Men’s Spirituality Today Who are the men who’ve chosen the Pagan path? They’re fathers, sons, brothers, and lovers, warriors, healers, and poets. They come from every background and profession, and they’re blazing trails into new social, cultural, and political territories, defining themselves in a faith community traditionally seen as dominated by women—yet they’ve been there all along!
Isaac Bonewits, one of America’s leading experts on ancient and modern Paganism, breaks new ground with this fascinating portrait of the fastest growing religious movement in the Western world. Drawing on interviews with over forty Pagan men—and his own forty years in the Neopagan community—he explores the issues and desires that have led tens of thousands of men to embrace Pagan spirituality. He examines the ways in which men have created, added to, and benefited from the Pagan experience, incorporating their own rituals, rites of passage, and symbols. The Pagan Man offers novices and experienced practitioners a wide range of practical information on every aspect of the Pagan lifestyle, including
Today’s most popular Pagan traditions
Sages, wise men, and well-known Pagans of our time
Bardic circles, drumming circles, and other Pagan gatherings
Drumming, dancing, and calling down the Gods
The nine virtues, codes of chivalry, and other core Pagan beliefs attracting men and boys today
Pagans and the Goddess—women as partners and Goddesses Frank, engaging, and inspirational, this book encourages Pagan men of every stripe—Wiccans, Druids, Norse Pagans, or even Masons—to step away from the shadows and stereotypes, and joyfully celebrate their own special relationships with the Gods and Goddesses of the New Old Religions.

This book is an attempt to show all the many things that male members of what are usually thought of as "female dominated" religions have done and are doing. I also try to give a voice to those Pagan men who have told me quietly over the years that they did not dare express their real feelings where Pagan women could hear them, for fear of being labeled as "bad" Pagans. While their feelings of being an "oppressed minority" may have been exaggerated, they were (and are) genuine feelings nonetheless. Pagan men are doing an amazing number of different and exciting things within this vibrant subculture. In this book I share some of those things and offer advice to future generations of Pagan men on how to live in ways they, their brothers, and their Pagan sisters will appreciate and honor. Unlike previous works on this topic, I included materials about Pagan men and boys in a wide variety of Mesopagan and Neopagan paths, including Asatru, Voodoo, Druidism, Hellenic & Roman Reconstructionism, etc., rather than just about Wicca (Neopagan Witchcraft).About the Author:
