I mentioned before that I’m helping out and mentoring people over at Open Path Sanctuary, an organization helping to educate, raise awareness, and further pagan and occult interests and knowledge in the southeast United States. They’re getting started with teaching some introductory courses, free and open to everyone, on the occult. They’re really neat, and it looks like an extremely helpful thing from beginners to adepts. If you’re an adept or expert yourself, or have a lot of experience in a given occult art, try volunteering; the project could always do with more knowledge to share.
In the meantime, while the main organizer of Open Path is busy, she asked me to write something as an appetizer for more substantial goodies to come. The resulting guest post, An Overview of Ancient Greek Religion, is up now, so head on over and check it out. Ancient Greece and the Mediterranean world is one of my interests and this was something easy to write about. Plus, since Greece was the source and root of so much, from the legal systems we use to various aspects of paganism and worship, a bit of history might do some good out there.
Yes! Please! Volunteers will be amply rewarded. (With, you know, that warm, fuzzy feeling that comes from helping out a new organization.) firstname.lastname@example.org
What a wonderful thing to volunteer your time on. I’ve often considered trying to pay back the community in such a way, but being in Canada.. and well, being a herbalist, there isn’t always the most suited outlet. I wish you and Open Path the best of luck!
