Each year Clergy of the Temple of Isis California and worldwide Fellowship of Isis converge on the Isis Oasis Sanctuary in Geyserville, California to celebrate Convocation, a sacred four day intensive packed with rituals, workshops, mystery plays and dramas, and fellowship. The final ritual event to close Convocation is the Adorations, an extravagant ritual program during which the ancient names and epithets of each year’s pairing of goddess and god are recited in litany form by all present.
Initiated by a lavish procession and presentation of offerings, the focal point of the Adorations is the large, multi-tiered shrine erected by members of Temple of Auset Nevada under the visionary direction of the Rt. Rev. Lady Zarita. These shrines, together with the Adorations, have become a much cherished tradition of the annual TOI and FOI Convocation, always leaving those who have attended touched directly by the divine spark of the Gods that comes to settle within these temporary sacred spaces so lovingly envisaged by Lady Zarita.
The following presentation of photographs is a visual record, organized by year, of the sacred vision of Lady Zarita for establishing tangible links between our human realm and the divine realm of the Gods.
