Celtic Polytheism- Online Discussion Groups

May 30, 2014 at 11:24 pm 5 comments

In my last update of the Celtic Polytheism Resource page, I mentioned my disappointment that online discussion seems to have greatly decreased. I have since discovered that much of it has migrated from Livejournal and Yahoo groups to Facebook. The only constant thing is change- before LJ and Yahoo there was PODSNET, USENET, and before that Pagans communicated mostly with mimeographed newsletters! Anyhow there are so many that I am making this separate page. Each group has its own focus, and slightly different rules, so please keep that in mind in your participation. As always with my resource lists, this is a work in progress.

Facebook Groups: Some are private/closed, so if you prefer you can keep your membership hidden, or create a profile that uses a religious or other assumed name. Since almost all are closed, I’m now only making note of the public ones!

    You might enjoy the Polytheistic Community Forum, which is mostly Gaelic polytheists. It’s a small forum at the moment, but growing.

    Glad to see the Cauldron SIG here – I co-moderate it. Not that I do very much work, as it isn’t very active, alas.
