Talking My Path: Christyann Boling

[Welcome to our column, Talking My Path. Here, polytheists, witches, and Pagans of any tradition are invited to discuss and celebrate their spirituality in a series of five short questions. If you would like to participate, don’t hesitate to email Rebecca Buchanan at]

ev0ke: How do you define your particular tradition or path? Does it have a specific name?

CB: I see it as being able to connect with nature and finding my inner peace. I call it Wicca.

ev0ke: Which Deities, powers, or other spirits are honored in your tradition?

CB: It just depends on what pantheon you chose from. Right now I am focusing on the Triple Goddess and the Horned God.

ev0ke: Among the various festivals and holy days celebrated in your tradition, which is the most important to you, and why?

CB: Mabon is the most important to me, because it signals a change and gives me a chance to reflect on things I want to accomplish. It lets me know I still have time, but also lets me know I need to finish my goals.

ev0ke: Which texts, websites, or other resources would you recommend to someone interested in your tradition?

CB: I recommend that people go to their local metaphysical store, the library, or even find a group in their area.

ev0ke: Is there anything you would like to add, such as creative projects you are undertaking, festivals or events you will be attending, and so on?

CB: I think it’s important to network with people in your area, so I am looking forward to attending some of events.
