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.

On Tuesday, I packed up, moved out of my dorm; and came home after my first year of university. I wrapped all my sacred items in tissue paper for the journey home, gave thanks to any spirits that may reside in … Continue reading
This week I have done some much needed checking in with some of my gods. It’s been bitter-sweet though, and left me at a crossroad. I had asked for guidance. I got the answer that I knew was the right thing all … Continue reading
I needed last week. Whilst on holiday over easter, I walked down beaches and in woods; identifying the wild flowers as I went. I read lots and sat in the sun. Upon my return, I met with friends old and … Continue reading
