sophiacatherine: A sign to Tir na nOg (25 km away if you swim) (Tir na nOg sign)

I'm not really new on dreamwidth, but my fandom journal fell into disuse (a few years ago now). Still, I remembered dreamwidth when I wanted to set up an online journal. I have lots of places where I write about spiritual things, including my (paper) Druidry journal and my blog (not very often updated). I need somewhere where I might be inclined to write more often - things happen that disappear into the ether, thanks to my ridiculously poor memory. One discipline that I've kept up since the beginning of my Pagan spiritual journey, a couple of years ago, is taking photos - but they need commentary that I forget to add.

So here I am. I'm a Celtic polytheist (mainly Gaelic), a neo-Druid-in-training (exact flavour of Druidry currently undecided), and I've been Pagan for a bit less than a couple of years. I still have Christian influences in my spiritual awareness (including Celtic Christianity and Gnosticism) - although I'm mainly focused on the Paganism at the moment, and haven't decided whether, or to what extent, to include elements of Christianity. I'll work it out, one of these days.

In the 'rest' of my life, I'm a PhD student in the fields of sociology of religion and disability studies, and I also teach sociology. I've been involved in disability rights campaigning for about eighteen years, although I'm not particularly active with that at the moment, between the PhD and trying to get my head around a (fairly) new religious path. I'm married to my Girl and we have four furbabies (but the Girl calls them cats and hamster. She's heartless).

Online, I post at The Cauldron and UK Pagan messageboards. I co-host a podcast called Divine Community - we don't have time to produce it very often, but we enjoy it when we do. I'm on twitter as SophiaCandle - I'm there a fair bit. (Occasionally I have time for an offline life, too!)

I'll write an actual post with real content shortly.

Welcome to the community, such that it is;>.
Was involved with Celtic Nationalism and Reconstructionism in the late 80's. Was also involved with ADF until Isaac "buggered off" and historical material became "optional"....

Hi, nice to meet you. I'm a Heathen, and also an ADF Druid. I'm afraid I know little of the Celtic pantheon, as my gods are Germanic

Also, I am not on here much. This is just my record of my Dedicant Program materials for ADF. I am active on Facebook, however.

I'm very pleased to meet you. Yey for Queer Pagan Academics! There seem to be rather a large tribe of us gathering around the Interwebs.
