Vestal Flame: Updated Announcement
Review of Venue for FOI Events & Gatherings
 
Received October 12, 2010

Every Goddess Centre relates to others through the Rainbow Network of Love, Beauty and Truth. So there is no need for great Temples and Halls in these challenging times. Where there is a Hearth, there presides the Goddess of our Eternal Home.

The Original Announcement:
 
Fellowship of Isis Convention 2011
Reviews of Venue
Iseum of Eleusis, Hearth of the Goddess
Received September 24, 2010


It is now the intention of so many iseum founders to hold their gatherings in their own homes.

Olivia Robertson notes that the original intention of Lawrence, Pamela, and herself was to return the Hearth Fire of the Goddess to the home.  Under patriarchy, their followers were forced to build churches and halls at great expense to keep priestesses from power. 
 
Now the financial climate makes a return to the Hearth for ceremonies appropriate. Many conventions already do this, including those held in Clonegal Castle.
 
Founders of FOI centers who would like to join this return to the Hearth Fire may list their participation under the heading of The Vestal Flame.

 

Signed,
 
Olivia Robertson
Iseum of Eleusis of Chicago


Note: Iseum of Eleusis is the FOI centre of Deena Butta, Chicago, Illinois, USA. Deena is Olivia's hostess in Chicago and is the facilitator of the FOI Goddess Festivals in the Chicago area each year.

Fellowship of Isis Muses Symposium
 
October 12, 2010
 
The Muses Symposium is not affiliated with any of the FOI Foundation Unions, ArchDruid Union, ArchPriesthood Union or the Grand Commander Union. It has no affiliation with the Druid Clan of Dana or the Noble Order of Tara or any other branch or society within the Fellowship of Isis.
 
Becoming part of the Muses Symposium does not involve new Priesthood nor does it confer titles of Priest or Priestess to anyone. New members are honoured as Sons and Daughters of the Muses, i.e. "Daughter of Terpsichore" or "Son of Urania."  Those who are already ordained as members of the Priesthood are acknowledged as "Priestess" or "Priest" in their work for the Muses. Example: our Priestess Le'ema Kathleen Graham already ordained as a Priestess in the Fellowship of Isis, therefore she is declared Priestess of Terpsichore in the Muses Symposium because Le'ema is both Priestess and sacred dancer - her work honors the Muse Terpsichore. Our Priestess Sundari, already ordained as a Priestess is therefore Priestess of Polyhymnia, dedicated to the Muse of Song in the Muses Symposium.

This oracle from Urania was received by FOI Co-Founder Olivia Robertson as she sought to bring clarity to members concerning the Muses Symposium and the Magical Arcadian Realm.
 
 
From: Urania, Muse of All Magic
Received October 18, 2010
 
Oracle
 
Our Muses Symposium exists already in the inner planes. We are now extending it to the material world, through the Fellowship of ISIS.Therefore, our Magical Arcadian Realm is not subject to any existing structures. It is a telepathic extension of our divine web of the arts. So, in the Muses Symposium, there are no levels, degrees or rules.
 
THE GODDESS GUIDES, NOT COMMANDS.
 
We Muses inspire that perfect freedom of expression, without which, the Arts cannot exist. Be Free, Be Joyful, Be Loving and So Create Your Individual Art, through the Divine Rainbow Network of All Arts.
 
Olivia
 
Note: Any  F.O.I. Member who wishes to join, may do so through the existing global web sites. They are preparing the necessary navigation on these sites, now.

Extension of Publication Rights to Works by Olivia Robertson and Isian News
 
Received October 12, 2010
 
 
Notice from Olivia Robertson. For a long time I have wished to hand over the publication of my books from my own amateur efforts (a lot of work!) to other members. Minette Quick sees to my publications in Ireland. Now I am very happy to announce that I am giving the right to publish all my books and pictures to Isis-House Publishing of ArchPriestess deTraci Regula.
 
Of course Connia Silver’s manuals, booklet of my pictures and her DVD recordings of the ritual tapes will continue to be on sale through her. As will the much appreciated DVDs and other works of Cathryn Anne Rogers, also the Archives and Directories of Deena Hartray Butta and the arrangements with Caroline Wise for publication of the liturgy and my other works and past arrangements with Linda Iles, Loreon Vigne and deTraci Regula for publication of the liturgy and my other works. Past issues of Isian News produced by Caroline Wise and Connia Silver can be ordered. And now the rights of course belong to the Most Rev. Linda Iles, the present publisher of Isian News. My family still have the right to publish and to sell my work from Clonegal Castle.
