ISIS MAGIC: Cultivating a Relationship with the Goddess of 10,000 Names
The House of Isis is open to you. It always has been. Come. Greet the Goddess of Ten Thousand Names, Isis, the Goddess of Sacred Magic. As you enter Her House—Her Temple—you will come to know this most magical, powerful, and loving of Goddesses. Discover the many faces of Isis, from ancient Bird of Prey Goddess to Queen of the Mysteries to Savior. Then begin your own initiatory journey to Isis as you become Her Votary, Her Handmaiden or Servant, Her Magician, and Her Prophetess or Prophet. At each stage of your deepening relationship with the Goddess you can participate in exercises, meditations, and powerful rituals that will open your heart, aid in your personal and spiritual growth, and increase your skills in sacred magic.
Isis Magic is complete, well researched, and deeply experiential. It is the perfect resource to aid the individual seeker, to inspire a circle or coven or Iseum, or to serve as a program of personal development for those called by Isis to be Her priestesses and priests.
“I am thrilled that this pivotal book is being reissued. The first edition has had a valued place on my bookshelf (the one right beside the altar!).”
—Normandi Ellis, author of Awakening Osiris, Invoking the Scribes of Ancient Egypt, and Going West
“...That is the inner secret of this glorious book. It is not merely Isis of the past; it is Isis for today, Isis for tomorrow, Isis forever. It presents an entire system of practice bringing Isis religion and magick into the 21st century.”
—Donald Michael Kraig, author of Modern Magick and Modern Sex Magick
About the Author
M. Isidora Forrest has been devoted to Isis ever since the Goddess told her, in no uncertain terms, that she was not yet ready to be Her priestess. (Isidora respects a Goddess Who doesn’t coddle.) More than twenty years—and a lot of research, ritual, agony and ecstasy—later, Isidora has earned the title of Prophetess in the House of Isis. She is also a priestess of the international Fellowship of Isis, a Hermetic adept, a maenad for Dionysos, and a founder of the Hermetic Fellowship, a non-profit religious organization devoted to spiritual development through ritual and education in the Western Esoteric Tradition. In addition to Isis Magic, she is the author of Offering to Isis: Knowing the Goddess through Her Sacred Symbols, and a contributor to the Golden Dawn Journal series of books edited by Chic and Tabatha Cicero. Isidora lives and works in the not-at-all-Egypt-like climate of Portland, Oregon with her husband Adam Forrest, a fierce black cat name Korê, and both a Temple of Isis and a grape arbor sacred to Dionysos in the backyard.
