Group Overview: About the Sanctuary of Hekate Soteira:
The Sanctuary of Hekate Soteira (Glastonbury) is a ritual group dedicated to the Goddess Hekate as Saviour, as she is seen in the Chaldean Oracles, but also throughout her long history. We honour her as the Cosmic World Soul, the Source of Virtues and the Initiatrix who teaches us about the Mysteries of Life, Death and Rebirth. We honour her as the three-fold goddess of Heaven Earth and Oceans, who guards and protects the liminal thresholds and allows us to shatter illusion. Hail Hekate Soteira!
It is a Sanctuary within the Covenant of Hekate (www.hekatecovenant.com) and lead by Priestess and Keybearer Sorita d'Este. You do not have to be a member of the Covenant of Hekate to participate in our ceremonies. Our sanctuary meets twice a year, at the Full Moon in May to coincide with the annual "Rite of Her Sacred Fires" and again during August (either during the Full Moon, or during the Perseid meteoric shower) for devotional and mystical celebration of the Goddess Hekate as Soteira primarily, but also to celebrate her as the Initiatrix into the mysteries.
The CoH help facilitate the Hekate Symposium, see www.theurgia.co.uk for more information.
We are not a "witchcraft" group or coven, nor are we seeking to recreate historic rituals. Our work and celebrations are rooted in the 21st century - the world we live in and which we are part of, though we do draw our inspiration from historical sources and the experience we have gained from exploring the Mysteries. We do not celebrate "The Wheel of the Year" or other Wiccan / Neopagan festivals and practices, we are entirely focussed on furthering our work with Hekate Soteira, and work exclusively with the Lunar and Solar cycles as they occur, and other stellar phenomena.
About Sorita d'Este:
Sorita d'Este started exploring mysticism as a child, which lead her on many pathways and spiral paths from which she has learned over the years. She is an experienced ceremonialist and the co-author of Hekate Liminal Rites, editor of both Hekate Keys to the Crossroads and Hekate Her Sacred Fires. You can find out more about her work at www.sorita.co.uk; and more specifically www.sacredfires.co.uk for details of The Rite of Her Sacred Fires which lead to the formation of the Covenant of Hekate.
