Hekate is an ancient goddess whose worship and mention spans nearly the whole of Western civilization. The earliest recorded evidence of Her worship comes from the Carians of Anatolia (present-day Turkey). The Ancient Greeks incorporated her into their pantheon of deities, sharing mythological stories with Apollo, Artemis, Hermes, and Persephone. After the Dark Ages loosened their hold on Europe, Shakespeare included Hekate in his play Macbeth. In modern times, Her interest and devotional following is experiencing a modern resurgence, largely from Pagan, Hellenic Polytheism, and Wiccan religious communities, though among many different followers of various spiritual backgrounds, as well.
Following a brief historical overview, you can participate in a modern ritual devotional led by Temple at the Crossroads, a South Florida devotional group focusing on developing a working relationship with the goddess. She has aided many human beings through their life journeys. Come and join us for an evening of learning, community, and spiritual experiences!
