Where there have been recent changes in the direction of the Janite Tradition, the following is our new, succinct, About Page:
We are a Tradition of the Deanic/Filianic feminine Mystery religion which was founded in the early 1970’s. It is based upon the oldest religion known to humanity, that of our Divine Mother God.
Deanic (Day-anic) means of Dea, of the Mother God. Filianic means of the Daughter. Both are the same basic religion using the same scriptures, but with a different emphasis in worship and practice.
There is much evidence that the religion of Our Mother God stems back over 20,000 years, if not longer. Ours is but a modern interpretation of this most ancient Faith.
We worship Dea, in Her Triple form of Mother, Daughter and Great Mother or Absolute Deity.
The Divine Feminine Trinity may be found in Shaktism. The Divine Mother and Daughter have sources in Sophian, Greek and certain Kabbalistic writings.
We also honor the Seven Powers or Seven Faces of Dea in their angelic form, known to us as the Janati or Janyati.
The Janite Order of Priestesses and Sisterhood is open to women over the age of 18. Our worship and feast days are family oriented.

May Our Lady bless you,
Blessed is She.
