Overview of the Iseum Sanctuary

The Iseum Sanctuary honors the Goddess Aset (Isis) and all forms of life by focusing on establishing harmony, caring, balance, and love among all people along a path to a feminine perspective. The Sanctuary seeks to honor the Goddess by serving as a refuge of rescue for animals, trees, flowers and people from harm because they are all part of the Goddess and oneself. The Sanctuary seeks to honor the Goddess with meditation, ceremony and connection to the earth with the Goddess current that runs through us all.

Form of Worship

The organization honors Goddess Aset, the Divine Feminine, and, in the process, the Earth by seeking to establish harmony, caring, and love among all people, as well as all living creatures. This is done by living in demonstration of the way to save our world with an inclusive, more feminine, matriarchal manner, and creed. The Iseum generally follows the principles of the Fellowship of Isis. Iseum Sanctuary worship involves individual and group activities including celebration of religious dates, study and recital of sacred texts, meditation, visualization, and silent or audible prayers.

Ancient Foundations of the Iseum

The Goddess Aset, who equates with Mother Earth, has been worshiped longer than any other deity. She was first worshiped in Ancient Egyptian religion, and later her worship spread throughout the Roman Empire and the greater Greco-Roman world. Ancient Egyptian religion was a complex system of polytheistic beliefs and rituals which were an integral part of Ancient Egyptian society. It centered on the Egyptians’ interaction with many Deities including Aset who were believed to be present in, and in control of, the forces of nature. Rituals such as prayers and offerings were efforts to provide for the gods and gain their favor. Individuals could interact with the gods for their own purposes, appealing for their help through prayer or compelling them to act through magic.

Community

The Iseum is a spiritual community of like-minded people who wish to build a new world, in peace, balance, and harmony. Our first Sanctuary is located in an unincorporated area of Marin County, adjacent to the sensitive wildlife area of San Pedro Mountain. Our small Temple is open for private meditation time. This Sanctuary is a haven for all animals, indigenous spirits, angels and Deities, as well as sacred Oak trees which are 200+ years old.

We preserve our beliefs and expand upon them by sacred meditation, ceremony, and connection to earth, with the Goddess current that runs through us all.
