Why Hekate and Tara's Experience?  Several years ago, during a period when I was exploring death-related aspects of life, Hekate became a significant influence. This coincided with the passing of 4 family members within 4 months, prompting me to become a certified death doula. Hekate guided me to the open gates of the Hekate Tribe Applebranch Group, where I sat in regular devotion, meetings, rituals, and studies for over a year. I was initiated into the tribe just before the 2020 pandemic and officially invoked Hekate as my guide in June 2020. Although my practice with her has varied, and I am no longer active with the Hekate Applebranch, she has remained a constant presence. In the past year and a half, Hekate has re-emerged strongly after another immediate family member's passing. My ancestral DNA is linked to Greece and the Anatolian region, home to Hekate temple. This June, I will be co-guiding an Aegean Pilgrimage with my soul sister and Turkish friend, Nilgun. Perhaps you might be interested in joining us.   I've also read Hekate's Garden by Cyndi Brannen in 2021 during my studies with the Applebranch Group.  Part of the the land on Raven wild farm, in which I reside is dedicated to her. 
How is Hekate related to tantra?  Tantra encompasses the entirety of life, from birth and childhood to adulthood, death, and beyond. Within tantra, there is an emphasis on learning from and honoring deities.  Most tantric practitioners and devotees understand tantra's inclusivity extends to respecting Gods/Goddesses from various cultures, such as Hekate.
Can I read ahead of the group?  Yes, perhaps you've even read the book already. I encourage you to write down the answers to the prompted questions for deeper understanding. 
Who guides the course?  Tara, founder & guide of Earth Tantra.  Click here to learn more about me.   
I'll guide and present all material.  I'm NOT a guru, Hekate Scholar or "Witch".  However I do consider myself earth based (not pagan or shaman).  See the first question above for more info and my personal connection and experience.
Do you supply the book?  No.  The book isn't supplied.  You can either purchase the book from a local bookstore, amazon/ kindle , audible or search for an upcycled book. It could even be in circulation through your local library loan system.  Be sure to extend the check out the book an additional week or 2.  We recommend you order the book right away to make sure it arrives on time. 
Can I get a little more information on the book?  Yes.  CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE
What if I can't make a session?   No problem.  All zoom sessions are recorded and shared with the group.  Saved session links are good for up to one year.  Also, you can choose to join us conveniently Wednesdays at 11am MST, or  7pm MST or for both.
