Welcome to the Fellowship of Isis Central Blog! The Fellowship of Isis is an international organization dedicated to furthering awareness of the Goddess. Information presented here about the Fellowship of Isis (announcements, policies, liturgy and the branches of study in the FOI) is provided directly to us by FOI Co-Founder Olivia Robertson, Temple of Isis, Clonegal Castle, Ireland.
The Chicago Fellowship of Isis is hosting a public Midwinter Yule rite on Saturday, Dec. 20, 2014, at: Life Force Arts Center, 1609 W. Belmont Ave., Chicago, IL, 60657. Free Parking available – see below.
We will gather from 4:30 - 5 PM, & the service will begin promptly at 5 PM. Suggested donation - $10. None are turned away for lack of funds.
The liturgy will be “The Tree of Life”, Oracle of the Goddess Frigga. We celebrate Modranacht, The Night of the Mothers, from ancient times. Music, drumming, and discussion will follow, along with refreshments.
After the liturgy, there will be a brief discussion of an Ursa Major
stellar rite from the Greek Magical Papyri (handouts to take home),
reflect on the Celtic Midwinter spirits Cailleach, Holly King, Arthur,
Bear, Raven; why reindeer are connected with the Winter Solstice, and
conclude with a Norse prayer candlelight ceremony (handouts &
candles). Then there will be music, feasting, celebration, and
fellowship - Bring your musical instruments: flute, sistrum, guitar, and drum!
Please bring something to share for the Love Feast following the liturgy. Donations are welcome to help pay the rent!
