Purification: 30 Days of LBRP

Here we go again….writing about the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram. Recently, Hekate has placed me upon a path of Dedication to Hermes. I attended Dark Moon Devotionals to Her and Hermes for a year, with the exception of Disneyland and husband working late once. Even during these times of what I considered to be a spiritual failure the …

PBP: “D” is for Detoxing, Deflecting and Dirt, The 2014 Pantheacon Report

Day One: I arrived way too early for enjoying anything: the bars, vending room and hospitality suites were still not open, many people were still arriving and the only thing to do was sit under a tree for joints and grounding. I just really wanted to avoid traffic to San Jose. Dirt: No one has dirts like my boys from …

PBP: “A” is for ABRAHADABRA

Last March I began attending a public dark moon devotional in honor of Hekate and Hermes. Now, anyone who has been reading my blog for ANY length of time already knows I am very partial to Our Lady of the Crossroads. Except for the occasional Luciferian consort, my work with Hekate has developed into sort of henotheistic path (who was …

PBP: “S” is for Sacrificial Schedules

As a polytheist, keeping a schedule is probably the most important tool in my arsenal of things which keep my spirituality running smoothly. It’s not that I am obsessive/compulsive, it’s just that when one has obligations to so many spirits and deities, it is important to keep everyone satiated… otherwise there can be problems. For example, I give sacrificial offerings …

PBP: “P” is for Procrastination by Piety

For the most part, people are spiritually lazy. Even the fundies who spend more time protesting, planning protests, and praying for the conversion of everyone is doing it ALL in vain. The Neopagan community is not a good example of a pious people either… most only celebrate their pagan ways at the turning of the year or at festivals. What …

PBP: “G” is for Gnosis, as Unverified and Personal

In all the 25 plus years I have spent studying religions, philosophy, foreign cultures, all the other humanities stuff both personally and academically, the term “Unverified Personal Gnosis” never came up. It was not until I actually joined an organization, ADF (Ár nDraíocht Féin), that I came to understand the place it serves in the Pagan community as a growing …

Liminal Book Review: A History of Pagan Europe

A History of Pagan Europe by Nigel Pennick and Prudence Jones; Routledge, London, England. Published originally in 1995, revised 2001. 288 pages. Whilst I am very drawn to the Eastern ‘pantheons’ of Buddhas and Bodhisattva s, my DNA wants to connect and find things in common other than ancestry.

Something different, Something liminal…

What exactly is a psychopomp? When I first heard this term within the context of my Dedicant Druidic training with Ár nDraíocht Féin (ADF) I thought to myself: So it is a shortened version of a psychotic, pompous deity? Because there very well could be some huffy-puffiness among the Kindred…hubris is often something left to mortals, after all. In actualty, …
