Hekate: Unveiling the Queen of the Dead
October 24 @ 7:00 pm$75
“Gorgo, Mormo, Moon of a thousand forms, cast a propitious eye on our sacrifice…” Shrouded in mystery and reigning as Queen of Phantoms and of the Dead, Hekate has both fascinated and frightened human beings for approximately 3,000 years. Linked to such characters as the raging Furies, the child-murdering Medea and the spiteful sorceress Circe, Hekate has also piqued the interest and imagination of such notable writers as William Shakespeare and Aleister Crowley—who both knew of her potent powers of magick and sovereignty over the realms of death and transformation
Join Hekatean Priestess Mulysa stysty for a sacred communion ritual with the Dark Goddess and discover more about this mighty Lady of the ancients: Queen of the Witches, Propylaia, Enodia, Cthonia, Trevia, Kleidouchous, Diana Lucifera and many more are Her names. Who is HEKATE and from whence does She originate? Who are Her priestesses and priests and what is their service to humanity? What are Her symbols and what messages does She have to impart to us and how? Do you dare approach the Lady at the Crossroads who holds the violet flamed torches and is flanked by the baying beasts of Hell? Are you confident enough to peek behind Her dark veil and see the many manifestations of this multi-faceted and controversial Goddess? Surely the face that stares back is not that of a sterile old crone.
