Autumn Equinox: A Hero's Journey

Inis Ull invites you to the Autumn Equinox Rite honoring Hermes who we will ask to help guide us on a hero's journey to the underworld. Why do heroes take the underworld journey to begin with? What are they seeking? 

There are underworld journeys in almost every culture, but today we will celebrate the fall with the Greeks. The list of heroes and gods who descend into the underworld is long, including Theseus, Odysseus, Heracles, Orpheus, Dionysus, Hera, and Persephone.
