The Pagan Experience: Personal Practice

After some prodding by Himself and some encouragement from friends, I'm taking a stab at the Pagan Experience Project. I'm not necessarily going to do every prompt all the time, but if the prompt elicits good thinky thoughts, I'll share them. I've decided to start with week two's prompt on personal practices.

Loki's not a terribly formal Deity, and and so many of my practices are not either; I share morning coffee with Him every day; I meditate once a day; ideally I do yoga, but that practice is a work in progress.

For Freyr and Gerda, I have plants that I care for - mostly herbs; I have one particular bromeliad that is Loki's, because it was given to Him at a public ritual, but the rest are for Them. I am working my way toward a vertical garden, because I'd like to grow more of my own food.

Freyja wants self-care and self-love. (I hear y'all snickering) A lot of my practice with Her involves witchy stuff, and since it's Mystery work, and it's not really bloggable.

My kindred has a group practice that is (in)famous, and that is Dramatic Readings of poorly written erotica. This group practice can conducted in person or online (think Skype or Google Hangouts) and be augmented with alcoholic beverages if you're of age, inclined, and not driving. Pour Loki a drink, hail Him, and let the group begin. Participants take turns reading and making MST3Kstyle commentary.

It's all great fun...FOR HIM.
