Just a little tidbit for tomorrow night's ritual! Every Isian coven is very different. My own practice follows a very traditional, ceremonial opening ritual. It is a very beautiful, centering moment. I am also very reconstructionist in many ways. What follows resembles traditional ancient Egyptian temple worship from the Late Kingdom period moving toward the Isis Cult of the Roman Empire. I so look forward to sharing the experience of Isis, the Mighty Queen of Heaven and the Mother of the World, with everyone.

I am thinking that one of the best ways to introduce traditional craft is through the process of open court rituals in the various traditions and lineages that i am able to pass. later i am going to invite other elders to speak of their traditions and do open court circles/rituals. this way everyone can have an exposure to the various traditions.

Isian Tradition began through a relationship between a woman named Margo Dana who was a Traditional Witch and a man whom Isians refer to publically as the Ceremonial Magician who was a member of a lineaged Heremetic Order of the Golden Dawn lodge. Together they founded a coven called the Star of the Golden Cross. The practices of direct witchcraft or of a religious nature tend to be more up to the individual Isian and coven. There is tremendous variety within the Tradition itself. The best way to approach Isis is to remember that She is First and Foremost the Mighty Queen of the Heavens. She is the Great Mother, She With Infinite Names, Sorcerous, Witch Queen, Receiver of All Peoples. It is best NOT to make a direct petition to Her but to thank Her for Presence, Her attention, and Her love. By doing so, we acknowledge that She can read our hearts and knows how to bring about what we need. She is Goddess to Whom I was sealed and sworn when I became an elder, Re being the God.

I like red candles being a fire sign myself. I'm so looking forward to this circle. I've always loved the Egyptian culture. I'm anxious to learn more about this tradition. Can't wait. I've never participated in a group ritual, so I have no idea what to expect. I might bring a friend if that's ok. So, am I correct in assuming this tradition focuses more on the Craft than on Wicca as a religion?
