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.
"'To find the Other is to find Oneself: All Nature is expressed in one loved
face.' "So says the Bard of the Druids in our Isis Wedding Rite. To unite with
another soul is the goal of the Lover: through this devotion selfishness and
loneliness fade away. When twin souls unite in Divine Union, it is through
discovery of The Immortal Beloved that they find their own real selves. Such is
the truth underlying the Egyptian myth of Isis and Osiris, perfect wife and
husband. In classical Greece Plato brought forth the ideal of twin souls divided
and discovering reunion through love. Centuries later medieval troubadours
travelled throughout Europe singing of fulfilment through the romantic devotion
of lovers. Within our secret dreams, we have this knowledge in ourselves."
The Isis Wedding Rite is now available in paperback and may also be read in full,
along with all of the FOI Liturgy:
