About the Sanctuary of Hecate Brimo

an official Sanctuary of the Covenant of Hekate

Some History

The Sanctuary of Hekate Brimo is something I have been looking to create for quite a while. My original Sanctuary was called The Sanctuary of Hekate Trivia and was established on May 18, 2015. In October 2016, Hurricane Matthew hit our area and my entire property was covered with flood waters, polluted with human and animal wastes, chemical and fuel spills and of course the aftermath of flooded hog, turkey and chicken farms that were not evacuated from the rising waters. I felt I had no choice but to close the Sanctuary in the wake of such devastation.   

From the ashes, however I felt it was now time after a global pandemic and the flames of war rising, to refocus this energy and bring back the goddess to these lands. I am establishing the Sanctuary of Hecate Brimo as an official sanctuary of the Covenant of Hekate. I recall my last dedicate ritual, I held a bonfire and while I was taking photos, the image to the right appeared. I can clearly see the outline of the goddess holding a torch in the flames. To me, this was a message of acceptance for the work I planned to do then, and now like a phoenix rising from the ashes, she has called to me to revive my work in the light of her flames as Hecate Brimo.

The Sanctuary of Hecate Brimo IS NOT a magical or spiritual tradition, instead we are a community united by our passion for the Goddess Hecate, in her many forms, faces and manifestations in the 21st century. 

Who am I?

I am an ordained spiritual counselor, artist, reader and an intuitive living in rural North Carolina. I make my home on the banks of the Neuse River, as the Neuse River Witch, with my partner of 20 years and our fur babies. I work with several divination tools but prefers photo and body readings. I have a strong connection to working with the beloved dead and conduct rituals to welcome them when the veil is thinnest. I joined the Covenant of Hekate in 2012 with the completion of the right of the red cord and delved into learning all she could about the goddess. I advanced to Torchbearer by 2014 and then joined the ranks as one of the first Keybearers in 2018. I strive to continually grow within my spiritual path and currently considers myself a Buddhist Hecatean. I look to incorporate the five virtues and the four noble truths into my daily life.

My professional certifications include:

Torchbearer & Keybearer of the CoH, RSO, RSM, PMI-ACP, Ordained Spiritual Counselor, Certified Holistic Wellness Coach, International Yogi Certification, Certified Crystal Master, Aroma Therapy Practitioner & Expert Sound Healer Certification

Why Hecate Brimo?

To me there is nothing more dangerous than a mother protecting her young. When I see Hecate Brimo, I see her as the angry mother. The mother who see her children suffering and is coming to save them.  I recognize Hecate as the mother of all live and even the source of our souls. When she sees our homeless left aside, she is angry. When she see the animals that we should be protecting left out in the cold she is angry. This anger turns to action when we call upon her to give her knowledge and wisdom to help us help others. In the work of the Sanctuary of Hecate Brimo, my goal will be to honor her by using my body, mind and spirit to help those in need, protect those who cannot protect themselves and lift those who have fallen.

What Will We Provide

The Sanctuary of Hecate Brimo will be virtual first and will offer ritual and spell work as well as work locally with the homeless residents of Wayne County NC; human and animal alike with its support of The Blessing Box Goldsboro initiative and for our animal friends, Furever Paws of Goldsboro.

My Art

I love creating things. I work with several mediums including clay, resin and wire. To the left are a set of copper keys I created that have resin cabochons that are filled with my protection herb blend. The body of the key is made from copper wire that I weave into assorted designs. In this case keys.  I have added a couple videos below of some of my other work.

You can find most of my creations for sale on my Shop page.
