I'm a poet, polytheist, theologian and the majority of my writing is religious, of one flavor or another. I've written over twenty books covering a broad range of topics within contemporary Heathenry (Norse/Germanic polytheism), several devotionals (including a couple to Greco-Roman Deities), and I've edited several anthologies.

In general, I find it important to be wary of creeping monotheism, which one will find not only in academic discourse, but also within our communities. I find it best to always err on the side of individuality with the Gods. Until I was convinced through devotional practice or direct gnosis that Perchta and Frau Holle were the same, I'd approach Them as separate Deities Who happen to have similar spheres of influence.

“Our greatest responsibility is to be good ancestors.”   (Jonas Salk)”
Galina Krasskova, Honoring the Ancestors: A Basic Guide

“A good ritual facilitates, first and foremost, not only engagement with the Holy but the receptivity and vulnerability of head and heart space that makes that possible.”
Galina Krasskova, Devotional Polytheism: An Introduction

“Sigyn’s way takes such courage. Her way is a quiet way of personal mindfulness and dedication. It is a simple way. It is a terrifying way. Walking in Her footsteps means that there is no place to hide: no fine words, no angry posturing, no pride, no ego, no boasting–Her deeds are boast enough. There is nothing but what must be done and a heart committed to the doing. Sigyn’s way is simple: constancy of the heart, in the face of hatred, opposition, jealousy, slander, exhaustion, grief, anguish, rage, despair and a thousand other obstacles that life has a way of creating. She is constancy of purpose. […] She is vast, and Her strength is vast even as it is so completely unassuming. It simply is and will not be moved. She is the ‘Lady of Unyielding Gentleness’ for much the same reason. Her gentleness of spirit is Her shield and Her strength, and in it She is fierce. Her devotion is Her armor.”
Galina Krasskova, Sigyn: Lady of the Staying Power

“We expect God’s presence to be thunderous, spectacular, monumental; but it is our need that is so large. The real presence slips past our demands for spectacle. It slips past our despair.”
Tim Farrington, The Monk Downstairs
