Link: New Book Out and Interview

Dr. Wendi Wilkerson has published a book about polytheism. From the synopsis:
Walking With The Gods is the result of Dr. Wilkerson’s 3-year long ethnographic survey of 120 contemporary Western polytheists that offers a startling, intimate and detailed view of this emerging religious practice and raises important theological questions about our culture’s assumptions regarding Deity, faith, religion, nature, and humanity’s relationship with each.

I found a possible Festival of Hera Teleia

So I found an article about Aset/Isis (You’re shocked, I’m sure!) and within it, the author spoke of Isis and Hera syncretism.

4 Peret/Parmuthi/March
11-Festival of Hera Teleia

The article also says that this is a festival of Isis, but that she’s assimilated with Hera, so I’m not sure if this is an Isis festival, a Hera Teleia Festival or an Isis-Hera Teleia festival.

It also mentioned a triad of Zeus, Hera and Athena being honored. Hera also has an epithet called Hera of the Great Throne.

Prayer to Aset

Prayer to Aset

Come to me, O Goddess of the Gods
You Who have the utmost power
Who reign over all things in the world,
You Who protect all the Gods
O Aset, listen to me benevolently.
