Madrina Dini has opened a wonderful google plus community, Deanic Ladies . This is not a discussion group such as we’ve had in the past, rather this is an actual online, private community for Deanic women. You do not have to have gmail in order to join nor do you have to be a member of the JOP.
However, where this is a private community, membership is by invitation only. If you are a Deanic or Filianic female and would like to request an invitation to join the community, please contact Madrina Dini at: hearthofheid@ .
Dear sisters in Dea, welcome to our community! Here are the basic guidelines and rules of etiquette for our community which we hope will find your acceptance conditional on joining the ‘Deanic Ladies’ community. First of all, this group is intended as a place of support and sharing for female devotees of Dea, who follow a Deanic Way of Life. This does not only mean to be Deanic, but also to wish to follow a feminine traditional way of living; which includes aiming towards a life of Beauty and Love, as well as aiming towards increasing in the Virtues which stream from the Holy Janati.We use the word ‘aim’ deliberately: to live truly as Deanic lady is an everyday endeavour, perfection of which being something we can only strive towards with little steps of improvement on the way by grace of Dea.This is not a ‘discussion group’ per se. Politics and religion, other than the greater Deanic Faith, are not being discussed here. We address everybody with their respective title in all posts and comments. (Abbreviations and symbols for titles may be used.) Courtesy, respect, gentleness, humility are fundamental qualities which will be expected for all posts and comments. ‘Deanic Ladies’ is independent of any specific branch or tradition of the greater Deanic Faith, and any female Deanic devotee is welcome. ‘Deanic Ladies’ is also an independent community and not connected to any groups, societies or communities – past or current – which adopt/ed Deanism/Filianism. Appreciation for and interest in specific cultures and languages may be shared here, however, we do not promote any specific culture – of any time or geography – as ‘ideal’. Moreover, we do not accept a general disregard for “Western” (European and North-American) geographical culture. Part of our Deanic Way of Life is to bring that which we hold as beautiful, holy, good and true into the here and now. As such, we aim to be torchbearers to bring the Light of the Mother – by grace of the Daughter – into the world we live in. Please be so kind as to read this article ‘Following our Lady’s teachings: a philosophy for life’ by the late Madria Olga Lotar.http://theapedia.referata.com/wiki/Following_our_Lady%27s_teachings:_a_philosophy_for_lifeMay Our Lady bless us, our sisterhood, and this community.Yours in Dea,Madrina Dini(Prima Filia of the Janite Deanic Tradition & Janite Order of Priestesses; founder of ‘Pantheacraft – A Deanic Way of Life; admin of ‘Deanic Ladies’)
