We Polytheists Are the Biggest Threat to Polytheism

By Galina Krasskova

[Snip] I’ve been really disturbed lately with certain trends I see in the polytheist communities and it’s taken me over a month to really parse out why. I mean, I support a great deal of the social activism that I see going on within our various communities. I think our commitment to . . . → Read More: We Polytheists Are the Biggest Threat to Polytheism

Dêwoi – The Gods of Gaulish Polytheism

By Segomâros Widugeni

The Nature of the Gods: The Gods are by far the best known part of Gaulish Polytheism. We have a vast corpus of Latin inscriptions that give us the names of numerous divinities worshiped by Gauls, and a much smaller corpus of Gaulish-language inscriptions, sometimes to the same deities. We have representations . . . → Read More: Dêwoi – The Gods of Gaulish Polytheism

Gods, Myth, and Ritual in Naturalistic Paganism

By John Halstead

Not all Naturalistic Pagans use theistic language, but some do. The use of “god language” by non-theists can be confusing.

I don’t think we – any of us—go into this work prepared. This is a huge deficit. It’s this, more than any other factor . . . → Read More: More on Breaking and the Gods

The Book of Lies, by Richard Metzger (ed.)

The Disinformation Guide to Magick and the Occult

Reviewed by J Simpson

I don’t know about you, but when I hear the word “grimoire,” I think of dusty old tomes full of alchemical esoterica and glyphs in some cobwebbed book shoppe that smells of sandalwood, possibly helmed by a bearded man in a fez.

Ritual and Sacrifice in Hellenismos

A sacrifice to the Gods is a way of bonding, of kharis. It’s a way of showing our devotion to the Gods and bringing Them, actively, into our homes and lives.

Gods: More Like People Than You Think

By Devo

Non-physical relationships can be a real pain to figure out. There aren’t any self-help books on them, and trying to get a communication style that works well can be challenging to say the least. Due to the nature of non-physical relationships, I think it’s common for people to flail and get scared when . . . → Read More: Gods: More Like People Than You Think

Food for the Gods

Link of Vodou to Haiti’s Agriculture, a Legacy of the Ancestors

By Dady Chery

Haitian religion and culture are so linked to local agriculture that Vodou ceremonies are routinely called manje lwa: food for the gods. Our lwa (gods, spirits, deities) must be fed. They are not eternal and can only exist so long . . . → Read More: Food for the Gods

Blood Sacrifice and Contemporary Polytheism

By Christos Pandion Panopoulos

Sacrifice and especially the Blood Sacrifice is the central single act of worship within the Hellenic Religion, around which all other acts of worship revolve.

Ceremonies of a communal . . . → Read More: Blood Sacrifice and Contemporary Polytheism

By Jason Miller

One of the great things about Strategic Sorcery is that we have a very large (over 400 people) and active community that, for the most part, conducts itself with composure and compassion and keeps its focus squarely on the work at hand.

It is can be an awesome and inspiring thing to . . . → Read More: Judging Your Results Against Others
