My essay ‘Swaying with the Serpent: A Study of the Serpent Girdled Hekate’ will feature in the new book, ‘Hekate Her Sacred Fires’ edited by Sorita d’Este (see http://www.facebook.com/hekatefires for more info). This book brings together the visions of around 50 devotees, mystics, priests and priestesses who share their experiences, often for the first time, in this volume through essays, prose and artwork.
To coincide with the release of ‘Hekate Her Sacred Fires’ we are inviting you to join us in a worldwide day of celebrating and honouring the Goddess Hekate on the Full Moon, Thursday 27th May 2010 and to participate with hundreds, maybe even thousands of others around the world in THE RITE OF HER SACRED FIRES.
All you need to join in the ceremony is yourself, an undisturbed space and a candle (or another devotional fire, such as a lamp or hearth fire, for example). The ceremony will be provided as a printable PDF, as well as in other multimedia formats from the 20th of May. It takes approx 5-6 minutes to complete and can be incorporated into a longer ceremony, or performed by itself. YOU CAN PARTICIPATE FROM WHEREVER IN THE WORLD YOU ARE – by yourself or with friends.
There are already groups and individuals who have committed to joining in from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Namibia, Chile, Mexico, Brasil, Argentina, U.S.A., Canada, Finland, Sweden, The Netherlands, France, England, Wales, Scotland, Cornwall, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Greece, Turkey and many more …
The ceremony will be made available in both English and Spanish. If you would like to translate it into another language, you will have the option to get in touch and help with that from the 20th onwards.
