Happy 35th Anniversary Fellowship of Isis!

Foundation Center - Clonegal Castle

The Fellowship of Isis was founded by Olivia Robertson, Lawrence and Pamela Durdin-Robertson on the Vernal Equinox of 1976.

Click here to listen to Olivia speaking of the Vocation that led her to this work:  Emphasizing the Divine Feminine

Audio transcript:  "It was direct spiritual experience, as with my brother, that I had a direct spiritual Vocation to do this from God - the feminine aspect of God - God who is also feminine to emphasize this, because the world is threatened by destruction, through pollution, through misuse of nature - often through stupidity and greed.  We're destroying the planet.  And the Divine Plan appears to be to emphasize the feminine: charity, kindness, care for nature, nurturing, motherhood - all that side.  Not to get rid of the male aspect, but to balance male aggression and materialism and this linear-logical, mental thought:  always analysis, analysis - we're more for healing and synthesis."

Please also enjoy this audio clip of Lawrence, enacting the ritual of:  "The Athenaea"

Audio transcript: "We are here assembled to celebrate the ancient Athenian Festival of the Panathenaea. The singer Orpheus instituted the Athenaea in honour of Pallas Athena, Goddess of Power, Wisdom and the Arts. At this time of the Vernal Equinox of equal days and nights, when the sun leaves the sign of the tied fishes for the ram, Athenians and foreign visitors formed a joyful procession. They climbed the hill of the Acropolis and brought to the Parthenon the Peplum of Athena."
