just your average joe-wiccan looking for like-minded folks to chat
with and trade ideas/opinions/dead-baby-jokes (just kidding!... but
not really if you have any good ones...)
i've been seriously practicing and studying for the past fifteen-ish
years or so, most of it as an eclectic, now in more of a traditional
manner. my personal practice outside of coven work is very
influenced by eastern themes, especially buddhist philosophy and
meditation, and i enjoy learning about ritual, theory, and practice
from all different world traditions.
i look forward to contributing to this newsgroup and to meeting everyone in discussion.
Merry Meet and welcome!
There's not a lot of activity here at the moment, however if you ask a good
question I'm sure some interesting responses will come out of the woodwork.
We don't get much fresh blood, err, new faces these days (Dead Baby Joke
warning: what's blue and sits in a corner? A baby with a plastic bag over
its head. What's green and sits in a corner? Same baby, three months later)
Meanwhile, I'd encourage you to look through the extensive archives via
Google Groups and if you have any questions, please speak up.
Myself, I am an eclectic eclectic of no fixed path. I feel torn between
Liberal Quaker-style Christianity and neo-Wiccan Paganism when I'm feeling
spiritual, with a goodly with of general hedonism and skepticism thrown in
when I'm not. I describe myself as "a non-practicing agnostic" because its a
Koan. I like Koans.
My spiritual practice, such as it is, revolves around "hearth" activities,
mostly - I find making bread (by hand) a profoundly spiritual experience and
thats my main practice. Read into that all you like :-). And meditation for
me is drawing and painting, working with colour. And occasionally getting my
feet wet in the ocean. I'm on the east coast of Australia.
