  • Just a quick note
    I’ve updated my bio page with a link to Les Cabinets Des Polytheistes, where my story “Spine of the World” is published (and in which people can play Spot The Netjer if they are so inclined), and my less-specific webspace Suns in Her Branches, which is broader than this space (which is specifically for reconstructionist-derived […]

    And can be read here.Filed under: Patheos Links
  • Opet is coming ’round again
    And the Emboatening Crew is once more celebrating by making Kiva loans. You’re all welcome to join us. (My monthly column in Patheos Pagan is about Opet and charitable works, and will be going up tomorrow assuming nothing goes wrong.)Filed under: Festivals, Uncategorized
  • The Art of Being A God
    It’s interesting having one foot in reconstructionist religion and one foot in religious witchcraft, for a lot of reasons. One of the things that I’ve been thinking about lately is the shape of how the gods appear within the context […]
  • Mythopoeia
    Continuing with rambling on the topic of my exploration of pagan movement history, another critical concept: mythopoeia. The word means, literally, “myth-making”, and it is one of the near inescapable traits of at least the origin points of pagan religions. […]
  • Hills of the Horizon: The Past is Another Country
    The problem with extrapolation from history is that nothing is testable. The evolution of a religion over time is not a predictable and easily comprehensible thing, where we can look at a point in time and say, "It was like this then, so it would be like that now."

About This Website

My intent putting together this website is to accumulate a stable set of resources for how I am developing and have developed personal religious practices, as well as an archive of the things which I have built.

Partially, I want to be able to reference (for my own personal use) things that I have worked through; partially, I have answered a number of questions sufficiently often within various religious communities that I would like to be able to just point at my answers and save myself a good deal of time.

I also happen to find it useful to talk to an audience, even if nobody is actually listening, in order to organise my thoughts.

Peaceful Awakenings, which is my public research notes and related material from a reconstructionist standpoint, will be more frequently updated, at least when I am producing research, but those updates will continue to be primarily focused on reconstruction process.

Eventually, there will be connections to my other endeavours.
