An Introduction to
The Mysteries of Isis
The re-emergence of the Goddess is the most important spiritual development of our time. Women and men are rediscovering Her-- and their very real, very human need of a relationship with Her. Throughout the ages, She has been known by many names-- and one of the most potent of these is the name of Isis.
Introduction to the Mysteries of Isis is a six-month course (one meeting per month) designed to introduce you to the magical religion of Isis and to provide techniques to help you develop and deepen your relationship with this Great Goddess.
Monthly Temple meetings will include:
Teachings will focus on Isis in Her ancient Egyptian manifestations and as She was worshipped throughout the Graeco-Roman world. We will also see how Isis has continued to be recognized as an honored 'goddess' (if not Goddess) throughout the history of Western civilization. In addition, we'll explore a variety of rituals and other techniques for developing a personal relationship with Her. Many of these techniques are based on ancient Egyptian and Hellenistic magical/spiritual practices, but adapted for modern use. Others are new 'Isis-specific' versions of techniques with which you may already be familiar. The series of classes will culminate in an Initiatory Dedication to Isis for participants who desire to make that commitment.
- Presentations on the many aspects of the Goddess Isis and the history of Her worship
- Open discussions on selected aspects of the spiritual Journey
- Magical theory

Open to College-aged Women and Men
Minimum number of people for the class is six; maximum is 12.
Cost is $5 per month.
First Meeting: Date and Location To Be Announced.
