Yvonne Aburrow is the author of a great many powerful Pagan and Wiccan books, including "All Acts of Love and Pleasure: Inclusive Wicca." Their most recent is Changing Paths, and members of the Missing Witches coven contributed some of their own stories about the complicated how's and why's of changing spiritual pathways.
Join Yvonne and the coven as we investigate these stories, and the insights Yvonne discovered while gathering material for this much-needed book.
"Are you leaving a religion, entering Paganism, leaving Paganism, changing traditions within it, or leaving religion altogether? Changing Paths is a companion for the journey.
How do you explain your new path to friends, family, former co-religionists, and yourself? How do you extricate yourself from your previous tradition and its associated ideas? How do you unpack your complex feelings about your path and why you are changing direction?
Individuals have many reasons for leaving a faith, including being in conflict with bad theology, bristling against a high-control religion, and disagreeing with conservative positions on gender, sexuality, and the body. Changing Paths offers resources for examining religious attitudes to gender, sexuality, other religions, and whether your religion supports you effectively through life’s ups and downs.
There are various routes into Paganism and Changing Paths offers resources on how to decide which tradition is right for you, how you know you’re a member of a group, and reasons for joining a group—or not. Exercises, journal prompts, and reflections explore how to deal with unexamined baggage from your previous tradition, the role of leaders, and how to find a beloved community.
You aren’t alone in your journey. A range of contributors who have trod this same path—from a former Christian who is now a Wiccan to a former Pagan who now avoids labels—also share their experience and wisdom."
Missing Witches is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
