Received October 31, 2013

On behalf of the Circle of Brigid, I'm sorry to have to tell you that our planned Festival on Saturday 9th November has had to be postponed to a future date, as Lady Olivia who has been eagerly making arrangements for what was to be a very special event, to take place at Samhain, but relevant at all times, will not now be able to be with us for continued health reasons. This is a great pity but members of the Fellowship worldwide may still wish to tune in on Saturday 9th November, as she originally requested, in support of true Fellowship and wholeness and send her continued loving and healing blessings at this time.

It would be appreciated if members in Ireland could check with anyone they know had intended to be with us on the 9th that they have heard about this change, to save them travelling unnecessarily.

Minette Quick (Hon.Sec.Circle of Brigid)

FOI Members all over the world are invited to enact this global mystery play.

Mystery Play

To be Enacted 9th November 2013

Including Samhain Celebration

Rt. Hon. Olivia Robertson, Co-Founder of the Fellowship of Isis writes:

“The idea is for people all over the world to write their own story in their own language and culture. The Mystery is Universal. The general theme is “The Weighing of the Heart” through the Goddess Ma’at of Justice.”

Order of Ceremony

Procession led by Priest Hierophant David deRoeck, Gatekeeper

Act 1

The Old Abbey, Sacred Centre of the Noble Order of Tara

Hosts: The Noble Order of Tara, an Order of Chivalry

We remember all shamans and solitary workers who struggle against racial and cultural prejudice to do what is right including the Hopi, Siberian shamans, Mayans, African Tribes and all indigenous cultures throughout the world.

Presiding Goddess: Tara of the Stone of Destiny of South East Asia and Ireland

Each lay their hands on their own stone - The Left Hand for Loyalty, Right Hand Moral Courage

Invocation and Oracle of Uma, the Goddess of the Mountain

by Priestess Hierophant Cait Brannigan and Priesthood

Act 2

The Druid Grove, Sacred Centre of the DruidClan of Dana

Hosts: The Druid Clan of Dana

Invocation and calling for the protection of Nature, Divine Mother of us all by Archdruid Luke Eastwood

"Sceal an Sidhe" by Priestess Hierophant Deirdre Wadding

Act 3

The Temple of Isis, Clonegal Castle

Olivia will announce the revival of "The Order of the Helmet" which was begun by Sir Francis Bacon, inspired by Pallas Athena, to protect people’s personal integrity and conscience. We invoke the Goddess Pallas Athena. Olivia will invoke significant ancestors, including Sir Walter Raleigh and Sir Frances Bacon. People who wish can invoke ancestors significant to them. We are hoping for the gift of the Helmet which is the Halo of Light, and comes through the head. We hope to receive the enlightenment of the Inner Sun of Medusa which comes through the heart. We are blessed by the water from the Well of Truth of the Goddess Brigid.

Last ritual

Oracle - The Weighing of the Heart

Mystery Play led by Olivia - Love of all beings and existences “to understand all is to forgive all.”

“The quality of Mercy is not strained. It blesseth him that gives and him that takes” ~ Wm. Shakespeare

Grapes are shared by all in a spirit of generosity - Love comes from sharing.

Thanks are given to the Deities.

We hope that this will be the first F.O.I. Annual World Mystery Play enacted through Inspiration and Creativity.

All are welcome to join.

(Heartfelt thanks to FOI Co-Founder Olivia Robertson and Circle of Brigid member, Prs. Marian Smiles.)
