Group Overview: The Temple of Hekate: Ordo Sacra Strix (Sacred Order of the Owl) is a coven of the Ophic Strix Tradition, a Hellenic Witchcraft Mystery Tradition rooted in Classical Hellenic Polytheism and the Western Esoteric Mysteries.
The Serpent (Ophic) is a paramount sacred creature in many Traditions of both East and West. It is the sacred animal of Dionysus, along with the Bull. The serpent is the avatar of Apollo as well, representing Healing and Wisdom. Much more can be said, but what is of importance is our interest in the Serpent as representing the Agathos Daimon ("The Good Spirit") , the Divine Self of each person. It has always been the goal of the ancient Mysteries to assist mankind in their individual and collective spiritual evolution by passing on teachings that awaken and connect a person with their Divine Self. Such teachings exist in many esoteric orders.
Thus do we have the Ophic Strix Craft Tradition: a modern Witchcraft Tradition with ancient roots. We are kin to the Strega whom we taught the Mysteries of Orpheus, Samothrace and the sacred Journey to the Underworld (as evidenced by the Oracle of the Dead in Baia, Italy) . In turn they shared with us the secret dances of Benevento and preserved the Pythagorean Mysteries near Mt. Etna in Sicily. We are the Owls of Hekate, the Night Shamans who are guided by Her Torch. We are the clans that revere the Serpent, and are trained in the ways of the Underworld.
We are currently open to accepting applications for potential students for our Dedicant classes starting after the Winter Solstice. Please feel free to contact us if you feel this path calls to you.
