Lon Sarver is a Dionysian devotee, polytheist, and editor living and working in the San Francisco Bay Area. He’s studied Reclaiming and Feri witchcraft, rune-lore, Goetia, Thelema, and been initiated into Central Valley Wicca. For several years, he was a professional tarot reader at an Oakland occult shop.
He’s a polytheist because the thought that the gods are limited and many seems more comforting than the thought that they are one and omnipotent and just don’t care. Also, the world sure looks like it was designed and run by committee, doesn’t it?
In addition to his relationship with Dionysos, he is currently bothered by a troupe of thematically linked but culturally diverse gods and spirits. Which is most of what he writes about here. They include, in no particular order, the woman in the falcon cloak, the blue guy with the wings and the devil-may-care attitude, the dead guy in the top hat, and the couple who have largely given up trying to convince people that they aren’t a pair of archetypal collectives. And the dead. Never forget the dead.
He’s also been a relationship coach and Marriage and Family Therapist Intern, has degrees in psychology and counseling psychology, and can hold forth at length on religion, role playing games, and why feminism is a good thing for everyone so cut it out with this equalism/humanism crap already.
