Edited by Janet Munin
Polytheistic Monasticism: Voices From Pagan Cloisters is an anthology of writings from the forefront of the first wave of experimental monastic spirituality in the modern polytheist-animist revival.
In this groundbreaking anthology, contemplative practitioners tell their stories of exploring classic monastic disciplines such as eremitic life, asceticism, retreat, service, and simplicity.
"The essays which comprise Polytheistic Monasticism are heart-felt, lyrical, and insightful. While the contributors to this anthology have each found their own way to monasticism, and are developing their own practices, their commitment to their calling is soul deep. As monastics, they strive for divine union; through prayer and work, they seek to become a meeting place between the spirit world and human world, to cultivate both inner and outer sacred space. Their creativity, devotion, discipline, and dedication are an inspiration to polytheists everywhere. "--Rebecca Buchanan, editor of Eternal Haunted Summer
