Today there are tons of opportunities for those of you who want to deepen your knowledge and understanding of the Torch-bearing Hekate, the Triple Goddess of the Crossroads! There are websites, blogs, books, classes and courses. What follow is a small selection of online learning opportunities organised by members of the Covenant of Hekate which are all happening before the end of the year. If you know of an event taking place before the end of 2023 post it in a comment!

Archives: Hekate Symposium 2021
If you missed out on the 2021 Hekate Symposium, or if you were one of the many 100's of participants and want to rewatch, you can now access the archives via subscription at 50% off the usual cost, making it only US$6 - for HOURS of talks and rituals. It was all recorded live, so note that the quality varies, and that none of it was edited - but if you want an authentic mix of opinions, research and approaches you might enjoy.

CoH Website: Introduction to Hekate
And if you haven't yet, remember that the Introduction to Hekate on this very site is a wonderful first stop to make sure that you have a good, grounded knowledge of the Goddess. It usually takes an hour or two to work through the page and all the material provided on it - but it is very much worth it! https://www.hekatecovenant.com/the-goddess-hekate
Also: Check out the CoH Sanctuaries - some Sanctuaries host regular events and learning chances. I hope that these Hekatean Events will lead you towards some fun learning opportunities!
