A Southern gay man writing about my experiences on my religious journey. Largely influenced by my Irish heritage, my faith heavily leans on Irish Celtic Reconstruction: an attempt to bring what we know of pre-Christian Irish religion into the modern age in a way that it might have naturally evolved over time. I’m also a practitioner of Southern folk magic, mainly charms and trinkets, for health and protection. My practice of magic is sometimes related to my religion, sometimes not.
I’m also an academic scholar of religion focusing on non-Christian religions of the Americas, so you’ll find things here that I find generally fascinating or that I think are good things to be disseminated into the greater Polytheist and Pagan communities that may be completely unrelated to my own practice. Building a stronger sense of unity within these communities is important to me as well, so knowing a bit about each other’s paths can be nothing but useful.
