion.”
