Help us put on a Pan-Polytheist Hospitality Suite at Pantheacon! Strong Roots and Wide Branches, a Polytheist learning community, is hosting a hospitality suite at PantheaCon 2017. Our suite will provide dedicated shrine spaces to Ancestors and Gods from a variety of traditions. We will also provide Polytheist-focused classes, rituals, workshops, and spiritual triage services. We are dedicated to providing inclusive, safe and welcoming space for con attendees.

Many Gods West Reportback

I am now a monthly columnist at The Wild Hunt. My first piece is a reportback on the Many Gods West conference.

Drought and Religion, ACTION

I have a guest post at The Wild Hunt entitled “Drought and Religion” about the current ongoing drought in California, historical and contemporary polytheist perspectives on drought’s religious implications, and the history of drought-related to political and economic conflicts.

I also have an interview entitled “Ancestors, Ancient Culture, and Old Gods” in the Litha 2015 issue of ACTION, the newsletter of the Alternative Religions Education Network (AREN). Sadly, this is the last issue of ACTION, by mutual decision of Christopher Blackwell (Editor and Chief Reporter) and Bill Kilborn (Web Guy).

I have an essay for Gods and Radicals entitled “Are The Gods On Our Side?” I use Guan Di as a case study to analyze the implications of both sides of a conflict (such as the class struggle) praying to the same god(s).
