Call for contributions – Changing Paths

Have you changed from one religion to another, or from a religion to none? Did the process take a long time or was it a sudden change?

I am writing a book to support people through the process of changing paths (leaving a religion, joining Paganism, or changing paths within Paganism).

I am looking for contributions of around 1500-3000 words from people who have joined a Pagan tradition from elsewhere, or left a Pagan tradition for another path.

I am especially interested in people who have left Paganism and then rejoined it, and people who have joined a Pagan tradition from a religion other than Christianity.

What annoyed you about the religion you left? What attracted you about the religion or path that you joined?

Contributions from marginalized people (disabled, BIPOC, LGBTQ2SIA, neurodiverse) are especially welcome. Were you marginalized within the tradition you left? Is that still the case with the tradition you joined?

Email for contributions is yaburrow@gmail.com

Stanton Drew is one of the largest stone circles in Britain. It’s made of red sandstone from the Mendip Hills nearby. I love it.
