Just die.

Just die.

Facing the abyss.   Nothingness.   All of your life’s works become … merely a memory; and now that active memory is dead. You are now GONE.   The books which extolled your greatness rotted, the monuments eroded, the statues buried in sand.  The very language used to describe your greatness now forgotten by whole societies.   The...

More than Persephone’s Mom by Mary Malinski Priestess of Demeter

More than Persephone’s Mom by Mary Malinski Priestess of Demeter

Demeter and Persephone. Demeter and Kore. You can’t have one without the other, can you? The two are forever entwined in the Mysteries and mythology. Their identities are so thoroughly intertwined that Demeter loses her mind with grief when Kore is abducted. She is no longer herself when she blights the Earth – her identity vanished along with the...

Spring Mysteries Festival: The Oath of the Eleusinian Mysteries

Spring Mysteries Festival: The Oath of the Eleusinian Mysteries

For the history of the Eleusinian Mysteries, the oath is one of the most prevalent topics when discussing the Mysteries. The main reason for this is because without the oath, we would know exactly what was done in each part of the Sacred Rites. As it stand we know a fair bit about what happened in the Lesser Mysteries, but not so much as to what happened in the...

Many would be scholars shouting anonymously from the pages of the...

A Moment of Dissociation by Mary Malinski, Priestess of Demeter

The other evening my husband grabbed some Pom juice out of the refrigerator, and with a huge grin asked, “Care to join me in a toast to your daughter?” I looked at him confused for a moment. We have three sons. I don’t have any daughters. Then Demeter spoke up in my mind, directing her comment to my husband. “F@$% you. That’s not...

Mysteries Within the Mysteries by Mary Malinski, Priestess of Demeter

Mysteries Within the Mysteries by Mary Malinski, Priestess of Demeter

This is my third year having the honor of being a Priestess of the Mysteries. Each year has brought its own challenges and blessings. Each year has helped me to grow as a priestess and as a person. I have resonated with Demeter my whole life. She’s the Great Mother, and that archetype has been prominent for me for as long as I can remember. In the past I...

A journey 9 years in the making by Elizabeth Davis, Priestess of Athena

A journey 9 years in the making by Elizabeth Davis, Priestess of Athena

This journey began at my first SMF 9 years ago – at least I think it was nine! I dedicated to Athena as I was beginning a journey back into the world of knowledge, because that was the aspect I knew her as the best. Over the next many SMFs I rededicated to her most years. The times I thought I needed to dedicate to other Gods or Goddesses I was declined,...
