On Differentiation: It Isn’t about “You”

By Theanos Thrax

There is a lot of conversation right now in the circles making up the Polytheist Movement, about differentiating polytheist religion (and its affiliated aforementioned movement, which must be understood as a human-rights movement organized around the premise of religious freedoms and identity dynamics) from other unrelated-but-intersecting social justice considerations and activisms. When . . . → Read More: On Differentiation: It Isn’t about “You”

The Revolt of Remembering

By Rhyd Wildermuth

When we tell the story of modern Paganism, we tell a history as we understand it. But all history is only selective memory, a collection of what we choose to remember or what we know to include. The sum total of humanity’s experience cannot be recollected except by the sum total of . . . → Read More: The Revolt of Remembering

Towards a Pagan Politics

By Kadmus

We all must begin in our own way. How does a pagan address capitalism?

To answer this question I feel the need to make clear and sure the foundation of my own views on paganism’s relation to politics. If, as pagans, we are called to a social mission and not just a spiritual . . . → Read More: Towards a Pagan Politics

Rewilding, Eco-feminism, and the Reclaimation of Magic

By Danielle Prohom Olson

Okay so lets start by going back to the very beginning – women and wild food. Because once upon a time all food was wild – and it was the women who gathered it. But what we’ve forgotten today was that no aspect of food, from harvest to preparation to consumption, . . . → Read More: Rewilding, Eco-feminism, and the Reclaimation of Magic

Guerilla Wizardry: DIY Spiritual Pat(c)hwork

By The Dizzy Wizard

Mainstream religious thought is rife with oppressive doctrine, patriarchy, and bigotry. Global history is colored by the death that deity worship has caused, yet many of those who deny spiritual practice have adapted or acknowledged the beneficial tenets that are professed by most faiths. That is to say, in all things . . . → Read More: Guerilla Wizardry: DIY Spiritual Pat(c)hwork

Restoring Sovereignty and the Path Forward

By Brennos

The world we have inherited is one where the Sovereignty of the Land has been broken. It’s not a single person’s fault. It’s not a specific generation’s fault. Throughout history, humanity has made a series of choices that have separated us from the spirit of the land, from the Otherworld, from nature itself. . . . → Read More: Restoring Sovereignty and the Path Forward

Honor and Privilege

“I Don’t Think That Word Means What You Think It Means”

By Christopher Scott Thompson

The topic of “honor” is of interest to some heathens and pagans, especially those who see themselves as being on a “warrior path.” According to the “Heathen Handbook” of the Wodens Folk Kindred:

Honor is the foundation of heathen society. . . . → Read More: Honor and Privilege

Panphage/Pangenetor

By Avalon2012

In his book Apocalyptic Witchcraft, as well as his shorter essay Rewilding Witchcraft, one of Peter Grey’s central arguments is that contemporary paganism has been tamed by the standards of urbane bourgeois consumer society and the capitalist system that underlies it. He mocks what I call “Lifestyle Paganism” which he sees as a . . . → Read More: Panphage/Pangenetor

Can You Really Keep Your Religion Out of Your Politics?

By Brennos

Doing any sort of activism work will inevitably lead to some criticism by members of your community, at least it will if you are doing it right. Demanding relevant change in the world makes people who are complacently comfortable in their lives, positions, and viewpoints profoundly uncomfortable. This comfortable complacency is often one . . . → Read More: Can You Really Keep Your Religion Out of Your Politics?

Why Goddess Feminism, Activism, or Spirituality?

By Mary Saracino

I believe in the primacy of women—females are the great Cosmic womb from which all life flows. I believe in the Dark Mother’s values of sharing, caring, equality, cooperation, and transformation—values that all humans carry in our DNA (if only we would listen). I believe that war is evil and that Love . . . → Read More: Why Goddess Feminism, Activism, or Spirituality?
