Hekate first appeared to Lotus during a ‘dream’ journey in 2013, though at first, she didn’t know who She was. The very next day while finishing up a book she was reading, she noticed the author, Emily Carding, was noted as being part of something called ‘The Covenant of Hekate’ and then it all clicked. Not one to ignore amazing synchronicities, she began to study up on the history of the Goddess and started building a relationship. It wasn’t long after that she did her Rite of The Red Cord and became a member of the CoH!
Since that time she has participated in the CoH in various ways, the most recent being that of taking on the role of editor for Noumenia News. She also recently founded the very first CoH Postcard Swap which was a lot of fun. As a Torchbearer one of her goals is to continue to work to connect the CoH members across the world in ways that are not attached to social media, and even sometimes completely off the internet when possible, which is where the idea for the swap came from.
Presently Lotus has two main projects she is working on: a book about horses and the Gods, and building a sanctuary website dedicated to Hekate Khthonia to serve the CoH community specifically, but as well, all devotees of the Goddess.
Lotus is especially captivated by the ancient civilizations of Minoa, Mesopotamia, Egypt and Rome, studying what she can of their deities, magic, art and architecture. She also has a special love for Tibet and was involved in Tibetan Buddhism for 20 years, something that was completely lifechanging. She has learned a little Polish, Ukrainian, Greek and Latin, and hopes to learn hieroglyphics one day as well.
More recently she has begun being mentored on the path of obeah which has been absolutely transformative in many ways; as well as leading her back to those ancient roots in Egypt once again.
Lotus resides on beautiful Vancouver Island (Unceded territories of the Coast Salish, Nuu-chah-nulth, and Kwakwaka’wakw peoples.) in B.C. Canada and you can find her oft changing various links here: https://linktr.ee/lotus.anastasia
