Well this is heartening to read over. 🙂
I admit, I didn’t read every single word, but I’ve been a touch concerned about what I was seeing back and forth about the “Devotional” and “Immersive” Polytheism.
I still find myself wanting – hoping even – to see these proposed categories defined each in their own right. Thus far I have only seen them each defined in opposition to another position, and that makes it harder for me to engage with them without feeling obliged to engage in the associated conflicts.
Responding to the post Mean People Suck Sannion of House of Vines offered to participate in an open forum to discuss the issue at hand.
Because emotions can get heated and defenses raised I am going to have to restrict who participates in the discussion to only those that are directly involved.
For this side of the discussion that would be the eight people ( five of which made videos about Immersive Polytheism) of whom fall under “that segment of the blogosphere no one pays attention to unless they’re stirring up controversy”
At this writing three of these people have agreed to participate in the open forum: myself (Cora Post), Camilla Laurentine of Foxglove and Firmitas (who coined the phrase Immersive Polytheism and made the first video on the subject) and Lykeia of Beloved the Light. If the other five people wish to later join the discussion they are welcome…
