View Event Calendar time: Mon Jul 23, 2018 12:48 am Date: 18 Oct 2017 Event Name: "Circle with the Divine Feminine" with Rev. Joy Reichard Start Time: 7:00pm End Time: 9:00pm Description Hecate, Queen of the Witches or Wise Crone?
Triple-faced Hecate is one of the most ancient images of pre-Hellenic mythology. Her nature and roles have shifted greatly and sometimes have seemed contradictory. She has been worshipped as the Great Mother, as well as the Crone. She has been linked to the moon, is guardian of the crossroad and is said to preside over magic, ritual, prophetic vision, childbirth, death, the underworld, and the secrets of regeneration.
In this class you will learn about Hecate's geographical and historical origins. Even though Hecate has ties to the ancient Mother Goddess you will come to understand how over time she became allied with the archetype of the crone, was relegated of the underworld and came to be associated with death and witch craft. You will also learn how her connection to the underworld also links her to the psychological realm of the subconscious and to transformation and change. Hecate can be a helpful guide when you must journey into the depths of your subconscious to reflect and re-evaluate your life. Her transformative powers can help you release what no longer serves you so you can make room for new opportunities and growth.
Hecate reminds us of the value of the crone, the wise elder who offers wisdom and insight. She provides a powerful model to emulate for those of us who have reached their crone hood. Many of us have had our years of struggle and pain. We have come by our wrinkles and grey hair honestly. Rather than disparaging the signs of aging, we should honor our crone years and celebrate this auspicious phase of our lives.
During the guided visualization you will have an opportunity to Join Hecate and a group of her devotees around a bubbling cauldron on a moonlit night. You will be invited to join them in releasing what no longer serves you, so you can call in new energies for personal growth and expansion. The ritual is an extension of this visualization as you cycle through three altars to discard the old, call upon Hecate for guidance, and breathe life into new ideas and goals. Join us on October 18th for Hecate, Queen of Witches or Wise Crone?
