2. The Thames-Isis ceremony at Richmond by the river - Sunday 3rd March (meeting at Richmond station at 1pm).
We are preparing to explore the mysteries and magic of the Goddess Isis in a series of rituals to be held by the banks
of river Thames in London. (Tamesis is an old name of river Thames, and supposedly means `Thames-Isis’).
Saturday 3rd March : Blessing of the Fleet Ceremony (Isidias Navigatum). Ritual outline (tbc): A statue of the Goddess will be carried to the water, where flowers-wreathed women may offer mirrors so that she may see her beauty. Priests will pour milk on the
sands from a pitcher shaped like Isis's breast, then sprinkle the statue with precious perfumes. As the final part of the ritual, a small replica boat will be filled with spices and sent (out to sea) as an offering to the Goddess Isis.
Meet at Richmond Rail/ Tube station by 1.00pm. We'll walk up to nearby grounds by the riverside for social & Isis
(Advanced info : Wednesday 17th July: Birthday of Isis (Night of the Cradle). and -Saturday 16th November: (Full moon) Quests of Isis: searching, mourning and the finding of Osiris. (This is the `Samhain equivalent. There may also be one on 31st May (Arc of Isis ritual related to the Roman Navigation ceremony). For some of these, we'll be actually hiring boats at Richmond, and go rowing on the river Thames...to make offerings in the river! )
