Greetings-Newbie here

Hello everyone,

My name is Ivy. This is my first post but I have been lurking for a couple of weeks. I don't consider myself a Greek recon but a beginning Celtic recon, however, Hekate has been calling very strongly for many years and I don't feel that I can ignore her. I joined this group because from the posts that I have read you seem to be open-minded about (a) having a patron deity and (b) the blending of traditions as long as one is respectful of the culture and traditions of that culture. I don't mean that I want to blend pantheons in my worship or rituals but I would like to learn about both Greek and Celtic traditions and be respectful of both. Honestly, I may not go further in Greek recon than honoring Hekate as she is the one who is so strongly calling me at this time, but I will keep an open mind to other possibilities within in a Greek reconstructionist perspective.

I hope this doesn't offend anyone here. Again, I am new to reconstructionism although I have been an ecclectic pagan for many years. For the last few years I felt that I needed more focus and discipline and am now at the point that I am ready to commit to study.

If anyone is interested I recently joined a group called the Multicultural Polytheistic Hearth, here is the link: http://s2.excoboard.com/exco/index.php?boardid=5203
They seem like a nice group of people and are interested in respectful exchange between the cultures. There are mostly Celtic Recons there but it is a new group and they have different boards up for many cultures (including Hellenic) and they are open to suggestions.
