Every year The Goddess House, together with the Temple of the Dark Moon, include the Rite of Her Sacred Fires in with the May Full Moon Gathering ritual.
The Rite of Her Sacred Fires is a unique international devotional celebration of the mysteries and magic of the Goddess Hekate. It was born out of the Hekate Her Sacred Fires anthology project and written by Sorita d’Este who offered it as an act of devotion for all who wished to participate in May 2010. The first year saw the Rite of Her Sacred Fires translated into numerous languages, with several thousand people from around the world participating by doing the ritual on the Full Moon that month. To read more about the Rite of Her Sacred Fires, please visit the Covenant of Hekate (where the above information has been sourced from).
If you would like to take part in this international rite, please meet us under the pines in the carpark to the Botanic Park (off Hackney Road) from 7:30pm on Wednesday, 15 May 2014. We will be moving into the park around 7:40pm to set up, with the rite to commence around 7:50pm.
All participants are asked to bring a red candle (sacred colour to Hekate) which will be lit from the central flame. Candles can be purchased on the night for $1.00 with all proceeds going to Fauna Rescue - any "loose change" donation to Fauna Rescue is always gratefully appreciated.
If you are not able to join us on the 15th, then copies of the Rite of Her Sacred Fires can be freely downloaded from the Covenant of Hekate web site. Please respect to requests of the Covenant when doing so.
