About me

Industry Publishing
Occupation Author, Editor, Artist
Location Wabanahkik, Turtle Island
Introduction A Gaelic Polytheist in the diaspora, committed to protection of water, land, language & culture, & deep involvement in the surviving ancestral customs as part of a modern spiritual practice. Raised diasporan Gael, I also have Indigenous heritage from Turtle Island & Sápmi - hence my family, community & values.

One of the founders of the modern Gaelic Polytheism / Celtic Reconstructionist movement - a collective effort to preserve the living Gaelic cultures and to preserve, revive and restore the earth-honouring spiritual traditions of my ancestors - I'm an author, editor and artist, ban-sagart Brìghde, researcher, and practical mystic. Co-author/editor of The CR FAQ - An Introduction to Celtic Reconstructionism as well as numerous articles, primarily in the fields of religion, politics, and music criticism.

That can't really be a fish you're standing on, can it?

Yes, actually, it is. It swam down from Tobhar Segais and was kind enough to let me hang for the ride. What do you mean you've never seen a salmon as big as a dolphin?
