Welcome to the Fellowship of Isis: Rediscovering the Love and Compassion of the Goddess! The FOI is an international society founded in 1976 by Olivia, Lawrence and Pamela Durdin-Robertson. Societies include: the College of Isis, Spirals of the Adepti & Alchemy, Druid Clan of Dana, Noble Order of Tara & the Muses Symposium. The purpose of this blog is for sharing general FOI information, website updates and announcements sent directly from the central FOI Foundation Center in Ireland.
"Those who identify with various Goddesses and Gods, who revere and love them,
will find integration of consciousness. For there is a Deity for every person,
whether humorous, grave, joyful, lively, strong or gentle. Not only is each
person represented by a Deity; the ideal lover is also present: for Isis has ten
thousand names, and Osiris ten thousand faces. Eros is seen as Love, yet
coloured by race, family, feature, according to the devotion of Psyche. And
Psyche appears to the Lover with the form and beauty that is for him alone. So
Deity is to be sought in meditation: loved in those we know: and discovered
through the Mysteries. This is the dark secret of the Underworld: this is the
enigma of the Labyrinth. It is a secret that is told by all teachers. It is a
spoken secret. Yet words may tell: a sphinx portray: yet only when the secret is
experienced is it known. An ear of barley is reaped in Silence."
Olivia Robertson, from the book "Dea, Rites and Mysteries of the Goddess."
