Saturday, October 21, 2017 - 7:00pm

Shards of a Broken Mystery: The Restoration of Hekate records the real-time unfolding of the relationship between the author and a Titan Greek goddess, Hekate: denigrated, discarded, and all but forgotten during the rise of the patriarchy in millennia past. The work could be called a psychoactive memoir as page after page seeds and grows a sense of inner process. This book supports the evolving nature of full, true psychological development, including a fresh perspective on the often discussed shadow aspect of the human condition. from the foreword: Mystery! The word itself means “seeing with the eyes closed,” in the context of initiation. Shira Marin’s Shards of a Broken Mystery: The Restoration of Hekate, is itself a mystery, and must be approached as a mystery, seeing with the eyes closed, preparing oneself for ritual initiation.

Should you be so fortunate to be chosen to serve even an unlikely presence as a goddess of old, make no mistake, nothing less than your future is at stake. Taking part in possible futures rather than having futures thrust upon one, is the best possible course. Shards of a Broken Mystery facilitates the awareness of possible futures through the agency of Hekate and even more so as she is restored to vitality in the individual psyche. This is the gift, Shira Marin, through her devotion to Hekate, has presented to us
