Dionysian Mysteries – Ancient Healing Rites through Trance Dance

In stock
Product Details

Join Demetra George for the second installment of her webinar series on the Greek Mystery Religions.

Dionysus/Bacchus is the god of wine, intoxication and religious ecstasy. He is a complex deity with widespread and varied worship. This webinar will focus upon his mystery rites associated with the Maenads and women’s religion.

The initiates, as a group, experienced a direct descent of divine energy into themselves whose purpose was to bring about a catharsis and healing. The healing power of the god was invoked through music and ecstatic dance in wild nature settings. Demetra will also share stories and images from the 2019 tour about a modern-day Dionysian-like ceremony that the tour group witnessed in a small village in northern rural Greece.

You can personalize your connection to these ancient mystery rites by determining the positions of the asteroids Dionysos and Bacchus in your chart. They will suggest where and how in the realm of Dionysos you go to the edges of rational consciousness in order to experience an ecstatic state of being.
