Hellenic Spirit is a group based in the Toronto, Ontario area and dedicated to observing ancient Greek festivals and holidays, with special focus on the Classical Era.  We are a proto-demos of Hellenion and we operate under the umbrella of Embolden.

We are committed to welcoming participants of all backgrounds and beliefs in an environment where all are equally included. Those who may be interested in initiatory degrees; secrets; esoteric mysteries; or magical practices are welcome to find such things in other groups while joining us for inclusive events open to everyone.

Each of our public events ends with a symposium or celebration supported by our members. Membership provides the opportunity to support our activities and to receive notice of our on-going activities and admission to special events.

You can contact us by sending an email to info at hellenicspirit dot ca.  This email is checked once or twice a week.
