Paganism

An Introductory Guide. Pagan holidays, beliefs, gods and goddesses, symbols, rituals, practices, and much more!

What is paganism? Is it a heretical faith that stands in opposition to Christianity? It is devil worship? The answer is no times three. “Paganism” does not refer to a single religion, but to a collection of earth-centric polytheistic philosophies that harken back to belief structures that pre-date Christianity.

Pagans of all types believe that there are many paths to reach a harmonious relationship with deity. No single one is more valid than another. Since pagans do not see the world as locked in a cosmic struggle between good and evil, they do not recognize the Christian concept of Satan nor do they worship him. Show More

Paganism: Introductory Guide

Odinist Ethics

Odinists are taught to cultivate the qualities of bravery and generosity. Although each branch of the faith may express these concepts in slightly different terms, the overall ethical nature of the belief is clear. This is a faith that is strongly based on concepts of personal honor and courage.
The Odinic Rite includes Nine Charges:

  • courage
  • truth
  • honor
  • fidelity
  • discipline
  • hospitality
  • self-reliance
  • industriousness
  • perseverance

The Odin Brotherhood teaches “strength over weakness, pride over humility, and knowledge over faith.”

By cultivating thoughtful practices, living a life of courage and honor, and fostering light and beauty, the members revere the gods.

Odinist Rites

New members who have reached the Age of Majority make a formal, public declaration of their beliefs by taking the Pledge of the Faith. The aspirant grasps the oath-ring while making their declaration.Show More

I love to write books about alternative religion, occult, and spirituality. My books are written for everyone in an easy to read and understandable style. Some of my other titles available on Amazon (and various other book retailers) are ” Wicca. The Practitioner’s Introductory Guide” (ISBN 978-1-941070-13-0) – ” Paganism” (ISBN 978-1-941070-43-7) and “Demonology: Sorting Fact From Fiction: A Field Guide Of Demons In Christianity” (ISBN 978-1-941070-31-4) …. and many more to come! Many of my titles are also available for Kindle on Amazon and as digital eBooks from various online retailers.

A great starting place!

A great starting place for anyone interested in Paganism in general or are just starting out on the Pagan path. This little gem of a book introduces you to the tools and pantheons used within general Paganism and Witchcraft/Druidry. Not for the advanced practitioner but definitely a wonderful resource for the Seeker!

Nice quick read.

This was a nice quick and easy read. It is meant for someone with no prior knowledge of paganism and its different paths. Someone that has been reading up on the subject will know the information in this book already.

The answer is no times three. “Paganism” does not refer to a single religion, but to a collection of earth-centric polytheistic philosophies that harken back to belief structures that pre-date Christianity.

Since pagans do not see the world as locked in a cosmic struggle between good and evil, they do not recognize the Christian concept of Satan nor do they worship him.

The notion of “pagan” as “heretic” is only valid when seen through the lens of Christianity. In her latest book, author Riley Starr offers a gentle introduction to the world of earth religions aimed at the beginner.

Using Wicca, Druidry, and Odinism as exemplars, Starr explains what it means to function both as a pagan within a group and as a sole practitioner. With suggestions for starting a ritualistic life and for adopting the use of protective symbols, Starr opens the door for new followers of paganism to take the first steps in their own journey and encourages them to embrace a lifelong study of the deities and symbols that speak exclusively to them.
