Labrys & Horns: New Second Edition Now Available

I'm pleased and proud to announce the release of the revised and updated second edition of Labrys & Horns. Since the publication of the first edition in 2016, we've expanded our pantheon and sacred calendar, created a new standard ritual format for both groups and solitaries, and developed a set of spiritual practices that we all share.

When I say the second edition is expanded, I mean it. The first edition, in print format, is 140 pages long. The new second edition clocks in at 243 pages.

What's in the new edition? All this stuff:

  • The World of the Ancient Minoans: how the Minoans fit in with the rest of the ancient world, the seasons in the Mediterranean and how that impacts our sacred calendar, ancient Minoan spiritual life

  • Modern Minoan Paganism: our symbols and basic spiritual practices

  • The Pantheon: our gods and goddesses, their characteristics, and ways to develop relationships with them in the modern world

  • The Minoan Sacred Calendar: the holy days and festivals we celebrate as a modern revivalist Pagan tradition

  • The Rituals: our standard ritual format for groups and solitaries, rituals to consecrate your altar and connect with the Minoan pantheon, how to make offerings, an exploration of ecstatic postures

  • Devotionals: a great way to connect with the Minoan gods and goddesses - there's a devotional for every deity in our pantheon

  • Create It Yourself: make your own finger labyrinth, labrys-and-horns, or drop spindle

  • Compendium: find out about the foods, stones, incense, and herbs and Minoans used so you can add them to your practice

  • Resources: books and music to enrich your spiritual path

Over the past five years, Modern Minoan Paganism has solidified as a tradition. We've come a long way from a handful of folx in a Facebook group who just wanted to find others who felt a connection with the Minoan deities. I'm grateful for all the lovely people in our community who have participated in the development of MMP. I really mean it when I say we're all in this together.

In the name of the bee, And of the butterfly, And of the breeze, amen.
