Welcome to Tamesa London Circle (TLC)
Tamesa London Circle, established in 2006 by Mani & April, Celebrates and works magically and spiritually with the River Thames, and it’s spirit (or deity)- known as Thamesis, Tamesa or Thames Isis. This includes the woods & parks of London. River Thames has a long association with London’s history and is full of ancient mysteries- worshiped from Tribal times to Romans and modern pagans and Hindus. Ancient artifacts and bones of cattle and human are still buried in it’s depths. These often surface after a high tide, along the shores.
Treasures of Tamesis: This is the name under which April creates and offers various tribal jewelery, using all sorts of tiny treasures and artifacts found on the banks of the Thames. April adds other items such as old coins, silver pendants, crystals & beads, animal tooth & bones to create these tribal jewelleries. These used to be available in our stalls at various Pagan Festivals. These will be now available via this website - soon!
Tamesa Healing Circle: These briefly ran at Atlantis Bookshop, are were discontinued.
Tamesa Lunar Rituals. suitable for beginners and experienced magical practitioners. Outdoor rituals on the banks of river Thames, and in nearby parks when appropriate. These rituals are based on Lunar cycles (full moon, dark moon, eclipses and work with energies and tides of the river Thames. Hence ritual days, times and locations vary (anywhere between the source of the Thames, to several central London locations, and at South-end-at-Sea where the river Thames meets the sea!).
2014: Tamesa London Circle events will take place on very specific occasions, such as annual Earth Hour walk, River of Souls (Samhain), and the Thames-Isis events.
Thames-Isis Rituals in London 2014
We have completed our magical explorations of the Thames-Isis Ceremonies in 2013. And having been well-received by so many people who attended these rituals, we are inspired to continue them in 2014.
These events are a combination of magical ceremonies & pagan socials, and attune participants into the mysteries and magic of the Goddess Isis in a series of rituals to be held by the banks of river Thames in London. (Tamesis is an old name of river Thames, and supposedly means `Thames-Isis’).
.Transpersonal concepts behind the name:
After much soul searching, and realising there is a proactive effort needed for us to look after ourselves as well as the world around us, we aptly named this community group `Tamesa London Circle’ which also had the initials TLC (Tender Loving Care!). And our symbol (shown here) is the Magical Inner-child riding on the Tamesa Serpent beneath the waves of the river (symbolic of the Subconscious). We have done specific rituals o this matter to empower those attending (photo above).
