Convocation 2018 FINAL SCHEDULE is now Live!

We are pleased to announce the 2018 Temple of Isis Convocation Schedule.

We are sold-out on rooms, and are very excited to see everyone. We do have a wait-list for Dorm beds and Lodge rooms. Feel free to contact us to get on it.

This year, Normandi Ellis is our Keynote Speaker!

Normandi Ellis's books on Egyptian myth, ritual and magic include The Union of Isis and Thoth, Imagining the World into Existence, Invoking the Scribes, Words on Water, Feasts of Light, and Dreams of Isis. Her translation from the hieroglyphs, Awakening Osiris, is considered a spiritual classic. Of Imagining the World into Existence, Jean Houston said: "Quite simply, this is a masterpiece. It is the life work of a numinous poet, writer, and Egyptian scholar. To read this work is to be planted with the seed of once and future mysteries."An arch-priestess of the Fellowship of Isis, she facilitates trips to Egypt, is a Spiritualist minister, clairvoyant and astrologer and teaches in the School of Metaphysics at Camp Chesterfield. In addition to her studies in Egyptian mysticism, she is a poet and fiction writers, having won awards from the YMCA Writers Voice, the Bumbershoot Award, and awards from the Kentucky Foundation for Women, the Kentucky Arts Council and the Colorado Arts and Humanities. She has been the recipient of fellowships from the Kentucky Foundation for Women, from the Virginia Center for Creative Arts as well as activism sgrants for her work in the environment and with elder women and youth at risk. For more information on her writing, workshops, or travel schedule visit her website.

We look forward to seeing you in October!

Convocation 2017 Schedule is Now Live - Subject to Minor Change

Dear friends,

We invite you to see our amazing (nearly finalized) schedule for Convocation 2017. It's very full, and we want you to know we did our extra-best to fit in as many speakers and events as we could, with the idea in mind that not every person can attend every event. Feel calm and reassured that you can take all the resting or relaxation time you need. Space is very limited at this point, so please make your reservation soon with the understanding that you will be sharing a Lodge Room. Dorm space is full, but we will keep you informed if there are any cancellations. If you have any questions regarding housing, please direct them to Isis Oasis. If you have any questions about programming, volunteering, scholarships, or vending, please email Rain Graves. We are excited to have our special guest Nicki Scully with us, and we are excited to have YOU with us - the most special people of all!
