According to ancient Greek mythology Maenad’s were (and quoted) were the nymphs who had nursed the infant Dionysus. These are referenced at Homer Iliad, 6.130:
“Nay, for even the son of Dryas, mighty Lycurgus, lived not long, seeing that he strove with heavenly gods—he that on a time drave down over the sacred mount of Nysa the nursing mothers of mad Dionysus; and they all let fall to the ground their wands, smitten with an ox-goad by man-slaying Lycurgus. But Dionysus fled, and plunged beneath the wave of the sea, and Thetis received him in her bosom, filled with dread, for mighty terror gat hold of him at the man’s threatenings. Then against Lycurgus did the gods that live at ease wax wroth, and the son of Cronos made him blind; and he lived not for long, seeing that he was hated of all the immortal gods.”
Though there are many women–even men–who consider themselves something of a Maenad! I am here to explain my more modern version of what a Maenad is–I can only explain my own version, what it means to me, what I practise when it relates to the God of Wine, Dionysus! What he means to me and what he signifies as well as speaks into my ear!
This is a post that is related to the new and improved Angelic Army of Ares–The God of War!
