The Labrys religious community (Λατρευτική κοινότητα Λάβρυς) is a non-profit organization formed in 2008 promoting traditional Greek polytheism. Labrys is based in Athens, Greece and focuses on the practical worship (λατρευτικό) aspect of the religion, avoiding the anti-Christian rhetoric and politics sometimes found in other such movements.

Since its formation, it has become the most active, in religious terms, polytheistic group in Greece with weekly open rituals and yearly observance of most major traditional polytheistic festivals.[1][2] Its members also organize and participate in other aspects of traditional Greek culture like music and ritualistic theater promoting a practical polytheistic way of life in modern times.

Since 2009 it has organized the biggest polytheistic culture festival in Athens [3][4][5][6] keeping an open door policy to all interested in following Hellenic polytheism. The community has been publishing various instructions on rituals and other practical things that support worship.

Focusing on practical values and active worship, the group has focused not only on the communal/city aspects of polytheism like most similar groups do, but turned its attention to household worship[7] in order to establish a central core of the religion in family and personal life for those that cannot actively participate in festivals.

The community has created a network of sources for the study of Hellenic polytheism [8] and organizes speeches on modern polytheistic practices. Labrys is also actively involved in the Hellenic "movement" for the restoration of traditional Greek polytheism [9] and promotes it through articles in magazines/TV shows and festivals.[10][11][12]
