“Terrible one, lady of the rain-storm, conqueror of hearts, swallower of them…Lady of the temple, slaughterer of the fiends in the night…the unknown goddess with the back-turned face, overthrower of those who draw nigh unto her flame.” — From the Egyptian Book of The Dead
As one of the most ancient goddesses, the adoration of Isis goes back over 5,000 years and extends across the globe, even out here to sunny Los Angeles. Isis is known to be the source of all life, the goddess of magic, and as such she is the ultimate creatress, ruling motherhood, women and the arts as a protective deity. But Isis also has a more sinister incarnation as Nepthys, her sister/twin, destroying goddess of the underworld. In this workshop we’ll look at how Isis in all her forms challenges us to overturn authoritarian power structures, cast off our shame and self-doubt, and rise up in fierceness as wrathful deities of daring. Join me, Amanda Yates Garcia, Oracle of Los Angeles, as we use mysteries drawn from tarot, astrology, shamanism and other occult arts to forge a permanent connection with our Lady in Black. The workshop will conclude with an invocation ritual you can utilize in your daily practice. In the name of Isis, we cast off our self-doubt, by the powers of Isis, we know no shame!
