ISIS FEST 2011
About the Fellowship of Isis Utah
The Fellowship of Isis Utah - Lyceum of Isis of Utah offers public rituals, roundtable discussions, course coorespondence at times based on a modernized calendar relating to ancient festivals and mysteries surrounding the Goddess Isis.
The Fellowship of Isis Utah is one branch that is very much a part of the International Fellowship of Isis.
Founded in 2008, by Kasey Conder & Alexius Gallegos, the FOIUT has grown and offered to the community public communion and ritual with Isis and bases much of its teachings from deTraci Regula, Normandi Ellis, Lady Olivia Robertson, and an assortment of Isian traditions composed within the Fellowship of Isis. For information on the Fellowship of Isis Manifesto please see: FOI Manifesto
The Fellowship of Isis Utah is also known as the Temple of Isis Utah. Lady Loreon Vigne chartered the Temple of Isis Utah branch from the legal non profit in Geyserville, California at Isis Oasis Sanctuary, the Temple of Isis. The Temple of Isis Utah is also a 501c3 in Utah founded by Kasey Conder, Alexius Gallegos and Nathan Neville. The Temple of Isis Utah and Fellowship of Isis Utah, respectfully, have hosted many public rituals and workshops over the years.
Isis is seen as our great friend, sister, mother, and redeemer. We commune with her to gain a greater understanding of the mysteries of life and death and create balance and improvement within ourselves, our community, the planet, and with that essence of all that is. We do not practice dogma, we practice "catma", as coined by the Rt. Rev. Loreon Vigne. We revere the 42 Ideals of Ma'at (TOI 42 Ideals of Ma'at) but of course not as a dogma but as a guide. We also very much so revere the translation of "Awakening Osiris: The Egyptian Book of the Dead" by Normandi Ellis. We also honor the God Osiris and Horus the Falcon Headed God of the Sun.
Our greater advancement is aided by Isis. We do not practice blind faith or worship. Isis does not require this, nor does she want this. We practice the rituals surrounding her traditions to unravel the mysterty that lies within her as well as ourselves. We very much have an Egyptian base to our rites but we also see that the Goddess has manifested herself through many cultures and many times so we do deviate to honor Isis of 10,000 Names.
We devote ourselves to her mysteries. She offers her blessings. We love and adore her.
