The pristine Anadikia altar before the ritual103 viewsAltar for Anadikia ritual 14 July 2007

This ritual is called Anadikia, which means 'renewal of an action', because it marks the end of an annual cycle and the beginning of another. It's based on the Athenian celebration of their new year. We honoured Zeus and Hekate in their roles as Soter and Soteria, which concerns deliverance, safety and preservation. We will gave thanks for the year behind us and sought a blessing for the year ahead.
The white cloths cover the offerings. Doreen Taylor's statues are the ones of Artemis of Ephesus. Hermes, Artemis, Athena on a jug and and an Athenian owl (one small one in brass and another as pottery). Kevin Taylor put out two representations of Demeter.
