BERLIN Nov. 19 /Daily Offbeat/ — If there is a modern symbol for the Left Hand Path, it is Zeena. Zeena Schreck, the spiritual leader of the Sethian Liberation Movement, released an all-in-one collection of her iconic portraits in a new 2015 calendar.
Zeena Schreck was born Zeena Galatea LaVey 51 years ago today, in commemoration her birthday, Zeena and the Kaliyuga Clearing House released a selection of some of “the most iconic portraits of Zeena throughout her life.”
Zeena is the daughter of Church of Satan co-founders Anton LaVey and Diane Hegarty. Zeena was three years old when she rose to national prominence when she had the first public Satanic baptism in history on May 23, 1967. The ceremony, and the accompanying reenactment of the Satanic Mass ceremony brought on worldwide publicity and controversy. When the ceremony was released as an album in 1969, it was the second recorded Satanic Mass made public in history. The American proto-metal band Coven, fronted by Jinx Dawson, beat it by a few months when they included it on their “Witchcraft Destroys Minds & Reaps Souls” album.
In the accompanying statement to the calendar’s release, the calendar makers say “You may have been fooled into paying high prices from Zeena’s detractors and ex-family members, who’ve profited from unauthorized & illegal sales of Zeena’s copyrighted images. But in this collection you have 12 such images in high definition taken from the original negatives straight from the authorized source – Zeena herself – for less than you’ve paid on Ebay or Etsy. If you are a true Zeena fan, don’t pay her adversaries high prices anymore for these images!”
Zeena was the High Priestess of the Church of Satan during the 1980s. During a period Satanism was getting heavy publicity for accusations of ritual abuse, Zeena appeared on nationally syndicated TV interview shows, including, The Phil Donahue Show, Nightline with Ted Koppel, Entertainment Tonight, Sally Jessy Raphael and a galvanizing appearance on the Geraldo Rivera Show.
Zeena renounced all ties to the Church of Satan and her father in 1990, legally changing her last name to her married name Schreck, though she is professionally known by the single monicker, Zeena. Zeena converted to Tibetan Tantric Buddhism in the Drikung, Karma Kagyu and Nyingma lineages.
Zeena is also an artist, musician, author and animal rights activist, composing and performing with the experimental sonic magical musical project Radio Werewolf.
Zeena is the Hemet-neter Tepi Seth of the Sethian Liberation Movement. After a lifetime of sensational journalism, she does not grant press interviews. She will only speak to serious scholars of religion and mysticism and/or practicing adherents of a spiritual path.
