What does 'The Iseum of the Tao of Isis' mean?

Iseum: The Greco-Roman word for a temple, shrine, or sanctuary dedicated to the worship of Isis.

Tao: Ancient Chinese word that literally means 'The Way', as in 'path'. The Tao is the undefinable, unmanifested, universal divine, often referred to as 'The Mother of the Ten Thousand Things of This World'.

Isis: A Goddess whose worship began in prehistoric Egypt. By Greco-Roman times, she was worshipped as a Universal Goddess throughout the civilized world. Isis is the manifested universal divine, often referred to as 'The Goddess of Ten Thousand Names'.

The Tao of Isis: The personal spiritual path of Paul 'The Mystic Fool' Ingrassia, slowly developed over the past decade and constantly changing and evolving. It is a solitary, eclectic mix of Taoist, Wiccan, Shamanistic, Isian, FOI, and even Catholic Marian practices and rites.

An Isis Rosary

My article 'An Isis Rosary' has been reprinted in the current issue of Mirror of Isis. It can be found at:

This is a slightly expanded version of the original article which appeared in Isis-Seshat Magazine #6, June 2005.

Work is already underway to further expand An Isis Rosary into a book, hopefully to be released by mid-to-late 2010.

Report: Healing Haiti with Prayer

It was a wonderful day full of positive energy. The rites at all three time frames went very well. I was able to keep my commitment of reciting a mala prayer cycle every hour from 7 AM to 7 PM: 13 recitations of 180 counts of the FOI Healing Prayer, yielding a total of 2,340 recitations of the prayer.

I referenced the Tarot three times during the day, a single card each time. The first card (Temperance) came by intuition and meditative messages, the second and third (4 of Wands and 4 of Swords) by random drawing. Collectively, they tell a story of the restoration of balance, the building of a simple yet solid foundation leading to prosperity, and peace after conflict. I took them as a very good omen for Haiti's future.

Thank you to my FOI sisters and brothers: Linda and her Lyceum, the Circle of Isis, Dorn, Rosie, and everyone else who joined in by attunement. It was great to work with you all.

By the way, just before typing this report, I saw on Yahoo that a 17-year-old girl was pulled from the rubble, Alive, TODAY! FIFTEEN DAYS AFTER THE QUAKE! A person can only survive 3 days without water, so it is truly a miracle. It makes me teary-eyed. Read about her here:

Wouldn't it be nice if maybe, just maybe, some of the energy we sent today was just enough to make those neighbors hear her tiny, withered voice calling for help from the debris...

Wouldn't it be nice, indeed.

Love, peace and blessings of Isis eternally,

Update: Healing Haiti with Prayer

I have suddenly found myself with the day off from work tomorrow, so I have decided to make Healing Haiti with Prayer an all-day ritual for myself. I will start off at 6:30 AM NY time by lighting a candle which will remain lit all day. Next, I will do my morning FOI attunement. Then, as planned, at 7:00 AM I will perform my healing prayer. Afterwards, I will use a 108 bead mala I have to pray the FOI Healing Prayer for Haiti 108 times. I plan to repeat this mala cycle once every hour, including after the 1:00 PM rite, until the 7:00 PM prayer. I will then do my FOI evening attunement. I also plan to perform personal meditations and readings throughout the day.

It should be a day charged with healing energy!

Healing Haiti With Prayer

I am pleased to announce the first 'public' working of the Iseum of the Tao of Isis: Healing Haiti with Prayer. On Wed, 1/27/10, The Iseum of the Tao of Isis will be performing a healing prayer for the people of Haiti, and would like to invite everyone to join in via attunement. The rite used will be an Isian Healing Prayer I wrote, and will be performed three times during the day: 7:00 AM, 1:00 PM, and 7:00 PM Eastern (New York) time to accomodate all schedules.

The Isian Healing Prayer was first published in Circle Magazine, and later reprinted in Mirror of Isis. The prayer can be found in the MOI archives at: I encourage all to use my prayer, but it is not essential to join in, any healing prayer or rite will work just fine!

I look forward to joining all of you in sending healing energy to Haiti.

Love, peace, and blessings,
