Membership

In this section you will find more information on how to join the Covenant of Hekate as a Devotee (full member).

The Covenant of Hekate is a diverse community of devotees who share a passion for the Goddess Hekate. In our work we share a vision of the Goddess Hekate as “Soteira” that is Saviour or Cosmic World Soul. At the same time we maintain our unique diversity of visions and experiences of this multi-faceted Goddess. We acknowledge Hekate’s long and varied history, her many attributions and the many cultures she touched both ancient and modern. Our study and practice is rooted in history. Members however are not required to practice in a prescribed manner, other than what is set out in our Guidelines .

Our approach might not suit everyone, so we ask that prospective members read the information presented here and on the rest of the website carefully before applying.

We accept membership applications from individuals who are at least 18 years old at the time of application, have an established relationship with Hekate and who are in sympathy with our goals, which are:

1. To establish an international society through which the history and mysteries of the Goddess Hekate, as the Cosmic World Soul, are studied, shared and experienced.
2. For each member to strive towards fulfilling their full potential in all that they are and all that they aspire towards becoming.

We are devolving our membership applications, and the centralised application system is being replaced by Membership Centres run by Keybearers who facilitate Sanctuaries.  We hope this will help resolve the sometimes long delays in applications being processed, and furthermore that it will encourage communities to grow around language, interest and location into the future.

The Covenant of Hekate has five sanctuaries run by Keybearers that are now also membership centers. Rather than applying for membership as it was in the past, and having everything filter through one person, we are now sharing that joyous responsibility.  You will see the Membership Sanctuaries listed below and you may contact any one of your choosing. Best it be one close to you. Also, best to select one by the language you speak. If, however, one does not mention your language, write to one of us, using an email address below and we will help direct you.

The Sanctuary of Hekate Propolos, was created in the month of July 2019, to provide a space in Austin, Texas for those who honor Hekate or who would wish to know more about Her. We do this by offering occasional rituals to the public as well as “meet-and-greet” meetings to form community around the Sanctuary. Our vision is to widen awareness of Hekate and to offer opportunities for the community in ways to honor Her. We serve as a membership Center For the Covenant of Hekate.

This site maintains a shrine where you may leave prayers, petitions and blessings.  Information about the Covenant of Hekate is available there as well as about the Sanctuary of Hekate Propolos.

For those who wish to study may do so with us at the Liminal Thealogical Seminary.

The Sanctuary of Hekate Hegemonen located in São Paulo, Brasil is focused on the research and study of the History of the Goddess Hekate as part of the journey to get closer to her mysteries. Our rites and practices are modern, inspired by Western Mystery Traditions as well as Hellenic Polytheism. We are always seeking, through historical bases, to make Goddess worship accessible to the needs of modern devotees. We choose the epithet Hegemonen, which means “Guide”, to name our Sanctuary, for just as Hekate guides Persephone on her journey from the underworld, each of us was brought and guided by the Goddess Hekate to answer her call. As Hegemonen guided and illuminated our steps, we wish to be a light for new seekers willing to know and experience the Goddess Hekate.

The Sanctuary of Hecate Brimo will first, be a virtual sanctuary where I will provide support and guidance for those looking to walk with Hecate along the middle path. We will honor the five virtues and conduct our days in line with the goddess. We will focus our energy to help those in need, protect those who cannot protect themselves and lift those who have fallen.

The physical sanctuary will be located in Seven Springs, North Carolina on a small 3.5-acre plot near the Neuse River. When possible, we will conduct rituals for the dark moon and solstices.

Our work for the community will consist of supporting those who are less fortunate by supporting our local outreach groups. Blessing Box of Goldsboro and Furever Paws.

We will be a public sanctuary open to members and non-members of CoH.
