The Iseum Sanctuary honors the Goddess Isis (known as Aset in Egyptian), who equates with Mother Earth, and has been worshiped longer than any other deity known on the planet. Isis/Aset has 10,000 names and incarnations in other religions and practices all over the world.
In honoring Isis/Aset we honor the Earth; recognizing the threats to our Mother, given the amount of pollution, destruction of endangered species and violence between countries and each other. We seek to establish harmony, caring, and love among all people by demonstrating the way to a more feminine perspective.
The Iseum provides sanctuary, spirituality, safety and harmony. We shelter and care for animals, flora, fauna, and people. Our first Sanctuary is located in Northern California where we are creating a community and providing for many animals, cats, birds, deer, and fowl. We are in the process of manifesting the Bancroft Home; our vision is to create very affordable shared housing, in lovingly created and creative homes, for seniors, veterans and those in need. Please help us manifest this vision!
The specific purpose of the Sanctuary is to serve as place for its members as well as the public to honor the Goddess Aset and all forms of life by establishing harmony, caring, balance, and love among all people along a path to a feminine perspective. We honor the Goddess by serving as a refuge of rescue for animals, trees, flowers and people.
We have what might be called a catma, a feline type of freedom and independence in thought stemming from the ancient wisdom of Egypt and the sacred Mau.
We generally follow the principles of the Fellowship of Isis (FOI). The FOI was established by Lady Olivia Robertson and her brother at Clonegal Castle, Enniscorthy, Ireland, and has tens of thousands of members in over 80 countries.
Those who are Priestesses, Priests, and Initiates within the Iseum Sanctuary, pledge to honor all life, and commit to help preserve and protect all nature, our Mother Earth and her people’s as well as bringing healing light and wisdom to all.
