Slice of Life Polytheism

Not a bad idea for dealing with fallow periods, dark nights of the soul, etc.

Buta Craxanti

  1. Hello Galina! I’m a longtime lurker/reader of your blog. I just bought my first set of runes and will be purchasing your book Theory and Practice shortly. I’m eager to dive into the sacred mysteries and feel like I’m “coming home”.
