April Noumenia (Thargelion)
April 29, 2017 @ 3:00 pm UTC-4
Noumenia is the first day of the lunar month in Hellenismos. It is a time to worship the Olympic Gods of the household. Following the dark of the Moon, when Hekate recieves her Deipnon, families would make offerings at the household shrines to Hestia, Hermes, Apollon, Hekate, Zeus, and other Theoi to give thanks as well as to ask for blessings. It will be an opportunity for all interested to learn about the religious and magical practices of Classical Greece.
The entity of focus for this Noumenia is Zeus, King of the Gods, and there will be a lesson and a fun craft to go with the event. We will be making kthiskoi, charm-like offerings to Zeus Ketisios, and sharing his stories.
Please wear white, if you would like to dress in a chiton, peplos, or other Greek style clothing, you are welcome to do so. Also, please bring food items to share, with humans as well as the Theoi, and a donation of $5.
All are welcome to the Noumenias.
