For 6,000 years, Isis has been worshipped in many forms all over the world. She has been known as the Queen of Heaven, Mother of Nature, Giver of Riches and Justice, Goddess of Love, Magic, and Healing-and as a benevolent, universal goddess who helps anyone who calls on her.

Ms. Regula has been a Priestess of Isis with the Fellowship of Isis for over eighteen years, and is an ordained reverend with the Temple of Isis. Now she shares her decades of study, research, and worship so you can discover the inner secrets of Isis, that ancient goddess of the Sun and Moon, Stars and Earth. In fact, Isis is not "just" an Egyptian Goddess. Here you will see Isis in Her full glory as a universal goddess, present throughout history in all times and places.

The Mysteries of Isis is filled with practical information on all aspects of the modern worship of Isis.

About the author (1995)

A student of the sacred sciences since childhood, deTraci Regula explores the mystical through writing, dreams, and art.  She has been a Priestess of Isis with the Fellowship of Isis since 1983.  With David Harrington, she is the co-author of the upcoming biography of their friend Scott Cunningham, Whispers of the Moon.  In addition to work in the animation industry on such secular epics as the animated version of Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, she also produced and directed the video programs Herb Magic with Scott Cunningham and Witchcraft: Yesterday and Today with Raymond Buckland.  She has traveled to sacred sites in Turkey, China, Japan, and Britain, as well as the United States.
When not writing, deTraci Regula practices Taoist painting and exploring the family geneaology.  Named for her ancestor William deTraci, deTraci Regula comes from a long line of pagans and freethinkers.  One of her ancestors was chastised by the local bishop for "consorting magically with the horses," though what that means exactly has been mysteriously excised from the family histories.  Another ancestor, a Protestant during the reign of the Catholic Queen, "Bloody" Mary, was dug up and burned as a heretic after his death because of certain comments he made in his last will and testament.
