The Hekate Symposium 2014

“The Hekate Symposium is now in its third year, and this year we have decided to explore ‘different perspectives’ on the Goddess Hekate. Hekate is a Goddess like no other – she has been feared, hated and loved through the centuries. She evokes strong feelings and emotions, and the diverse experiences and ways in which she continues to be viewed provides a fascinating and beautiful window into Her mysteries.” [via]

Orryelle Defenestrate-Bascule Time, Fate and Spider Magic from Avalonia Books

“From Greek Chronos and Hindu MahaKala to the feminine mysteries of Fate — from the Moirae to the Hoerae — this mythic HirStory (a union of history and herstory) explores the far reaches of time & its warp in the Web of Wyrd.

Whereas Hawking’s Brief History of Time is a scientific apprehension of the subject, this tome follows Time’s spiralling course through art, verse and magic, bringing us to the eternal present then offering ways to carry the ideas presented into the future through personal application & practical ritual frameworks for using web mandalas to map time onto a spatial plane and explore different potentialities of our mutable destiny.

Included is the Arachnean Grimoire ‘The Book of the Spider’ and commentary.” [via]

Hekate Symposium Jun 1st 2013 at Glastonbury, UK

“Devotees, Priestesses, Priests and students of Her Mysteries from all around the country – and indeed the world – will gather for the second annual Hekate Symposium.”

“This is a unique one-day event which is entirely dedicated to the Goddess Hekate and her Mysteries, which will comprise scholarly presentations, ceremonies, meditations, pathworkings, chanting and ritual theatre throughout the day! Packed full of Hekatean delights from 10am – 10pm on Saturday, 1 June 2013. Facilitators and presenters this year include authors Sorita d’Este, Georgi Mishev, Emily Carding, Orryelle Defenestrate-Bascule, as well as Amelia Ounsted, Hazel, Sophia Kirke and numerous other Priestesses, Priests and Devotees giving their time, knowledge and talents to making this community event happen as an act of devotion.

This will be Georgi Mishev‘s first lecture in the UK, and those readers who enjoyed his work THRACIAN MAGIC will be particulary interested to know that he will be speaking on some of the material in the book, and leading a blessing ceremony in his native Bulgarian. Emily Carding (Cornwall) has – especially for this event – written a Ritual Drama, bringing together her knowledge and experience of working and studying Acting with that of her spiritual and ceremonial work to create something truly magical. The talks and lectures being given are all absolutely unique to this event. Many of the speakers at this years’ event are professionals and academics in their own fields, speaking exclusively at the Hekate Symposium about their work with the Goddess Hekate, driven by their passion for sharing knowledge and experience about Her Mysteries.” [via]
