New Shrines – Call for Material

Raven Kaldera contacted me yesterday to let me know that he’s going to be creating several new virtual shrines and to find out if I or anyone I know would like to participate.

The new shrines will be to Hades (in honor of all the new dead), the hero Cuchulain, and the Goddess Brigid. He said there is no deadline; they’ll put material up on the shrines as it comes in, once the shrines themselves are created.  They’re looking for poems, prayers rituals, personal essays, anything people would like to write. Folks should send it to this email – attn: Raven, virtual shrines. 

I (Galina) have submitted a prayer to Hades but am otherwise unaffiliated with these shrines. I love the idea of virtual shrines though. I was dubious about them at first, but we spend so much of our time online in modern society that they’re really the digital equivalent of little roadside shrine nooks where you can light a candle, offer a quick prayer, and be on your way. I think they serve a valuable purpose in granting even this, our digital world, the potential for holiness.

  1. A shine for Brighid? Oh, how wonderful! I’m certainly going to have to submit some things for that oshrine at least.

    I recently started getting involved with some kind of Hellenic practice, though it’s very complicated, and I’m still in the process of figuring it out and how it’s going to influence or impact my overall practice, especially incorperating things. But Hades is someone I’m starting to honor, connected to one of the goddesses I’m starting to worship more often. If I feel inspired, I’ll try to write and submit something for his shrine as well. Too soon to tell.

    I love the shrines hosted over on the Northern Tradition Paganism site, been wanting to submit poetry to a few of them, but thought it was too late for that.
