The Iseum Benedictus is dedicated to Isis, Hekate, and Aine, offering a spiritual home for Her sons and daughters. Within our Temple, we celebrate Her Mysteries, offering the rites of the Fellowship of Isis. We are currently offering this online, complete with our online seminary for training.
The Fellowship of Isis is dedicated to honoring the Goddess in Her many forms. It was founded at Clonegal Castle, Ireland at the Vernal Equinox of 1976. The founders were Olivia Robertson, her brother Lawrence and his wife, Pamela Durdin-Robertson.
The FOI is multi-religious, multi-racial, and multi-cultural. It is dedicated to honoring the religion of all the Goddesses and pantheons throughout the planet.
The Gods are also venerated within the FOI. All members retain their own faiths and beliefs and are encouraged to blend their own practices with those of the Fellowship’s own Liturgy. There are no vows to take, nor secrecy to keep. The only requirement before joining the FOI is agreement with the principles in the Manifesto. Membership in the Fellowship of Isis is free. Members may charge tuition for the training curriculum of their own centers: “Charges may be made for books and courses.” (Olivia Robertson, Nov. 2011).
Love/Compassion – Isis – to the Mother of All, may compassion be my guide. May She infuse as well as temper all that I do with love. May I see Her in All.
Beauty – I make a commitment to Áine, my Faerie Mother, to share the pleasure and joy of loving Goddess through my garden of herbs, my art, dance, and voice.
Truth/Wisdom – Hekate – my dedication in service to Goddess with my work with women. May Hekate be my guide. May She guide me in my voice for justice. As Her priestess I offer myself to this work.
In the name of the Goddess whose attributes are Love, Beauty and Truth, may all beings be blessed: the Sidhe and humans, animals, birds, reptiles, fishes, insects, trees, plants, this Earth and all the Elements.
