  • Gosh, I love the temple and the dresses. It feels like an old memory, or maybe just what I’d imagine a priestess wearing. It feels so nice, these ancient things coming back to us.

    • I know Anne Linn, Greece has a real special feeling to it, like you can sense the higher principles of truth, beauty and harmony etc. in everything that permeated life there.

      • I remember you saying once (or I think it was you) that the light is somehow different in Greece. And then I felt it too when I visited. It feels very special. And people there have a real sense of beauty.

  • Hi Alexis, thank you for contributing this research, what a nice temple with meaningful inscription on it! I also like their “accessories”, the decorative fire-stand, the yellow fabric on the pillar, the statue in the background… The Greeks definitely seem to have an ingrained sense of beauty within them.

  • It’s amazing how each country or place at one point or another in their history had a spiritual culture with ceremonies and rites particular to them, but with the similar core aspects like the significance of the Sun, Fire, standing in a circle for the ceremony with others and other symbols to celebrate this.

    This particular ‘revival’ of the ancient Greek tradition seems very nice. With the robes, Greek style temple, ancient texts and such it does feel it kind of recreates this Greek environment. To me the use of those Greek vases seems a particularly beautiful piece of heritage particular to that region that can me made use of as vessels in the ceremony.

    Thanks for sharing this event about ‘Promitheus who carries the fire.’
