Ramble On: Wisteria Summer Solstice

(I’m currently on the road visiting some Pagan Festivals and bookstores. “Ramble On” is my travel journal chronicling some of those experiences. Last week I was at the Wisteria Summer Solstice celebration at the Wisteria Nature Retreat in Southeastern Ohio.) I’ve never been sick at a Pagan Festival before, until last week’s Summer Solstice Celebration [Read More...]

The Strange Triumph of Cernunnos over Pan

If you’ve ever read the book Triumph of the Moon by Ronald Hutton you are probably familiar with a chapter in it called “Finding a God.” Hutton’s argument there is that the Horned God became “the god” of Modern Paganism due to the popularity of the Greek God Pan with early 19th Century English Poets.

In a few days I’m heading out East to visit three and a quarter Pagan Festivals (one of them is just a day thing so it counts as a quarter). I’ll be gone from my house for over a month and will probably return home with a soar back and smelling of patchouli. The idea [Read More...]

Not all Pagans are polytheists; I know a good many atheist Pagans, and there are a lot of Pagans who believe that all the gods throughout [Read More...]

I can’t believe that I’m here on Patheos; posting next to The Pagan Soccer Mom and sharing bandwidth with Bristol Palin (please let there be a Holiday Party!). It’s all pretty awesome, and a little bit intimidating. Before going any further, I’ve got to give a huge thank you to Jason Pitzl-Waters for suggesting that [Read More...]
