After a life long interest in comparative religion, I finally answered the call of shamanism almost 20 years ago. I have traveled throughout the world to experience and learn first hand how the mysteries of life have come to be expressed, blessed, honored and lived in differing lands and cultures. I have studied and been initiated into different cultural traditions and now ONE GODS represents my return to my earthly roots, my cultural and ancestral Jewish heritage, the people of the Tanakh.
I have always seen myself as a pagan. While the word has become pejorative, “pagan” simply means countryside or peasant, someone who lives close to the land and in harmony with nature. To those who stop to listen, each landscape has its own vibratory essence, its own music if you will. It was (and still is) pagan peoples who have been nourished by this knowledge, and who have held it in sacred trust through oral, and more recently, written teachings. As the Mystic Pagan, it is my goal to study, explore and experience these knowledges, the wisdom of the land, and it’s various cultural expressions.
You can reach me at Arteagle5 AT aol.com. Please put Mystic Pagan in the title so I know to open it.
