About Patch and this Blog
-I'm known on the internet as Patch.
I have been a practising Hellenic polytheist for 4 years.
- After following a re-con methodology for a number of years, I became unable to ignore the call to witchcraft and so here I am today exploring how this fits into my practice.
This blog primarily deals with devotional worship, Hellenic polytheism, pagan living and a whole lot of navel gazing.

Before my life was taken up by looking at bacteria in blood and faeces (believe it or not, I actually chose this career), I was looking to bring about some important changes in my spiritual practice. For now this has … Continue reading
I didn’t do a pagan blog project post last week as I just didn’t have the time. I technically still don’t have time, and so this post does not go into half as much detail as I would have liked … Continue reading
Yet another post as part of the Pagan Blog Project. Just in case the last few posts have not made this clear, spiritual cleanliness plays a large role in my regular spiritual practice. It ranges from taking a shower after intercourse before … Continue reading
I generally do not celebrate the neopagan wheel of the year outside of large, non-specific community gatherings. However Imbolc is an exception. I adore this time of year because spring is just around the corner (bringing with it warmth, new growth and … Continue reading
