Book Highlight: Dea, Rites and Mysteries of the Goddess

Olivia Robertson writes in the introduction: "In rites and ceremonies, the Deities bestow food and drink, blessings and aid. These are for all. But the mysteries go further. These are for those who are ready for a greater development in true being. And such a development cannot be brought about by any ceremony: but a ceremony prepares the soul and personality for that which may come about. This can be in the flash of a second, as one foot is lifted to take a step, between two words. It comes as unexpectedly as death, as swiftly as love, and is as fruitful. The mysteries here presented in new form are among the most ancient known to the human race. Any of these may be used for initiation: for a change of state."

Dea, Rites and Mysteries of the Goddess is now available for purchase and may always be read in full along with all of the FOI Liturgy:
