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.

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
I have once again started to observe the holy days for some of my gods. It is something I had always done but stopped when I started re-evaluating my path. Letting such an important aspect of my practice slide was … Continue reading
