Inanna, also know as Ishtar, was the primary goddess of the Mesopotamian people who founded some of the first civilizations between the Tigris and Euphrates river. She was a goddess of love, compassion, magic, and power. Inanna was the prototype goddess for later civilizations who worshipped her equivalents Lilith, Hecate and Astarte. After months of research, I have come to know her personally through her poetry and rites. In this class, attendees will learn her through her mythology and role in early Mesopotamian society. In addition, students will learn the incenses, rites, and incantations that I’ve reconstructed from primary sources in archeology, anthropology and myth. This class is for anyone interested in connecting with this amazing goddess, regardless of experience in magic and the occult.
We will follow the class with a ritual invocation to Inanna using the incenses, rites, and incantations we learned. All participants are welcome to take part in the invocation and share together in the magic of the Lady of Largest Heart.
Please bring with you a few items of clothing to be donated after the invocation as an offering to Inanna, and a dish to share in our ritual feast.
