Answer your soul's call to come back to the goddess.  

Claim her keys of magic, medicine and mystery.
Become a member of The Covina Institute, dedicated to teaching transformation through psychology, spirituality and the wisdom of the goddess.

Author of Keeping Her Keys, Dr. Cyndi Brannen has created Covina as a soul school at the crossroads of psychology, spirituality and traditional wisdom.

You can begin at any time, and proceed at your own pace.

Covina comes from the Latin word meaning to come together for a shared purpose. Within the gates of our institute, you'll find the keys of psychology, spirituality and the traditional wisdom of the goddess meeting at the crossroads of learning, transcendence, and kinship.

Quotidia: The Sacred Daily Practice

At the center of Covina is Quotidia: The Sacred Daily Practice. Ignite the Fire of Hekate, Awaken the Soul, and Experience The Oracle. Learn more here.

Lunaria: Walk Hekate's Wheel of the Year 

Based on the moon cycle and astrology, the monthly curriculum includes lessons (audio, video and written), correspondences (plants, stones, colors, cards, archetypes, and epithets), discussions, sharing circles, medicine lodges, and live rituals exploring the Many Faces of Hekate. 

Watch this video about Hekate as Ergatis to learn how the monthly curriculum works.

Animara: Experience The Sacred

Each month, a live ritual experience is offered, from meditative Moon Lodges to the high ritual of Hekate, known as Animarum Luna Obscura. The Rituals of the Sacred Cave is our annual cycle following The Wheel of the Year. We enter Hekate's Cave to follow the journey through darkness to wholeness through release of what binds, retrieving the soul, and being reborn.

Monthly events, including moon lodges, salons and workshops.

Watch this New Moon Oracle Salon to get an idea what our live events are like.
