Shelves: religion, history
To be honest, I almost passed this book by because of its home-spun appearance. I was afraid that it was just another pseudo-spiritual, misinformed New Age compiliation by people who don't really know the subject. I went ahead and bought it anyway, and I am so glad that I did! Do not let the apparent simplicty of this book fool you. Although written in everyday language, the content is among the best I've seen on the subject of Hekate. It is well-researched, and avoids (and actually debunks, muc ...more

Unfortunately, this book doesn't offer anything more than what you an find by googling "hekate" and looking through forums and websites.

An inspirational collection of personal accounts, experiences, and worship by a large group of Hekate's devotees. The first portion of the book is a concise history of Hekate and was written by Sorita. It's a good introduction, but the second part (the essays) is personal gnosis at its best. Some of the experiences and conclusions seemed odd and off the mark, while others were uncannily similar to my own experiences.
A few of the writers included some of the pathworkings they use to meditate on

A wonderful collection of a diverse range of experiences of this luminal and often elusive goddess. Split into three sections, the books opens with a brief introductory ‘lesson’ on the history and mythology of Hekate, which, while short, is thorough and well sourced, and followed by a bibliography and further reading section for those that want a bit more to get their teeth into.

The middle section is dedicated to the experiences of devotees of Hekate, from many different walks of life. It’s wort

One of the first attempts presenting and exploring the Goddess of the Three-ways, the Goddess who hold the keys to the whole world. A leading book for 2006! Hekate is now very famous in the Witchcraft community. This books consists of 3 parts.
Part one is (pg. 19-38) is a small presentation to the history of the Goddess. The writer's points derive from ancient texts. There is a small table of correspondences, some clarifications about misconseptions that we still read on the web.
Part two has var

I really liked it. I liked the author's scholarly beginning to the book, with a bit of brief history about Hekate in ancient Greece. I enjoyed most of the personal essays...some leaned towards a new age cheesiness, but overall I felt they were sincere descriptions of individuals' and groups' efforts to work with this goddess and her unique attributes. A theme throughout many of the essays resonated with me personally; "You don't choose Hekate, she chooses you". This book gave me a better underst ...more

Sorita's compilations on all all things Hekate, are a must for all Devotees and followers of the mighty Goddess.
I enjoy reading the different perspectives and ways of working with Hekate.
The recipe and ritual section at the end is an invaluable resource.
