I have been meaning to put all of my Hellenic shopping links in one central place to make it easy for me to access (at least until I organize all of my internet favorites). It's especially handy with the holidays coming up.

Anyway, the list isn't super-pretty (it's more for me than anyone), but if you like to buy Ancient Greek themed statuary and other items, here is the current list of links that I use. I'll probably add updates to this as I find more:

This is mostly for my own notation for possible future rituals with my eranos/proto-demos (not all of the festivals of course!), but you are of course welcome to read it as well.

Speaking of classes I am about to take, I really need to retake the Hellenion BAE (Basic Adult education) course. I tried to do it last year, but life got in the way. Anyway, some of you might be interested, so I thought I would post about it here. If you are not a member of Hellenion, but are interested, you will need to join Hellenion for $10.00 (annual membership dues) to be eligible for the class. Still, I think $10.00 is a good deal for just the class alone.


Hellenion's Basic Adult Education class to start 14 Oct. 2006

If you have ever been fascinated with the mythology of the ancient
Greek gods, you should consider taking the Basic Adult Education class
offered by Hellenion. The next class will begin on 14 Oct. 2006, and
we are accepting new members and getting them registered into the
class right now.

The class is designed to provide an introduction to Hellenic
Reconstructionism for our members. It covers five areas: (1) history;
(2) mythology; (3) ritual; (4) Hellenion as an organization; (5) the
modern pagan community.

Currently, the class is being offered online via a discussion group.
Lessons are e-mailed to students to read, and responses are posted to
the online group. Discussion is also encouraged. The class is
facilitated by a Hellenion member who is an experienced college professor.

The class is free, but in order to participate, one must be a current
member of Hellenion. For more information about this international
pagan organization, please see our website: www.hellenion.org. A direct
link to a member application is here: http://hellenion.org/Join.html.

If you would like to write to the instructor of the class, you may do
so using this e-mail address: Hellenion_Study-owner@yahoogroups.com

Apologies for the cross-posting!


Southeastern Hellenes, a southeastern based Hellenic networking organization, cordially
invites you to attend one of our monthly meetups in the Atlanta-area.

These meetups function for not only a place for a meet-and-greet, but also for discussion
on a range of topics, often specific to Hellenismos (Ancient Greek religion), but
not always.

You do NOT have to be a Hellenic Polytheist to attend the meetups, in fact we welcome
anyone who may either have questions about the religion or is curious about us to
come as well.

The next date for meetup is:
September 12th, 2006

Until further notice, we will be holding them on the second Tuesday of every month
at 8:00 PM in the cafe of the East Cobb Borders bookstore.

Here is the store's website:

And here is the store's address:
The Avenue East Cobb
Building C, Suite 700
Marietta, GA 30062
Phone: 770.565.0947
Fax: 770.565.0948

The store is open until 11:00 PM, so we can stay at least as long as that. :)

We look forward to seeing anyone who is able to make it out!

My good friend [livejournal.com profile] sannion recently wrote a very good article about Hellenismos and getting started with it as a religious practice (be it for recons, Wiccans, etc). I found it to be a really great article and wanted to share it here.

I hope that you guys enjoy it. Also, feel free to share/post it around the community (with his credit, of course). :)

as promised to Her -- a publically posted poem to Her, by me:

For Hera

Oh Hera, beautiful Queen of the Gods,
You have showed me Your kindness and beauty
And the passion You hold in your breast.
I now understand the actions that You took,
Your works to protect your marriage bed.

Hera Gamelia, You have been portrayed in ill-light
And I hope to instead make that light more bright and true.
Let us sit together under the willow tree
And string peacock feathers in our locks
For as I know You more, I can tell Your tale.

Oh Hera, thank you for your presence
Your continued assistance
And your unexpected affection.
Let us sit together and let me hear Your words,
For when I know You more, I will tell Your tale.
