In esoteric lore it is said that in the days of Atlantis, the Goddess Liberty herself erected a vast Temple complex honoring the Sun and the Twelve Solar Hierarchies on and around what is now the Greater New York City Area. The Central Altar was in New York Harbor, where the Statue of Liberty now stands. Though there were several such complexes on our globe throughout our history, including in South America, the one past the Western Gate of Atlantis was our planet’s primary focal point for Gaia.

Masks of Elemental Air – by Hercules Invictus


Although the Hellenic influences of my childhood were not in the forefront of my training and education as a deep-trance medium for ‘the Work’, which was focused primarily on the here and now, my affinity for the Xotika: Devas, Nature Spirits and Elementals, was highly valued and I was soon considered an expert on such matters by those in our circle.

The I AM Activity – by Hercules Invictus


My childhood was saturated with Greek Mythology, Greek culture, Greek history, Greek language, Greek philosophy, Greek literature, and Greek religious thought – thanks to eight years of private Greek schooling. I grew up in a Greek household, learned to speak Greek before I ever spoke a word of English, and absorbed Greek customs, superstitions and ways of viewing the world.

I also learned that being Greek is a full-time job, that we are the descendants of gods and heroes, and that it is our personal responsibility to Hellenize the non-Greek world.

A Bridge to Mount Olympus – By Hercules Invictus


My great yearning for Mount Olympus manifested very early in life. Alas, my only means of immersion, besides play, was imagining myself being one of the protagonists in the ancient tales my mother narrated at bed-time. My favorite hero was, of course, Hercules. Being Hellenic, my home had more than its share of mythic talismans in the form of statues, vases and plates, so the Greek myths were forever present.

Bridging Here With The Hereafter – by Hercules Invictus


For my final Labor King Eurystheus charged me with fetching Hades’ hound, triple-headed Kerveros. In order to purify me for this task, for no one who is impure can traffic with the Gods Below, the goddess Demeter herself inspired her initiates at Eleusis to institute a new holy rite to honor her daughter Persephone. Through my participation in this rite I would be cleansed of all accrued miasma and rendered pure.
