Modern Minoan Paganism: Walking with Ariadne's Tribe

Walk the sacred labyrinth with Ariadne, the Minotaur, the Great Mothers, Dionysus, and the rest of the Minoan pantheon. Modern Minoan Paganism is an independent polytheist spiritual tradition that brings the gods and goddesses 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 Modern Minoan Paganism on our website: https://ariadnestribe.wordpress.com/. We're a welcoming tradition, open to all who share our love for the Minoan deities and respect for our fellow human beings.

Modern Minoan Paganism: Resources for Inspiration

How do we practice Modern Minoan Paganism? What resources are available for people who are interested?

The most direct, comprehensive way to learn about MMP is via my two books Labrys & Horns and Ariadne's Thread. Labrys & Horns in particular is a how-to book for MMP. But if you don't feel like flipping through a book, there are other options for inspiration.

This blog is one place you could start. I've been writing here since 2014, so there's a lot of material, some of which has changed over time as we have developed MMP's practices. If you want the basics about the Minoans and MMP, here are the best choices:

Our pantheon: Modern Minoan Paganism: The Full Pantheon

Our sacred calendar: The Minoan Sacred Year: A Modern Pagan Calendar

The types of offerings our deities prefer: Offering to the Minoan Gods

Putting the Minoans in historical perspective: Who were the Minoans' neighbors?

Please note that the Minoans were not Greek: A Bit of a Rant: The Minoans weren't Greek!

Where to find the deities in Minoan art: The MMP Pantheon Series: The Full List

For further inspiration, I have a Youtube playlist that includes the opening and closing chants for our ritual format, some other chants you can use for meditation, ritual, or labyrinth walking, and other resources.

Our discussion forum, Ariadne's Tribe on Facebook, is also a good source of inspiration and information. In addition to the posts and conversation we share, we have collected up book lists, website lists, and other helpful goodies in the Files section of the group. The Files section also includes a downloadable version of our standard ritual format for both solitaries and groups. There's always plenty to explore.

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

Laura Perry is an artist, writer, and the founder and facilitator of Modern Minoan Paganism. The Minoans of Bronze Age Crete have been a passion of hers since a fateful art history class introduced her to the frescoes of Knossos back in high school. Her first book was published in 2001; one of her most recent works is Labrys and Horns: An Introduction to Modern Minoan Paganism. She has also created a Minoan Tarot deck and a Minoan coloring book. When she's not busy drawing and writing, you can find her in the garden or giving living history demonstrations at local historic sites.
