A major goddess in Ancient Egypt, Isis was mistress of magic and spells. She turned the wheel of the year with the fertility cycle of the land. 

Isis travelled with the Greeks and Romans from Egypt across Europe, shape-shifting in appearance and nature, becoming the 'Universal Goddess'. There was a Roman temple dedicated to her in London. The goddess evolved through the Mystery Cults and their initiatory rites of Isis that concerned the soul and the afterlife. 

Isis re-emerged as a major figure in the occult revivals of the 19th and 20th centuries. In Britain, she inspired leading lights in Theosophy and The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. She was a powerful force in Dion Fortune's magical work, and that of several key figures in the esoteric world, and was an animating current in later neo-pagan movements. 

In this online talk, we'll follow this golden thread of the goddess on her continuing journey...
