I have lived on the lip of insanity, wanting to know reasons, knocking on a door. It opens. I’ve been knocking from the inside.” ― Jalaluddin Mevlana Rumi – مولوی This quote is the first thing I recognized from the outside world as being anything close to my experiences with shadow work and the mystical experiences it brings. I could have just looked inward at anytime, but everytime I did, every time I lugged the lamp of my consciousness over… Read more

Indo-European mythology is full of gatekeepers, psychopomps, and sacrificers. There is one in every pantheon. Read more

First Gods Which gods to call and in what order to call them is often a question we face when reconstructing our rites. The best way to reconstruct the structure of rites around invoking the highest gods, is to use the Tripartition Hypothesis. If we don’t have the knowledge of how the gods were invoked and in what order, we look to survivals in cultures in the same language family as ours. For us this information is contained within Vedism,… Read more

Who are the Gods? Starting from the beginning, and building off of previous works. The IE tribes stemmed from the Yamnaya culture. In our anthropological reconstructions, reaching back to just seconds before the big bang of the IE language explosion, we can barely see practice in the vocabulary of the PIE reconstructions. TLDR: Linguistics and archeology tells us what the original Paganism was like. Paul Theme says “”The oldest religious rites of Indo-European peoples do not presuppose temples or idols.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year Some people ascribe this saying to Yule time.

It was an odd experience for me:… Read more

Each of these are written by me using the principles I’ve learned from years of looking at spells in remaining Indo-European folk magic traditions and sources. 1. Please your House Spirits. Straighten up, sweep up, and clean up. Start by the suffumigation of the area with Juniper sprigs. Pour a wine offering in the wildest part on your property. Walk 3 sunwise circles about your home and enter. Place buttered bread on the window sill outside chanting the charm three times…. Read more

Imbolc, pronounced IM-olg or IM-olk, evolved into St. Brighid’s day, and is considered the first day of spring. St Brighid’s feast is a February 1st continuation of Imbolc pagan traditions. It is one of the four fire festivals celebrated by the ancient Celts. It probably occurred on what we consider Feb 11th, due to the shift to the gregorian calendar. But the Fire festivals are celebrated always on the kalends of the month sharing the same Irish name as the… Read more

I believe most everyone wants to be a hero in their heart but struggle with social consequences. A hero is one who discards those willingly, to do right. Read more

There are many kinds of Druids, and we come from different places and we approach our Druidry in many different, varied, and beautiful ways. I have come to understand one thing that they have in common: a profound love for Nature and the Earth. Read more
