Becoming a Member of the Covenant of Hekate

The Sanctuary of Hekate Polymorphos is now able to act as a Membership Centre for the Covenant of Hekate. 

The Covenant of Hekate is a diverse community of devotees who share a passion for the Goddess Hekate. In our work we share a vision of the Goddess Hekate as “Soteira” that is Saviour or Cosmic World Soul. At the same time we maintain our unique diversity of visions and experiences of this multi-faceted Goddess. We acknowledge Hekate’s long and varied history, her many attributions and the many cultures she touched both ancient and modern. Our study and practice is rooted in history. Members however are not required to practice in a prescribed manner, other than what is set out in our Guidelines.

 

Our approach might not suit everyone, so we ask that prospective members read the information presented here and on the rest of the website carefully before applying.

We accept membership applications from individuals who are at least 18 years old at the time of application, have an established relationship with Hekate and who are in sympathy with our goals, which are:

1. To establish an international society through which the history and mysteries of the Goddess Hekate, as the Cosmic World Soul, are studied, shared and experienced.
2. For each member to strive towards fulfilling their full potential in all that they are and all that they aspire towards becoming.

Membership application process:

You may also want to read some of the books, or visit the websites that are given on our “recommended reading list”, to learn a little more about the Goddess Hekate, if you have not done so already.
