Ariadne's Tribe: Minoan Spirituality for the Modern World

Walk the sacred labyrinth with Ariadne, the Minotaur, the Great Mothers, Dionysus, and the rest of the Minoan family of deities. Ariadne's Tribe is an independent spiritual tradition that brings the deities of the ancient Minoans alive in the modern world. We're a revivalist tradition, not a reconstructionist one. We rely heavily on shared gnosis and the practical realities of Paganism in the modern world. Ariadne's thread reaches across the millennia to connect us with the divine. Will you follow where it leads?

Find out all about Ariadne's Tribe at We're an inclusive, welcoming tradition, open to all who share our love for the Minoan deities and respect for our fellow human beings.

Ariadne's Tribe Pantheon Series: The Full List

Ariadne's Tribe is a revivalist tradition of modern Pagans in relationship with the Minoan deities from ancient Crete. Our pantheon is a crowded one, and it can take some time to explore the different deities. With that in mind, I'm writing a series that explores each god and goddess and where we can find their symbology in Minoan art and artifacts.

You can find our full pantheon hereHere are the posts in this pantheon series:







Tauros Asterion



The Horned Ones (the Minotaur, Europa/Pasiphaë, the Minocapros, Amalthea, the Minelathos, and Britomartis/Diktynna)

Serpent Mother


The Melissae

You can also learn how to interpret Minoan iconography, regardless of which deity is being represented, here.

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