Thank you so much for choosing to support my work. I prefer not to create tiers or a paywall to my work; I'd like to keep these myths - and the art they inspire - as accessible as possible. That said, I would love your support - it helps me afford the time and tools for my craft. I'm so grateful you're here!

About The Pythian Seed

Welcome - my name is Ekstasy Vine Karakitsou. I am a Greek-American writer, herbalist, and artist living in northern Greece.

Follow along as I celebrate the myth, magick, and plant lore of the ancient Greeks, their stories ripe with Eros and deeply rooted in Mediterranean soil.

Through poetry, ceremony, and artwork, meet the wildflowers, herbs, and trees of the mythic landscape. Wander temples, groves, and wild sanctuaries that have been celebrated for thousands of years. Understand Greek myth and culture not just as stories created by humans, but as traditions growing from the landscape itself: rooted in Mediterranean soil and nourished by the sun, sea, and mountains.
