Laka Goddess Of The Forest Image
"LAKA" IS THE GODDESS OF THE FOREST, OF ITS GROWTH, FERTILITY, ALL VEGETATION, RAIN AND LOVE; SHE IS THE PATRONESS OF THE DANCE AND HULA. SHE IS THE DAUGHTER OF KAPO AND THE GENTLE SISTER OF THE FIERY GODDESS PELE. HER NAME MEANS "GENTLE, DOCILE. "HER GRACE REPRESENTS THE ESSENCE OF HARMONY, STRENGTH, AND COURAGE. SHE REPRESENTS THE WILD WOODS WHERE THE HULA DANCERS GATHER THEIR FLOWERS, THE LEIS, AND THE FERNS FOR THE ADORNMENT OF THEIR BODIES. AS THE VEGETATION GODDESS, SHE IS ASSOCIATED WITH THE NOURISHING ELEMENTS OF LIGHT AND RAIN. SHE IS THE SACRED GUARDIAN OF THE SUNSHINE. HERBS ARE HER SACRED GIFT TO MANKIND.

LAKA IS MOST WELL-KNOWN FOR CREATING THE HULA, A FORM OF DANCE WHICH IS ACCOMPANIED BY CHANT OR SONG. IT IS THROUGH THE HULA THAT THE HAWAIIAN PEOPLE RECORD THEIR HISTORY AND PASS IT ON TO FUTURE GENERATIONS. THIS WAS LAKA'S GIFT TO HER PEOPLE. EVEN TODAY, AN ALTAR OR OFFERING IS PREPARED IN HONOR OF THE GODDESS. BEFORE PERFORMING HULA, THE ALTAR IS BUILT AND FILLED WITH GREENERY AND AT THE END OF THE DANCE, IT IS DISMANTLED, AND EVERY LEAF IS TAKEN TO THE OCEAN OR A DEEP STREAM AS A WAY TO HONOR LAKA. IRONICALLY, ALTHOUGH PRAYERS ARE ADDRESSED TO THE GODDESS IN MANY HULA PERFORMANCES, FEW, IF ANY HULAS ARE EVER DEDICATED TO HER.

"LAKA INVITES US ALL TO DANCE JOYFULLY UPON THE EARTH"

Goddess Panacea Image
"PANACEA" IS THE GREEK GODDESS OF HEALTH AND HEALING, THE PERSONIFICATION OF HEALING THROUGH HERBS. AND, ALTHOUGH SHE WAS CONSIDERED A MINOR GODDESS, HER NAME SURVIVES TODAY AS A TERM USED FOR A CURE-ALL OR A REMEDY. SHE WAS THE DAUGHTER OF ASCLEPIUS, THE GOD OF HEALING AND MEDICINE AND HIS HEALING WIFE, EPIONE. SHE IS THE GRANDDAUGHTER OF APOLLO.

PANACEA AND HER SISTERS EACH PERFORMED A FACET IN THE ART OF HEALING. PANACEA WAS THE GODDESS OF CURES; IASO WAS THE GODDESS OF RECUPERATION; HYGIEIA WAS THE GODDESS OF DISEASE PREVENTION. ACESO WAS THE GODDESS OF RECOVERY; AND AGLAEA WAS THE GODDESS OF NATURAL BEAUTY.

IT HAS BEEN SAID THAT PANACEA HAD A POULTICE OF A POTION WITH WHICH SHE HEALED THE SICK. THIS IS WHAT BROUGHT ABOUT THE CONCEPT OF THE PANACEA IN MEDICINE. THE RIVER, PANEGA, IS NAMED AFTER PANCEA.

Goddess Ix Zacal Nok Image
IX ZACAL NOK (pronounced EESH SAK-el NOK) is the Mayan Goddess of weaving. She is the wife of Kinich Ahau, God of the sun. As she creates her tapestries, she also creates the changes in the seasons, bringing forth plants in the spring and readying them for harvest in the fall. Ix Zacal Nok, whose name means "lady cloth weaver," is sometimes referred to as COLEL CAB, "mistress of the earth," and as such she was also given dominion over the earth. The title MISTRESS OF THE BEES was also associated with her in this latter guise.
