Honoring the Great Mother Goddess Isis of Ten Thousand Names

"Divine Isis, Goddess of Ten Thousand Names, I invoke your Grace. The Gods above adore You, the Gods below do homage to You: You set the orb of heaven spinning above the poles, You give light to the sun, You govern the universe. At Your voice, the spirits of earth rejoice, the elements obey. At Your nod the winds blow, clouds drop wholesome rain upon the earth, seeds quicken, buds swell. Birds that fly through the air, beasts that prowl on the mountain, serpents that lurk in the dust, all these tremble in single awe of You. Come to our temple, oh Goddess: dwell in our shrine: make our hearth Your altar: our hearts Your home."

~ Invocation to the Goddess Isis by Olivia Robertson from "Dedication of a Shrine to Isis" in "Dea, Rites and Mysteries of the Goddess"

Message of Comfort and Support


The international membership of the Fellowship of Isis, devoted to Isis of Ten Thousand Names, the Great Mother Goddess, offer our love and support to the people of France.

According to the words of our beloved and late co-founder, Olivia Robertson: “We who believe in Deity can truly help with the survivors who have lost people they love. We can give comfort to those who have lost their earthly bodies and are confused in the Astral sphere.”

May Isis, patroness of the City of Paris, or par-Isi, bless all those who suffer, and bring comfort, strength and healing throughout their country.

Goddess World

The FOI Union Triad is pleased to announce "Goddess World" - based on a project that was near and dear to the hearts of FOI Co-Founders Olivia Robertson and Lawrence Durdin-Robertson. We hope members will enjoy participating, by sharing research on sacred wells, springs, rivers and streams, woods, mountains, groves, caves, all manner of sacred sites worldwide. Entries will be featured in each issue of Isian News.

Olivia and Lawrence used to include sections titled "Goddess World Wells" and "Goddess World Woods" in issues of Isian News. Kasey Conder inspired the continuance of these projects through his sponsoring of the Fukushima meditations and his organizing of the Ploiaphesia at Isis Oasis in March this year.
