Orpheus. Bacchus. Cybele. Sabazius. Attis. Isis. A matrix of secret religious cults pulsed through the Mediterranean basin of antiquity, each with its own deity and closely-guarded initiation rite. Like a Thesean thread in a labyrinth of unknowing, the so-called Mystery Schools employed fragrance to accompany initiates from this world to the underworld and back. Inspired by the ecstatic faiths of the Greco-Roman world, Sacred Mysteries stirs the preconscious, urging surrender to an ancient and unfathomable void.
