One of the great lights of Goddess spirituality went out on November 14. The honorable Olivia Robertson, co-founder of the Fellowship of Isis, passed over in her sleep in her home, Clonegal Castle in Ireland, surrounded by friends. She was 96.

There are a lot of wonderful blogs, memorials, and obituaries about Olivia all over the web so I won’t get into the biographical details of her life her. I recommend reading Olivia’s biography on the Fellowship of Isis website and also this obituary in The Telegraph. She was courageous, a pioneer, a mystic, an artist, a writer, a world-traveler, a priestess, a queen, a representative of the Goddess, and she will be missed.

I’m sorry that I never got to meet Olivia and I am proud to call myself a member of the Fellowship of Isis and carry on her mission of promoting awareness of the feminine divine. Olivia’s legacy is a great one and may the Fellowship of Isis continue.

This weekend, I was fortunate to attend a memorial service in her honor hosted by the Lyceum of Heka, which I believe may be the only FOI center active in Australia. It was a hot and sunny first day of summer, which drew a lot of people to the beach where the ceremony was planned, but we found a wonderful nook under a big tree.

“In the Name of Isis, may the soul of our beloved friend return with joy to her heavenly Home.”

  1. I am sorry to hear of her passing, one of the ebodiments of the all that I connect too is Isis. One of the first sites I learned from was called The CIrcle of Isis but have not been able to find it recently. If she started the return of Isis Then she was a really great women and will be greatly missed but we will see her again and she will be even better than she was in this life for she definitely earn next cycle of knowledge.
    In the name of the all and isis bless be all who love and honored this great women.

  2. Reblogged this on MOONWATER PRESS and commented:
